France will host its first ever World Supercross Championship Grand Prix race at Groupama Stadium in Lyon. The race will be the second event on the WSX Series schedule.
“Our vision for WSX is to elevate the sport of supercross globally, and we’re excited to bring the World Championship to France for the first time. French fans will now have the opportunity to watch their supercross heroes race for a world title on home soil,” said SX Global CEO, Adam Bailey. “With the World Championship based almost exclusively in the USA until 2022, French fans have not been able to witness racing for a supercross world title in their country.”
Two out of the 10 teams competing in the series are French. Bud Racing and Team GSM. Additionally, the series has attracted several French riders. The WSX French GP will be held on Saturday, July 22nd 2023.
