Free motocross riding tips: Being a descent motocross rider and having fun with it maybe a lot easier and fun than you think. Becoming a successful pro is a lot harder than you think. But let’s face it, most riders want to do well and have fun at an amateur level. The 1% that end up making a living at it, well that’s a whole nother story. What level you end up at, only time will tell. In the mean time everyone has to start somewhere and make improvements one week at a time. And those improvements will come way faster when you know the facts about how to practice.
Here’s 10 minutes of Jordan Weber and I at my MX School track on July 2, 2013. We keep doing a lot of work to keep the track in good shape. This was the next day after some rain. The track was excellent.
The first lap is Mario Testa on the 250F Kaw shot with a camcorder. Hunter Minns was behind him on the Suzuki 450 until he got hit in the face with a rock. The 2nd lap is me (Gary Semics) shot with a ISaw Helmet Cam. We keep adding wood chip and top soil to the track in order to maintain great soil conditions for motos. The jumps are mostly clay.
Getting sideways off mx jumps when you don’t intend to is 9 times out of 10 because you’re hitting an uneven face upon take off. Think of a quad when it jumps off an uneven face; like where the two left wheels are higher than the two right wheels, your going to get sideways big time. It’s the same kind of an affect with a M/C. If there is a rut, a dished out area, a little rock or anything uneven about the place where the tires actually leave the ground it’s going to make you go sideways.
