JT Racing has been doing MX gear for decades! By the mid-‘70s, JT Racing’s growth mirrored that of the sport of motocross itself – meteoric. JT Racing offered all manner of innovative and increasingly stylish MX gear, including gloves, pants, goggles, jerseys, face guards, air filters, gear bags, chest protectors, shoulder pads, casual wear and posters. It’d also signed some of the world’s fastest racers to wear its gear, including 500cc World Champion Heikki Mikkola, USGP winner Gerrit Wolsink and 125cc National Champion Marty Smith. Now, race fans and enthusiasts could not only cheer on their favorite riders, but wear the same gear their heroes wore.
The trend continued well into the ’80s – true glory years for JT Racing. In 1980, Chuck Sun won the 500cc national title. In ’81, Team USA won its first of 13 successive MX des Nations titles, the entire team – Laporte, Sun, Hansen and O’Mara – outfitted in JT gear. In ’82, LaPorte won the 250cc world championship, with Hansen taking the 250cc outdoor and Supercross titles. In ’83, JT introduced the revolutionary V2000 and V500 chest protectors, which Bailey wore en route to the 1983 Supercross and 250cc outdoor title. Bailey continued his assault on the 500cc national championship in ’84, winning it outright while wearing JT’s radical new ALS-1 helmet.
Innovation. Style. Champions. The combination had worked flawlessly for nearly three decades, and had transformed JT Racing into the world’s dominant motocross gear company. But things change, and in 2001, John and Rita Gregory sold their esteemed company and retired, sending the JT Racing motocross brand into hibernation for a decade. “When I left JT Racing to work for ESPN in the mid -90s,” remembers David Bailey, who’d been a designer there after his career-ending crash in ’87, “I sort of thought the brand would soon be dead and buried- which it was for a long time. The latter 1990s weren’t kind to JT’s motocross efforts. But it seems you can’t keep a good company down. This brand is strong, and it still resonates.” Time for the next chapter in the JT Racing legacy- While wearing JT’s radical new ALS-1 helmet.
