And the athletes and fans was declared so much that it was decided to divide the class into 2 classes free of cubic engine, which is very encouraging, as the athletes an additional opportunity to win such a tempting prize. Besides the prizes, the statement in the prize pool, impressive. The five classes of first-place winners got a scooter.
Traditionally, asked the heat on their 50-vat motorcycles most young athletes, the youngest participants in this class of motorcycle 5 years. Despite his age, these young men feel confident in the saddle horses and iron are discharged pirouettes, which inadvertently can not look away from the action represented. Confident Sergei Makarov won, a graduate of the team Forsage Izhevsk. I'll note that Sergei motoshkolu came in recently, but already successfully recaptures the first place to the delight of parents and svom coach.

The idea srednekubaturnyh motocross bikes, embodied in the life of ITC "IL-Moto", allows you to refill your motoshkolam motorcycle park and provides an opportunity for many children to take the first steps in motocross. A distinctive feature of these races is that guys are competing on the same motorcycle. Does the athlete comes first - it depends only on its persistence and degree of training.

Continued competitive "fly" the participants in the class of "free": another spectacular flight of hurdles Cross road motorcycles and can not be called. All the spectators, who occupied vantage points throughout the route (length 1500 m), it was not a "tear." All thoughts and eyes were on the motorcycle, hovering over every slope and lifting clouds of dust on the track dried. Motocross - the spectacle, excitement, a sense of competition and the joy of victory - that's what moves the current and future athletes, prompting to do this is really difficult sport.
The ups and downs, the bitterness of disappointment and joy of the championship - and it is always for life.

Spring Motocross!

Spring Motocross!

The streets and roads of our country, with the onset of heat, there are many motorcycles. Zelenogorsk was no exception. Teens under 16 years old to ride mopeds and mokikov not having the right to do what is written in chapter 24 of the SDA. Leaving the roadway, the young riders move to the gross violations of traffic rules, creating a dangerous situation.

In order to instil law-abiding and safe behavior among teenagers in OGIBDD, Center for "The Knight" and the bike club «BARHEST MC» held a joint event. Kids parties have passed a serious test of knowledge of traffic rules, and then gathered at the city kartodroma for the practical part of the competition.

The competitions were held in two age groups in two directions: figure and high-speed driving karts and figure driving a motorcycle. The struggle was not for children, as the requirements for the participants were quite high. Along with the boys and girls competed, I must say in some aspects superior to them.

Won by the best. They are: Appanas Eugene, Medyuk Andrew Ulvert Ivan - in the older group and Modorov Paul, Dmitry Sinitsyn, Buyanov Denis - in the younger group. Each received a well-deserved awards, won first place prize from the bikers - helmet, which the children gave the chief OGIBDD EG Malyshev.

At the end of the competition among teenagers had the opportunity to communicate with the bikers. They looked with great interest to the modern and captivating brilliance of his motorcycles and asking questions that they were interested. Bikers just chased another good purpose - to convey to children the need to respect the law of roads, and showed them the means of protection and of course the strength and power of his technique.

