I don't know if there is already a thread on the matter? Motocross appears to becoming an older mans sport; I see plenty of threads here about dodgy hearts & knees, makes me think that.

I started racing motocross here in Australia in 1975 as a 15 year-old, all my mates rode, we'd ride side-saddle to most tracks on our 125 mx bikes, the cops would just give us a warning, poor kids would get locked-up now (or maybe shot in the US ;-) )

I'm 56.

As a kid I was able to watch guys like Joel Robert, Decoster, Geboers, Weil etc race so you know I'm old.

No sh*t!! - Lots of us here are pushing 50. This sport is such a drug.. As long you stay healthy, minimize your risk, take responsibility for being in shape, it does keep you young. I have as much fun now as I did when I was in high school. I have several 'inspirational' friends who absolutely shred, and they're in their upper 50's. Age is just a number.. Until you wake up the next morning

27. I think you're right I noticed the same thing. People I meet at the track are mostly 40+ or 10-18. Not a lot of people in their twenties-thirties.

I think it's because the 10-18y/o group is riding on their parents expense, and 40+ is situated well enough, that they can afford to ride.

43 for another month. Shit, wait, I think I'm 44. That was my honest thought process before doing the math. Man, these years seriously fly bye bye.

49 here. Started riding on the farm at 10 in'77, then began racing in '82. Sort of gave up racing and riding around '95 when I got married and got busier with work. Just started riding again a few years ago, and I really have the itch to race again but I'm a bit out of shape and I get massive arm pump and numb hands after two hard laps.

20, didn't own a bike till I was 14 started racing at 15 (2011)

None of my bikes have seen the inside of a shop. Between that and money I at least have an excuse as to why I'm slow laughing
