Fox Racing first opened for business in 1974, when Geoff Fox, a Ph. D. who taught physics at the University of Santa Clara, launched Moto-X Fox, a tiny distribution business for European motocross parts and accessories in a 1,500-square foot building in Campbell, California. Within two years, Moto-X Fox was manufacturing high-performance suspension and engine components for racers looking for an on-track advantage.
But by 1977 Geoff was determined to show the American motocross public that his products were superior to those of the competition. He also created his own privately-owned professional motocross team, Team Moto-X Fox. While going up against the might of the Japanese factory teams, Team Moto-X Fox riders became the top non-factory riders in the series in the highly-competitive AMA 125cc National Championship series, but achieving Geoff's goal of proving that his handmade parts were the best that money could buy.
During the series, Team Moto-X Fox riders wore bright red, yellow and orange race outfits. Handmade by Fox, the clothing became an instant hit with the fans and interested enthusiasts started calling the Fox shop in Campbell inquiring about its availability.
Today, remains a family owned and operated business. The family has held steadfast to Geoff Fox's original goal of making the best motocross products money can buy. Constant research, development, and fine-tuning goes into Fox race apparel and performance gear.
