9 Countries You’d Never Guess Would Have a Great Motocross Scene

Turns out dirt bikes aren’t just for SoCal bros and mullet-sporting Belgians

Motocross is the working man’s motorsport, the affordable way for the average Joe to get their speed fix.

What’s affordable for the average Joe in India is not a six grand Japanese techno-wonder however, but knackered old road bikes tarted-up for a bit of off-road action with some re-tread knobblies, and hand-cut number plates.

“They’re knackered old road bikes tarted-up for a bit of off-road action.”

So that’s what the vast majority of Indian motocross race, in both motocross and supercross – yes India has an SX series!

So whilst the lucky few with a pucka MX bike line-up in the imaginatively titled ‘Foreign’ class, the core of Indian motocross are giving it large on bikes that look better suited for the scrap-heap than a race track. And it’s awesome.

There’s no worrying about having the latest bling bike parts or latest energy gunk branding, just racing hard accompanied by awesome old-school 50s BBC style commentating – the true spirit of motocross.
