  1. Risk Racing Holeshot Start Gate

    For anyone serious about their racing, you'll already know that the start line is such an important element to your motocross race. To use a well abused quote: "It's the only time you can pass every rider in one corner".

    Without a real gate there's no way you could ever tune in your reaction times properly. These gates are used by almost all the professional riders and any amateur that you regularly see get good starts probably has one too!

    It amused me sometimes with the amount of graphics, plastics and other parts we sell which will never a make a difference to your results - these start gates will be the cheapest improvement you'll ever receive whilst racing.

    If you decide to make the purchase you can find them HERE.

It's a full time motocross practice track, seems to be open any day but I'd call in advance to double check(0876816463).

    They charged €25 for a full day of practice. The track was suitable for beginners but still has doubles, rhythm sections and big table-tops for expert riders. It's exceptionally well looked after. There seems to be some drift car practice going on there too (massive yard attached).

    The video is from Robin Watsons helmet. That's me on the red Honda, number 42, white b
