Junior racing returns to Australian Supercross Championship in 2019
Junior racing returns in strength to the Australian Supercross Championship in 2019 with the announcement of three junior categories to run alongside the hotly contested SX1 and SX2 championships.

The Australian Supercross Championship has announced today that the Junior Lites (13yrs - Under 16yrs) and Junior 85 (12 - Under 16) will all run in 2019 alongside the senior classes this year.

The news comes much to the delight of aspiring young Supercross fans and competitors alike, also to the sport‰Ûªs governing body and Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle who says the development of grassroots and junior racing is the pathway to unearthing Australia‰Ûªs next Supercross World Champion.

‰ÛÏOff-road motorcycle racing is on the rise in Australia and we‰Ûªre delighted to once again see a range of junior classes on-track supporting the Australian Supercross Championship,‰Û

2019 junior classes are official Australian Championships held across three nationals rounds in each class, with the championship winner taking the #1 red plate into the 2020 season.

Championship organisers have also touted aspirations to host practice days and coaching opportunities specific to Supercross for all skill levels in 2019 to aid the development of junior Supercross riders, to make for a safe and prosperous transition from Motocross to Supercross.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªre extremely committed to providing a solid platform for the development of future Supercross stars, which is a huge focus for us. There‰Ûªs no doubt we have the talent in this country - we just need to provide the opportunity for these kids to build their experience and show what they can do on the race track and to gain valuable experience before their senior career,‰Û
