WHAT IS SUPERCROSS?
Supercross is the ultimate combination of both man and machine, with riders having to be in peak condition to not only prevent physical exhaustion, but most importantly, mental fatigue.
With an incredibly small margin for error, riders must navigate the various obstacles on a Supercross track to extreme precision, lap after lap, round after round, in order to prevent the nasty consequences the sport can provide.
– 10-12 riders start alongside each other.
– Riders race between 5 and 20 laps.
– Each lap is approximately between 30 & 50 seconds.
– The circuit is temporary & man made, with multiple unique obstacles.
– 4000 tonnes of dirt (120 truck loads) shaped and combined with steel ramps.
– Two divisions – the 250cc class and the 450cc class, compete at the AUS-X Open.
KEYS TO SUPERCROSS:
Supercross is generally comprised into four elements; the start, rhythm lane (s), whoops & the competition. The start is pivotal; each rider begins on a level playing field – so it’s a time where you can essentially pass the entire field at once, as soon as the gate drops.
Whoops are a series of small bumps, that require 100% commitment & carefully practiced technique. Blitzing across the top of each obstacle and not letting either wheel drop in the gaps is crucial.
For the rhythm lanes, dead eye precision and ultimate commitment is required to nail the fastest, yet most dangerous combination.
Combine the above whilst going bar to bar with 11 other riders all jostling for position, in front of 25,000+ screaming fans, and you have the incredibly exciting sport of Supercross.
