Itís been said that there are only two types of racer; those that have been down and those that are going to go down. It really is inevitable, so make sure youíre as protected as you can be when it happens. Many professional riders can list numerous broken bones and some nasty dirt rash as part of their credentials but they keep getting back on bike for more. They truly are adrenalin junkies.
Dirt bike crashes can happen at any speed and at any time, whether you are just setting off and hardly moving, in full flight and getting air or at full throttle down straight. You could hit a bump, clip tyres with another rider or simply lose control. Dirt isnít even and even with specialist tyres you arenít always guaranteed a safe ride.
Enjoy dirt bike racing and be prepared for fact that if you havenít already then you will experience a dirt bike crash before your time is up. Be prepared and be protected, as this will mean difference between cuts and bruises and serious injury.
