There have been Women's National Motocross Championships in the United States since 1974. That makes women's racing just as old as the AMA 125 National and AMA Supercross series. But, unlike the AMA series, women's racing has had numerous sanctioning bodies. In fact, a list of the organizations that have played a role in women's motocross since 1974 reads like an acronym encyclopedia.

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT (06/20/12)

By John Basher PHOTO OF THE WEEK: PART 1 Shooting photos for bike tests is a pretty creative and fun part of my job. It allows me to get away from the computer and out of the office.

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT (01/02/11)

By John Minert PHOTO OF THE WEEK Yesterday Monster/Kawasaki factory rider Jake Weimer broke his arm while riding at teammate Ryan Villopoto's Supercross track in SoCal.
