After the void left by the Superbowl, 35 editions intensely experienced and felt by all the fans, Turin grabs the baton dropped by Genoa, hosting the event in the modern structure of the Pala Alpitour. But the show will return to the “origins”: Supercross & Freestyle MX in a single adrenaline evening, with an exceptional ambassador, Mr. Supercross, Ricky Carmichael, making his debut in Italy.
RC, who loved the event from the beginning, will guide and challenge the other Americans riders in the exciting fight for the Pole Position and the ONE VS ONE challenge. But not only that, he will also participate in the Whip Freestyle contest!
Some of the big stars of the SX USA championship will be on track in Turin to conquer the scepter of “KING of ITALY”. Among these Cole Seely, Honda HRC official rider, genius and unruliness, heart and grit, certainly needs no introduction, but above all it is a big news for the Italian public: despite being the fastest on track, in Geneva he missed the possibility of victory for some mistakes in the Main Event, and certainly will want to redo in Piedmont.
Those who did not do anything wrong in Switzerland was Justin Brayton, from where he came out the winner, he will arrive very heavily in Turin and will certainly not want to miss the victory of the Italian Supercross.
Even from Malcom Stewart, James’ younger brother, it is reasonable to expect a win: very spectacular and very talented rider, he is certainly not one who likes to stay behind, and consequently in Turin he will also want to fight for the victory.
At the start also the young American Austin Rooth, winner of a Main Event at EICMA, reads the list of the best 10 young American riders for Supercross.
The European grading list is composed of only “specialists”, primarily French, then English and Italian, among which Angelo Pellegrini stands out, who will return directly from the United States where he is in full training for the imminent start of the 2019 Championship.
