R2R Announces 2nd Annual Ride Day

Scottsdale, AZ - The Road 2 Recovery National Ride Day is being held during the month of September to provide a mobile medical unit at the top Amateur Nationals. Realizing that amateurs are the future of motocross, we believe they deserve the same attention as professional athletes while in competition. The onsite medical unit debuted at Loretta Lynnʼs in 2007 and it provides treatment from qualified trainers and doctors that have a background in motocross injuries. The unit also provides mobile education with information on products that can help prevent injuries.
