ATV racing is a very risky sport. There is no assurance that a ride can be perfectly done even to a professional rider. But there is always a beginning to every sport you take. You just have to know the basics before this can become your thing.
You must have the right skills before joining this kind of race. Maintaining stamina will help you endure the rides of various terrains. In your regular fitness program, better include cardio exercise. Being able to sustain riding ATV for two hours will be a test for your physical capacity. Daily exercise is necessary, specifically in enhancing strength to your arms, wrist and hand. And of course being healthy at all times will keep you going. A well-balanced meal should be taken to support the needs of your body.
Given that you already have the skills needed, safety will be the next thing you will look upon. I recommend you to enroll short courses in riding ATV to be properly guided by professional riders. It is essential to know your machine. Never disregard the manual because this can explain what’s going on beneath your ATV. Try to hear its sounds and understand the controls – brakes, throttle and shifting. There should be a plate number facing the back and a nerf bars on your unit to avoid being intertwined with other racers. Make sure to learn first the techniques in ATV racing before spending too much for the accessories. However, preparing a budget for the damages that may occur along the way is advisable. As we all know, every vehicle demands to be maintained how much more for this kind of vehicle that could be used in any terrain.
Practice can never be missed in almost everything that you do. To be a great ATV racer you must have at least six times a week to practice. Select a leveled and open area about 100 by 200 feet wide, that is away from blockage and danger. At other times, go to places with hard muddy plane so you’ll apply and get used to the maneuvers. Use milk cartons or disposable bottles with sand in them for the signs in the terrain, never use objects made of glass. ATV is designed for rough roads. Therefore, practicing on a public road or a tiled and smooth surface is a big no-no.
If you think you are not yet equipped with the required skills, it is best for you not to rush in joining a race. After all, the most important thing in this game is to reach the finish line safely. It takes a lot more practice before you can get to the actual race. When the perfect time for you to race arrives, just stay calm. Give your best shot and enjoy your first ride.
