With the opening two rounds of The 2020 Arenacross Tour just a few days away, there’s never been a more stacked-out, talented line up of champions. It’s all to play for when the gates finally drop in Belfast this week!
With the Pro Class stacked with every winner of the Arenacross series since its inception eight years ago, the all-new riders lining up for round one could see a completely new winner once crowned in the UK’s capital city in February.
New riders consist of Paris-Bercy Lille Supercross Lites class winner Brian Hsu taking over the championship winning seat from Cedric Soubeyras at Team FRO Systems, Nico Dercourt (France) of SR75 Suzuki Racing and youngster Brock Papi (USA) who will replace 2019 runner up in the series, Greg Aranda due to injury for Team Green Kawasaki.
A huge welcome back also goes to triple champ Thomas Ramette (Offset CBD Yamaha), 2018 runner up and the ever talented Australian, Dan Reardon (Team FRO Systems Yamaha) and 2016 runner up, Italy’s flamboyant Angelo Pellegrini (RFX Honda).
With eight nations competing in the 2020 Tour, fans will be able to witness World Class indoor Motocross at each round from the following all-star line up of riders:
