Motocross racing is one of the most exciting sports to watch. Riders seem to perform death-defying turns and leaps. The effort used to control the bike is visible and the rider can be seen shifting his weight about to turn and maneuver the bike for maximum speed. The wheels often spin and spray up mud when a rider tries to control the traction of the bike.

We will meet at 9 AM Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 13th and 14th near the tables at the western end of the track.
WW Ranch MX doesn't mind anyone coming out and taking photos but you must stay on the outside of the fence.
From Gordon "Rick and I went out to scout WW this morning (12/19). It is a first class operation and we should get some great pictures.
The track is very large. There is spectator area all around it, so that we drove wherever we wanted, and took pictures right at the fence. If the weather is nice, it should be a lot of fun."

MotoCross or MX
Motocross is widely considered to be the world’s most popular form of motorcycle racing. Motocross is derived from a French term combining motorcycling and cross-country. Motocross tracks are usually made up of hills, dirt roads, and muddy tracks and turns. The size of the courses allows up to 40 riders to compete at the same time. In motocross, professional races are measured by time.
Motocross racers must be extremely fit. The sport is very demanding on the arms, legs, shoulders, and glutes. The rider has to be able to keep control of his machine on a course that most people would have difficulty walking across. High-speed landings from a height of around twenty feet can slam the motorcycle and its rider. G-forces produced by these can test a rider’s endurance and strength to the limit.
