The O2 became the Arena for indoor motocross, the place to be on a Monster Energy Pit Girls cold and wet January evening. A massive purpose built dirt track was put together for this one night event, kicking off the 1st of a 4 round Arenacross UK series, which ends in Liverpool on 10th February.

With the show starting at 7pm, the paying public could not have been disappointed with three and a half hours of spectacular non-stop action! Starting off with race 1 in the pro class,  followed by a further 9 races from the 65's, 85 small wheels, 85 big wheels, rookies and pro's.

The action didn't stop there, with 3 FMX displays throughout the night.
