…But yeah, no motorsports. I want my athletes to do something physically demanding.
You haven’t been on a dirtbike lately, have you?
I’ve never had a weight training session in the gym that would equal some of the times I’ve lifted my motorcycle over wet logs at chest height at 8,000 ft. above sea level in the mud and snow while straining to extract every last oxygen molecule in the atmosphere into my lungs.
In other words, the motorsports I have participated in have been far more physically demanding than what you might expect.
Oh, by the way, come to Montana this winter and I’ll put you on a snowmobile in the mountains in seven feet of fresh powder and then you’ll come back and edit your post here. I promise.[/quote]
It’s true. I’ve never ridden either a dirtbike or a snowmobile, though I’ve always wanted to. My only bikes are cruisers… I should have been more clear in any case–dirtbike/motocross hadn’t entered my mind.
I was thinking about NASCAR etc. I’m pretty sure the whole body has to work substantially in motocross/supercross events, although pachell’s link has forced me to rethink that as well.
I may have to take you up on that offer though. I’ve wanted to get to Montana for years now and do some climbing and hiking.
Back to the drawing board I guess…
