Will we see ATVs and motorcycles competing on the same track someday?

In our continued attempt to dispel the myth that ATVs are little more than couches or motorcycles with training wheels, we’ve unearthed this epic video of ATV Motocross pro Joel Hetrick burning laps against HCR Racing’s Ken Roczen at the famous Red Bud MX track.
