Barcia enters AUS-X Open

Justin Barcia is heading to Sydney!



Aside from the Monster Energy Cup, the AUS-X Open has become the most exciting off-season event. The relatively-new race, which is held in Sydney each November, never fails to attract some incredible talent. This year will be no different, as Justin Barcia confirmed his participation earlier today.

I have been following the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney since the first year back in 2015 and I am pumped to head to Australia for the first time in my career,” Justin Barcia said in a press release. “The AUS-X Open demands perfection against the best riders on the planet and I have my sights set on one thing only, winning in Sydney! I have heard the event has some of the most insane fans and inside the stadium is deafening – that is the sort of racing environment I thrive off.”

We are really pumped to have someone of Justin’s caliber competing at this year’s Monster Energy AUS-X Open Sydney,” Adam Bailey, the event co-found and director, said. “It is always exciting when the world’s best come down under to compete, especially for the first time, at our event. Justin is undoubtedly one of the greatest talents on two wheels and he brings with him a style and charisma that is sure to wow fans in Sydney on November 10.”

A handful of high-profile participants are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Dean Wilson took the first main event win last year, then Jason Anderson won on the second night.

Wonthaggi, Gillman, Toowoomba and Queensland Moto Park all featured on the 2023 calendar, while Horsham and MX Farm Queensland have previously hosted Australian Motocross Championship rounds but will now be making their debuts under the ProMX moniker.

In 2024, ProMX will consist of the following Australian Championship classes:
• Thor MX1;
• Pirelli MX2;
• Maxxis MX3;
• Ezilift MXW (Women’s); and
• Veterans.

The MX1, MX2 and MX3 classes will feature across the entire calendar, MXW at four rounds, and the Veterans at one.

In addition, MX85 (World Junior Motocross Championship qualifying) will be a support class at three rounds.

The full class composition at each round will be announced shortly.

Motorcycling Australia CEO, Peter Doyle, says the 2024 ProMX calendar builds on what is already a shining example of how a professional championship should be run.

“We’ve now had two complete seasons of ProMX after the Covid interruptions and during that period, the growth curve of the championship across all the key metrics continues to go through the roof,” he said. “And, of course, the racing is brilliant, which is what keeps riders, spectators, commercial partners and supporting clubs coming back for more.

“Next year will be more of the same, and we’re certainly set for another terrific season of ProMX.”
