Many people talk about it but very few people actually lived to tell the tale of how exhilarating and adrenaline-filled a motocross can be. But what is motocross really about?
By definition, a motocross, not motorcross as what most people think, is a type of race using a motorcycle that is typically done on an enclosed off-road circuit track. It traces its roots back to the motorcycle trials competition held in UK during the early part of the 1900′s. In the past, motocross has been referred to a scramble due to resulting “melee” after the riders try to outdo each other on the track. The first scramble race took place in Surrey in 1924. Today, as in the past, a motocross competition typically takes place regardless of the kind of weather. Because of its physical demands, it is said to be one of those sports that is not for the faint of heart.
A number of motorcycle sports have been derived from the traditional motocross. One of these is the Supercross. A Supercross is named as such because of the specialized type of high performance off-road motorcycles used. Typically, supercross competitions make use of artificial dirt tracks that feature steel jumps and obstacles. Compared to traditional motocross competitions, supercross ones are done in exclusive venues and have tighter turns as well as more technical aspects due to the limited space. Because it can be done in indoor venues, supercross competitions go well during winter and spring. One of the most popular supercross competition is the Monster Energy Motocross.
The Monster Energy Motocross is an FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme)
World Championship sponsored by the popular energy drink, Monster Energy. Although FIM World Championships are typically done in Europe, there are some instances when it is help within North America.
