Motocross evolved from off-road motorcycle racing in the United Kingdom back in 1909 and races were then known as "scrambles." By the 1930s Motocross was growing in popularity; races became international and were known as motocross racing after combining the French word for motorcycle, "motocyclette," with a shortened form of the term "cross country."
The sport grew to include different versions of the event and were held in indoor stadiums. Along with racing to win, riders often displayed aerial tricks along the route. Today, motocross includes outdoor all-terrain racing as well as indoor events held inside arenas.
