A number of the world’s top supercross racers return to the Europe’s largest indoor supercross at the Monster Energy International Geneva Supercross this weekend.

Held at the Palexpo at Geneva Airport, two nights of premier supercross action is scheduled for 2-3 December and will feature a number of U.S. guests.

Defending Monster Energy Geneva Supercross Super Final Champion Justin Brayton will make his European race debut aboard his factory Honda.

Current Monster Energy AMA Supercross West Coast Lites Champion Broc Tickle will also be on hand to race his first European supercross race for Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki.

Other Americans confirmed include recently crowned King of Bercy Kyle Chisholm, who will make his first appearance for Jeff Ward Racing Kawasaki, plus Mike Alessi and Matt Goerke.

World Motocross contender Tommy Searle will make his return to supercross in the Lites for Monster Energy Kawasaki.

New for 2011 will be a split between the 250 and 450 classes, with the top guys from each class meeting in the Super Final to decide the King of Geneva.

Founded in 1988 and represented by North American associate producer Eric Peronnard, the Monster Energy-backed Geneva Supercross has over the years been a must stop for the top racers on the American AMA Supercross tour.

Names like McGrath, Stanton, Lechien, Cooper and Brown are among the great American names that have faced-off against Europe/the World’s greats like Bayle, Vuillemin, Langston, Albertyn and Pichon.
