While there are popular domestic championships across Europe and standalone events in cities such as Paris, France, and Herning, Denmark, the World Supercross Championship has historically taken place in the United States.
However, in 2022 a new era of World Supercross Championship finally goes global and will pit the best riders on the planet against each other in stadiums across the globe, including the likes of championship favourite and international superstar Ken Roczen, Cole Seely, Justin Brayton and 40 of the world’s best athletes. And with the UK the birthplace of motocross racing, having the first round of the championship take place in Britain is a fitting appreciation of the sport’s history.
Current US champion and former World Supercross Champion, Eli Tomac, will also make a wildcard appearance at the event, adding to the star-studded lineup. His inclusion, alongside archrival Ken Roczen, will give fans the chance to watch the pair reignite their rivalry and do battle head-to-head.
