Abstract

Motorcycle scrambling is a potentially hazardous sport for children although the total numbers involved are far less than for many other recreational and sporting activities. The injuries sustained tend to be more serious than for many other activities and there is around 1 injury for every 100–200 races. Serambling accidents may be reduced by restricting the age of competitors to over 12 years, by adequate training, correct preparation and maintenance of the machine and correct use of suitable safety equipment. The organisation and control of race meetings is important and adequate first aid facilities must be provided with at least one person readily available who is fully trained in basic resuscitation techniques.
