JACKSON STRONG TO LAY IT ALL ON THE LINE AT THE AUS-X OPEN
Current X Games ‘Best Trick’ Gold Medallist – Jackson Strong, has confirmed that he’ll compete at the AUS-X Open for 2016, joining the decorated roster of FMX World Champions (Clinton Moore and Tom Pages) who are headed to Qudos Bank Arena on November 12 & 13.
Strong, who won both Monster Energy ‘Best Trick’ contests (Saturday & Sunday) in 2015, is prepared to once again lay it all on the line in 2016, and send it for his Australian fans.
“Nothing sounds more patriotic to me than launching into the roof in front of thousands of screaming Aussie fans”, commented Strong.
The AUS-X Open is the richest Freestyle Motocross contest in the Southern Hemisphere, with a record-breaking $120,000 prize pool up for grabs.
Strong identifies the AUS-X Open event as the perfect platform to attempt the impossible, and ‘send it’ on home soil.
“Last years AUS-X Open was without a doubt the best supercross and freestyle motocross event Australia has ever seen; and something that I’m not going to miss (out on).”
Strong captured both AUS-X Open victories in 2015, and $40,000 worth of prize money by virtue. To repeat the same in 2016, Strong believes it’ll come down to two factors.
“I think it’s pretty much going to come down to who’s got the biggest balls, and who’s willing to send it the furthest”, concluded Strong.
The AUS-X Open is the largest and most prestigious action sports event in the Southern Hemisphere. An international supercross exclusive will run alongside the FMX ‘Best Trick’ competition, creating an absolutely unmissable experience that the whole family can enjoy.
The AUS-X Open kicks off at Qudos Bank Arena (formerly AllPhones) on November 12 & 13. Tickets start at $40 and are selling fast, get your tickets now via Ticketek, or this link: http://bit.ly/1VhJqtg
