2011 AMA Supercross Preview to Air on CBS

Feld Motor Sports announced yesterday that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season preview show will air on December 26, at 3 p.m. EST on CBS Sports, featuring a new format. The Monster Energy Supercross season preview show will lead out of CBS Sports' Sunday NFL coverage.

“The one-hour preview show will take fans through the highly anticipated story lines that are emerging as the 2011 season closes in on the gate drop of Anaheim 1, January 8,”
Feld says in a statement.

A wide number of AMA Supercross riders will breakdown the 2011 upcoming season, including AMA Supercross champion Ryan Dungey, who is defending his title. Also, Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Jeff Emig and Jeff Stanton, will provide their analysis on the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross championship.

McGrath, who is the all-time winningest rider in supercross history with seven titles and 72 main event wins, says he can't remember a season with a field this talented.

"This is possibly the deepest field in the sport's history. There has not been a season in a long time where so many different riders have the potential to win. I can't wait to get this season started. I am looking forward to being involved in this ‘new' preview show format with the rest of the supercross greats," McGrath says.

Five-time AMA Supercross class champion Carmichael says that the title chase in 2011 is wide open because anyone can win. "This season could closely compare to the 2005 season, but I believe this one could edge it out if everyone stays healthy just because there are more guys that have a chance to actually win straight up and not because of a technicality," he explains.
