The top pocket of my gear bag is for snacks. Travelling to far away places and not knowing what you will eat can make a race weekend very long and difficult. I learned this the hard way when I first started travelling 10 years ago so nowadays I always pack energy bars, a bag of trail mix and a couple small protein snacks to give me some energy in case the local cuisine only serves crickets and fried lizard (It happened before).
Lastly I always bring a couple posters and stickers from my great sponsors. For this trip to India Top 1 Synthetics hooked me up with some really cool key rings that I will be handing out over the race weekend.
My carry on luggage has all my casual clothing, underwear, deodorant and a tooth brush. It’s always nice to have your every day clothes with you when you land. There is nothing worse than finding out that your luggage didn’t make it after you’ve been travelling for 24 plus hours so it is good to know you will have some clothes to wear when you get to the hotel.
My backpack carries my laptop, my camera, phone chargers, my note pad and a sweatshirt in case it gets cold on the flight.
That’s it. That is my packing list for next weekends race in India. I’m excited to go see a new country that I haven’t been to yet and I’m looking forward to meet many new Motocross enthusiasts over there.
