A perennial hot spot for top riders, the Aztec Motorcross Track is also home to Coby Adair, Killy Rusk, Zack Gurley, Brandon Smith, Terrance Yarborough, Nathan Hensley, Mark Grady, Team Fun Center Suzuki and other celebrated amateur and professionals. Tedesco, Tomac, the Johnson, and Ronnie Clark have all passed through Aztec on their way to becoming the sport's best. The track is regarded northern New Mexico's and Southern Colorado’s premier motocross venue.

The new outdoor "national" style layout has proven to be fun and challenging for all levels. It is known for its many elevation changes and a signature uphill step-up! The track is high speed and features many tabletops and jump combos such as step on step offs, sweeping bowl berms, a cool downhill, rhythm sections, rollers, and more. Soil conditions range from hard-pack  to loamy. Onsite water tanks and two water trucks help keep the track in top shape for races. 

The separate beginner/kids track provides a safe environment for learning and coaching. It features simple table tops, rhythm sections, gentle whoops, sweeping corners and confidecne-building jumps.

There is plenty of room for camping but it is currently a dry facility with no hookups.

As a common sense rule of thumb, please do not try to jump obstacles that are beyond your skill level. Please use good judgment. And most importantly -- have fun!
