Z klasą na motorze. Społeczne i kulturowe znaczenie motocrossu. Studium przypadku torów w Opinie i Ornecie
Languages of publication
In this article I characterize two motocross tracks, using the studies conducted in March and May 2015 in Orneta and the surrounding villages in the Lidzbark County. First, I make an attempt to inform the readers about circumstances of the research and specifics of the area. Then, I describe methodology and theoretical assumptions with a particular focus on Pierre Bourdieu’s social classes concept, which is key for this article. On the basis of the collected material, I define what motocross is and who are the people practicing it. Further, I present the history of tracks, primarily focusing on organizational transformations and consequences of these transformations. My intention is to demonstrate that cultural participation can take various forms, and to prove that motocross riding is also a cultural practice.
