Standing in the hot sun, freezing rain, dust, and fumes and noises all day... people ask why we do it? it is all for a chance to watch some of the worlds best athletes duke it out as they fly past the fence up hills, over jumps and through whoops that most people wouldnt want to walk through.
and next time you try to say your sport is better, that motocross is only twisting the throttle - try roaring off of a starting gate with 40 of the worlds best riders, around a tight corner and into 3 foot whoops, over 80 foot doubles, and around corners at 40 mph through any weather and terrain conditions you can imagine, week in and week out, banging bars with the worlds elite, and you will quickly see why it is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world.
if you make it to the end of the season, your work is not done. the training never ends... you immediately start training for the next series and trying to eliminate your weaknesses, improve on your strenghts, dial in your bike and find that next level of speed to beat the competition.
all of the dirt, grime, pain, mud, funes, noise, and hard work and determination are what make up a true motocross rider... but the thrill of firing up your bike, the adrenaline of a jump, and the exhilaration of a win make all of it worth it in a minute
this is motocros...
motocross is the 2nd most physically demanding sport
