Round five of the WMX Championship will take place on Friday, May 19, alongside the opening round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross schedule with the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, California. The season opener always boasts the most media buzz and this year the premier WMX athletes will have the opportunity to take advantage of the same race media opportunities as the men.
Many of the industry’s heavy hitters are on-site all weekend, which makes the two-moto WMX format on Friday a great opportunity for exposure. For more information on the Hangtown Motocross Classic weekend, head over to the MX Sports Pro Racing website.
