Legendary supercross commentator Larry Super Mouth Huffman will bring fans to their feet as racers will vie for an enormous cash purse. With the support of industry leading sponsors Subaru, odi, Kenda, IceToolz, THE, Mountain Bike Action and TLD, we’re bringing the exciting, fast paced world of 4-Cross racing to an indoor arena for the first time ever.
“It’s an excellent opportunity to bring the exciting world of 4-Cross racing to the masses,” said Don Jackson. “We can give the public a chance to watch this breathtaking sport without the need to drive hours away from the city.”
Held in a Speedway Format, racers will battle down a spectacular man-made 4-Cross course built specifically this indoor arena–huge scaffolding, truckloads of dirt an an intense racing track right in front of a stadium full of seats. Southridge USA brings the mountain inside!
The Speedway Format pits each one of the 20 top riders against one another at least once throughout the night. There are no team tactics…No early knockouts…Only the best will win!
