Do you have to go to school to become a professional motocross racer?

Not necessarily. Most motocross riders start out pretty young, even in their elementary years. I always believed that STARTING YOUNG IN A HIGHLY-DANGEROUS COMPETITIVE SPORT such as motocross is good. At a young age, you are more able to experience MORE falls, MORE mistakes, MORE side, front and rear collisions with your rivals and peers. THESE MAKE YOU PREPARED, TOUGHER and give you AN INTERNAL SENSE OF WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND YOU AT HIGH SPEED. You are then learning, at a very early age, to PROJECT and COMPUTE the speeds you need to attain to FIT YOUR BIKE ON YOUR BEAD (a "bead" is your practiced route around the track, which you intend to take and finish at the shortest time possible- it is also the route you know best, where your skills are just right for the challenge of the track). "Fitting your bike on your bead" means riding your own way through the track at very high speed WHILE OTHER PEOPLE ARE BUSY CROSSING YOUR PATH and flying above your head, FOLLOWING THEIR BEADS. You also gain REFLEXES- the automatic body reactions to situations that occur at high speed, such as another rider crossing your front end at a very tight turn. Using the proper brake (front, rear, or both) depends pretty much on the angle of your front wheel, your body position on the bike- AND APPLYING THIS IN AN INSTANT can save lives, starting with yours. You don't need a college degree to learn these: you need hundreds of hours of practice on a track and other places such as bike trails in the big outdoors. That being said, MOST YOUNG MOTOCROSS RIDERS NEVER MAKE IT TO COLLEGE because they are picked by talent scouts to ride for companies that have investments in motorcycle racing and motocross racing accessories. But GET INTO MOTOCROSS AS A SPORT and don't forget that a college degree is much worth sweating MORE for. When you get too old to compete in races, a college degree, a business, a job- or all of these, will always be a better chance your future will be bright. THEN YOU CAN BUY A REALLY GOOD MOTOCROSS BIKE TO RIDE ON WEEKENDS AWAY FROM YOUR JOB.
