Being a visitor on this site tells me one of two things about you. One: you are a fan of motocross racing. Or two: you recently heard about it and are curious about what it entails. For either reason, this site is a good place for you to browse. This page in particular if you are new to the motocross world.
Allow me to introduce you to the basics and getting involved.
Motocross in a nutshell, is racing on a motorcycle on off-road circuits. The sport is designed to be difficult. You’d want to visit RAC.co.uk, or another insurer before you progressed, that’s for sure. The terrain is a mish mash of fixtures, some of which are natural like a hill, and man-made fixtures that make the race a little more interesting. Jumps, fast straights and the like.
Getting a bike
If you are seriously considering taking up the sport yourself, make sure you ask an expert which bikes are the best for a beginner. Local bike shops have employees with this knowledge. You can also ask other bikers. Remember, your first bike doesn’t need to be fancy. Just make sure you can handle it before you purchase.
Begin by getting comfortable with your bike. You need the basics memorised before you do anything too reckless. Ride the bike around the track. Only when you’re comfortable riding sitting down, do you attempt to stand up. Make sure your arms and legs are bent to absorb the shock of the bumps beneath your wheels.
In time you will discover you are brave enough to do more than go straight. Just don’t expect to be a pro from the beginning. And remember you are going to get hurt. Even if you don’t do tricks, the sport still has an element of danger. So take care of yourself.
