What's a strategy to help me get threw ruts easier when your racing motocross

It's all about vision when it comes to ruts during a moto. First do a walk around the track & check out the dirt. Is it heavy or light, are the hosing it down after each moto. If it's heavy you're going to see some big ruts. Are they in the turns, after jumps or a whoop section. How big are the bikes, a 450 will rip it up in a hurry & leave foot peg ruts. How many usable lines are there? If there's only 1 solid line passing is going to be rough. Most times you'll have 2, especially in the turns, a tight inside line & a wide outside line. I always went outside berm unless pushed inside, I always felt quicker but the distance is increased. Nobody likes ruts, the pros hate them just as much as amateurs. You need to watch the guys in front of you & watch the ruts, you'll see them get deeper. There's nothing more fun than getting cross rutted at speed, it becomes a matter of strength & luck at that point. You need excellent vision, the right choice of tire & often big b****.

I just didn't know how to win. I had a good time racing but it takes a nice hunk of change. I also had the misfortune of casing a jump that threw me flying down a nice hillside-right in front of my mother. Since my after school job was at min. wage- mom was my main source of $ & my dad worked on the bikes I was retired. Note to self, never crash in front of your mom

The strategy would be to either be in them or steer clear of them. Which ever you find more advantageous.

Try to work out harder. It will make you stronger and increase your endurance. That might be just what you need to get to the next level.
