Feld Entertainment® announced today that the inaugural Monster Energy FMX High Rollers Contest will be webcast live from the Monster Energy Cup Pit Party at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 15 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT on monsterenergy.com.
The world’s top freestyle motocross riders will compete in three different disciplines - Freestyle Motocross (FMX), the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip and the FMX Quarterpipe Big Air competition. With $100,000 up for grabs, the Monster Energy FMX High Rollers event will see thirty of the world’s best riders – including Axell Hodges, Bryce Hudson, Nate Adams, Taka Higashino, David Rinaldo, Jarryd McNeil and additional riders hailing from around the globe – battle it out on one of the sport’s largest stages.
The Monster Energy FMX High Rollers Contest is a must-see competition. The one-of-a-kind course took over a week to construct and utilizes nearly as much surface area and dirt as a Supercross track. Designed to challenge riders, this course features some of the most technical elements ever seen in an FMX track design. Highlights include a 120’ ramp, three 13’ quarters, two (new) 18’ quarters for the quarterpipe big air competition, two standard FMX ramps and a super kicker.
“The Monster Energy Cup is a headline Monster event and adding the freestyle component of motocross with an all-star line-up will definitely elevate the overall event and fan experience this year,” said Monster Energy Vice President of Sports Marketing, Mitch Covington.
The Monster Energy Cup Pit Party is a big part of the fan experience as thousands come early to take part in the festival-like atmosphere and meet Supercross’ elite, including Ryan Dungey, Ken Roczen, Chad Reed, Marvin Musquin, Eli Tomac and more.
The Monster Energy Cup Pit Party takes place outside the stadium from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. PT. and is free of charge with a valid Monster Energy Cup ticket. The Monster Energy FMX High Rollers Contest will start at 1:30 with the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip competition, followed by Freestyle Motocross (FMX) at 2:30 p.m., and then the FMX Quarterpipe Big Air competition at 4:30 p.m.
