    Thanks to Raycon for sponsoring this episode.Go to buyraycon.com/donut for 15% off your order! Brought to you by Raycon.
    We look at the motocross in the context of the extreme sports phenomenon of the late 90s, and how it influenced pop culture. I will make the case that motocross was the most culturally relevant motorsport since 60s NASCAR, and celebrate figures like Travis Pastrana, Ricky Carmichael, and the McGrath v. Stewart rivalry.
    Motocross was the coolest thing ever to young Nolan, even if he wouldn't ride a motorcycle until 20 years after the fact. All of my friends loved it and wore MX branded clothing, I think it definitely contributed to me getting into cars.

title should be " How FREESTYLE Motocross became the biggest sport of the early 00s" as they really only covered freestyle. mx isn't just all freestyle. racing came first and will always be bigger than freestyle.

Back in 2006, on the first day of school, I wore a fox jersey and I was the only kid for the entire year that dressed like that. It was like that for years after and now seeing brands like fox and others in the motocross scene make a comeback, makes me smile.

Blessing & a curse but we witnessed an era of progression that I doubt we will ever witness again. How many backflips can a person do on a dirtbike based on a physics stand point? How much faster can someone go around a supercross track?

If the pattern with motorcycle racing is the same as auto racing, what killed motocross was most likely sanctioning bodies driving the prices of competing up through Homologation and rules. Every racing series suffers through this and eventually it will kill it of left unchecked. For example the 24 hours of lemons 🍋 the racing series for $500 cars, now requires upwards of $5000 worth of safety equipment, plus $600-1000 per driver as cars get faster and grids become larger. Its just inevitable Sadly.
