Motocross is a blast to watch, with its high-flying antics, rad slides and mounds upon mounds of dirt flung in the air. Yet I discovered a way to improve it yesterday: by running the whole series on cute little Vespas instead.

Meet Vespacross, a too-delightful form of motorsport run in Italy and other Vespa-loving countries around the world.


There’s just something delightful about seeing Vespas fly through the air that I wish I would see more often, if we’re honest.

This is no single-season, dirt-track-only motorsport, either. They even run on the ice!
