Final showdown for Arenacross at Wembley
The 2016 Monster Energy Arenacross Tour is preparing for the climax of what has been an electrifying eleven-round series. It approaches its grand finale at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday February 27 with three riders capable of taking the Pro class win.
The mathematics confirm that a Frenchman – Geartec Yamaha’s Cedric Soubeyras, SR75 Molson Racing Suzuki’s Thomas Rametter or Cyrille Coulon - will win but, taking recent encounters into consideration, it is set to be something of a grudge match. It’s an open book as to who will survive the Arenacross racing carnage.
The points rule out Brits Adam Chatfield (Buildbase Honda) and Jack Brunell (SJR Kawasaki) from taking the title, but both are more than capable of taking the class win on the night and the hearts of, what is anticipated to be, a partisan crowd.
Away from the hard-core racing, the roar of the gathered spectators is expected to reach something of a crescendo when the highly-charged and energetic Freestyle motocross athletes hit the ramps. Edgar Torronteras, Jamie Squib, Dan Whitby, Samson Eaton and Arran Powley are Tour regulars and have yet to disappoint AX audiences with their wild tricks, massive whips and roller-coaster back flips.
• The final leg of the 2016 Monster Energy Arenacross Tour gets underway when doors open at 6pm on February 27 at the SSE Arena, Wembley. Tickets may be available on the gate, but we'd suggest you book your Arenacross tickets in advance.
