Soccer VS motocross, which do you think would be a better career? Well, if you have been a Manchester United fan for a long time, then chances are you would insist that being a MU player is way better and will be a dream for everyone.

Chances also are you do not have an idea about the benefits of being a pro motocross rider.

That being said, let us take a look at some of the reasons why being a motocross rider is a better career option than being a Manchester United soccer player.

Weather not an issue

While heavy rains can halt a game of soccer, motocross events can continue whether the sun is shining or the rain is heavily pouring down.

Bad weather brings more fun and excitement to motocross riding and if you are planning to train during winter, MUDSA has a list of the best motocross training facilities for you as well.

No annoying referees

All referee regulated sports including soccer tend to be ruined by bad calls from referees and these annoy fans and players alike. In motocross, however, annoying calls that can ruin the excitement and fairness of the game are absent.

Soccer players and motocross riders may have similarities in training and diet, but being a motocross rider still comes out on top.

Athletes should always prioritize nutrition, coupled with a good workout routine, to always stay in top shape.

Some sports can be super demanding, that is why if you are a soccer player or a motocross rider, you may have to consume more carbohydrates than an ordinary individual.

Soccer and motocross have several things in common. One good example is that both sports require strength endurance, cardio-respiratory conditioning, and balance.

That being said, a good training regimen plus good quality carbohydrates, high fat, and high protein are needed to survive in the game and perform at your best.

In this post, MUDSA will reveal what is in the diet and training of Manchester United players and motocross riders and what they have in common.

Nutrition and commitment

It is very important to maintain ideal body weight for both soccer players and motocross riders. The lighter your weight is while maintaining maximal body strength, the better you can perform in the game or the race.

It is ideal to consume your carbohydrates near the game or riding times so it can be broken down into your blood and can be used for muscles.

The basic plan that Manchester United players follow is taking in thirty to fifty grams of fat, proteins, and a less or equal amount of carbohydrates in every 3 waking hours. This is also true for motocross riders.

Both of them are not including wheat products, soy, corn, added sugar, and whole grains in their diet as these foods are considered to be the enemy of athletes.

Protein intake should contain bison, elk, beef, chicken, pork, duck, turkey, wild caught fishes, and omega-3 eggs.

But, if you do not have someone to accompany you, who says riding alone would not be fun too?

Professional bikers are better sportsmen

They fall but they get up immediately even if they crash hard, and they get back onto the track and finish what they have started. This scenario is very different from what you can see in the soccer field where players stay lying on the pitch even with only the slightest of collisions.
