Make Motocross Great Again started this petition to American Motocross Association

The core of motocross since its inception has been the riders themselves, who know they wouldn’t even have a chance to dream about two-wheeled glory without years of financial support from their families, countless hours of practice where the threat of injury looms just as large as it does at the pro level of any contact sport, and endless help from trusted friends turning wrenches on their rides along the way.

Unfortunately, the big sponsors and mega-teams that have turned motocross into a large-scale enterprise in corporate marketing, conveniently brush their stars aside as soon as they are unable to produce solid TV numbers. Sadly, one of the most common causes of a rider's demise is a life-changing injury. 

Here's where the sport fails its most important asset -- the riders themselves. Unlike every other professional entity that produces the kind of return-on-investment that motocross does, there has never been any sort of health plan, severe injury insurance, or a union to protect jobs in the sport. Injured riders are even scrutinized as severely as Olympic athletes when it comes to something as simple as pain management options. It seems most things are stacked against the riders. 

It's time for motocross riders at all levels to organize and demand the rights they have earned through their own sacrifices. Imagine being able to demand more R&D from the manufacturers. Picture yourself having real input into future bike and chassis designs. How about racing with the ease of mind that if the unthinkable happens you and your family will be covered financially? These things can all happen with a unified, unbreakable front from the very people who create those incredible TV ratings. 

The time is now, We are calling on not only riders but the invisible heroes of the sport; Moms, Dads, families, mechanics, and everyone else that makes up the lifeblood of MX. Sign up here to tell the American Motocross Association it is time to make motocross great again.
