From The Vault | Danny "Magoo" Chandler
The true legends of motocross usually posess more than just speed and talent on a motorcycle and Danny "Magoo" Chandler is a true legend in every sense of the word. With off-track charisma that matched his on-track determination, agression, and speed, Magoo was a tough competitor during his prime. Through his never-give-up attitude and unforgettable antics, Danny earned the nickname "Wild Child", as he raced to numerous wins and accolades before a tragic crash at the 1985 Paris Supercross left him parlyzed. Since that time, Danny was a major proponent for motorcycle safety until his untimely passing at the age of 50.