winter Motocross

That's the promised article about winter motorcycle operation. Clarify: this is not just a theory but a summary of my daily practice.Once again, I declare: Riding a motorcycle in the winter - is quite normal, no not the "extreme" (can not stand this stupid word!). I will say more than that, we have some owners of motorcycles riding on them only in the winter! This, of course, fishermen - in the summer the river can be reached by car, but push it through the snow - not such a pleasure. To be fair to add that they all ride motorcycles with sidecars - need somewhere to put the same device for catching fish, vodka and more. I myself just go to work on the bike all year round. Do not think that the chill has brains and now you can expect from me the most. If you are near the entrance of the plant are usually two or three motorcycles, it used to be much larger. Just become more cars. But I can not too early to understand how you can have fun sitting in a tin box on wheels. And on two wheels get the full enjoyment of the program!I begin with materiel. If the summer is fashionable to afford to ride a bike is not working perfectly, then in the winter - no. The engine should wind up in any weather. The battery can nedozaryazhatsya due to low temperatures, so that once a week it has to be recharged. The oil in the crankcase is better to take thinner, or just a little bit of kerosene linut there, and the spring flood is normal. Ropes must lubricate the best silicone (silicone) grease - in the cold, they can freeze or become a "rubber". If you have a carburetor housings, make sure you put them - while parked on the street the snow gets into the carburetor, then melts and remains in the float chamber. Regularly pulled out pieces of ice ...Starting the bike. As shown, up to -15 degrees mototechnics any start up smoothly. Next - is worse. I do not recommend warming the crankcase, the engine has nothing on this train. Better warm up the candle. As a rule, the adjusted engine that's enough. By the way, about the adjustment. Few enrich the carburetor mixture needles show a lot - screw quality. Carburetor will be rich, but better start. Add idle - the engine should not stall ever. Otherwise - locking rear wheels and drop the bike. I'll be back to the candle. I have a simple but effective method: I always carry a spare in the pocket of a candle. And a couple of pieces in the glove compartment. But is that in your pocket - warm!You make the bike carefully. First, a few times the engine bleed Kick. Then open benzokranik, gasoline pump up drowning float. The corrector has not yet touch. Start and run engine at idle, no more than one quarter. When it starts up (and it starts up), then you can add the gas and play a little dresser. A little - because you, and so enriched mixture by adjusting the carburetor. If the engine has persisted in its unwillingness to wind up, then you can still try to enrich the fuel mixture as a proofreader. But be careful - the cold candle is often flooded with gasoline. So, if the engine will not start, better crank and watch the candle. If it is dry - to open the gas pump through the engine and then fill in a few (depending on engine size) cubes of gasoline. After that, the engine can not start. If the candle raw - change it to spare. Sometimes, in the bitter cold to start the engine in the dark night, we have to try three candles - more with it not I drive. In the morning easier - saving hot candle ever! Especially if you make the engine about 15 minutes before departure, and warm it. Incidentally, I am now going to do. Today, under -30, wound up with difficulty.Now, about what to ride. I went in the winter opposites (M67-36), "Planet" and "Minsk". But the best was a moped "Karpaty". The fact that winter does not need more power and lighter equipment, the easier it is to manage it. Moreover, the fall - there is a difference, too. Or lie pinned a heavy motorcycle, or light. Of course, the moped is not so pathetic, as opposites, but it is easier to ride. But: start opposites and "Planet" is much easier. Thickened oil in the crankcase is not so easy to crank weak "half a ruble," and even on loose snow, he is heading is not so hot as. The worst is a choice - a scooter. His "taburetochnaya" landing and small wheels negate the protection of the knees from the cold wind.To learn how to spike wheels and a chain to wear, I've written (see "To slide"), and therefore dwell on this issue will not go, and immediately move on to the technique of driving. The basic rule here - to do everything carefully, precisely and accurately. Ice and snow do not forgive mistakes. Although the decline is not as painful as the asphalt, but is able to brake on a slippery road walking track "KamAZ" - is another question. More precisely, not even a question. Therefore, the number one commandment - not impudent, give way to anyone who could. I understand that many people it will be hard, and what to do?Patient question - drive off. My way is: gazanut sharply in neutral, turn on the transmission (because of the thick oil the bike a little jerks, even heavy opposites), and then slowly release the clutch on a fairly large gas. Once the bike ride starts, release the clutch and throttle at the same time. Normally the engine should be adjusted to pull at idle. And then quietly dispersed. Be careful at high engine speeds - even weak "fifty dollars" they can break the rear wheel to slip! So as much as possible to drive small and medium engine speeds. It is clear that the "Jupiter" is pretty hard, but because he was away for the winter is far from ideal.Need to turn the wheel very carefully, and most importantly - accurately. They can not wag not in any way. If you feel that you can not control a motorcycle (and this often happens on a slippery uneven road) - relax your hands and relieve gas. The motorcycle will probably fall on its side - hold his feet. Or at least do stay on their feet. In general, the fall in the winter - is the norm. Personally, I fall over the winter a dozen times. But all of them - with no consequences, except that the setting is get off the mirror. Yes, in any case not turning his head, looking out from behind the machine! better to hang a mirror under the extra wheel, so as not to obscure the elbow. When I realized that when you turn the head back, I'm losing trajectory, began to think, why so? It turned out that because of the clothes not only turns his head, and shoulders, too. What it is - is clear.Forget about the sudden acceleration or stops. Remember that there is no front brake. I mean - do not. Can it even detach completely - will not be worse, only better. But that does not mean that we should slow down the rear brake. He, too, is valid only in small doses. Brake motor. And since they do not slow down quickly - especially not overclocked. Maximum speed in the winter can be considered as 60 km / h Anything above - not extreme, and debilizm. But the rear brakes have brake properly - not to pressure him with all the dope, but first a few times a little push on the pedal (as in trucks with pneumatic brakes), and only then gradually slow down, preventing wheel lock.Now, about the obstacles. The worst thing - icy track and tram lines. Try not to stop off at the track - or leave them difficult or impossible! But if you feel that you are still pulling in a rut - sharply (and accurately!) To move out and move it right on the edge. Here is where you need precise control of the wheel jewelry! If possible, get out, hit a little one edge of the track, and then abruptly exit at the other side. Look behind the rear wheel, if it can not easily get out of the rut, once again, move down to it, otherwise the bike will deploy, and it falls under the car going after. It does not matter that they were going after and honking - it does not concern you. It will be necessary - will tour you take your summer.Tram tracks move into first gear, putting his feet - how will the cold tires on the slippery iron - no one knows, even herself. It is better to go around them with the edge of the snow, not ice. Snow drifts on the contrary, force it to disperse, throwing gas at least to overcome them. It is insidious remnants of snow after the snow thrower: among the fresh snow can hide blocks of ice and hard snow. Personally, I fear them most.After reading all this, one might think that winter riding - the horror and the nightmare. This is not the case, the worst thing happens in the summer when you believe in good adhesion of rubber to asphalt. The most important thing in the winter - do not think, ride a couple of days, you become a professional. Basic skills are coming in a month - another daily drive, and the total confidence - at least two years. And the "greatest of the great" - never to drive a motorcycle in the winter in a state of intoxication! Dig a grave in the frozen ground is not so easy ...P.S. This article I wrote two in the morning before work. Yesterday it was at -30, with the launch of the engine had to be tricky. Today is -12 degrees, the engine fails to start on the third kick. And what you want. "

