All Japan Motocross Championship has the LX class for femail riders. Many femail riders of broad range of ages and backgrounds come to race. This photo is taken on my first visit to the All Japan Championship race. From the reflection on the helmet I felt the rider was exhausted.
The motocross (dirt bikes) races are supported by grass root activities by motorcycle shops, equipment companies and the riders’ families. The overall motor sports activities in Japan has lost energy mainly by more than two decades economy depression. Wish a better day will come to all of the riders next year.
