Motocross riders invited to enter inaugural All-Ireland Cup to be staged at 2019 Belfast Arenacross Tour

The 2019 Arenacross Tour at Belfast will introduce a new tournament to celebrate Irish motocross racing.

The Arenacross Tour is due to arrive back at The SSE Arena on February 18 and 19 and will this time feature an All-Ireland Cup.

The fastest and best riders from both the MX1 and MX2 Irish National Championships will be invited to contest the championship.

Twelve riders per class will be selected to take part in this first-of-its-kind Arenacross initiative. They’ll engage in a series of timed qualifications and heat races during the day to determine the top six MX1 and MX2. Those 12 local heroes will then go out into the All-Irish Arenacross Main Event of both evenings, pitting wheel-against-wheel in what is anticipated to be a no-holds-barred fight to the chequered flag. An overall champion will be crowned on Saturday night.

Riders interested in taking part in the All-Ireland Cup should apply online via www.arenacrossuk.com

The application process is now open and will close at 10am on Saturday the 10th of November 2018.
