Michael Jordan is obviously known best for his majestic rule of the NBA court, but he also has a number of hobbies and projects on the side – some of which may not be as well-known as the others. Jordan started Michael Jordan Motorsports in 2004, a professional motorcycle racing team that is gaining steam in the circuit, building on its first ever victory earlier this year. Sneakerheads will easily equate Motorsports to the impeccable white-and-black colorways of the Air Jordan VI and Six Rings found on the MJM motorcycles. There’s no doubt that Jordan’s level of winning is matched only by his competitive fervor, but even he describes his experience going 170+ mph on a straight-away as “scared s***less”. You can catch an in-depth report of Michael Jordan and his Motorsports team on ESPN’s E:60 program on May 4th. via Sole Collector.
