Have you ever though about how to help the sport of motocross grow at the grass roots level?
The MIC is paying a consulting group to do research in hopes of coming up with the answer to that question.
(The Motorcycle Industry Council announced at the beginning of 2019 that they would be spearheading a long-term initiative to attract new riders into powersports.
In July, the MIC hired consulting firm Centauric LLC to lead the first phase of the initiative regarding research and formulating a strategic plan.)
in a recent red bull 'MX NATION vide0 Davey Coombs says that where there is a problem is at the grassroots level, but says he doesn't have the answer and states that he thinks the kids are not wanting to do things outside these days, and makes a comparison with empty soccer fields
(The soccer fields here in Minnesota are busy actually) <--- pre corona anyway.
The decline of Motocross at the grassroots level is a complex problem in fact it's a lot of different problems combined and it can be looked at from a lot of angles and the problems can be different from one state than another which makes finding the solution complex as well.
However if you address the problems one by one and come up with solutions one by one finding solutions is possible, finding ways to grow the sport of motocross is something I have put a lot of thought into and I definetly believe that there are things we could do that aren't being done that would help the sport grow, It is something I want to talk to people in the Industry about.
So here is a question: Who would you to talk to if you had some solutions that would help the sport of Motocross grow, introduce thousands of new people to the sport and bring millions of dollars into the sport?
How would you go about getting some meetings set up?
If you have any ideas let me know thanks.
