Amazing Videos of Child Dirt Bikers

Many parents worry about pint-sized dirt bikers. The roaring engines, the stunts, the jumps, and the speed are enough to make anyone fear for racers of any age. The fact that the participating children are as young as two is even more chill-inducing.

The kids in these videos, though, are quite competent. It’s second-nature for humans to turn their bodies in the direction they need to travel, so steering comes easily. Controlling the speed of the bike is probably the most challenging skill in dirt biking, but these racers seem to have mastered it quickly. Who knows what lies in their future in dirt-bike racing? They’re already winning trophies in dirt biking before they can ride two-wheel bicycles.

The Motocross Kids Dash for Cash relay race shows just how much fun little kids have when racing each other around a dirt track. This event was held at Lake Elsinore in Northern California. Cash does make a kid of a certain age dash even faster.
