In one off the most anticipated signings of the off season Juliana Daniell has been handpicked as the face of Supercross. With most rider line ups confirmed for next season there was still one position up for grabs and its announcement had many men around the world waiting on the edge of their seats.
We can now reveal that Daniell will take her rightful spot as Miss Supercross starting at Anaheim 1 on January 9th.

She has spent time cheerleading for the Atlanta Hawks NBA team, the Atlanta Thrashers NFL team whilst also gracing the cover of a number of fitness magazines.

“I am so grateful to be named Miss Supercross and I’m excited to meet all the incredible fans of the sport this season,” said Daniell. “I love interacting with the people who cheer on all athletes, and I can’t wait to share in the supercross fans’ passion for the most exciting and fastest growing motorsport. These riders are truly exceptional athletes and I’m honoured for the opportunity to bring attention to their talents. There is simply nothing like supercross!”
Director of AMA Supercross Dave Prater is confident Daniell is the perfect candidate for the job due to her years of experience and sociable nature.
