first question a budding VMX tragic asks is “how the hell do I get into vintage motocross and how do I get started?
It can all look a little scary and intimidating when you turn up to a VMX race meeting with your “new” bike – either freshly restored, something that you just bought off eBay or the bargain that you bought from the old bloke that had the “works MXer” in his shed for 30 years. All those other race hardened blokes (and girls) chatting away to each other about bikes and racing, and all those very shiny machines – and the noise! and the smell! – aahh I love the smell of two stroke in the morning.
Well fear not, there are lots of other VMX tragics who have been through the same thing in the past – and believe it or not, used to have ONLY ONE BIKE!! They’re only too happy to introduce a fellow VMX addict to the fold – in fact most of them introduce themselves in the twelve-step fashion of – “Hi, my name is Mark and I’m a vmx addict” – or something like that, you can probably get the picture.
Well there are a few steps you have to go through to start racing – and I’ll ignore the fact that you haven’t got a bike – coz that’s just not gonna happen is it?

Become an Official
Now if you really want to get serious about racing and vintage motocross, then you want to be a MA Official. Being an official is great! – everybody is your friend, you immediately convey authority – ‘coz you can stop someone from racing if you want (and every racer hates that), you can make 100 fellow VMX tragics very happy, and you get to hang out with dirty, smelly, noisy old motorcycles for a weekend (a great excuse for the Mrs if she doesn’t like bikes…). Do yourself a favour and apply to be an Official here, all your VMX mates will love you forever…
