Motorcycle Motocross is a motor sport that was first recognized and organized by the French manufacturer Motoport OGC in Belgium in 1969. The name Motocross was derived from the word mot “motor” and crise “bike”. Grand Prix motorcycle race is the premier category of international motorcycle road race events held over road tracks officially sanctioned by the FÉdération Internationale de Motocrosse. This sport was made official in the United States in 1975 with the formation of the Transworld Touring Car Championship, now known simply as the TTC.
Throughout history, motocross has grown from a small-scale activity enjoyed by a handful of clubs to an international motorsport with millions of spectators and participating participants. At the current moment, there are numerous major races around the world in which the top bikes from various countries are put into a qualifying heat for the MOTOGP mountain bike championship. This season, Yamaha has won the championship twice, after racing in the past for three years. BMW is currently the second-placed team, following its victory last year. Honda and Suzuki are also making a strong effort, although many believe the Italians to have more chances of winning.
For those who love speed, the GZLC Motocross Team is your best bet. They boast two retro Suzuki machines – the RZR XP and the ZSPS ABS – as well as two factory BMW motorcycles. The team entered its first ever BMW motorbike race at the Epen Harelbeke this past April with the goal of building the fastest BMW motorcycle. And they succeeded, beating the Harley-Davidson-sponsored Bimmer team by almost fifty points. This marks the first time a non-fighter has won the championship since 2021.
One of the most interesting teams this season is the No-Vs team. It entered its first ever Motocross bike with a concept that combines sport with sports car look. These low-slung, low-powered machines rely on strong suspensions and low-powered engines to give them a real chance of winning at Motogp. The team’s star rider is Frenchman Paul Berton, who finished fourth in his debut race. Berton may be a great racer, but he doesn’t exactly have a reputation for having a good ride.
There’s another fascinating team racing this season, the ZSPS. They’re made up of ex-phalt motorbike racers and ex-racers, and they’re using the ZSPS-based ZS Precision Suspension kit to challenge Motogp for the fastest riders’ championship. The team finished third in its first season, despite missing out on the wild-card races. This has to be good because they’ve got some good talent behind them.
The wild card races are going to be interesting this year. First, there’s the defending champions Wood Brothers with Dave Houston and Jason Wright. Then there’s defending champion Protaras Christodoulou with Stephane Delbonno andieu. And then there’semarked champion Fabio Capello with Stephane Sarafo, and defending champion Loic Checq, with Vincent Suchegg, Mathieu Lamin, and Romain Guinard. So far, though, it looks like Nissan won’t be able to retain its three-year title.
