Wagga Wagga will see Christmas come early for motorsports fans and adrenaline junkies alike, as the world’s best Supercross racers and X Games freestyle performers arrive in Wagga for the final round of the FOX Australian Supercross Championship.

The 2022 FOX Australian Supercross Championship season finale and the Traeger Grills Australian Freestyle Motocross (FMX) Championships will be held at Wagga Yarragundry on 3 December.

Riders from Japan, Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand and the American superstars of the sport will go head to head with our homegrown talent on the biggest Supercoss track of the year.

American World Supercross podium finisher and four-time Australian Supercross Champion Justin Brayton will look to clinch his fifth consecutive championship at the season finale on his HRC Racing Honda machine.

However the resurgent Matt Moss aboard his BBR102 Motorsports Yamaha will be looking to continue his race-winning form from Newcastle this past weekend and show the Waaga fans a triumphant Australian victory at the final round.

Along with Brayton vs Matt Moss, World Supercross regulars such as America’s Josh Hill and the UK’s Max Anstie to name just a few will boost the international flavour against our own exceptional crop of Australian Supercross talent in what can only be described as an “all-star” showdown coming to Wagga.

Fans can expect to be blown away by a combination of huge triple jumps, technical rhythm jump combinations and the infamous ‘whoop’ section.


The whoop section is where riders will be forced to hold their nerve for 20 laps across the man-eating pad of near vertical jumps that are skimmed like a stone on water by the pros, but one wrong move and a rider’s night ends early with often a spectacular dismount.

If Supercross racing wasn’t enough, the real daredevils of the two-wheeled world will be competing in the Australian FMX Championship – Harry Bink the biggest name in freestyle motocross currently following his recent triple backflip to claim gold at the World Nitro Games. He joins X Games gold medalist Blake “Bilko” Williams, who returns from California solely to claim the win at this event.

Bilko will throw his signature 360-degree spins over a 75-foot ramp gap against the legends of the sport such as X Games gold medalist and double backflip pioneer Cam Sinclair and Metal Mulisha OG’s Dayne Kinnaird.

The next generation of Austrlian FMX talent will also be on display with young guns Jake Smith and local up-and-comer Tom Richards to name a few, who will be vying to stake their claim on the $15,000 additional prize pool up for grabs across the FMX finals.

As a family-friendly event and spectator spectacular, it is expected the combination of a world-class Supercross track and FMX icons such as Bilko will attract both local fans and visitors from the big cities.

With Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra well within driving distance for an overnight trip to witness this incredible show, a record crowd is expected to attend the international speedway.

Tickets are limited and expected to sell out fast and are available only online here.
