DVD Review: Motocross World Championship 2009

Looking back at the 2009 Motocross World Championship
If you need a reminder of just how impressive the Motocross World Championship was then you need to watch the MX09 Official Motocross World Championship review 2009.

There isn't a single moment of the Championship missed, all the thrills and spills are covered, and there are certainly plenty of spills. The Championship charted its course around the world stopping off at fifteen different venues with each one providing a unique challenge to the riders.

Both the MX1 and MX2 classes are covered in depth with rider interviews and excellent commentary from Paul Malin, former motocross rider. Malin covered both the British Championship as well as the World Championship and his expertise can be heard when the British competitors came to the fore at some of the rounds. You are also treated to an explanation on the complexity of the circuits by Malin, and which corners are going to catch out the riders.

The first round of the Championship got off to an extremely muddy start in Italy. In fact the conditions were so bad the second round of both Championships had to be called off.

It wasn't so much of a race as survival of the fittest. There was a rider equipped with a helmet-cam but that was short lived thanks to mud covering the lens! However it did show just how bad the conditions were.

Bulgaria was a big improvement weather wise and the racing really got underway there, with the French dominating proceedings. There were quite a few elements of this season that made motocross history and the first of those was young American, Zach Osborne, winning his first GP at Turkey.

Catalunya provided one of the most spectacular and nail-biting races of the season in the MX2 class. Billy MacKenzie crashed out, as did Antonio Cairoli. They picked themselves up only for Cairoli to fall again. It was edge-of-your-seat racing.

The British Round at Mallory Park achieved its own little bit of history with Marvin Musqin taking the first double of the Championship. Talented young German rider Ken Roczen became the youngest ever winner at the tender age of 15 at his home round, making even more history.

Sometimes in sport, a run-away Champion makes a break for it early in the season, but that wasn't the case in MX1 or MX2. Both series ran full distance with plenty of close racing to keep the title chase alive until the last moments.

Each round has superb graphics and you are kept well up to date with all the changes in the Championships as the battles rage.

This is a double DVD so you will need to set aside approximately five hours to get through the whole season.

It is definitely worth the time though and you will enjoy watching all the ups and downs of the season.
