This trio of (l to r) Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey and Gary Goodfellow led the way at the 1987 Trans-Atlantic Match Race Series. The North Americans trounced the British Commonwealth team with U.S. riders winning all nine races. Rainey won five, but it was Kevin Schwantz, who scored four wins, earning the honors of top scorer. Goodfellow, riding for the North American squad, took third in the standings. This event served as a primer for the upcoming GP duels between Rainey and Schwantz, which would begin the next season. The two went at it the entire way, making huge fans of thousands of British race goers.
