Superprestigio - Live Stream!
Cycle World is pleased to announce a partnership with AMA Pro Racing and RPM Racing to deliver exclusive live streaming video coverage on www.cycleworld.com of the 2014 Superprestigio Dirt Track from the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time on Saturday, January 11.
Revived by 2013 MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez, the Superprestigio brings together top roadracing and off-road stars for an exciting evening of competition using an American-style flat-track format that many riders now use as a training method. Because an international flat-track race would be incomplete without American riders, Marquez invited reigning AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Champion Brad "The Bullet" Baker to participate in this unique event. Fellow Americans Kenny Noyes and Merle Scherb will also compete, and AMA Pro Flat Track flagman Kevin Clark will be on hand to entertain the crowd. The Superprestigio was created in 1979 by magazine publisher Jaime Alguersuari and has been held 15 times at pavement venues. Three future American world champions-John Kocinski, Kenny Roberts Jr., and Colin Edwards-made their European debuts at the Superprestigio. Other Americans who have competed include Randy Mamola, Rich Oliver, and Chris D'Alusio, and at RPM-organized dirt-track races, Jay Springsteen and Steve Morehead.
A truly international affair, this year's event will also feature riders from England, France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Live coverage of the 2014 Superprestigio Dirt Track on www.cycleworld.com will only be available in North America.
