Racing Dirt Bikes

So you want to start racing dirt bikes?
Who can blame you; dirt bike racing is an increasingly popular choice for many thrill seekers. Itís true that in the wrong hands racing dirt bikes can be incredibly dangerous but with a little care and attention and some experience there is no reason why you canít have the adrenalin fuelled excitement while considerably minimising the risks many people associate with the sport.
Racing dirt bikes is a popular pastime with people of all age, many grandfathers and grandchildren take part in regular races and the younger you start the better you will be. Many professional bike racers started with dirt bike racing and they usually started at the age of 4 or 5. While you may consider this to be far too young, there is no reason you canít get your children into practise when they hit their teenage years and are a good age to be trying out a mini dirt bike.
Things to consider if you want to try racing dirt bikes.
The first thing you need to consider is your safety. When buying your bike and equipment make sure that you make safety of the most paramount importance. If you donít ride safe you wonít ride long. Even second hand bikes can be purchased in a

ready to ride condition and you should make sure that all parts are in very good working order before you start racing. If you have no or little knowledge of racing dirt bikes then you should get a professional to look at your bike for you and make the necessary repairs or replacements.
Now, watch others when they are racing dirt bikes so you get a feel for how itís done. If youíve never ridden before this will give you a very good idea of whether you really want to give it a go and whether it is something you think you will be good at.
Will I be getting big air when I start racing dirt bikes.
When you start racing dirt bikes it is highly unlikely you will get more than a foot or two off the ground when you hit a jump, and this is a good thing. Experience is crucial before you even consider escalating 10 feet into the air. If you donít know what you are doing and you donít have the experience of this then you will probably land it badly and get yourself hurt. Start small and build big.
