The world’s best Arenacross and Freestyle Motocross riders will descend upon The Fly DSA Arena for the final two-date round of the 2019 Arenacross Tour.
With its killer mix of all-action racing and gravity-defying Freestyle Motocross, set to a pumping soundtrack and laser show, this is a non-stop, three-hour white-knuckle ride.
The Arenacross Tour – the UK’s fastest-growing indoor Motocross race contest – takes the spectacular elements of outdoor racing on to purpose-built indoor jump-infested dirt tracks.
Six thousand tonnes of dirt will be trucked into the venue creating one of the most extreme tracks the UK has ever seen as Sheffield plays host to the final round.
The Freestyle Motocross showcase takes place 40 feet above the track with riders hitting purpose-built ramps and then attempting to out-do each other as they whip and back-flip 100kg motorcycles in an amazing display of aerial gymnastics.
Once considered MX mavericks, freestylers are now highly-paid sporting stars who compete in year-round world tour events such as the X Games.
Arenacross new-signing, multiple French Supercross champ, Greg Aranda, will take the prime Pro rider slot within the Team Green Kawasaki camp.
He will be hoping to snatch the AX Pro title from compatriot Cedric Soubeyras of FRO Systems; a prospect made all the sweeter by the fact that the two French riders are massively competitive, like-minded in their no-holds-barred approach to racing and determined to be the best.
Other big names taking part are set to include multi Aussie champ and former US supercross top runner Dan Reardon, hree-time Arenacross Pro winner Thomas Ramette (SR75 Suzuki), Fabien Izoird (Shocktech Kawasaki), the first-ever Arenacross Pro titleholder Adam Chatfield (Wooldridge Demolition) and German Supercross Champion Nick Thury,Two Brits complete the Team Green Pro grid with AX stalwart Jack Brunell on a KX450, and current Pro Lites champ Joe Clayton, eager to retain his crown, but looking like he’s got quite a battle on his hands.
The Arenacross Tour – a six-round, three-venue championship - starts at The SSE Arena, Belfast, on January 18 and 19, before moving to The Genting Arena, Birmingham, on February 1 and 2.
It has made another original move by becoming the country’s first off-road race series to secure a betting partner.
