Considered one of the most important motorcycle documentaries ever made, “On Any Sunday” (1971) is required viewing for anyone who rides on two wheels or is the least bit interested in motorcycle racing. The film is often credited for turning on an entire generation to the sport of motorcycle racing, which had previously lived under the shadow of other popular sports.
The enormous impact of “On Any Sunday” is no doubt due in part to Steve McQueen’s role as both producer and star of the film.
