I'm just getting into MX and I'm just wondering what most people wear on the track. I read the rules for what is required at a local track but what they require is very minimal. I know that full gear is the best thing to do but I just need to know what is normal to wear to go play on the track. I don't want to show up looking like an 8 year old whose mom dressed him up for rollerblading ya know but I don't want to cheap out on what really matters either. Any advice is appreciated !
Thanks for the replies folks ! I had no idea what people wear at the track because I've never tried it. I've only done occasional trail riding, nothing too serious. I'm getting into MX because I think theres more tracks around here than places to trail ride. I doubt I'll even get into racing much.
I practice on an MX track and trail ride. I wear Helmet, gloves, eye protection, chest protector, elbow pads, knee pads, hip/thigh/tail bone padded shorts, kidney belt and boots. Yes I look like an over dressed 8 year old and I don't care. If I go down, I want to get back up.
