MORGANTOWN, WV – August 24, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – The 2022 MX Sports Pro Racing Scouting Moto Combine, presented by U.S. Air Force Special Warfare, will host its second gathering of the summer as part of the penultimate round of the 50th Anniversary of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. Indiana’s Ironman Raceway will provide the setting for the top amateur prospects in the country to showcase their talents on Friday, August 26, which will take place on the eve of the Tucker Freight Lines Ironman National.

This sets the stage for what we expect to be an exciting and competitive gathering at Ironman, where they’ll be able to gain invaluable insight from our expert coaches and trainers that could benefit them even more on the track.”

Athletes will get their first look at the track with a 15-minute morning practice session before transitioning into the educational aspect of the combine that will include classroom-style instruction from rider coaches and trainers, in addition to insights into the various media aspects of the sport. The day culminates with a pair of 25-minute-plus-two-lap motos and formal podium activities following the racing.
The prospects will be divided into four groups, where they will be assigned to one of four highly respected and well-known rider coaches in collaboration with the U.S. Motorcycle Coaching Association. The Ironman coaching staff is led by returning coaches Broc Glover, a six-time AMA National Champion, and Chad Reed, the 2009 Pro Motocross 450 Class Champion, and will also feature the return of Michael Byrne, the winning coach from the RedBud combine. This trio will be joined by veteran racer Broc Tickle, who currently serves as a consultant and test rider for Kawasaki. Education surrounding the critical areas of fitness and nutrition will be spearheaded by two of the sport’s most respected trainers who were both former pros themselves in Seth Rarick and Gareth Swanepoel.
This unprecedented access to some of American motocross’ most experienced and successful former racers will offer priceless insight into life at the professional level. The shared advice can be of particular importance on the racetrack, where the guidance from each expert will aim to facilitate the individual success of each prospect during the motos.
