Who am I to think this big? That is exactly how I feel when I think about what I am trying to do! Which is to create a Social Enterprise type of business that puts an organized focus on growing the sport of motocross.
I believe that by creating a way to unite the industry to get everyone on the same page to work on growing through a combination of Marketing, live events, and creating publicity and introducing new strategies that we can help the sport grow.
I have a plan that will also help create new natural terrain tracks, and new riding areas while also creating new options for racing using cheaper easy to ride dirt bikes that currently exist but aren't being focused on, this also addresses safety at the same time the new options for bikes I am referring to are not only cheaper but they are also slower and slower is safer, at the speeds we are going these days people are getting injured more severely than ever before. Most people that race motocross are just doing it for fun, and when doing a sport where we know we are going to crash and it's not if its when why would we want high speed? It's not fun to break bones, new options are needed.
You don't often hear people say I wish there were some optional slower bike classes because they would probably made fun of if they did but that doesn't mean they aren't thinking it.
I've heard quite a few ex pro riders say they think 450's are too fast.
people do want more options and they are speaking with their wallets and switching to other types of riding like Off road. Hare Scrambles are up in participation, So is Pit bike racing,
Some are just Staying home all together and quit the sport.
As far as the who am I to think this big part, I do think that daily then I think what if a ex pro rider had the exact same ideas that I have?
Could it be done?
And I believe the answer is yes.
I hear pro riders all the time say in interviews that they want to help the sport grow. Please reach out to me and I will prove that together we can make a difference.
I believe if any one of them or all of them were working together trying to do what I am trying to do I truly believe they could.
(Can anyone get me a 30 minute conversation with one of them?)
