Episode #1 of the racing/reality show, “ATV-24/7,” is set to air Saturday, May 14, on the Versus television network at 4:30 p.m. EST. Now in its second year, each half-hour program follows professional and amateur ATV racers – in real time -- as they prepare for and compete in the 2011 AMA ATV Motocross
Viewers and fans can expect even more racing and behind-the-scenes drama this year, say the producers. “The moto coverage now stretches over two acts,” notes Executive Producer, Carey Bohn. “And with so many new competitors vying for the championship – first time pros, past champions and returning front-runners – viewers will get a dose of racing reality from many camps.”
“ATV-24/7” will chronicle seven rounds of the AMA ATV Motocross Championship as part of “Racer TV,” which will cover the four additional ATV championship races. “Racer TV” is a 52-week program block on the Versus network, featuring the best of off-road racing, including the GNCC series, the RedBull/ AMA Amateur National Motocross, the Amsoil Championship Snocross Series. Viewers without access to the Versus network will still be able to watch the episodes on www.atv247.com
