Yes you need to be fit to ride dirt bikes. Toughest sport ever? I'll argue that. I can not ride a month and race a moto. Can't do the same with a 50 mile Cat 3 critirium.
Check Dilla in 1977
The racers had to ride the banners to miss bumps.
10 inches of bad travel and drum brakes. I can't remember the last time I saw a modern Pro track that rough.



I think they dumbed mx down to keep the pack closer together. Good guys would be further off the front on a tougher track. Doesn't matter anyway. There are less fans at Saturday races and TV can be altered to make up the 3 minute lead

So you're saying the tracks at the US Nationals are too smooth and not challenging enough?

You're saying you could do two 30 + 2 Moto's at 100%, or that you could hop on a bike and ride around for a couple laps?
