Arenacross tour takes off in manchester

It’ll be all eyes on Manchester when the new, action-packed 2016 Monster Energy Arenacross Tour, powered by Ford Ranger, makes a powerful return to the UK next year.


Reigning and former Arenacross champions will go head-to-head in a battle of the racing titans when the unique series gets underway at 7pm on Saturday the 2nd of January 2016 at the Manchester Arena.


The Tour, which will take place in seven major city arenas, is poised to deliver eleven rounds of high-octane indoor Motocross racing, with jaw-dropping forty-foot-high Freestyle Motocross displays mixed into the equation. 


Arenacross is a high point at an otherwise quiet time of year. It will be fuelled with full-on racing from top-level, manufacturer-supported professional teams. American supercross hotshots will take to the circuit in an endeavour to lay claim to the highly-prized Arenacross crown, however, all former Arenacross Pro class champions, namely, the 2015 champion, Frenchman Thomas Ramette, the 2014 winner, again from France, Fabian Izoird, together with 2013 victor, British-born Adam Chatfield, will be out to stop them. It’s set to be an epic series.


Away from the racing, the crammed Arenacross Tour programme will include radical Freestyle MX, where the giants of the FMX world will showcase their breath-taking skills some forty foot above the track. A set of jump-offs will determine who is the biggest bad boy of the air, prior to an insane and frenzied freestyle free-for-all, in which the competitors hit the purpose-built ramps in close succession to try and outdo each other with their tricks and back flips.



With its highly-charged atmosphere, thumping beat, laser lights, and commentator hype, onlookers are left in no doubt that to be an Arenacross spectator, they’re as much a part of the show as the racing competitors and Freestyle athletes themselves. It really doesn’t matter whether you’re the most clued-up off-road aficionado or not - There are few better ways in which to lock out the winter blues.
