Motorcycle sport, like all other sports, has the potential to have an environmental impact on the earth’s natural resources. The task of reducing the environmental impact of motor sport is daunting, and motorcycle competitors can play highly instrumental role. As participants, they are directly affected by a degraded environment, inasmuch as it threatens their performances, their health and even their lives.
