Aussie Motocross - Live

Posted on February 26, 2021

Australian motocross has produced a bunch of World class riders over the years. Riders who have won in Europe or America, from Jeff Leisk in the 1980's, to Kim Ashkenazi, Michael Byrne, Chad Reed, Andrew McFarlane, Dean Ferris, Todd Waters, Hunter Lawrence, Jed Beaton, Mitchell Evans, Jett Lawrence and many more.

The competition in Australia has always been World class, and now, as the sport moves into a new direction, it looks like there might be another run of top level Australians coming out of the woodwork.

A new series has been organized after long time Australian motocross championship promoter Kevin Williams decided his time was up at the front of the sport down under. Having produced a couple of World championship rounds in the early 2000's, which spring-boarded names like Reed, McFarlane and Byrne to the World, it was time for Williams to hand the sport back to the Australian motorcycle federation (Motorcycle Australia).

Now with the new Penrite ProMX championship, there comes amazing news that the series will be run live Worldwide. Below is the press release on this great news.

Motocross fans will have access to the biggest television package in the history of Australian motocross when the 2021 Penrite ProMX Championship, presented by AMX Superstores (ProMX), launches into action on screens via Live Free to Air TV and Pay TV in HD, plus the new ProMX TV Live Stream.

In an impressive Worldwide TV package struck by Motorcycling Australia, race fans will get to see the 2021 ProMX Championship Live on SBS as the Official Free to Air TV partner, and through the official Pay TV provider Fox Sports Australia. Whilst fans across the globe can tune in to Fox Sports Asia, as well as online through www.auspromx.com.au with ProMX TV Live Stream.

This is a massive boost for motocross fans here in Australia and around the World who now can follow all the ProMX action live if they are unable to get trackside and see, hear and smell the action.

Motorcycling Australia CEO, Peter Doyle, said race fans around Australia and the World, would be the big winners from the 2021 ProMX television partnership.
