The world of American motocross has reached a crossroads. With the increasing popularity of Supercross and resulting financial incentives for riders and teams, traditional motocross seems increasingly to be pushed to the backseat. The length of the back-to-back seasons is also placing stress on the riders and teams, and thus more focus is placed on the more lucrative Supercross season in the first half of the year. Meanwhile, in Europe, riders are weaned on motocross year-round and develop a skillset that American riders just can’t match, as evidenced by their lackluster results at Motocross des Nations. Can the American motocross industry reverse this trend? Top riders and teams weigh in.
