ISRL is building a mega rider pool of athletes from around the world.”

Rugved Barguje, 3-time Indian National SX Champion, said, “The inaugural season of CEAT ISRL was unforgettable. I experienced different terrains and demanding weather conditions, with Bangalore being particularly tough due to its soil. The races in all cities were thrilling, and the crowd support was phenomenal. The organizers did an excellent job, transforming Supercross in India. Riding on a proper Supercross track was a dream come true. I am excited for Season 2 of CEAT ISRL.”

Jordi Tixier, World Champion MX2 (2014), added, “The first season of CEAT ISRL was excellent. I didn’t expect it to be that good. I really enjoyed the people, the track, and the fans. I was surprised by how well the organizers did. They listened to the riders, improving race by race, and we saw the difference between Pune and Bangalore. The fans were awesome, and it was great to see the Indian people’s passion for Supercross. The organizers were fantastic, constantly improving. Season 01 was unforgettable, and I’m super excited to be back for Season 02. Looking forward to more memories!”

Brendan Sipple who raced for Reise Motosports said, – “Season 1 of CEAT ISRL was unforgettable, and I feel blessed to have taken part. The tracks were amazing, the racing was awesome, and the fans were crazy. The teams and organization were fantastic, working hard to ensure we had everything we needed and that the tracks were perfect. I’m very excited for Season 02 and can’t wait to see what they have in store. I look forward to visiting new cities, racing for supportive teams, and watching Supercross grow in India. Can’t wait to come back.”
