In this video of Supercross Life, privateer journeymen Jackson Richardson and Jesse Dobson outline the struggles of a self-funded effort, along with experiencing the inevitable ups and downs that come with the sport of supercross.
The upcoming Auckland event represents the fourth round of five in the Australian Supercross Championships and could be pivotal in many riders’ campaigns.
A highly-touted amateur, Dobson has been on the cusp of securing factory support for the past few years, however just hasn’t quite demonstrated the consistent results required for factory support.
Far North Queensland native Richardson is a two-time Australian Supercross Champion in the SX2 class, however a lack of rides available led the likeable character to put together his own deal for supercross.
Both athletes demonstrate the gladiator traits required to be one of the best supercross riders in the country, and take fans on board as they embark on their 2019 Australian Supercross assault.
The record-breaking success of the 2018 event was unprecedented, with a crowd of more than 22,500 fans attending Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium, making it the biggest international supercross event to ever take place on Kiwi soil.
Featuring the very best international athletes, as well as New Zealand and Australia’s best, for the second year running in New Zealand and Australia, the S-X Open FIM Oceania Supercross Championship is the most unique international supercross championship outside of the United States and it is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme with FIM Oceania status and sanctioning.
S-X Open Auckland will also form the fourth round of the Australian Supercross Championship and will feature the Triple-Crown Final race format, with non-stop, high-intensity action that will have fans on the edge of their seats, for the entire duration of the event.
The 2019 Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland is proudly supported by Auckland Tourism Events & Economic Development (ATEED) and Monster Energy.
