Heat is a subject we’ve talked quite a bit about this summer, as the early rounds of the 2011 Lucas Oil/AMA Pro Motocross Championship seemed, as a whole, to be hotter than usual, when taking heat index into account. Well, heat isn’t only a concern for motocross racers, obviously, but in athletics in general.
We can’t change the weather. We have to work with what Mother Nature gives us. I’ve already made the suggestion in past columns that the AMA create a rule – a rule in black and white – that will put together guidelines about the heat, such as when the heat index is over X amount, shorten the motos to 25 minutes, and when it’s over Y amount, shorten the motos to 20 minutes, etc. I think this would go a long way toward solving the problem.

Over the years, X Games has tried to bring in more and more Moto events. Some have stuck, and some haven’t. The list includes Freestyle Moto X (the original), Step Up, Best Trick, Best Whip, Moto X Racing (supercross, basically), Women’s Moto X Racing, Super Moto X, Speed & Style, and now Enduro X and Women’s Enduro X. I may even be missing some because this is just off the top of my head.

What really happened at RedBud is that we all got a lesson about what really matters in life, and motocross racing doesn’t. Not really. This past weekend we lost Josh Lichtle. Like most racers at any AMA National, Lichtle had been racing motocross since he was a little kid, and he and his family have been a staple in the motocross community for almost 20 years. Lichtle would’ve turned 24 next month. Reports say that Lichtle passed away this weekend from heat-related issues coming from racing at the RedBud National. And no matter how much anyone likes motocross, it’s not worth this. No sport is.
