Motocross keeps you really fit
As a sport, motocross requires great physical strength and endurance. Most professional riders spend as much time in the gym as they do on the track. A versatile training regime allows racers to prepare and try to avoid injuries and damage on the bike. They also keep a healthy diet and stay away from drinking and smoking to allow their bodies to recover better after a racing or training session. As the racing season runs over the warm months, keeping hydrated is also crucial for good performance and better body functionality.
You learn how to manage your money
Motocross is an expensive lifestyle - the bikes, the gear, protection and apparel, then think of the workshop tools and servicing charges and then add to that the healthy lifestyle, traveling and insurance costs. It all adds up to a small fortune, but if are keen to save some money you learn how to be a savvy shopper and how to do some of the work yourself. Those of you who have been in the in the industry for some time know that parts come cheaper on Ebay and sometimes you can get away with a cheeky discount if you know where to shop.
Motocross teaches you not only how to ride
Being motocross rider requires a great amount of skills on the track to become a good racer. But being a motocross rider is not just practicing and hours in the gym, it's much more. You will need to learn how to promote and sell yourself in order to get sponsors and fans raving for you. You will need to be a great manager when it comes to organizing trips and participation in tournaments. You will need great research skills to find parts and accessories that will be available to you at convenient for you times. Last but not least you will learn how to organize your time and priorities, as you have much more time out of the track rather than on it.
