          ATV Motocross HoleshotThe world’s top ATV motocross athletes are back in action this weekend as the 2013 Mtn. Dew ATV Motocross National Championship kicks off at Aonia Pass MX Park in Washington, Ga.

          The 2013 ATVMX Pro lineup boasts one of the most stacked fields in recent history with 24 riders expected to line up at the opening round of racing, including defending champion Chad Wienen (Wienen Motorsports/SSi/Walsh/Yamaha presented by Maxxis Tires and Team Vollmer). With several veteran riders, past champions and new riders making their debut into the pro class, the chase for the 2013 championship title will be one to follow. Two-time champ and ATVMX veteran John Natalie contested Wienen for the championship in 2012 but was left short and finished second overall in the points chase. This season Natalie will be riding a MotoSport.com/Motoworks/DWT machine and looking to reclaim that number one plate.
