The Monster Energy FMX High Rollers Contest is a must-see competition. The one-of-a-kind course took over a week to construct and utilizes nearly as much surface area and dirt as a Supercross track. Designed to challenge riders, this course features some of the most technical elements ever seen in an FMX track design. Highlights include a 120' ramp, three 13' quarters, two (new) 18' quarters for the quarterpipe big air competition, two standard FMX ramps and a super kicker.
"The Monster Energy Cup is a headline Monster event and adding the freestyle component of motocross with an all-star line-up will definitely elevate the overall event and fan experience this year," said Monster Energy Vice President of Sports Marketing, Mitch Covington.
The Monster Energy Cup Pit Party is a big part of the fan experience as thousands come early to take part in the festival-like atmosphere and meet Supercross' elite, including Ryan Dungey, Ken Roczen, Chad Reed, Marvin Musquin, Eli Tomac and more.
The Monster Energy Cup Pit Party takes place outside the stadium from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. PT. and is free of charge with a valid Monster Energy Cup ticket. The Monster Energy FMX High Rollers Contest will start at 1:30 with the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip competition, followed by Freestyle Motocross (FMX) at 2:30 p.m., and then the FMX Quarterpipe Big Air competition at 4:30 p.m.

About the Monster Energy Cup:
The Monster Energy Cup is an annual showcase of the world's top Supercross riders in a one-night-only battle for the coveted Monster Energy Cup trophy and the shot at winning $1 million, the largest prize in motorcycle racing. Unlike any other race, the Monster Energy Cup challenges riders in their fight for victory with three 10-Lap Main Events on a custom-designed track, inspired by five-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ricky Carmichael.
The Monster Energy Cup posts a $250,000 purse, with the winner guaranteed to walk away with a $100,000 check, and any rider that wins all three Main Events will take home $1 million. This feat has occurred just once in the history of the Monster Energy Cup, when Ryan Villopoto made history during a dominant performance in 2011.
