GLORY DAYS: Adolf Weil
From the brain steam of Mike Webb and Carl Ribaudo Photos from the camera of Mark Kiel
Behind a pair of sunglasses he could easily be mistaken for movie star Paul Newman, but on the GP motocross tracks of Europe he was feared. Adolf Weil was one of the most winning GP motocross racers- who never won a world championship. AW finished second in the in 1977 250 GP’s, three times he finished third in the 500 class and was the German National Motocross champion fourteen times! Incredibly he was nearly a decade older than the guys he was competing against in one of the most physically demanding sports on the planet. How did he do it? AW was in superb physical condition and unlike his competitors of that time who changed brands most every year Adolf raced Maico’s his entire career. Weil was such an integral part of developing Maico’s they actually branded their line of motocross bikes when they brought out the 1976 AW 250, 400 and 450 as a tribute. Adolf touched the heart of America in 1973 when he won the Trans-AMA championship at 34 years old. Adolf was born in 1938 and passed away unexpectedly in 2011.
