11 year old - which 85cc race class?

Recommended Posts

I could use a little help here. My 11 year old son has done a little 65cc racing (like 4 races total) and want to move up to an 85cc bike. Looks like he has 2 class options: 85 Jr (ages 7 - 11) or 85 C (ages 10 -15).

The few times I've been to the track I've not paid enough attention to the differences. I'm thinking 85 C class would be more comfortable for him - at least at the beginning???

Could use some advice from the many who have MX'ed with their kids for years - we're still pretty new to all of this but loving it!:moon:

Welcome to the addiction :moon:

I'd recommend putting your boy in the Jr 85 class for a series or so then move him up. You will be surprised how fast those little guys are on the 85's. He'll have plenty of competition to make it fun.

Does your track offer an 85 open class or something similar? We race in atleast 2 classes per race maybe that is an option for you too?

Take care !
