Ricky Carmichael to Return to AUS-X Open


The third rendition of the AUS-X Open set for November 11 and 12, in Sydney, Australia, continues to add to their world-class lineup. Ricky Carmichael has been added to a list that already includes Chad Reed, Jason Anderson, and a host of talented Australians.

Carmichael, who competed in the event in 2015 in a head-to-head showdown race versus Reed, said it was an easy decision to return to the event in 2017.

"I’m beyond excited to return down under for the AUS-X Open in 2017," he said. "When I came down for the 2015 event, I didn’t quite know what to expect initially. However, during and after the event I was absolutely blown away by how much fun it was—plus how professional the event was carried out.

“Returning in 2017 was a very easy decision—I love Australia. The fans are amazing, plus with the addition of Chad and Jason I’m just as excited as a fan to see this battle unfold. If you are a supercross fan from wherever in the world, you won’t want to miss this!"

Event co-founder and director, Adam Bailey, confirmed that more big announcements could be coming soon.

"It’s certainly been a big week of announcements, but truthfully we’re just getting warmed up. We’re pumped to drop some bombshells in the very near future—watch this space."
