Arguably the hottest property of FMX at the moment, Spain‰Ûªs Maikel Melero will make his much-anticipated Australian debut straight off the back of successive FIM ‰Û÷Night of Jumps‰Ûª victories.
Adding to the international star-power will be Czech Republic brothers, Libor and Filip Podmol. Libor has been a prominent figure in the world of FMX over the past decade, and is set to bring the form that carried him to multiple FIM world freestyle wins to the AFMXGP.
France‰Ûªs David Rinaldo will also compete, along with Japanese youngster Daichi Ehara and New Zealand veteran Nick Franklin.
Leading the Australian FMX contingent that is set to counter act the international assault will be 2016 revelation, Ryan Brown. Brown will be carrying strong momentum into the AFMXGP, with a victory at the illustrious Red Bull Farm Jam a month ago. Joining Brown will be Jake Smith and Tom Robinson.
A major drawcard for the AFMXGP will be the Best Whip contest, as a number of Australia‰Ûªs best supercross racers will go head to head with multiple FMX athletes to settle the age-old argument as to who has the better whip.
Leading the charge for the supercross talent will be crowd favourite, Josh Cachia. Following a lengthy hiatus from any form of competition whatsoever, Cachia will appear at the AFMXGP competition and represent the racers during the Best Whip contest.
Australian ex-factory supercross racer Cheyne Boyd will also join the line up, having been a prominent figure on the Best Whip front since his retirement from supercross.
