THE 2012 MX Nationals will roar into life at the picturesque Green Park Conondale Motocross Circuit on Sunday, April 1.

Round one of this Australian Championship returns to Conondale, a high-speed, natural terrain circuit many rate as the best in Australia, after a four year hiatus.

The 2012 series promises to be the most hotly contested in many years with pro riders returning from the USA and Europe to compete, including reigning British Champion Brad Anderson, World Championship contender Josh Coppins and former Aussie champ Dan Reardon.

Reigning Australian champion Jay Marmont, has switched to team Kawasaki for the new season and all the front runners are fit and rearing to go for the opening round.

The Sunshine Coast Motor Cycle Club has gone all out with track preparation building several massive new jumps which will test the riders and thrill the spectators.

Racing starts at 9am on Sunday morning and the event will be catered with a bar in place.

Admission is $30 for adults and $15 for children under 15. Green Park is located 16km along Maleny- Kenilworth Road with signage from Maleny and Kenilworth.
