February 3rd, 2017.

When the 2017 Arenacross Tour powers into Sheffield on Saturday the 11th of February for the penultimate leg of the Tour, expectations are set to be at an all-time high as the strongest-ever Pro and Pro Lites team line-up, packed-out youth classes and an insane bunch of FMX athletes all get ready to explode into the city’s Arena and entertain the masses.

Never have the top six in the Pro class been separated by so few points as they get ready for the all-important round at Sheffield. There are just 12 points between first and sixth and, with two Brits right in the thick of it, there is a very real possibility that the 2017 Arenacross crown could stay in the UK. Frenchman Cedric Soubeyras who rides for the British team RFX St Blazey MX is leading the championship by four points over his team-mate, Italian Angelo Pellegrini. Reigning AX champ Thomas Ramette (SR75 World Suzuki) is third, with two Brits – Adam Chatfield (Buildbase Honda) and Jack Brunell (Team Green Kawasaki) – in fourth and fifth. Florent Richier from France, riding for the Keystone Honda team, rounds out the top six.

Arenacross has enjoyed plenty of media hype this year on national and local television and radio, in national, regional and specialist press and, thanks to its interactive social media, has reached literally millions around the world.

Doors open at 6.30pm at the Sheffield Arena for round six. Tickets are on sale now via or by calling the Box Office on 0844 338 8000.
