Introduction

Competitive off-road motorcycle racing has gained significant popularity in the past several years. In the United States the AMA MX and SX Championships are the nationís best attended motorsport on dirt(1). Both types of racing take technical skills as well as physical fitness. MX and SX races are physically demanding events with the competitors spending significant amounts of time training specifically for these events. With the recent boom in popularity of the sports and the subsequent increase in sponsorship money available, many of the athletes are looking to gain further insight into training modalities that may increase there competitive ability. But despite its recent increase in popularity, very little research has been done examining the physiological characteristics of the professional riders.

I've been seriously contemplating running the Baja series (250, 500 & 1000) in 2012. It seems I need to be in "running a marathon" shape if I want to do so.
