Supercross TV viewing records

AMA Supercross, second in motor sports popularity in the USA only to NASCAR, announced a record for the most television viewers in a single season – fifteen million fans, that tuned to the broadcasts on ESPN2 & ABC Sports.



Says Mike Weber, executive vice president of Clear Channel Entertainment Motor Sports. “All fans, riders, and sponsors can be comforted by knowing the future of AMA Supercross not only lies in the spectacular live events, but also in the ever-growing television package.”

Supermoto? Supermoto?



What is Supermoto? In simple terms, Supermoto is a combination of motocross, dirt track, and road racing.



KTM is helping introduce Supermoto to United States motor sports fans. KTM invited members of the media to Cajon Speedway in El Cajon, California to actually ride Supermoto machines on a sample Supermoto track.



A typical Supermoto track will have road racing sections, jumps, dirt, and sometimes more. The bikes are a cross between dirt machines and road machines.



KTM’s goal today was to have the media understand Supermoto better, get excited about it, and let everyone in the United States know about the upcoming race in Las Vegas. (See schedule below.)



KTM is a driving force behind Supermoto coming to America … and why not? KTM has the perfect machines for it, The Duke (a Supermoto-based street bike) and the Supermoto LC4 (more dirt-oriented like a dual-sport).



Supermoto is very popular in Europe, with almost every country having a National Championship series. It’s just catching on here in the United States.





2002 FIM Supermoto World Championship Calendar:



  • July 14 – Belgium – Namur
  • July 28 – Netherlands – Valkenswaard
  • August 22 – France – TBA
  • October 13 – Austria – Karntenring
  • October 20 – Italy – MC Boves
  • Nov. 3 – USA – Las Vegas Motor Speedway
  • Nov. 10 – Australia – Broadford
  • Nov. 17 – New Zealand – Palmerston North

Point X Camp: Largest extreme sports camp in the western US set to open

The boys (and girls) who brought you the Mini Warriors Video Series and Travis Pastrana’s Revelation 199 are about to open Point X Camp. After years of planning and preparation, the camp will open later this month (June 2002).





Point X Camp will provide the most extensive action sports training and camping facility in the western United States. Their goal is to give every camper the experience of a lifetime, with the very best trainers and camp counselors in the action sports industry.





Point X Camp’s facilities are spread out among 260 acres in southern California. They have 75,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor skate parks, acres of BMX dirt trails & race tracks, vert ramps and bowl sections.





The skate park facilities have been designed and constructed by director John Tyson of Vertical Production Industries and his crew. (They design and build the X-Games courses, various mobile tours and many skate parks around the world.) The full-fledged motocross and supercross tracks are set to open in the fall.





In addition to BMX racing, BMX downhill, BMX freestyle, inline skating, street and vert skate boarding, and motocross, you can rope-swing off the back of the clover bowl, enjoy the water trampolines, kayaks, paddle boats and swimming.





We’ll have more info as the camp gets closer to it’s Grand Opening. Also, you may phone them directly at 1 888 4 POINTX
