So, you want to see the best motocross crash videos?
James Stewart seems to be the king of crash during the last few years. The Houston 2012 Supercross, held the end of March, saw Bubba near completion of a triple jump.
Hitting one of the pylons, he and his bike flipped over and parted ways on the track, with Stewart stopping just off the track. The wreck aggravated a hand injury from his earlier crash in Indianapolis. He walked away knowing he would miss New Orleans in April. An experienced, brilliant rider, perhaps the lesson is more focus.
Take a look at some of his motocross crash videos and you'll wonder how he's still in one-piece !
At Red Bud in July 2008, Mike Alessi crashed just past the ski jump on the first lap. He lost control and then lost the bike, which skidded away a bit but remained on the track. Down and out, Alessi was hit by rider after rider as they came over the top and ran across him before a caution flag was displayed in the area.
Surprisingly, the riders avoided hitting the motorcycle, lying on the ground nearby. The bike was picked up and ridden off the track, while Alessi was carted off the track. He suffered a bruised lung, broken rib and two broken scapula. Yeah, it is a tough sport. Tough helmets, jerseys, boots, chest protectors and every other protective item known to humankind are a benefit in a motocross crash.
On February 9, 2009, FMX rider Jeremy Lusk died from head injuries suffered in a motocross crash. Attempting the Seatgrab Indian Backflip at an X-Knights event in Costa Rica, he lost control of his bike.
Jeremy was part of the Metal Mulisha team. Coming off the X game gold medal in FMX 2008 and a silver medal in Moto X best trick, he was reaching for one better display to bump up his stellar career. There are two lessons to learn from this tragedy: Safety gear can only do so much and prepare as much as possible for any trick.
Lusk excelled at the sport and had every right to be confident in his skill and bike. Accidents happen and this was a tragic one. Videos of this incident are quite detailed.
Chad Reed had a major motocross crash at Millville’s MX Class Moto 2 in 2011. Out in front, he hit the jump.
The bike started going sideways and forty feet midair, he and the bike parted ways. The bike flew towards the dirt away from the track and Reed peddled through the air to maintain some balance and minimize impact and injuries.
Amazingly, he got up, climbed on the bike, and finished fourteenth in the competition. I am not sure if the old adage about getting back on a horse after you fall off applies here, but it worked. It shows that every bit of body armor and safety equipment is worth the time it takes to put it on.
Perhaps the biggest lesson is to prepare for the unexpected. Studying motocross crash videos from the shows on TV tell you what can happen to even the best of the best. Learn and give yourself a chance to survive.
Those motocross crash videos are a permanent reminder of those slip-ups, but use it as a helpful learning curve for us all.

My first dirtbike ride... CRASH
Awesome dirtbike crashes
Everyone at some time will have a crash – that’s a fact of dirt biking. So now is the time to get set up with the right helmets and pads before you start zipping about on your motorbikes.
Be specific on your body size and measurements to get a snug fit. If your clothing is too tight it will impair your skills and limit what you can do.
And if it’s too loose it’ll simply be falling off you, so there is hardly any point in wearing it.
Change your helmets, chest protectors and gear regularly when you find defects or signs of age, so when you do have a crash your wearing stuff that will be operating at its optimum.
