There will be several riders with experience from AMA Supercross racing in Finland this week. US riders Cade Clason, Josh Cartwright, Chase Marquier and Luke Neese can be counted as favourites. But still maybe the biggest favourite will be Finnish and Estonian hero Harri Kullas, who has won the event six times and raced this year for example in Motocross of Nations, MXGP and British Championships. The two other winners of the Tampere Supercross are Weston Peick and Alex Ray.

Spanish Jorge Zaragoza will also travel to Finland with his Stark Varg. This will mark one of the first international supercross races, where the Stark electric dirt bike will line up against fast US riders and Euros.

Joan Cros from Spain is a fan favourite in Finland from past years and he’ll be back in Tampere.

Estonian riders Erki Kahro and Karel Kutsar are familiar with Tampere Supercross, as well as Danish Mathias Jörgensen and UK rider Jake Preston.

First timers in Finland will be Norwegian duo Runar Sudmann with his Stark and Marcus Christensen. Lithuanian Dovydas Karha will also make his first trip to Tampere.

Jere Haavisto won every MX1 race in Finnish Championship this year and has been training supercross since Motocross of Nations, so hometown rider is also one of the favourites. It can also be expected Finnish MX1 class bronze medalist Emil Silander to do good and also Finnish MX2 class silver medal rider Matias Vesterinen to be in the final both nights.

Beside the main class there will be SX2 class for Finnish young stars.

And as a side show there will be two riders “Man against Man” two lap races both nights. Spectators will also see Talaria electric bike race with riders such as three time enduro World Champion Eero Remes and supermoto World Champion Mauno Hermunen.

There will also be an Offroad Expo exhibition with almost 50 exhibitors in Tampere Sports Center at the same time.

Following his horrific crash at the Arlington round of AMA Supercross, an update has been provided on Austin Forkner’s condition from his father Mike Forkner via Main Event Moto. “Austin’s CT Scan on his head came back good – Fractured L3 & L4 in back – but no surgery has to heal on its own. He has a broken scapula. Which will heal on its own. So no surgery,” he stated.
