Motocross is a cross-country motorcycle race over a closed course of natural and simulated rough terrain with varying amounts of natural and man made jumps, steep hills and sharp curves. There doubles and tabletops, a rhythm section, and a few single jumps, along with lots of turns and twists.
The race begins with a mass start where all the riders line up alongside each other, starting simultaneously, and racing the race distance. The first rider across the finish line is declared the winner.
Motocross is a very physical demanding sport and riders spend much of their time standing to absorb shock with their knees. The seat is designed to allow riders to shift their weight quickly to provide more traction in corners, rather than for comfort.
Motocross is a visually appealing form of motorsports with death-defying leaps, sliding, spinning tires, and dirt flying everywhere. It can be a constant adrenaline rush watching the racers cover the courses.
Supercross is an entirely man made track, comprising almost exclusively of a wide array of jumps and typically held in an indoor stadium.
Freestyle motocross is a relatively new sport, which is not racing and instead concentrates on performing acrobatic stunts while jumping motocross bikes.
