Title contender feeling the increased recognition of Australian motocross.
Canberra MX1 winner Luke Clout has praised the all-new Penrite ProMX Championship following the first two rounds, the title contender referencing his time in the US last year when explaining how impressed he is with the Motorcycling Australia-operated series.
The ProMX championship has gone from strength to strength in just its maiden season, securing a TV and live stream package, along with attracting a large fan attendance, which was on display at the packed Canberra round earlier this month.
The CDR Yamaha Monster Energy rider expressed his satisfaction in being part of the growing future of the sport in Australia, explaining he feels the increased recognition motocross is currently getting.
“Obviously, you know, I was in the US last year and with how high the sport is over there, to be back here and to see how crazy elevated this is in its first year is so good,” Clout told MotoOnline.com.au.
“We’re only at round two, so to see the crowd and how good of a job MA are doing, having it on TV as well, it makes you feel like you’re actually in a bit of a recognised sport and I think it should be. This is one of the best sports in the world and I’m all for it to see things get bigger in the future – I’m happy to be a part of it.”
The eight-round national championship heads to Gillman in South Australia for the third stop of the series, scheduled on 30 May.
