BlackBook official data partner Hookit analysed Supercross’ social growth as the series 2021 season comes to an end.
The Supercross championship is the largest off-road motorcycle racing championship in the world. The typical season stretches from early January through to early May.
As with most sports in season during March 2020, Supercross had to stop events and figure out a plan B. This led to an 85 day hiatus of Supercross events between 7th March and 31st May, when the sport picked back up. Then, instead of the once a week events across different cities as normal, all of the May-June 2020 events were held in Salt Lake City, Utah, and some events were held on weekdays in order to finish the season in a timely manner. In 2021, the season returned to a similar window for a regular schedule between January to May. However, they followed a similar model where the races were held in a limited number of venues with races occurring on weekends and mid-week on several occasions. There were only two events remaining at the time of publication.
