A two day final of Open Finnish Supercross series will take place in Lahti, Finland on October 21st - 22nd 2011. We are looking for a riders from the US and also from Europe to participate in the event. The race is open for both MX1 (SX) and MX2 (Lites) riders. The promoter of the race will arrange the flights, transportation and accommodation for the riders and provide them with a bike and a mechanic for the race. We are looking for riders having experience in Supercross or/and Arenacross. No start money.
Last year US riders Matt Boni, Chris Gosselaar, Weston Peick and Joey Rossi raced at the event. Boni was crowned as King of Lahti, while Peick placed third, Chris Gosselaar fifth and Rossi sixth. There will be also a whip contest for extra prize money. This year the races will be on Friday and Saturday and big Supercross afterparty on Saturday night.
