Go to any national or even amateur MX and look at the bikes before the race. They are spotless. Every weekend! Not washing your your bike so as to I guess prove that you have actually ridden it in the dirt ruins it before it's time on numerous different fronts.
I agree with that 100%. I have found broken frames, cracked cases, and all kinds of problems just by washing a bike after being ridden off road.
