10 year old Arenacross series champion 'Rossi' ready for final race in LiverpoolBy Tom Dootson
10 year old Arenacross series champion Rossi is preparing for a no pressure race after already winning the series.
Riders from the Arenacross tour were showing off their impressive skills outside the Echo arena today ahead of the show on Sunday. Jamie Squibb and Dan Whitby will be joined on the ramps by backflipping Chris Meyer, who at 15 years old is already regarded as the next global superstar in the world of Freestyle Motocross. As well as crazy jumps and stunts the show will have a dirt race on a purpose built track inside the arena, but the series has already been won by 10 year old Rossi Beard, who has won the last 3 races and is due to be crowned Arenacross series champion.
Arenacross is the crazy indoor off-spring of motocross racing first conceived in America in the 1970s. The sport takes the most spectacular elements of outdoor racing, boils them down into a concentrated cocktail and then shoehorns them into arenas onto purpose-built dirt tracks. Racing is short, sharp and shockingly spectacular with huge triple jumps, killer mogul sections and fast, banked corners all designed to provide a high-octane sensory feast.
The tour finale will be a special ‘matinee’ afternoon show. Tickets start at just £10 for children and £19 for adults with family tickets starting at £49. To buy yours call the box office on 0844 8000 400 or go to www.arenacrossuk.com
