The adrenalin-filled Moto X Step Up competition will make its Australian debut at the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500, which sees competitior jump a bar as high as 55 feet - that's over 16 metres!
Presented by New Holland Agriculture, the international rider line-up includes Australia’s own Corey Creed who will compete in his first ever Moto X Step Up competition at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
The young-gun will take on some of the world’s biggest names in Moto X Step Up including fellow Australian Jarryd McNeil, who returns to compete in Australia off the back of two gold-medal winning performances at the 2018 X-Games in Minneapolis, USA.
The Moto X Step Up presented by New Holland Agriculture will be positioned between the City of Adelaide Family Zone and the recently relocated concert precinct, creating a dynamic centrepiece for all event goers.
Joining Aussies Creed and McNeil in Adelaide is an array of international competitors including American Colby Raha (2017 X-Games Gold Medallist) who spoke of the significance of taking the competition to Australia.
Similar to high jump, Moto X Step Up will see the bar increase in height, beginning at 36 feet and sometimes reaching 55 feet in order to secure eliminations. If a rider is unsuccessful in their two attempts they are eliminated. The winner is declared when one rider remains.
The Czech Republic’s Libor Podmol (X-Games Austin 2016 Gold Medallist) and the USA’s Tom Parsons (X-Games Austin 2014 Gold Medallist) round out the field in what is set to be a thrilling spectacle for fans.
There will be multiple elimination stages across the four days of the event. Stay tuned for times to be announced closer to the event.
