    I had a late start. I started riding at 13 and turned pro when I was 19. An accident ended my career, I still ride though, I just don't compete anymore...too old...lol

    Marty Smith started riding at age 5 and became the first 125 national champ by 18.

    A rule of thumb that I usually go by is when the kid can ride a bicycle without training wheels so obviously the age can vary from kid to kid but is a good general rule to go by.

    My son was on trainers when he was four, but only because he showed such a keen interest. Normally, I'd say six would be a good age.
