AN UNDERRATED SPORT.

Motocross is a form of motorcycle racing in which riders compete on a course marked out over open and often rough terrain. Courses vary widely but must be 1.5 to 5 km (1 to 3 miles) in length in international competition, with steep uphill and downhill grades, wet or muddy areas, and many left and right turns of varying difficulty. Motocross is probably the most physically demanding motorcycle sport. Riders must use the same motorcycle throughout a race, with repairs made between heats if necessary. A cotton jersey, nylon pants padded at the knee and thigh, padded boots and gloves, a helmet and goggles, a plastic chest protector, and a kidney belt for support constitute the usual outfit of the motocross cyclist.

Everybody, especially in Italy, grows up with football idols like Maradona, Pelé, and with a culture that is focused on this game. Few people know the history of motocross made by Italians, and few people know how difficult and amazing motocross is. So come on Italians, start getting into other sports and give importance to your internationals who are making history, like Antonio Cairoli, ‘the goat’.
