with a pelvic injury that nearly ended his career Mike Duff started the 500cc race of the 1967 Canadian grand prix from the back row with a pusher to help him get started. He went on to finish on the podium. 50 years later i had the honor of giving Michelle Duff & the Arter Matchless a push to start the legends race. Very cool to have a front row seat to history. #michelleduff #mikeduff #artermatchless #matchless #g50

In case anyone has still not seen this... Old #NFB short about the great Michelle Duff in her early days of Grand Prix racing. She is our only real classic Canadian road racing hero. Yes, she used to be Mike Duff, but that is not remotely the most interesting part of her life. Get on YouTube and search Michelle Duff Ride for Your Life. #MichelleDuff ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ
