Headlining the awards that will be handed out that evening are the coveted Edison Dye Motocross Cup, awarded to the championship-winning team of the 450 Class, and the Gary Jones Motocross Cup, given to the team behind the champion of the 250 Class. Additionally, the Women’s Motocross Cup will be presented to the team that captures the WMX Class title.
All three of the respective 2010 class champions will have their chance in the spotlight, receiving their own trophy and distinguished medal commemorating their achievement and serving as the ideal complement to the exclusive Number One plates that will adorn their bikes the following season. MX Sports Pro Racing will also recognize the 2010 Sportsman of the Year, which is given to the rider that exhibited the determination and class often identified with the most renowned names in the sport, as well as handing out Rookie of the Year accolades to the top first-year rider in each class.
