Keeping Daredevils Protected With Motocross Insurance
Many people are lured by the thrill of motocross. This fast-paced, adrenaline-packed sport is thrilling and impressive. Toe-curling bends, breath-taking speeds, and, more recently, death-defying jumps and tricks make this sport extremely exciting to watch and participate in. All this also makes insurance for motocross racers all the more important.
While motocross races are fairly short, they’re also one of the most physically demanding motorcycle sports available. Riders have to be in peak physical and mental condition to perform to the best of their ability and as safely as possible.
The problem with a dangerous sport is that sooner or later one of your participants is likely to suffer from an injury. Although motocross athletes are incredibly skilled and adept at controlling their bikes, accidents are likely and motocross insurance is necessary.
What Types of Injury Can Happen During Motocross?
A study monitoring injury in pediatric motocross athletes determined that out of 35 participants, all of them suffered an injury, including one causing death. Most of these injuries were fractures on the lower half of the body.
An injury could be something minor such as a dislocation or a hairline fracture that heals quickly, but motocross participants can also suffer significant and catastrophic injuries.
Out of the five most common motocross injuries, three are bone breakages. All involve long and uncomfortable recovery times.
What Other Damage Can a Motocross Bike Cause?
Not only the rider can sustain damage during motocross events or practice sessions. An out of control bike can also cause significant damage to property during crashes or collisions with other bikes. Unpredictable terrain, unforeseen obstacles, and natural events, such as extreme weather, can also make the motocross track a very hazardous place to be.
Collisions involving other people can also cause injury and harm, whether they are other riders or members of the public.
How Do I Protect Myself From Liability Or Injury?
The best way to protect yourself and your riders is to take the necessary safety precautions by ensuring that:
- your riders are wearing adequate safety gear at all times during races and practice sessions.
- broken safety gear is immediately replaced.
- the bikes are regularly checked and maintained.
- the track is checked for potential hazards and obstacles.
- your riders only ride if they are in good health and injury-free.
- your riders aren’t overtired or overworked.
- practice sessions include adequate respite breaks.
- riders receive all the necessary support and safety measures when attempting to learn new tricks and stunts.
- riders observe speed limits.
- riders observe safety rules.
- your riders understand and follow race day rules.
- there is adequate insurance coverage.
