Pro Motocross Championship Welcomes Triumph Motorcycles as Newest Manufacturer Partner and Competitor

Iconic British Marque Set to Embark
on Inaugural Outdoor Season with TF 250-X

MORGANTOWN, WV – April 24, 2024 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – MX Sports Pro Racing, Inc., welcomes Triumph Motorcycles as the newest manufacturer partner and competitor of the Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing. The iconic British marque will embark on its inaugural summer campaign for the 2024 season with a two-rider lineup piloting the brand-new TF 250-X motorcycle under the Triumph Racing banner.
