THE KTM JR. SUPERCROSS CHALLENGE RETURNS FOR 2017!
The most talked about event on the Monster Energy Supercross circuit returns: the KTM Jr. Supercross Challenge (KJSC) is back for another season! In its sixteenth year existence it has showcased the talents of over 2, 900 boys and girls in stadium racing venues worldwide to race on the very same tracks as their Supercross racing heroes. And while the KJSC highlights these talented minicycle riders from around the country, it also promotes motorcycling as a family activity – exciting and accessible – especially for kids!
From the first practice lap to the final race, the KJSC offers a safe, supportive and entertaining environment for all riders, parents and fans. The KJSC is a fantastic opportunity for participants to immerse themselves in the excitement of Supercross from a very unique perspective, and to enjoy the sport as a fun and rewarding experience.
For 2017, the application process is available online. Interested riders must meet the requirements stated in the official rules, which are found on the registration page.
If a rider is selected to race the KJSC, they will receive a Troy Lee Designs gear package which includes a Troy Lee Designs/KTM racing jersey, racing pants, gloves and a limited-edition KTM Racing hat. These items where specially designed and selected to help prepare KJSC stars for the biggest racing experience of their lives. And while only one rider may win the event, all KJSC participants and families will take home memories and this souvenir Troy Lee Designs package.
