“Millions play Mad Skills Motocross 2 each month,” says Turborilla CEO Tobias Andersson, “And after the successful weekly competitions we’ve held over the years, we’re excited to hold our first World Championship. We intend to make Mad Skills Motocross 2 one of the leading Esports titles in the world.”

Top Mad Skills Motocross 2 players win as much as $6,000 USD monthly by playing Esports tournaments and challenges in the game. In 2016, players have won over $790,000 USD in Esports contests so far, making Mad Skills Motocross 2 the #1 mobile Esports game in the world when it comes to player winnings (according to public data on esportearnings.com).

The World Championship will feature a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000 USD, but the game’s community will be able to increase this amount. Ten percent of all Esports money spent by players in the game during the qualifier will be added to the prize pool.
