Motocross is a dangerous sport but you can minimize your risks by wearing the proper safety equipment including a real neck brace, not just a rubber donut. Also, you must be physically fit and in good practice before really competing in an organized event. I have raced since 1975 and have broken many bones and have herniated discs in my lower back. I have two areas of metal bracing in my body but I still compete as often as possible.
Most of my injuries came from not having enough impulse control and riding above my abilities or just dumb luck like having someone land on my back on the landing of a jump. I am glad my sons don't race as it would make me nervous to watch them but I dont worry about myself in that way.
For me the risks are worth what I get out of the competition, staying fit at 53 years old, keeping the mechanical aspect in control and enjoying the comraderie of the other old bucks chasing the dragon.
with free style motocross being more main stream, no one thinks MX is extreme anymore.
Skill, Strength, No Fear, be able to take risks and Endurance . (Sean does not have any of these!!!).
Motorcross is competed in, all around the world, at various motorcross tracks
The difference between the two is motorcross is spelled wrong! Not aware of of motorcross.
Well, you don't 'play' motorcross! You ride it, and you do this at any outdoor or indoor tracks.
Motorcross is popular EVERYWHERE but mostly i would say America and the UK
No way! Footballers are spoilt and motorcross riders are AWESOME!!!
In the 1800s
well it depends on who but football players at an average do make more $ than motorcross bikers.
out of boredom, something different to do.
falling down and death
No, but thanks for asking.
ride dirtbikes?! lmfaoo.

Very few. You have to be a top competitor. usually with multiple titles and a loretta lyyns victory
You do not have to 'get it' or 'sign up' for motorcross. This is something you do on your own, you just train on your own, and of course you have to have a bike and gear, but you just go to the race and register. That's about it. lol
Yes, there are plenty of ways to get started.
it can be hard when you start off but you will get used to it
