Legendary motocross rider Ricky Carmichael is gearing up for the Australian Open of Supercross alongside current AMA star Cooper Webb at the Allphones Arena in Sydney's Olympic Park on the 28-29 November.

Carmichael's record speaks for itself: 15 world titles, ten in motocross and five in supercross, as he preapres to face off against the best talents in the AMA world supercross down under. The event also sets up a head-to-head match between Carmichael and two-time world champion Chad Reed in a special one-off showdown.

“I'm pumped to be heading to Sydney to ride at the AUS-X Open in front of a packed out Aussie crowd, as well as alongside Australia's greatest rider in Chad Reed,” Carmichael said. “The track looks insane and the fans are going to be in for an awesome show. It will be really cool to be apart of it across both days.”

Webb, who turned pro in 2013 and has gone on to claim the 2014 AMA Supercross Rookie of the Year title before dominating in this season's West Coast Supercross championship, will also take on Reed and Australia's top supercross riders in Sydney and the 19-year-old from North Carolina is relishing the challenge on taking on the Aussies.

“I'm pumped to be heading to Sydney this weekend to race against Chad and the rest of the Aussie riders, in what looks like an awesome stadium track setup,” Webb said. “I've never travelled as far as Australia before so I'm looking forward to checking out the sights in Sydney, but more so putting on a huge show for the crowd and hopefully walking away with the winner's trophy.

“It's going to be hot in Sydney and the Aussie riders race hard, so expect some intense battles and bar banging this weekend!”

Riders will battle for over $150,000 in prize money across the Supercross and Freestyle Motocross 'Best Trick' disciplines at the 2015 AUS-X Open, with the 'Best Trick' element the only one in the world in this year.

Aus-X Open organisers are still awaiting any formal confirmation from James Stewart on his participation at the event but are trying their best to secure the star.
