Motocross -- A Motorcycle Sport

Motocross is not a sport to "play with". Motocross (often shortened to MX or MotoX) is a form of motorcycle sport or all-terrain vehicle racing held on enclosed off-road circuits. Motocross is a motorcycle racing sport featuring either dirt tracks or artificial courses. Motocross is derived from the French, and traces its origins to British Scrambling competitions. Motocross is distinct from other forms of motor sport in having a mass start, where all the riders line up alongside each other, starting simultaneously and racing the race distance, with the first rider across the finish line the winner. Motocross tracks are often quite large (around 1 to 2 miles) and incorporate natural terrain features with varying amounts of man made jumps and other features. Motocross matches can include a combination of these laps, which are then combined to give the riders a cumulative score for the event.


Motocross also began to grow in popularity in the United States during this period, which fueled an explosive growth in the sport. Motocross bikes are constructed with special designs for equipment such as pedals these are built to fold, which reduces the possibility of damage in a fall. Motocross is a rich and diverse sport, featuring highly skilled riders on the pro circuit, riding machines that have been tuned to the highest performance standards possible.


Unusually for racing machines, motocross bikes can be purchased in a ready-to-race or nearly ready-to-race condition at moderate prices from major motorcycle manufacturers. The latest craze is adult racing on miniature (50cc-125cc) motorcycles called mini bikes or Pit-Bikes. People began "hopping up" the bikes and racing them against each other. Pit-bike racing has taken a turn towards mini-moto (Supermoto) also, usually racing on go-kart and tight, small vehicle tracks. The bikes are fitted with special road racing tires and are "grooved" to grip both the pavement and dirt. At this same time other professional riders were having custom chassis built by JP Racing and Lauger racing.

Motocross can be an entry sport for motor sports in general. Motocross racing is one of the most visually appealing forms of motor sports, with riders performing seemingly death-defying leaps, turns visibly at the edge of traction (as indicated by a sliding, spinning rear tire "roosting" dirt at all behind it), and the effort of riders clearly visible as they move their bodies around their motorcycles to balance the bikes for maximum speed. Motocross was first known as a British off-road event called Scrambles, which were themselves an evolution of Trials events popular in northern Britain. Motocross also began to grow in popularity in the United States during this period, which fueled an explosive growth in the sport. Motocross racers now get their heart rate up to around 180 to 190 beats per minute and hold it there for about 35 minutes. Motocross has evolved from races in the early days to spectacular freestyle events where riders perform their best and craziest tricks for all to see.
