Torleif Hansen flying on his Husqvarna 250

No, this photo wasn't done with tele lens ! Just standard 80mm on my beloved East German 6x6 Pentaconsix camera...you can notice trees in the background are still in focus...simply I was very close to track and Torleif hit jump bit on his right side of the track, seeing me right on his way he has turned his front wheel left trying to avoid me and he did, and I jumped back too.. He was frightened as much as I was... but we became good friends and photo is unique ! Done during practice for the Polish 250 MX GP 1968, you can believe me after he was riding more on his left side, and I was staying one meter backward after that - so I have only one photo like this! It was published in Petersen Annual and in Swedish "mc-nytt" magazine.
