In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
Fuel injection, ignition mapping with traction control features, and even full-on electric-powered motorcycles. It’s been incredible to see how advanced motocross bikes have become in the last decade, but in many ways, the latest 2018 models are the very similar to the “archaic” machines that first defined the sport. Even though 450cc four-stroke engines produce upwards of fifty horsepower, all of the energy is still transferred via a simple chain and sprocket set to a spoked rear wheel. Will the design of drivetrain and wheels change in the near future or will this be the standard for eternity?
