The four-time AMA Supercross Champion last took on the competition Downunder in 2016, but the Yamaha ambassador will return to the AUS-X Open and the second round of the series in Auckland, New Zealand.
“When I heard about the new Triple Crown format, I was stoked,”
“For me, I think three rounds of ten laps will work to my advantage. The fans get to see us three times on the track and they get three gate drops, which I think is a huge deal. It was my first time down under in 2016, but this time heading to Sydney, I’m more prepared. It’s going to be fun to get back to Qudos Bank Arena. The fans and the atmosphere is like no other event in the world, and I can’t wait to be a part of it this November 10.”
RV will go head-to-head with Chad Reed, Justin Brayton, Justin Barcia, and current 450SX Champion Jason Anderson for the AUS-X Open crown. Reed and Brayton are both confirmed for the New Zealand event.
The AUS-X Open will take place November 10 in Sydney, with the Auckland round on November 24. Keep an eye on https://www.australiansupercross.com.au/ for all details and updates.
