PREVIEW: World Supercross Round 2 from Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Arena!

The FIM World Supercross Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will make history this weekend as the stunning destination of Au Dhabi hosts the middle east’s first ever international Supercross event!

Words & Images: World Supercross Championship

As a truly world-class destination for racing and entertainment, fans can expect an unmissable experience on and off-track as the dirt battleground meets the Middle East’s majestic sand dunes for the first time at the iconic Etihad Arena.

Featuring adrenaline-fuelled excitement, epic pyrotechnics, and heart-stopping action for fans from around the world, this is one you do not want to miss.

In the 450cc WSX class, Ken Roczen was fairly dominant at the opening round in Birmingham, and holds a 7-point advantage over Joey Savatgy going to Abu Dhabi. Great Britain’s Dean Wilson lies just 2 points behind third-placed Vince Friese, with Justin Hill right inbetween them on the table!

In SX2, Shane McElrath holds a slender 3-point advantage over British hope Max Anstie, with a big gap back to the injured Enzo Lopes in third. With Mitchell Oldenburg and Australian Aaron Tanti both moving up to the 450s, the next best chaser is French charger Maxime Desprey,  but it truly is a two-horse race for the series between the American and the Brit!

McElrath & Anstie will continue their battle for the SX2 World Championship in Abu Dhabi!
