It's summertime and that means one thing: It's time for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship! High temperatures, humidity, thunderstorms, 30-plus-minute two-lap motos, braking bumps, square edges, deep ruts, a 40-rider gate, the smell of barbecue in the air, and thousands of roaming, screaming fans along miles of fence line that surrounds a dauntingly high-speed outdoor playground. Just thinking of all that should carry some weight and make your heart rate jump, but for the riders (and mechanics) who have virtually no time off to get prepared for the 12 grueling rounds, it is a formidable task. The Monster Energy AMA Supercross series only has one weekend off in the 17-round series, and after the final round in Las Vegas on May 6 the first round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross in Sacramento, California, is just around the corner on May 20. That is only two weekends off in a little more than five months! That is next to no time to prepare for a completely different form of racing. So what exactly are the trials and tribulations of going from one series to the other? We give you a little insight on what some of the riders and mechanics have to go through going from indoors to outdoors.
