Supercross facilities in Queensland and Victoria will open their gates for coaching and training ahead of the upcoming Australian Supercross Championship, allowing amateur and professional riders to learn and practice the discipline.

Increasing access to practice tracks and professional supercross coaching has been a major focus for the championship, and series organisers believe this is a crucial step towards the overall goal of increased participation and the development of young riders in the future.

“Access to safe practice facilities and professional coaching has been the number one limiting factor for Australian supercross riders and their development, for as long as I can remember,” said AUS SX Holding’s Adam Bailey.

“In the past, riders that do not have their own private track and property or access to one, have often either tried to compete underprepared or just decided not to take the risk to do Supercross competition. We’re committed to making that transition to competing in the Australian Supercross Championship, more accessible and safer, for all Aussie riders now and into the future.

Krusics Ride Park in Victoria will open the gates to their private supercross tracks on 7-8 September, granting riders of all skill levels the opportunity to attempt supercross for the first time or hone their skills in preparation for the season ahead.

Krusics has two tracks on offer – one for intermediate riders with tamed down jumps and tabletops and another full-blown pro-level track – both professionally prepared for the weekend.

Former supercross champion Cameron Taylor (Y-AIM) will be offering coaching to all skill levels over the weekend and on both tracks to ensure there’s the opportunity to learn regardless of current skill level.

For riders in the south east Queensland region, Nathan Crawford (00 Standards Elite Rider Training) is holding a coaching and endorsement clinic also on Saturday, 7 September, on a private Supercross track near Toowoomba. For more information, visit www.australiansupercross.com.au.
