UAE Motocross and the Final Round of DMX

Motocross is widely considered to be the world’s most popular form of motorcycle racing. It is a form of off-road racing that is done within an enclosed course. This sport is so exciting to watch and the whole course can be seen from the sidelines. Dubai Motocross Club is Dubai’s original motocross track. It was created by a group of motocross enthusiasts and continues to run purely on the passion and hard work of our volunteers and members. We welcome all our motorcycle friends to join in on the motocross fun.

This season has wrapped and the championships earned. This was an exciting season in for DMX. We started our season in October on a completely remodelled and newly designed track. Thank you to Sean Gaugain of SRG Motorsports, your vision was our club’s reality and it did not disappoint. The sport of racing motorcycles over a rough course with many obstacles; hills turned jumps for our fast and skilful riders, sharp turns, deep sands (we are in the desert after all) and surprise hidden and uncovered rocks has kept our riders focused and our spectators an unbeatable combination of thrills and gut wrenching nervous energy – especially for those of us with little riders; like our family. Our Junior classes have seen the most growth in the club this season, with over 41 riders this season. We have riders starting at age four and they do not disappoint. My own boys have been racing with Dubai Motocross Club for four years now, each starting their race “career” at age four. They are Myles Sexson, age 9 on bike number 86 – KTM 65cc Class and Liam Sexson, age seven on bike number 31 – KTM 65cc Class. These kids, all of them are equal parts; heart and true grit.
