For anyone who owns a motocross bike, having a track in your own backyard is the ultimate dream. Roll out of bed in the morning and chug an energy drink, put on your kit, walk out to the race shop, fire up your ride, and head out to your own personal, fully groomed motocross track that looks like something out of Fox Racing’s old “Dream On” advertising campaign. No loading and unloading of bikes, no two-hour drive to the track, no lines or gate fees, and, best of all, no crowded track! You ride motos all day with a select few lucky riding buddies you’ve invited over, kick back at the end of the day, rinse, and repeat.
Rally car racing star Ken Block has turned this dream into a reality at his ranch home just outside of Park City, Utah, and one of his riding buddies just happens to be one of the greatest icons of the sport, Jeremy McGrath. On a snowy fall day, Block and McGrath got together to put in some laps at the Block Ranch on Ken’s brand-new private motocross course.
