1Hey Coach,
I am a girl and I'm really good at motocross. I have been riding since I was about nine and we went to a competion, and I absolutely love it. I want to know how to turn pro in freestyle motocross. Please HELP ME.
Michelle

Hey Michelle

More and more girls are starting to take up motocross as a sport, which means there are more opportunities for girls and young women to turn pro. The best thing to do is enter as many amateur races as possible and get as much experience riding as you can. By trying different types of terrain and different courses, you'll become a better rider and have a better chance of riding freestyle. Once you turn 15 and if you're good enough, you'll be able to join the Women's Motocross League. The league holds several pro events each year across the United States and also organizes amateur competitions. For more info on the WML, head to www.wml-mx.com.

Whether you want to become a professional freestyle motocross rider or just take it up for fun, you should always learn to ride from a qualified, professional instructor. Don't just rely on the backyard lessons from your boyfriend, brother or Dad. You're more likely to get hurt and pick up bad habits, (but don't tell your boyfriend or your Dad that.)

For first-time riders, a great way to start is to sign up for a lesson with OP Girls Learn To Ride. This is a great introduction to riding which includes a five-hour motorcross lesson on a brand new bike from a qualified instructor for just $50 US. You can get more info by heading to www.girlslearntoride.com.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
