The name pit bike originated from the use of a Honda Z50. The ride around the pit areas of dirt bike races and race events across the United States. The fairly cheap price and the mobility of these bikes made them easy to use. When at racing events. Popular dirt bike movies like the 2001 Crusty Demons of Dirt 3 show. How these small motorcycles can be used to do things other than just riding back and forth in the pits. A part of this movie shows people taking huge bicycle jumps on a Z50 in someone’s back yard.

Motocross was first evolved in the U.K. from motorcycle trials competitions. Such as the Auto-Cycle Clubs's first quarterly trial in 1909 and the Scottish Six Days Trial that began in 1912. When delicate balancing and strict scoring of trials were dispensed with in favour of a race to be the fastest rider to the finish. It was called scrambles, said to have originated in the phrase, "a rare old scramble" describing one such early race.Originally known as scrambles racing in the United Kingdom, as the sport grew in popularity, the competitions became known internationally as motocross racing, by combining the French word for motorcycle,motocyclette, or moto for short.
