Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, will bring the world’s premier off-road motorcycle championship series to Anaheim on Saturday, January 7, 2017 for the annual debut race of the 2017 season (followed by a second Anaheim racing event scheduled for Saturday, January 21st). This 17-race battle to crown a champion features the ultimate battle of man and machine, highlighted by a star-studded international field of competitors chasing the sport’s most sought after trophy. For two action-packed events, fans throughout the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area will have the chance to watch reigning back-to-back champion Ryan Dungey in his quest to claim a third straight title, fighting to fend off his fiercest rivals inside Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
For more than 40 years Monster Energy Supercross has thrilled audiences of all ages, continually positioned as one of the world’s fastest growing sports. Nearly one million fans fill the seats of North America’s most well known stadiums annually, while millions more from across the globe watch the action unfold via international live streams and an exclusive broadcast partnership with FOX Sports. Spectators are captivated by the spectacle of Monster Energy Supercross, which serves as the preeminent showcase of these uniquely talented and fearless world-class athletes doing battle in the most physically and mentally demanding sport on the planet. Competitors from at least nine different countries have chased their supercross dream onto U.S. soil for 2017, dedicating their lives to the pursuit of victory by putting in countless hours both in the gym and on the motorcycle for the chance to be called the best in the world.
Monster Energy Supercross is part aerial excitement and part high-speed chase, with riders launching 225-pound motorcycles upwards of 30 feet in the air at heart-pounding speeds. Competitors toe the line of control and chaos, with All-American superstar Dungey destined to continue his gripping rivalry with German sensation Ken Roczen, while hotshot Eli Tomac looms just behind them in his continued ascension to the top. In this winner-take-all environment, only one rider will be rewarded for pushing his body and his bike to the absolute limit, basking in the glory of a championship.
At the pre-race Monster Energy Pit Party fans are fully immersed into the world of Monster Energy Supercross, given unprecedented access to the athletes, teams, and supporting sponsors. Annually, more than 350,000 attendees converge at this all-day festival-like, behind-the-scenes complement to the on-track excitement, with exclusive opportunities to meet the riders, see the bikes up close, hang with the Monster Energy Girls, and more. Entry to the Pit Party costs just $10 at the gate – guests can obtain FREE access by recycling an empty can of Monster Energy Drink (valid race event ticket required for entry).
