Youthstream announced today that the 2016 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations presented by Fiat will air live in the U.S. and Canada on CBS Sports Network.
American and Canadian fans can view live coverage of the event in Maggiora, Italy, beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST (4:00 a.m. PST) on Sunday, September 25.
“With the Internet and social media covering virtually everything that happens on the planet in real time, we felt that the Monster Energy MXoN had to be broadcasted live on television in the United States and Canada”, says Youthstream Director of Corporate Relations Mr. Mario Marini, “as opposed to the regular MXGP season where we chose to air on a slightly delayed same-day basis to make it friendlier TV programming wise for the viewers in North America, the 2016 Monster Energy MXoN will get most fans of this region out of their beds on Sunday September 25. With a time difference of 6 to 9 hours, and even more if we count in the U.S. mid Pacific territories, the early wake-up call will be definitely worth the sacrifice as it’ll give the fans the privilege of watching Cooper Webb, Jason Anderson and Alex Martin live in action in their attempt to bring back the winner’s MXoN trophy to the U.S.”
