There is no sight like 40 of the fastest racers in the world bolting down a freshly tilled straightaway just inches from one another. When the gate clanks into the soil, the noise of the perfectly tuned racing engines firing in unison fills the air while the pack thunders away to the tight first turn. We see 48 times over the course of every summer, but each time is as exciting as the last. The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship kicked off this past weekend at Sacramento, California’s Hangtown Raceway, and GoPro cameras caught to action from the helmets of seven riders, including the entire Rockstar Energy Racing team. If you have time, Ryan Villopoto’s romp of the first moto is available to view in its entirety.
