Motorcycle racing is an inherently dangerous sport. We all know that. But still, when one of our own is catastrophically injured or dies while racing, it’s still hard to take, or even understand. Amateur motocross racer Tyler Hoeft, 14, died Friday of massive head injuries, one day after crashing his motorcycle while racing the JS7 Spring Classic in Worthham, Texas. Details are still a little sketchy, but from what I can tell, it was an extremely muddy event, which makes it even bizarre. It makes you wonder how much safer can we make our sport? I think FELD is doing all they can at the professional level to make things safe, and withoug totally re-thinking the way we build our tracks, it’s going to come down to just more advancements in helmet technology and other safety gear.
