Daredevils

These lads are crazy! This was MX1 Can-Am pro racing on the weekend at Gopher Dunes in Ontario, Canada. This guy isn't actually balancing on the trees, but high in the air after roaring up an earth ramp and soaring up into the sky! The good ones land on the downward ramp just out of the photo to the right, and then ride over a long stretch of rutted loose sandy earth. The whole course is over a mile and a half of jumps, rough track, hairpin turns and sometimes another 30 riders all trying to get into first place. It's pretty noisy and exciting to watch! And we took our own barbecue and eats and sat outside in the sunshine after the races were over.

This is such a great idea! I think I'll look up the closest motorcross raceway and go check it out. Jack would love it!
