SMX RIDERS'S CUP
The first ever Monster Energy SMX Riders’ and Manufacturers’ Cup will be taking place inside the spectacular VELTINS-Arena, Gelsenkirchen, Germany. It has been a while since the world has been able to witness a race that pins the best of Europe against the best of the USA, let alone indoors on a unique style motocross track.
This special event is an invitation only race where the manufacturers’ KTM, Husqvarna, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Kawasaki have selected 3 of their fastest riders from absolutely anywhere in the world, to race for the glory of their brand.
The team that wins the Monster Energy SMX Manufacturers’ Cup will be able to take the trophy that was presented at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations presented by FIAT Professional in Maggiora, for twelve months only. The design of the trophy resembles the event in every facet of its creation. It’s prestigious, it’s modern and it’s unique, just like the event itself. The trophy will be much like the coveted Chamberlain Cup, in the sense that it cannot be kept for longer than one year unless it is won consecutively.