Motocross (sometimes abbreviated as MX or MotoX)

Motocross (sometimes abbreviated as MX or MotoX) - style of riding a motorcycle or ATV off-road trails or special circularity. Motocross is the most popular motorcycle sport in the world. Motocross started to gain popularity in France, where he used to be called Skrembling, but was invented in the UK. The world's first motocross race took place in Camberley in 1924 The name "motocross" formed from the words "Motorcycle" (English "bike") and "Cross Country" (English "suppression area"). Gradually the name became abbreviated to MX.

Motocross tracks are usually quite long (1.5-3 km) and include natural obstacles with different variations of specially designed ramps and other handmade items. There has not met the road, which would consist of hills and turns, without a single jump.

Extreme Sports. motocross

It is human nature to forget the old and familiar in favor of something new and unusual fashion. However, as the long-standing practice, everything in this world is cyclical, really good must come back again, and secondary, "pupsovoe" would stand aside. I want to believe that he, although a small rise, which is observed in motor sports today, will grow into the present, the rapid development.
After all, motocross is really primarily a sport, not a show for the feverish public ...

Do you remember how it all began ...
The history of motocross is so closely associated with other types of motorsport, the first stage to separate them completely pointless. For readers probably will not be news that the first motorcycle was built in Germany in 1885, Gottlieb Daimler. He invented a machine for riding, which is a bicycle with wooden frame and belt drive weighing 50 pounds, with a 1-cylinder gasoline engine working volume of 264 cubic centimeters, which allowed to reach speeds of 12 kilometers per hour. Over the next eight years, motorcycles have appeared in almost all European countries.

The passion of man to compete immediately manifested itself. In 1894 at the initiative of the magazine "Le Petit Journal" held its first race "mechanical crews." There was no division between road and motosorevnovaniya, so the race took part in a four-wheel "race cars", and tricycles, motorcycles - only the wheels were turning the motor. These events marked the beginning of the modern cars and motorsports.
The development of motor sport, or rather its distribution, was directly related to the production of motor vehicles, and it just was not. But the bike nothing could stop them. By the early 20th century it became an independent means of transport: a division between the two-track vehicle and motorcycle single track (in the case of two-track accession strollers). In 1899 in Vienna, the first official race motorcycles.
These events also served as an impetus to the establishment of an international federation of motorcycle clubs, founded July 8, 1904 in the Czech city of motorsports enthusiasts Pakov from several countries. This organization, later renamed the International Federation of Motorcycle sport, began to conduct regular international competition.
It is believed that the first competition in motocross races were between the 13th motorcyclists and 16 riders, which took place at a military training ground near London in 1908. The purpose of motorcyclists had to prove that the new technique can be moved on the road is no worse and sometimes better than horses. In the race won a landslide victory ungulates "vehicle", finishing almost at full strength. Of the riders got only two. However, it is no longer able to become a barrier to the development of motor sport.
The most significant event, which began to carry out even before the World Cup - was the "Cross of Nations" was first performed in 1947. Then the team won the UK. These competitions are held to this day.
In 1955 at the initiative of FIM (International Motorcycle Federation), the first European Championships, and in 1957 hosted the first World Championships, which consisted of the stages that took place in nine European countries. At each stage, the winner of the Grand Prix was handed the host country.
Happy Birthday Russian motorsport is considered to be October 11, 1898, when the first "race engines", which was held at a distance of 39 miles from the station near St. Petersburg to the Alexander Strelna Warsaw railway and back. The initiators of this race were the first in Russia with support from motorists' cycling community. " Subsequently, competition cars and motorcycles have become regular.

