Motocross is a sport based on the simple joy of riding dirt bikes to their fullest. As with all sports, there are fan boys
(the people who root for crashes and confrontations), but in general, motocross is ruled by those
who twist the throttle. Though few in comparison
to the stick-and-ball sports, motocross racers are
a passionate group. We invest heavily in pursuing
our racing dreams. How so? Anyone with $20 to
cover the cost of a ball and an open field can play
soccer. Motocross, on the other hand, requires
a laundry list of necessary items—a motorcycle,
protective gear and fuel are the bare essentials,
plus you need a proper mode of transportation.
There are also maintenance costs, gate fees and
Band-Aids. Motocross may not be as expensive as
Formula 1, but it is not a poor man’s sport.
