Description

We look at the motocross in the context of the extreme sports phenomenon of the late 90s, and how it influenced pop culture. I will make the case that motocross was the most culturally relevant motorsport since 60s NASCAR, and celebrate figures like Travis Pastrana, Ricky Carmichael, and the McGrath v. Stewart rivalry.

Motocross was the coolest thing ever to young Nolan, even if he wouldn't ride a motorcycle until 20 years after the fact. All of my friends loved it and wore MX branded clothing, I think it definitely contributed to me getting into cars.
