Best Motocross Racers in the World Back for Hangtown

“Look for the Hangtown Ad in the Sacramento Bee for Discount Tickets”

(Prairie City, California) With only a week left before the 40th Annual Honda Hangtown Motocross Classic, excitement is building about the news coming from the AMA – Toyota Motocross Championship Series.

Top factory riders, who were hurt or road limited schedules during the Supercross Series, are now ready to do battle outdoors. No more racing on flat converted footballs field, we’re talking about real 30 minute handlebar-to-handlebar battles with three-story jumps and speeds exceeding 70 miles per hour. If you can’t bank off a 45 degree uphill turn then you’re not talking about outdoor motocross racing.

James Stewart, Chad Reed, Kevin Wyndham, Tim Ferry, Ivan Tedesco, Ben Townley, Andrew Short, Davi Millsaps, Mike Alessi, and Eric Sorby are all slated for Motocross Division at Hangtown. In the Motocross Lites class, Ryan Villopoto, Trey Canard, Jason Lawrence and Ryan Dungey are all ready to do battle for the Hangtown Lites crown.
