If you ride a motorcycle on a motocross track very often at all, you’ve more than likely ran into… over… through… around and finally avoided completely… RUTS
Ruts in turns or rutted turns are one of the most challenging obstacles on a motocross track. I can not tell you how many times I’ve wrecked in the middle of a rutted turn. Ruts in turns are just plain tough to master.
That’s okay though, because if you are anything like me, that’s what I love about motocross — There is always something to learn/practice and finally master.
Anyway, Motocross.com has some great new “Honda Riding Tips” and this one highlights Rutted Turns. Brandon Lutes is the one doing the riding and talking. Though I do not know Lutes personally, one of my very good friends does (they worked together at TWMX), and he’s told me that Lutes is one of the nicest guys around.
