For many of us, taking a Motocross test can be a daunting task. It doesn’t matter if you are brand new to the world of Motocross or if you have been riding for years. Regardless of our past experience with the sport, taking MOTOCRUISMS can prove to be extremely beneficial and quite a challenge. Motocross test days present a new set of challenges that are unique to this particular sport.
There are two different categories of motocross that the sport encompasses: the category of sprints and the category of championships. The two types of motocross that are most common include the traditional road motocross, also known as the moto2 class and the moto3 category. During the Motocross season, teams place bikes into the sprints, where they attempt to complete a specific number of laps within a specified time. If a team finishes in first place or in the second place, they receive a grand Prix title, which is why there is much emphasis placed on winning races.
The other division of this sport is the supercross category. Supercross is an entirely different event than the standard sprinting sessions you would find in a motocross race. Supercross bikes are classified as four-stroke motorcycles, which means that they are much faster and heavier. A rider will need to be in good shape to compete in the supercross championship, which explains the significant weight difference between this division and the rest of the motocross classes.
When a rider tries to qualify for the MOTOGP championship, there are several criteria that they must meet. They must have already won a stage of this international tournament or a national stage, and they must also score more points than the nearest competitor. Points are based off of the highest score that can be achieved by any single rider, not just those riding in a four-stroke category. In addition to scoring points, riders also receive bonus points if they successfully complete a test, or a trail ride. Bonus points can sometimes be combined with regular points in order to earn a higher finish. There are also bonus sections in some of the international tours, which means riders may get extra incentive to try and win a particular race while riding a motorcycle belonging to a certain team.
One of the main differences between the two divisions is the type of competition that is used. There are two classes for this season’s MOTOGP championship, and each class features a different type of course. The sprint is open class, meaning that riders will compete against others from their country that have also qualified through a rigorous process that the company uses. The other category is the elimination race, and here riders try to eliminate all other riders in the race. The winner of the championship receives a title, and the other racers in the same class are ranked based on their times.
Each race includes a short distance, usually no more than fifteen miles, as well as a series of categories, including touring bikes and factory supported bikes. These bikes include a wide range of makes and models, including four-stroke, five-stroke, six-stroke and seven-stroke petrol motors. Both versions of the four-stroke category are eligible for the MOTOGP class, but only the four-stroke engine is allowed to participate in the championship races. The entire process takes about a month to complete, and all of the required technical data is supplied to the teams and drivers before the event starts.
