In total, seven new weekly online segments will debut at the season-opening race in Anaheim making SupercrossOnline.com the most in-demand website for Monster Energy Supercross digital coverage.

Leading the way for each video feature in 2012 will be co-hosts Jim Holley, a familiar name to supercross fans all over the world and a Supercross LIVE! veteran, and Lauren Abraham, the newest face of the sport. “Hollywood” Holley was a successful pro supercross rider in the 1980’s, ultimately becoming the first World Supercross Champion in 1985, while also capturing a pair of Ultracross titles in 1988 and 1989. Following his racing career, Holley became a Hollywood stuntman, with film credits such as The Italian Job and Wild Hogs.

Following her career on the slopes, Abraham became a popular fitness model and has emerged as one of the newest figures in television hosting for many sports.

The Supercross LIVE! video content will be highlighted by five different exclusive online segments each Saturday in addition to two mid-week features. The Official Supercross LIVE! Pre-Show, Fueled by Monster Energy, will set the tone for each Saturday race day, bringing the audience the latest headlines from each Monster Energy Supercross stadium. Jim Holley will also scour the Monster Energy Pit Party throughout the morning and afternoon to bring viewers one-of-a-kind interviews on Behind the Scenes with Supercross LIVE! with videos being released throughout the day.

For any fans unable to attend a round of action in person, the new 2 Minutes on the Track feature will give fans at home a two-minute peek into how the riders look on the track during each session of timed practice for both the Supercross Class and Supercross Lites Class. This is a new never-available-before content element of Monster Energy Supercross, showcasing the drama that takes place on the track before the gate drops each night!

Once the race winners are crowned, Supercross LIVE! will keep the content coming with And on the Podium Tonight, Brought to you by Kawasaki. Following each evening’s main event, the top three finishers in the Supercross Class and Supercross Lites Class will share their insights on the night that was, and what helped them land on the podium. To wrap up each race of the season, the Official Supercross LIVE! Post-Show, Fueled by Monster Energy, will recap the action and offer in-depth analysis of what went down that night and what lies ahead in the coming week.
