Broc Tickle, Nick Wey, Mike Alessi, Kyle Chisholm and returning champion, Ricky Renner, have all be confirmed for the second annual Edge of Summer MX event held at Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
RCH co-owner, and FMX legend, Carey Hart will also line up in the 40-plus amateur class.
“The Ricky Carmichael designed Edge of Summer hybrid supercross/motocross track is longer and highly technical this year, with increased lap times across the grounds of Soaring Eagle,” said Raul Venegas, Director of Marketing and Entertainment at Soaring Eagle. “Edge of Summer MX will be a unique test for these professional racers, tapping on both their critical timing of the jumps from their supercross backgrounds and their endurance and ability to put the bike on edge and carry high rates of speed through the rugged motocross sections.”
Ricky Carmichael and Ken Roczen will also attend the event this weekend, posing for photos and signing autographs.
