Supercross is already at the start gate for 2021 kicking off in Huston, Texas at NRG Stadium on the 16th of January. AMX Superstores are AGAIN proudly sponsoring the Australian broadcast of AMA Supercross on ESPN through Foxtel, Foxtel by Telstra and Kayo.  With our national retail team filled with active Aussie racers, AMX is passionate about the sport and is excited to be bringing world class sporting right to you.
The 2021 season has a different format to previous years, which could mix it up and make for some exciting racing. Eli Tomac finally got his first 450 supercross championship in the 2020 season, so many are looking at Eli to back it up again. This will not be easy as there are a lot of riders that want that title to their name. Could past champions Cooper Webb and Jason Anderson come through with a second title?  
A rider that will be after his first 450 Supercross Title is Zach Osborne, fresh from winning the 2020 Pro Motocross championship and winning the final round of the 2020 Supercross season, Zach will be one to watch. Other riders not to rule out are Adam Cianciarulo, Malcolm Stewart, Dylan Ferrandis, Chase Sexton, Justin Barcia and many more. The 450 class is jammed packed this season and could be anyone's to win.
 
No previous 250 supercross champions in the class means we will see two first time champions in the 2021 season (East and West). We will also see Jeremy Martin back on Yamaha where he won multiple motocross championships, could this be what he needs to get his first Supercross Championship? One rider that has made a big impact in his first season is Jett Lawrence, the young Aussie being a favourite for this years championship. Many riders have run the red plate in past years but just have not been able to carry it to the end, Justin Cooper, Christian Craig, Colt Nichols and Austin Forkner to name a few.  
Other riders to watch out for are Hunter Lawrence, Alex Matrin, Cameron McAdoo, Mitchell Oldenburg and Michael Mosiman, plus we also cannot rule out the rookies such as Max Vohland and Nate Thrasher.
AMX Superstores has just launched the brand new range of FMF Vision goggles and are giving away an FMF swag bag every round to one lucky, random winner!  Click here to learn more on how to join our Pulp MX Fantasy league and enter! 
 
The 2021 season is going to be one to remember and we cannot wait for the first gate drop in.
