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.
