The sport of motocross is becoming more and more like stick-and-ball sports. Just as baseball grooms its
young up-and-comers in the minor leagues,
motocross teams are doing the same in the
amateur ranks. Scouting talent for the next
big thing can bring results, which in turn
brings big-money sponsors to the table.
This is not a one-sided deal. For an amateur rider, getting signed while still riding
the Grapefruit Circuit is like discovering a
gold mine. The riders get top-notch equipment, advice from men who know, financial
support, and the fast track to the big time.
Team Rock River Cycle Trader Yamaha has
made such an investment in Timmy Badour.
He is their future prospect to hit it big.
