Motocross racers? - January 29, 2014, 12:13 PM

Are there any motocross racers among us besides myself? I race the MAMA/District 7 series.

I get outside my comfort zone and do a few Hare Scrambles here and there, are there any of you Hare Scramble guys with interest in MX?

That's pretty cool. I was going to do that but decided to watch the pro's instead. I didn't wanna deal with the parking situation and hauling all my crap from the parking garage to the arena and hauling it all back on foot.

I want to get more comfortable jumping stuff, but most of us generally ride enuro/hare scramble type trails/tracks. I personally want to master enduroX, but it looks like I basically need to build my own track for that.

Yeah unfortunately enduroX isn't big on the east coast. In the past I desperately wanted to try my hand at Supermoto. That too isn't a big thing on the east coast so the logistics get in the way.

Well I have a SXV 550 for supermoto. VIR and NJMP as well as others host it. VIR has a dirt section. I like to goto PIR and use their kart track. SM is out there you just gotta find it.

I'd love to get better at basic jumping. Not 120 foot triples mind you. But simple doubles would be nice.

With how expensive track days and CCS racing is, I want to get more into motocross this year, the past years I've most just did trail riding at taskers gap with my dirt bike.

My plan is to keep heading out to wicomico to get comfortable with jumps, any other suggestions?

I went to Easton MX a little over a year ago but it seems like that place has closed down now

Tomahawk MX in Hedgesville, WV is my favorite and has very forgiving jumps. My understanding is Easton is going to be reopening soon but until then there's also Blue Diamond, Seaford and Budd's Creek in the relative area.

I think it's a matter of not knowing what to do. Plus the ability to learn relatively safely. In other words, going from a 3 foot table top jump to a 30 foot double is pretty intimidating. Especially when I look just like my avatar. Can you imagine the earthquake?

I'll second Tomahawk, great place, has good MX track, a "super cross" style track, and even a decent loop trail. They limit the MX track to a certain number of riders which is cool and sucks at the same time, but deffinitely nice knowing you aren't riding elbow to elbow the whole time scared to be run over.

If you go to Tomahawk when it ~15dF out you can ride as much as you want. I would like to get out some more at MX tracks as the whole going fast thing is a real weak spot for me.
