Amateur Day is the day you want to be your best. Every one is feeling the pressure no one can deny it. The announcer calls up your class, you pick yourself up, start up your bike and get on the grid with about 40 riders revving there bike. Ms.Motocross puts up the 5 second sign and then the sound of 40 riders with there throttle to the ground staring at the grid.
Amateurs everywhere prepare for this day, the day they get a chance to get recognized to become sponsored or to even become pro.Like all sports if you want to become pro you will have to be recognized. There are all kinds of sponsors for motocross also like all other sports. Most people don’t understand what motocross takes from you and what it gives.
There is a rider out racing that has a 5 year deal with Kawasaki and this little pro is Adam Cianciarulo. Adam has proven himself through his years of racing motocross and has more sponsors then I can even name. Also, there are other little maniacs that have sponsors like Cooper Webb and Jordan Bailey he has alot of sponsors too. Those are about all the little guys that have a pro sponsorship, is just wait till they get older and ride with the real pro’s.
There are two main tracks where amateurs can get recognized and those two tracks are the Loretta Lynn’s in Hurricane mills, Tennessee and Daytona Supercross in Daytona, Florida. Both tracks are motocross central for sponsors like REDBULL, MONSTER and ROCKSTAR so if you do good in your class you will definitely get recognized.The one thing that most people don’t realize is that there are so many other amateurs that will be there and that will put everything on the line to win that race. Everyone deserves a chance to be the next generation rider.
