The 25-year-old American rider had an incredible rookie season in the premier 450SX1 class of the 2019 World Championship and will has confirmed he will compete in both Auckland and Melbourne in the S-X Open Auckland and AUS-X Open Melbourne which are Rounds 4 and 5 of the Australian Supercross Championship.
“I can’t wait to head Down Under for the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Melbourne. The calibre of riders that the event brings each year makes me so pumped to get out there and take it to the world’s best on Aussie soil,” Savatgy said.
“I think It’ll be tough in Auckland too, there are quite a few big names going over and I’m going to have to get everything dialled in straight away.
“Obviously, starts are huge and if you can get off the gate and put yourself in a position to win right away, that will go a long way against those guys.”
“It’ll be fast-paced and it’ll be full of action, exactly what the fans want!”
