There are several things that you can do in order to acquire mad motocross skills. The first thing is to in order to improve your racing skills is to walk the track that you plan on racing. When you walk the track it will help you be more observant. Make sure to take note the different lines that you can run, the “wetness” of the track, as well as any other parts of the course that could cause problems in the race if you aren’t too careful. If you aren’t sure what to look for, see if a more advanced racer will walk the track with you and help show you what to look for.
As important as it is to check the racing track before a race, make sure that you also are checking the parts of your motor bike. Any advanced rider will tell you how important it is. No rider likes to be winning a race and end up stalling or crashing their bike because of a malfunction.
The next important step is to practice riding the track as much as possible. From all the practice you can figure out the different “lines” of the track. One you have practice racing, you need to come up with a racing plan. If you are in great shape, a race plan might just be riding as hard as you can, however, if you can’t do that, you need to decide where and when to push yourself.
The last step you need to take is practice your starts. Make sure to pick a place that you can ride that will maximize your chances of getting in front of the “heat,” while minimizing your chances of getting caught in traffic.
