A full riders list for the opening round of the 2015 Australian Supercross Championship is now available on the official series website.

In addition to the full riders list, NRGTV.com.au have also posted a link to their live stream for the season opener, though at this point in time we are awaiting more information from event and series organisers regarding the live stream, including if it is a 100% going ahead and what we can expect to see from the live stream.


UPDATE:
Kevin Williams has let us know this morning, (Thursday the 8th of October) That NRGTV will be at bathurst to steam practice and qualifying. Will update with in further information in a new article as soon as more information comes to hand.

As for the riders list, it looks as though Bathurst is shaping up as a great event with 21 riders currently listed in the SX1 class and 29 in the SX two class, with all support classes also looking to have good numbers with just under 100 riders in total ready to take to the track.
SX1 Class:
1. Matt Moss
3. Adam Monea
4. Cheyne Boyd
5. Kirk Gibbs
7. Jacob Wright
8. Kade Mosig
11. Sam Martin
17. Gavin Faith
18. Aaron Tanti
26. Luke Styke
46. Chris Camilleri
62. Anthony Rodriguez
65. Daniel Mccoy
70. Lawson Bopping
86. Daniel Mcentee
87. Brodie Hartin
96. Kale Makeham
111. Danny Ham
117. Dylan Long
122. Daniel Reardon
141. Joel Newton

The SX1 class is certainly looking strong on paper with three current national champions ready to line up against each other. Last years SX1 Champion Matt Moss and SX2 champion Gavin Faith will in up with 2015 MX Nationals Champion Kirk Gibbs in a show down of current national champions.

Throw in the likes of Adam Monea who finished second in last years championship and Lawson Bopping who finished third along with with, Jacob Wight, Kade Mosig, Sam Martin, , Kale Makeham, Dylan Long, Luke Styke the experienced and former AMA racer Dan Reardon and current AMA Supercross racer Anthony Rodriguez and simply picking who will finish inside the top ten is no easy task.

To make things a little more interesting, Supercross vetrans and former Australian SX front runners, Cheyne Boyd and Danny Ham will be back behind the gate along with known SX specilist Daniel McCoy and 2015 is shaping up to be one tough series to win.

2. Taylor Potter
4. Luke Clout
6. Jay Wilson (Out Injured)
7. Jack Simpson

12. Jed Beaton
13. Jake Williams
14. Geran Stapleton
15. Luke Wilson
17. Caleb Ward
21. James Brown
23. Wade Hunter
28. Jake Vella
30. Joel Wightman
34. Boyd Hocking
44. Brody Cassidy
45. Hayden Melros (Out, Heading Back To The U.S)
49. Jimmy Decots
54. Luke Arbon
57. Jackson Richardson
64. Dylan Wills
71. Tristan Duncan

The SX2 field looks to be wide open in 2015 with a host of riders looking to put their names on the map as Australia's next big name in SX.

Who wide open you ask? With the top six riders from last years championship already ruled out of any chance of winning the title in 2015 it is pretty easy to see why this years title is up for grabs.

2014 Champion Gavin Faith has moved up to the SX1 class, while 2014 runner up Taylor Potter who will run the big number 2 this season, made the annoucement earlier this week that he has taken up a ride in the German Supercross season, all but forfieting his chance to lay claim to the Australian title due to missing a couple of the Australian rounds due to his German commitments.

American Kyle Peters who finished third in last years title is not returning , while Hayden Mellross who finished in fourth position will not make the start line at Bathurst after securing a ride in the United States for the AMA Supercross Championship and jetted back out to the U.S yesterday.

Mellross has confirmed to us that he has signed a deal, though at this point in time can not annouce who he will be riding for.

With Brendan Harrison retiring from racing and Kale Makeham making the move up to the 450, it leaves AMA Supercross regular Jackson Richardson who finished 7th in last years championship as the highest ranked rider from 2014 in contention for this years title!

Another rider who is out of contention before the series starts is 2015 MX Nationals MX2 champion, Jay Wilson who today confirmed he will miss the season opener due to the injury he sustained in the lead up to the MXoN.

One final name missing from the riders list above is Nick Sutherland who is likely to miss the opening two rounds before returning at Wayville.
Who will win the SX2 Championship in 2015
While there are some big names missing there is one huge name in the SX2 riders list, with Josh Cachia listed to be riding for the DPH Yamaha team and is certain to be a title contender when the gates drop. Racing is always more exciting when Cachia is on the line.

Like the SX1 class, the number of potential race and series winners is a long one. The Serco Yamaha pairing of Luke Clout and Jed Beaton, 2014 front runner Luke Arbon, American Jimmy Decotis, Geran Stapleton and 2014 SXD champion Dylan Wills, along with above mentioned Cachia and Richardson, will all be expected to be at the pointy end of the field.

Add to that list experienced campaigner Lewis Woods who returns to the SX2 class, the standout privateer of the MX Nationals Wade Hunter, first time Supercross racers Caleb Ward and Kyle Webster, KTM's Jack Simpson and the super talented Nathan Crawford and we are set to see a battle royale in the lites bike class.

As always expect someone to come out of left field and make a name for themselves in the 250F class, someone of the likes of Jake Vella, Tomas Ravenhorst or the Veteran Tim Vare could certainly surprise.
