Williams Event Management (WEM) has confirmed that SPEED will televise the 10th and final round of the 2014 Monster Energy MX Nationals, with an extensive schedule to commence this weekend.

Coolum Pines Motocross Track was home to an outstanding last round of action that saw Matt Moss, Luke Clout and Egan Mastin take out the MX1, M2 and MXD championships respectively.

And you can re-live all the action at home, with the following television schedule announced today:
– Saturday, 27 September, 4:45pm
– Sunday, 28 September, 2:00am
– Monday, 29 September, 11:30am
– Wednesday, 1October, 10:00pm

The first screening on Saturday, 27 September, will be televised immediately before the live coverage of the Aragon MotoGP round in Spain.

Its the first time since 2011 that an MX Nationals round has featured on television. The news comes as part of a reinvigorated strategy to place the MX Nationals on national television for 2015, which was first uncovered on earlier this year.

On Friday WEM confirmed it is structuring next year’s series and formats around a broadcast-friendly structure, with the possibility of fulltime television coverage continuing to increase into the off-season.
