“This promotion with Monster Energy inside selected Woolworths outlets is absolutely huge. Having a globally recognised brand such as Monster Energy firstly come on board with the AUS-X Open, and then run a nationwide promotion like this to such a mainstream audience is incredible and vital for the sports expansion within Australia,” commented AUS-X Open director – Ryan Sanderson.
“A sales promotion of this nature has never been done before for supercross in Australia, so it’s incredibly humbling and we are very excited that Monster Energy is giving away a replica motorcycle and the chance to win a VIP experience at the 2016 AUS-X Open”
Monster Energy’s presence will be on the forefront in terms of athletes at the AUS-X Open too, with Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, Cooper Webb, Wil Hahn and Kade Mosig all representing the green claw during the supercross action.
