The SuperMotocross World Championship unifies the unique elements of both the Supercross and Pro Motocross seasons—athletes, race teams, sponsors, organizers, and most importantly the fans–and combines the best of both forms of racing: the profound technical skill and precision needed to excel in Supercross, and the sheer speed and endurance required for success in Pro Motocross.
What is The SuperMotocross World Championship?
What can fans expect?
This new form of racing is defined by the world’s most challenging tracks—designed to test athletes both physically and mentally. Race teams and manufacturers will be faced with the new challenge of finding the right balance in their bike and suspension set ups best suited for combined stadium and outdoor track elements. Fans’ perceptions will be challenged as they see the world’s best racers compete on a track requiring a new, combined skill set to win.
How is the season structured?
The combined 31-event season includes 17 Supercross rounds (January 7 – May 13), 11 Pro Motocross rounds (May 27 – August 26), 2 SuperMotocross Playoff rounds (September 9 & 16) and the SuperMotocross World Championship Final (September 23).
How does the points system work?
Both Supercross and Pro Motocross will continue to crown individual champions for their respective series, meaning points will be scored independently within each championship. A combined points tally will also be accrued throughout both series, from which the top 20 point earners each from the 450cc and 250cc divisions over the course of the first 28 races of the season will automatically qualify and be seeded into the SuperMotocross World Championship.
How will the World Champion be crowned?
The SuperMotocross World Championship unifies Supercross and Pro Motocross with a unique playoff format that seeds the top 22 racers in combined points from both championships, for one final contest. Make it into the playoffs and it’s anybody’s race.
Who qualifies for the playoff rounds?
The top 20 point scorers from Supercross and Pro Motocross in the 450 and 250 divisions, respectively, will automatically qualify for the SuperMotocross World Championship. Riders who finish from 21st to 30th in combined points will compete for the final two positions of the 22-rider field in a Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) race at each of the three playoff rounds. Additionally, any racer outside the top 30 in combined points who won a Supercross Main Event or Pro Motocross Overall will also be eligible to compete in the LCQ race for the 21st and 22nd position. All racers outside the top 20 in combined points will begin the playoff rounds with zero points.
What is the race format?
The SuperMotocross World Championship will operate under a two-moto format for both the 450 and 250 divisions. Each moto will be 20 minutes, plus one lap, in which Olympic scoring will determine an overall finishing position for each round. Championship points will be awarded in accordance to each finishing order.
What is on the line to become a SuperMotocross World Champion?
A season-long, history-making purse of $10 million will encompass the entire 31-race season, where $5.5 million will be on the line for the playoff rounds of the SuperMotocross World Championship. A record $1 million will be awarded to the 450cc division champion and $500,000 for the 250cc division champion. It’s the most prize money in the history of off-road motorcycle racing.
What do all those abbreviations stand for?
This type of motorcycle racing carries several abbreviations. “SX” is widely used to represent the sport of supercross, “MX” for motocross, “SMX” for SuperMotocross. The two racing classes are known as the 450 Class and the 250 Class, which references the displacement (engine size) of the motorcycles. The 450 Class is considered the premier racing class, while the 250 Class showcases the stars of tomorrow.
What’s the difference between Monster Energy Supercross and Pro Motocross?
Monster Energy AMA Supercross requires technical precision, consistency and athleticism to compete on purpose-built, man-made tracks constructed inside stadiums. It takes place in the winter months and often in enclosed venues, which helps minimize the impact of cold temperatures, rain, and snow during the harshest season of the year. AMA Pro Motocross is run on permanent, natural-terrain tracks that showcase the all-out speed and endurance of the athletes. It takes place during the summer months, where racers could be exposed to extreme elements like high temperatures and rain storms. The world-class competitors of Monster Energy Supercross and Pro Motocross comprise an international pool of talent and are often seen as some of the most supremely fit athletes on the planet with a unique physical makeup that allows them to stand alone in the sporting world.
