DO YOU HAVE A NEED FOR SPEED?
Motocross races are held on an enclosed, marked and fenced circuit that combines the terrain's natural features such as hills and cambers with man-made jumps to create spectacular and physically challenging circuits. On a typical MX track you'll find all manner of elements including fast straights, sharp climbs and drops, big jumps, technical corner sections and rough n' bumpy bits. Motocross is a physically demanding sport held in all-weather conditions.
The tyres have an aggressive 'knobbly' profile to get traction on the terrain, which can range from deep sand through to almost concrete-hard clay. There is also long travel, heavy-duty suspension to deal with the big jumps.
