Deftly tucking her dirty-blond hair inside her helmet and adjusting the goggles that keep her blue eyes safe from debris, Heather Gaul is ready to go racing. Hunched atop her Suzuki four-wheeler, alongside 19 other all-terrain vehicles waiting for the signal to start, the 16-year-old from Douglasville, Pa., can feel the butterflies in her belly. Suddenly, the starting gate drops and the nervousness is gone - replaced by the confidence that comes from six years of competition and the knowledge acquired since her father first plopped her on a four-wheeler at age 4. Rumbling over the dirt track, sliding through the corners and flying over the hills, Gaul is focused on only one thing - the finish line.

Jeremy Lusk, an American freestyle motocross rider, died of head injuries yesterday after crashing while trying to land a backflip in competition. He was 24. Jorge Ramirez, chief of the intensive-care unit at Calderon Hospital in Costa Rica, where Lusk was taken, said the motocross racer suffered severe brain damage and a possible spinal-cord injury. Lusk won a gold medal at the 2008 X Games. He was injured Saturday night when he failed to complete a full rotation while attempting a Hart Attack backflip and slammed headfirst into the dirt.

Last summer at the X Games, skateboarder Matt Dove ripped ESPN and the X Games after he won the best trick final inside the First Union Center. Dove, who won the gold medal only after a protest, wore a T-shirt during the competition that called ESPN the "Extreme $ Profit Network. " He wrote "Who profits?" underneath that. "ESPN does nothing besides make money from this contest," Dove said at the time. "We don't get anything. Look at the prizes, look at the money they're bringing in, look at the people that are here.

During rehabilitation from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, suffered while playing soccer, Haddon Township senior Nicky Cutrera realized she could ride before she could run. Few athletes do motocross as an activity during rehabilitation, but Cutrera has been riding all-terrain vehicles used in motocross for more than a decade. While it might appear dangerous, especially for someone recovering from a knee injury, it is second nature for Cutrera. Anyone who goes to YouTube can see Cutrera and her father, Tom, riding the hills together.

"C'mon, hop on the bike. " Travis Pastrana, 2000 U.S. motocross and supercross champion and undefeated ESPN X Games freestyle titleholder, invites a guest to board his mud-splattered Suzuki 125cc cycle and thunder across the dirt hills in the usually serene woods outside Annapolis. Enticing, but then she remembers that Travis' gift for thrills is matched by his tendency toward injury. Six days later, on July 15, Travis would have a serious wreck at a motocross event in Unadilla, N.Y., and sustain a concussion, his 10th.

As the original hired gun for a drag racing team owned by Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Troy Vincent, Antron Brown hangs out with the movers and shakers of the sports world. But then again, what else would you expect from a guy who does some fast moving and shaking himself, to the tune of 185 mph? Brown, a 23-year-old from Chesterfield, N.J., is in his second year of full-time touring with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). He competes in the Pro Stock Bike class, racing the Vincent-owned Team 23 Suzuki GSXR in the fastest two-wheel class of them all. "I used to drag race bikes myself," said Antron's father Albert Brown, a 47-year-old who accompanies his son to every race and helps fine-tune the team's motorcycles.

UCLA quarterback Ben Olson has a broken foot and will be sidelined for at least 2 months. Olson, whose career has been marked by injuries, broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during practice on Saturday, and X-rays taken yesterday revealed the fracture. He suffered the same injury during spring practice. A decision on whether he will have surgery is expected to be made in a few days. Kevin Craft, a junior-college transfer, and redshirt freshman Chris Forcier are expected to compete for the Bruins' starting job. Patrick Cowan, who took over when Olson was sidelined by injury last season and was set to be the No. 1 quarterback heading into the season, had surgery after hurting his knee in spring practice and will miss the season.

As Cody Elkins revved the motor on his 250cc Suzuki bike, the rear wheel dug into the soft soil and sent a rooster tail of dust billowing in his wake. The cycle surged forward and Elkins began the steep climb up the steel ramp and toward the banners hanging from the rafters. Suddenly, with the rider and bike engaged in an end-over-end flip some 35 feet above the arena floor, Elkins turned his head to the right - the better to catch the gaze of the spectators in the cheap seats.

So just what is a Boom Boom HuckJam, anyway? "We use the term 'huck' to describe jumping in the air," Tony Hawk says. "A jam is a competition. And sometimes we fall down and go boom. " In case you're really old and totally clueless of the significance of being the first human to land a 900 on a vert ramp, Hawk is the brand-name icon of what he and his bone-breaking brethren would like to be known as not "extreme" but "action" sports. With the best-selling video game Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, Hawk is John Madden and Michael Jordan rolled into one 35-year-old action-sports emblem, the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards favorite male athlete for the second year running, who Sports Illustrated estimated earned $10 million last year.

Bill Colihan lifts weights five times a week and often slips out of his office at lunchtime to ride a mountain bike in the nearby Valley Forge park. On days when he can't get to the gym, he pumps iron at home. Colihan, 43, is proud of his lean and muscular physique. But staying fit has nothing to do with vanity and everything to do with his passion: Motocross. Cross-country racing on motorcycles. Fox-hunting on a dirt bike, except instead of chasing a fox, you're chasing the maniac in front of you and trying not to get "roosted" by the mud spewing from his tires.

Every time Angelle Savoie goes for a Sunday ride, she's accompanied by an angel. When you're hurtling headfirst at nearly 200 m.p.h. down a quarter-mile drag strip, it's comforting to believe that you're protected by more than a helmet and a leather racing suit. The three-inch plaster cherub, a gift from a friend when Savoie (pronounced Sav-wah) joined the NHRA's Pro Stock Motorcycle circuit seven years ago, is bolted to the body of the yellow, purple and white Suzuki. The winged passenger stands guard just inside the windscreen - and within whispering distance of the rider's face.
