It was in 1972 that Motocross started as a new sporting activity in the United States of America, this was a markedly different experience quite unknown this side of the Atlantic ocean. Motorcycles and revamped dirt bikes were used to race across a enclosed strip of racing track which included steep gradients, sharp turns and sudden corners, many bumps and jumps with the track made of natural terrain.
Motocross and the required Motorcross Insurance for visitors arrived to United States more recently. Edison Dye is known as the "Father of American Motocross" and it in the 1960’s that Motorcross arrived from Europe as a popular sport. This was an entirely new experience for American audiences who were earlier accustomed to witnessing flat track racing and they found it very appealing. American spectators got to see talented European racers for the first time in the US. The word Motocross itself derives from the French word for motor cycle - motorcyclette - and cross country - Motocross.
