What is motocross? Motocross is a type of Extreme Sport that involves motorcycle racing in challenging terrains. The Sport is said to have originated in the United Kingdom back in 1909 when motorcycle competitions were first held.

Motocross is an extremely demanding sport that requires skill and strategy of the rider. Its name is derived from the French word moto which means motorcycle, and combined with the term “cross country”.

By the 1930s, motocross has become a popular sport in Britain. Several teams became reputed from motorcycle off-road events like Norton, Rudge, Matchless, and the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA).

In 1952, the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme organized the European Championship racing using 500 cc engine motorcycles.   The 250 cc motorcycle championships did not happen until a decade later (1962).

The 60s introduced the evolution from two-stroke motorcycles to the four-stroke engine technology. In 1966, a motocross exhibition was held at the Corriganville Movie Ranch in Simi Valley, California – with Swedish rider Torsten Hallman emerging as the winner.

There are several prestigious Motocross competitions held in different parts of the world. Four of the most acclaimed are the FIM Grand Prix Motocross World Championship which is primarily held in Europe, the AMA Motocross Championship, the Motocross des Nations which is an international competition, and the Maxxis British Motocross Championship in the UK.

There are also variations of the motocross sport. Events are categorized according to the styles or exhibitions involved such as the Freestyle Motocross where the rider performs acrobatic stunts while jumping motocross bikes, the Supermoto where riders race in both road and dirt tracks, the Quad Motocross where riders must run through obstacles off-road, and the Supercross which makes use of high performance off-road bikes on man-made dirt tracks.
