Join us for a fun look at the history of the sport as we find out how it got to where it is today.

In case you have lived under a rock that doesn’t have WiFi or cable TV for the past 25 years, we have for you the animated history of Supercross, the demon child of motocross in the US.

While America has a stand-alone motocross series that rivals (and many say surpasses) the MXGP World Championship, there is no indoor moto series in the world that even reaches close to AMA Supercross. It is the biggest stadium-based motorsport in the world, and exploded in American in the 80s and 90s, continuing to thrive today. In America, it is the second largest stadium sport to football, in terms of attendance per event.

In the three minute Animated Guide to Supercross, we touch on the sport’s European roots and then the eventual transition to America. From there, we look at some of the sport’s greats, from superstar of the 80s (and current Red Bull GRC racer) Jeff Ward all the way through to the 2015 champ Ryan Dungey, and legends in between like James Stewart, Ricky Carmichael and the winningest supercross rider ever, “Showtime” Jeremy McGrath. So kick back and enjoy the Animated Guide to Supercross, and get ready to check out the next chapter in Supercross history with Red Bull Straight Rhythm.
