How early is too early?

My five year old son wants to start racing in motocross races. They have a group age 4-6 races, however Im not sure he's ready. He rides on his own and even does small jumps nothing fancy. My SO thinks its going to be great for his self esteem and that its a really good idea for him to race next year. So my question is how early is it to allow him to start racing?

  • I say that you wont know if he is ready if you don't let him try . Go ahead let him give it a shot if he wants to worst case he stops and tries again later.Good luck. hope he has fun.
