Motocross is the roots of all off road motorcycle competition. The tracks range from 1-2 miles in length, with wide open straightaways, rutted turns, and jumps mixed in throughout the course. Motokazie runs motocross races in Mankato, MN in the Blue Earth River Valley at the Kato Cycle Club. Consisting of mostly natural terrain, this track has large elevation changes, wide open turns, and jumps that are for all skill levels. The track is a black dirt/clay base with some sandy berms. We also have a 50cc track for the mini riders that is a sandy base mixed with black dirt for a loamy soil mixture.
