The 2013 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations will be aired on CBS Sports Network in both the U.S. and Canada on Sunday, September 29 at 3 p.m. (Eastern), according to Youthstream, the promoters of the event.
CBS Sports Network will showcase the “Olympics of Motocross” with a full three-hour show that will feature the event’s main races in their entirety, Youthstream says.
The 67th running of the nations-against-nations competition will be held in Teutschenthal, Germany with all eyes on front-runner Team USA and its team of Ryan Dungey, Justin Barcia and Eli Tomac. Team USA, which has won the event 22 times, will compete against the best riders from 40 other countries.
“This agreement with CBS Sports Network allows us to build even greater place and exposure in North America for the biggest motocross race on the planet and for Team USA,” said Mario Marini, Youthstream’s director of corporate relations. “We are thrilled with the passion CBS Sports Network has shared with Youthstream for this project, and we are very proud to provide U.S. and Canadian fans with comprehensive coverage at such a stunning Sunday afternoon time slot.”
CBS Sports Network is available across the country through local cable, video and telco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 221 and Dish Network Channel 158. For more information, including a full programming schedule and how to get CBS Sports Network, go to www.cbssportsnetwork.com.
