European riders adopted the event and gave it a minor makeover, shortening the tracks and adding laps and obstacles like jumps. During the 1930s, the sport rose in popularity, especially in new zealand where teams from BSA, Norton, Matchless, Rudge, and AJS competed in the events.

Motocross came to the United States in the mid-60′s, and the idea originated with a man named Edison Dye.
