Motocross developed initially in early 1900’s. By 1930, it had become extremely popular in Britain, where professional teams were formed, which often competed against each other. In those days the motorcycles on the street were also used during the competitions. However, as the off-road tracks became more complex, variation in motorcycles started to take place. Motocross in the United States was introduced by a Swedish biker, Torsten Hallman in 1966. The early American bikers were Dave Bickers, Joel Robert and Roger DeCoster.
Today’s Motocross in America however has come a long way since 1966. Gone are the days when European manufacturers dominated this sport. Most sought after motorcycles now are Japan made. Twin-shock rear suspension has been replaced with single-shock absorber. Similarly, two-stroke air-cooled motorcycles have been replaced with water cooled motorcycles.
At present, the ‘gods’ of Motocross are Josh Hansen, Jeremy McGrath, Gautier Paulin, Christophe Pourcel, Tyla Rattray, Dean Wilson, Ryan Villopoto and Ricky Carmichael.
