Motocross champ riding through Cairo

Cairo- Motocross rider Grant Langston won the world championship in 2000 and a national title in 2003.

     He spent today at the Georgia Practice Facility in Cairo, preparing for a race this Friday in Daytona, Florida. There's no doubt he's earned his titles. Langston has been riding since he was a child. "Racing is just one of those things that's in your blood. And what's really neat is at the supercross race, we get to race in front of 60, 70 thousand people, a lot of action. That's what they come there for, to see some good racing," he says.

     Langston took first place at an event last week in Saint Louis. He's leading in points in the supercross championship.