Modern Motocross
Motocross is the most popular motorcycle sport in the world. The world's first motocross race took place in Camberley in 1924. The name "motocross" formed from the words "Motorcycle" (English "bike") and "Cross Country" (English "suppression area"). Gradually the name became abbreviated to MX.
Motocross tracks are usually quite long (1.5-3 kilometers) and include natural obstacles with different variations of specially designed ramps and other handmade items. There has not met the road, which would consist of hills and turns without a springboard. Supercross, motocross as a kind of - it is entirely man-made trail, usually a short length with many jumps and turns, built on the stadium (and sometimes indoor).
Due to the size of the tracks are usually involved in motocross racers 40 and in Supercross - about 25.
Races are different in length, usually measured in time plus 1-2 range. Grand Prix (GP) or the American League (Pro AMA) are usually within 30 minutes + 2 laps. Amateur racing is usually occupied by much smaller, about 10 minutes.
Motocross Championships
The purpose of the race - to pass a certain number of laps (from 3 to 7 for the fans, more for professionals) or a fixed amount of time (up to 40 minutes) first. Races are usually held in two phases, which resulted in the total score is obtained and the final result. On your marks out a few riders.
Motocross is one of the most spectacular sports, where the raiders do big jumps, go through the turns, while the balance from the fall ...
Recently appeared in motorsport subspecies, such as Supercross, or Arenakross (both - indoor motocross), Freestyle (FMX) (stunts on motorcycles), Supermoto (motard) (motocross tracks on asphalt), and vintage motocross (motorcycle competition, create up to 1975).
The most famous in the world are two series: in America - AMA Championship, also known as the "National Championship" (nationals) and the World Championship Motocross, also known as the Grand Prix.
AMA Motocross Championship Series generally runs from early May to mid-August and consists of 12 stages on the 12 routes in different parts of the United States. Every race is held on Sundays at two classes of "Motocross" and "Motocross Lites". And consists of two rounds of 30 minutes plus two laps. In general, a step takes about 2 hours.
Motocross World Championship is held usually in Europe, with several "exit" stages in South Africa and Japan, but sometimes in America or other countries. The format is the same as racing in the AMA. Two classes: MX1 and MX2 arrival of two in each class. World Cup consists of 16 or more stages.
Both series combined race Motocross Des Nations (MXDN) (usually translated from the French, but it does mean Motocross Nations). The format is such that drivers represent their country at the teams: 3 person team, each in its class - MX1, MX2 and "Open." Phase 3 is held in check. Location varies from year to year. The strongest teams - the U.S., Belgium and the UK.
Physical activity

Those who do not ride on the motocross bike, usually do not realize how strong physical exertion experienced riders. For some reason they think that the riders do not do anything except to twist rudder and throttle, and feel that it is the same as driving a family car.
Motocross requires a very serious physical training, mostly arm, shoulder and endurance in general. Rider must keep control of the motorcycle at the maximum possible rate, while holding the bike weighs 100 pounds, which is usually about 50 horsepower. The hands and feet while riding the racer is constantly in motion, in the struggle to control and absorb shocks from minor bumps and big jumps, not counting possible undershooting the mark. Finally, professional racing last for more than an hour. This is a real test for the riders.
National Institute of Sports and Health in Inglewood, California, conducted tests of several professional athletes in the early '80s. Among them were runners, motokrossery, rugby players, football players, and many others. Tests have shown that the most stressful loads experienced motocross riders, and they also have the highest level of physical fitness.

New frenzy Meddisona
28-year-old Australian motofristayler Robbie "Maddo" Meddison, made his next breathtaking leap. This time the "Maddo" became Corinth Canal in Greece. Dug in the Corinth Canal in 1893, many riders dream to jump, but it was Meddisonu first.

History of motocross

                                                                                                                                                                                           Although motocross - English invention, but its popularity it is certainly obliged to the French, who gave him the name "skrembling." Year of birth of motocross is considered to be 1924, when in Camberley was the first in the world of motorcycling.The name of this species also gave the British motor sport - it comes from the English words "motorcycle» (motorcycle) and "cross-country» (cross country). Over time the name was reduced to acronyms MX, which is used today.The main difference from other types of motocross motorcycle sport - it features runs. The condition for the choice of trails for motocross - is off-road, all kinds of natural and artificial obstacles (such as trampolines, slides, turns), a large length (1.5-3 km). Also, these tracks often make looped, with special unpaved.Depending on the type of route (natural or artificial) produce varieties of motocross. For example, Supercross is a style of driving on a small track with artificial obstacles, a large number located at the stadiums or indoors. In this regard, Supercross, usually involved no more than 25 riders (about 40 in motocross).Duration of races is usually measured in time, plus a few laps, for example, or the Grand Prix Championship of America usually last 30 minutes plus two laps. In contrast to the professional, amateur races last about 10 minutes. At the end of the appointed time racers at the finish signal that is left 1 or 2 rounds, after which the wave of the checkered flag heralds the end of the race.
