The world’s obsession with motorcycle racing seems to have stared in the early 1860s. That’s when Pierre Michaux, an innovator from the UK, equipped a velocipede with the very first steam engine. ...
During the early 1900s, bikers enjoyed beating their own times around the track. Eventually, they began racing each other at the weekly “scrambles.”
By the 1920s, these motorcycle races had evolved into the competition known as “motocross.” This led to much needed technological changes, such as the invention of the 2-stroke engines, which emerged in the 1960s. By the 1970s, motocross competitions began taking place in stadiums.
Today, the sport of motocross is a billion dollar industry, popular all over the world. It now includes jam-packed arenas where spectators can witness cliffhanger jumps and amazing back flips. World-famous events such as the X Games, have helped to make motocross one of the fastest growing sports in the US.
