Let’s get ready for motocross!
The FIM World Motocross Championships started Easter weekend in Holland. They have a 16 race series that takes place all over the world, eventually crowning a new champion in the MX1 class, and the MX2 class. Riders like Tony Cairoli, Gautier Paulin, Christophe Pourcel, Clement Desalle and more in the MX1 class. And Jeffrey Herlings, Tommy Searle, Jordi Tixier, Americans Zach Osborne & Michael Leib, and more in the MX2 class.
The AMA National MX Championships start Saturday May 19 near Sacramento, California. It’s a 12 race series that takes place all over the USA. Riders like Ryan Dungey, James Stewart, Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac, Ken Roczen, Marvin Musquin and many more will race for the “Motocross” championship, and the “Lites” championship.
Supercross.com has covered both the AMA National Motocross Series, and the FIM World MX GP since 1996. (BTW, the AMA National Motocross Champions in 1996? Steve Lamson won the 125 class, and Jeff Emig won the 250 class. In World MX – Sebastien Tortelli won the 125 / MX2 championship, and Stefan Everts was the 250 / MX1 champion.)
Where to find this coverage of MX? Of course you’ll see the main features right on the home page of the site ( http://www.supercross.com )
The new Supercross.com iPhone app, which should be released in the next few weeks, will allow you to access the same info as the Supercross.com website.
In addition, Supercross.com publishes results and points for the Women’s AMA National Motocross Championship, and the Women’s FIM World MX Championship.
You might notice we mentioned 29 ‘big motocrosses’. And 16 and 12 only equal 28. The final big motocross of the year? The prestigious MX of Nations, this year in Lommel, Belgium, where Team USA is the defending champion. (Supercross.com will be there too.)
We hope you enjoy our motocross coverage in 2012, and beyond!

p.s. Recently there has been articles published on other media outlets, and on audio web casts, about Supercross.com. It’s not in our character to be confrontational. However, what was published and communicated not only is not true, it is libelous, and slanderous. Only one media outlet had the courtesy professionalism to contact Supercross.com directly. And once armed with the facts – that media outlet published truthfully and correctly.
The others have shown a lack of professionalism, journalism, and common sense.
