Motorcycle sports: racing, freestyle, timed speed...
Motorcycle sports is a vast field that encompasses all the sporting aspects of motorcycling. Not all disciplines are races or timed speed events as several disciplines test various driving skills of the participants.
Motorcycle racing can be divided into two categories, those that take place on paved roads and those that take place off-road. Track racing is a motorcycle sport where teams or individuals race around an oval track.
Road racing is motorcycle racing that takes place on hard, road-like surfaces, often paved. Races can take place either on purpose-built racetracks or on closed public roads dedicated to Moto Ventures.
A rally is an event that takes place on public roads during which competitors must pass through a number of checkpoints (checkpoints) in various geographical areas, while obeying road traffic laws (not to be confused with car rallies such as WRC).
