2020 King of MX Season Announced

Motorcycling NSW is pleased to announce the 2020 King of MX calendar. The series, now heading into its third year, is promising to be even stronger, with an emphasis on encouraging local racers in each of the six regions to enter their local qualifier.

The King of MX was designed to revitalise the NSW State Motocross Championship, as well as to support regional clubs and their members by bringing a larger scale open event to them, where local club racers can throw down against those choosing to travel. 2020 will see new partners combined with some long-term supporters to not only maintain the immense overall prize pool, but also tailor more prizes to those who do well at a qualifier, not just the final.

As with previous years, the King of MX will consist of six qualifying events, where the first six or seven (depending on the gates available at each qualifier) riders in each class will earn a ‘golden ticket’ to the final. Once a golden ticket is earned, riders don’t have to race any other qualifiers unless they want to, however each rider is only eligible to earn one golden ticket per class.

At the final, in a location that will be announced in due course, State Title Champions will be decided on the June long weekend, over three motos for each class, with the Prince and Princess of MX crowned from the 13 to under-16 years 250F (128cc-150cc 2st & 200cc-250cc 4st, 13 to u/16 years) and 13 to under-16 years girls’ class (100cc-150cc 2st & 200cc- 250cc 4st, 13 to u/16 years, all female) winners.

The 2020 King and Queen of MX will once again battle it out across their respective feature races, with racers selected based on the results of the senior class races.

MXstore Supports Australia’s Largest Motocross Championship 

MXstore, along with Ballards, have signed on to support entrants in Australia’s largest motocross championship, the King of MX. As presenting partner, MXstore further increases the overall prize pool of the King of MX, rewarding riders at qualifier events and the final, bringing the total prize pool to in excess of $60,000. 

Motorcycling NSW CEO, Dave Cooke: “I’m really happy to see a partnership with MXstore and Ballards for the 2020 series. The King of MX offers more prize money, more prizes, and to a wider range of entrants than any other series and it’s only possible due to the generous support of our partners, and now because of MXstore, we can increase this even further! We share a common core belief in encouraging people to ride their bikes, and we look forward to working with them throughout the championship, encouraging more and more riders to enter, race and have fun on their dirtbikes supporting their local club and to simply ride more.” 

MXstore’s Mark Briggs“We love how the King of MX is designed to make it easy for riders to enter with a wide range of classes so the whole family can take part. Here at MXstore our purpose is to make riding easier, more accessible and help grow our sport so the King of MX event is the perfect fit. We’re stoked to get behind the King of MX and can’t wait to be part of the exciting racing and fun that’s about to unfold!”. 

The support from MXstore and Ballards will see a 50% increase in prize value specifically for the Prince and Princess of MX on top of the significant prize pool of vouchers for the leading junior competitors, while additional vouchers will also be on offer to selected classes at each of the six qualifier events across the state (prize classes to be confirmed prior to each qualifier) giving entrants an unprecedented number of chances to earn prizes as the championship moves around NSW.

King of MX Heads to Dargle

The sixth and final chance to qualify for the King of MX final will be held at Dargle on May 9 and 10, hosted by the Oakdale Junior Motorcycle Club. Dargle is regarded by many as a true motocross track due to its natural terrain layout and heritage as a venue for premiere motocross events, including Mr Motocross, through the 70s and 80s.

Oakdale Junior Motorcycle Club President, Gavin Hunt: I’m really excited that the Oakdale committee has gotten behind this, and we as a club can be a part of the 2020 King of MX series and, even more so, to be able to take it to Dargle. To a lot of us, Dargle represents motocross in its most pure form: rider and machine battling each other as they race across the incredible terrain. As the last qualifier for the King of MX final, the event will offer the last seven Golden Tickets for each of the 18 championship classes. We’ll be encouraging all our members to get out there, race it and have some fun – and hopefully make it through.”

Motorcycling NSW CEO, Dave Cooke: “We’ve obviously been working behind the scenes to include Dargle in the 2020 King of MX calendar for some time, and, although it’s a delayed announcement, I think it’s worth the wait. Dargle is iconic in NSW. The track will lead to some great racing, and it’s a fitting way to close the qualifiers before the final. Thanks to our amazing partners, we have an enormous $62,000 prize pool this year, enabling it to be distributed across all the qualifiers, as well as continuing to reward our state champions at the final, along with our Prince, Princess, King and Queen.”
