Monster Energy Supercross Update
AURORA, Ill. (May 6, 2010) – After yet another historic season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, CBS Sports and Feld Motor Sports will present the 2010 recap show on CBS Sports, Sunday, May 9, the day after the season finale from Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. The one-hour show, highlighting the championships won by Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki riders Christophe Pourcel and Jake Weimer, will air at 5 p.m. EST.
The CBS Sports show will also showcase all the highlights and dramatic turn of events that characterized the 2010 AMA Supercross and AMA Supercross Lites title fights. Every battle, controversy and heart-pounding moment will be remembered and CBS Sports will take the viewer all the way back to Anaheim 1 for a race-by-race rundown of one of the most historic seasons ever.
Also featured on the show will be rider interviews from the pits and behind-the-scenes footage that will put the finishing touches on an edge of your seat season.
The stellar battle in the premier AMA Supercross class between rising stars Dungey and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto will be broken down, up to the untimely exit of Villopoto, the season’s winningest rider in 2010. With the title, Dungey became just the second rookie in history to win the world championship while also becoming the youngest champion ever in the sport.
The two hotly contested AMA Supercross Lites regional championships will also be showcased, giving viewers insight as to how Christophe Pourcel and Jake Weimer earned their respective titles and continued the epic legacy of Mitch Payton’s Pro Circuit squad.
“This is a great way to cap-off one of the most unpredictable seasons ever,” added Dave Prater, director of supercross, Feld Motor Sports. “Delivering a one-hour recap show on network television culminates the 2010 season on a national platform where riders, teams and the entire industry are recognized.”
All told, CBS Sports will have aired nine hours of Monster Energy Supercross this season, which has enjoyed prominent national-network coverage on CBS Sports since 2006.
