There’s No Drug Like Adrenaline For Motorcross Champion

ENCINITAS, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Supercross biker Jeremy McGrath is planning to retire in October and while he may not miss the training sessions, he says he certainly will miss the adrenaline rush.

The world champion racer will be putting on his racing helmet for the last time at his very own Jeremy McGrath Invitational which will take place October 6-7 in Carson, California.

He says it will be hard to top the rush he gets from racing, which he describes this way: “Take the biggest roller coaster in the world and you don’t even come close to what it feels like – the adrenaline, you just can’t replace it.”

McGrath may get a drug-like buzz from racing but says he doesn’t know of any Supercross guys who use actual drugs before a contest.

Plus, he says everyone stays away from steroids because they “make you all big, buff and swollen” in a sport that relies heavily on agility and speed.

As he puts it, “You gotta keep the blood flowing. The guy’s are less physical and more training fanatics. It’s not about muscle it’s about heart and talent.”

The Jeremy McGrath Invitational will air October 22 on NBC.
