Default Lets Have an Age Check

     

You know, when I returned to riding motocross after a 13 year hiatus, I felt I would be overwhelmed with younger guys and children and I would be the “lone wolf”, so to speak, at the track or on the trails. But I have been pleasantly surprised at the number of racers in the 35+ class this past year!! And then today, we had a work/ride day at one of our ORV Trails, and I was amazed at the men and “women” over 50. One of my new friends I made today from Atlanta was 55 and races 4-5 times a year in the GNCC events. We also had a husband and wife down from PA that was 68 years old!! He was on a 520 KTM and she was riding a 250 Gas Gas. So, maybe if I can stay healthy, I may have many more years left to enjoy this sport I hold to my heart with so much passion.

brcrk....
If you lived in SoCal, the age thing would be way amplified.
There are a lot of old racers and even more riders here than one could believe.
I'm 68 and in my group.....I'm not the oldest.
We ride a lot but gave up the racing (desert), mostly because of desire.

The beauty of dirt bikes is when you put on your helmet, we are all even, well until those durn kids hit the first corner.

29 here. I am just getting started too so everybody still passes me. The best part is just the thrill of being on the bike. Only problem with being an older rider would be that the aches are a little more amplified the next day.

I'm 23 but I still wouldn't race my dad on some of the trails he's been riding for over 50 yrs. He'd kill me.
