I have been an off road motorcycle enthusiast since the early 1970's.  I raced motocross and hare scrambles and I was also a regional racing press photographer in-between the racing.  I was lucky enough to cover nearby national and international motocross races of the day.  I witnessed the start of American National Motocross racing first hand and saw incredible growth and changes.  The grass roots beginning of the sport were worlds away from the extreme sports category it has grown into.  It was a simpler time for sure but there were heroic things taking place as well.  One of my main interests in opening classicmotocrossimages.com is to share old photos with similar enthusiasts.  I hope to provide prints and even posters for those interested.  For now I am building a web site to share a glimpse of bikes, riders and tracks that are a part of this rich history.  The majority of these images have never been widely seen by the public.  Even the ones published in the local "Checkered Flag News" were but a handful of the pictures taken during a typical race day.
