Brief History of Motocross

Introduction to an Adventure Sport called Motocross

As we have mentioned above the sport of Motocross has been evolved from the United Kingdom’s motorcycle trials competition in the early 1900s. Such competitions were Auto Cycle Club’s trials and the Scottish Six Days Trials. In these trials, the competitors had to balance delicately through out the race on rough and uneven surface. Sometimes this was also called as ‘scrambles racing’ as well in the UK. Slowly it grow popularity and even the French got attracted to it and had their own, ‘motocyclette’ soon. By 1930s, its popularity zoomed in Britain and many more competitions were organized. After the second World War the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme or FIM which is the international governing body for the motorcycling started an individual European Championship in the year 1952 in which only 500 cc engine bikes were allowed to participate. During this part the Swedish and Belgium riders started to dominate the sport. By this time the Motocross had already spread its wings to the United States as well.

Not only the players from the different countries started to participate, but the auto companies from outside Europe too started to manufacture the bikes for the sport and the huge competition erupt between the European and the Japanese auto company by the 1970s.
