MORGANTOWN, W.Va (May 19, 2017) – After the much-anticipated announcement that the Monster Energy MXGP of USA would be held at the renowned Gatorback Cycle Park in Gainesville, Florida, Unlimited Sports MX and MX Sports are pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale.
The Labor Day Weekend event will serve as Round 17 of the 20-race world championship circuit.

Current points leader and multi-time world champion, Italy’s Antonio Cairoli, will take on some of the biggest names in American motocross as he looks to secure his ninth MXGP world title.
With a rich history of hosting professional racing dating back to the eighties, as well as hosting one of the premier amateur races in the country (the annual Winter Olympics held Thanksgiving Week), Gatorback Cycle Park is the perfect fit for an international showdown of motocross. Gatorback opened its gate to the world of amateur motocross in 1973 and hosted its first professional program later that year with the AMA Winter-Am’s.
