Riders wanted for indoor supercross in Helsinki Finland, Friday 31st of January & Saturday 1st of February 2014

General information:
A two day opening of Finnish Supercross series 2014 will take place in Helsinki, Finland on Friday 31st of January & Saturday 1st of February 2014.

Helsinki Supercross is arranged as part of biggest motorcycling Expo in Nordic countries. We are looking for a pro riders from the US and also from Europe to participate in the event. The race is open for both 450 and 250 riders. Riders need to have Supercross experience and passport. The promoter of the race will arrange the flights, transportation and accommodation for the chosen riders from US and provide them with a bike and a mechanic for the race. We are looking for riders having experience in Supercross, Arenacross or MEC. Riders from Europe can get support with their travel expenses. No start money.

Last year Jason Thomas ended his pro career here by winning both nights. The event has moved to bigger venue for 2014 and track will be bigger but still safe (no triples). We have previously had US riders like Weston Peick, Nick Paluzzi, Matt Boni, Chris Plouffe, Cole Siebler and Chris Gosselaar racing over here.

Video from last year:

The promoter of Helsinki Supercross is aware that Anaheim III round of Supercross is on same weekend, but hopefully some east cost 250 riders and willing to come over and gain some international racing experience.
