PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Oct. 22, 2004) — AMA Pro Racing has released its schedule for the 2005 AMA Motocross Championship. The championship consists of 12 rounds including a new round in Lakewood, Colo. Additionally, similar to 2004, the series begins and ends in California and provides teams and riders with an off-weekend between the end of the THQ AMA Supercross Series and the beginning of the AMA Motocross Championship.
AMA Pro Racing SX/MX Series Manager Steve Whitelock is excited about the addition of the Colorado round. ¿We¿re looking forward to bringing AMA Motocross to racing fans in the Denver area,¿ said Whitelock. ¿We¿re confident that the new event at Thunder Valley will be a nice complement to the existing schedule. Plus, it enables us to reach a region of the Unites States that has lacked an AMA Motocross race. ¿
