Ironman National part 4

I really enjoyed The Legends and Heroes Tour. It is a traveling motocross museum, and had some very neat bikes on display at Ironman.

Ironman National part 3

In a regular motocross race the basic idea is simple; get a good start and go fast. In a mud race it's a little different. A good start is even more important since passing is so difficult, and not as much roost from bikes in front of you to deal with. After that it's more a matter of survival and staying out of trouble, which isn't so easy. Get a decent start and just manage to stay moving, and you'll likely get a good result. So as a race a mudder isn't as good, but as a spectacle it can be a lot of fun to watch.
