Suzuki Crossover Challenge to be Held Under the Lights
AURORA, Ill. (October 29, 2003) - Clear Channel Entertainment - Motor Sports and American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) announced today that the sixth-annual Suzuki Crossover Challenge - for the first time ever - is scheduled to run during the night program of THQ World Supercross GP/AMA Supercross Series January 24, at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.
The Crossover Challenge is comprised of 24 action sport athletes and celebrities, separated into eight teams of three, competing on identically prepared Suzuki RM 125cc motorcycles. The combined points from all three riders determine the team's final score. The winning team presents $1,000 to a charity of their choice.
"I love the Suzuki Crossover Challenge," said three-time winner Victor Sheldon, who professionally races jet skis. "Every year, it gets bigger and bigger. Now, the training level has gone off the hook; some guys even hire motorcycle trainers to prepare for the event. I know that Brian Lopes, who was second last year, is training for this event really hard."
