"We have another great line up of legends for Thor MX Rewind" said Unadilla''s Greg Robinson. "It''s hard to believe that we are celebrating the 5th Anniversary of this great weekend of vintage racing. It''s wonderful to have these outstanding legends with us to remember "the good ole days". Over the years we''ve heard and seen a lot of funny moments from our legends. Our fans are always surprised at how approachable the legends are and how easy it is to get that treasured picture and autograph. To have them all in one place at the same time reliving motocross history is simply priceless. Every decade of our racing history is represented by one or more of these legends and each one has more than one unique story to share. My sister and I couldn''t be more thrilled or honored to have them all with us this year."
