Please find enclosed the Press Release / FIM MXGP/MX2/ Women’s Motocross World Championships 2020 Calendar UPDATE 12 MAY.
The FIM and Infront Moto Racing would like to confirm the following changes to the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship racing calendar.
With the current COVID-19 pandemic, many countries remain in lockdown and are forbidden to host mass gatherings. As a result of these measures being put in place in order to preserve the safety of the public, the amendments below have been unavoidable.
Some events in July have been postponed or cancelled, as such the calendar changes are as follows; The MXGP of Russia, that was scheduled to take place on 4-5 July, will now move to 1- 2 August, additionally the MXGP of Latvia that was due to take place on 11-12 July will now take place on the 8-9 August at the Kegums circuit.
This means that the Monster Energy MXGP of Belgium and the MXGP of Germany due to take place on these dates, will now be rescheduled. The MXGP of Belgium has been moved to 24 –25 October, meanwhile the date for the German GP, along with the MXGP of Czech Republic and the MXGP of Emilia Romagna (Imola), that will also see a change of date, remains as TBA at this time and will also be announced soon.
Unfortunately, certain events will no longer be able to take place. These include the MXGP of Italy in Maggiora, which was scheduled for 18-19 July, as well as the MXGP of France in St. Jean d’Angely originally planned on 27-28 June with both events cancelled for the 2020 season.
However, on a positive note French fans along with other will still be able to enjoy the best off road event in the world with the epic Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations set to take place on the 26-27 September at the popular Ernée circuit.
Further information on the FIM Junior World Championship originally scheduled in Megalopolis, Greece on 8–9 August, will be coming soon.
Infront Moto Racing would like to thank the FIM, FIM Europe as well as all the National Federations and the local organisers for their support and cooperation during this difficult time.
We would also like to thank everyone for their understanding during this period, as we continue to work hard to preserve as much of the 2020 championship as possible taking into consideration and respecting all protocols in place and monitoring all national announcements day-by-day in order to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
