MUCH MORE TO MOTOCROSS THAN JUST RACING

With the current pause in the various FIM Motocross World Championships due to the ongoing Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the FIM and MXGP Promoter Infront Moto Racing have taken the opportunity to create a series of informative videos that shares important information and provides a unique behind the scenes insight to the sport.

The short films showcase the role of the FIM Motocross Commission and the national federations, plus illustrate how FIM volunteers can progress to becoming FIM Officials with the correct training and experience. Whilst often unseen, the team of technical and administrative staff play a key part in ensuring the safety of riders, and in maintaining the integrity of fairness of the championship. Watch and learn as the riders go through the relevant processes before being allowed to head out on track.


Antonio Alia Portela – Director of the FIM Motocross Commission (CMS) explained the main purpose of the videos. “As we all prepare to go racing again in the coming months, we felt it was a good moment to show the work of the FIM, the national federations, Infront Moto Racing staff, FIM Officials and volunteers and the important role that they play in delivering our sport at the highest level. Safety has become a critical focus for the FIM in more recent years and especially in motocross where the riders are pushing themselves to the limit. We are sure that riders both amateur and professional can learn something from these short films. We would like to thank our promoter Infront Moto Racing for producing and supporting us with these educational videos.”


David Luongo – Infront Moto Racing CEO added. “Safety has always been our top priority and through the past years, the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship has always been a pioneer in this subject. Alongside our colleagues at the FIM and the national federations, our staff take safety as their main focus, starting from the track design and preparation of the event and ensuring that all the administration and technical procedures are completed correct. The second video will provide an in-depth insight into rider safety equipment. We have been pleased to collaborate with the FIM to produce these informative films.”

Please find enclosed the Press Release / FIM MXGP/MX2/ Women’s Motocross World Championships 2020 Calendar UPDATE 12 JUNE.

MXGP of China Cancelled
FIM and Infront Moto Racing regret to announce that the 2020 MXGP of China has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The much-anticipated Chinese Grand Prix will however make a return to the MXGP racing calendar next season, with the Chinese Federation and H&H Sports Protection Group LTD committed to hosting fantastic events from 2021 onwards.

Additionally, the MXGP of Russia will also be moved from 2nd August to a later date in October / November, with the confirmed scheduling of this event to be announced at a later date based on the evolution of the pandemic and the associated and updated travel conditions that may apply at this time.

Infront Moto Racing, along with the FIM and the FIM Europe, is working closely with the local governments, national federations and the local organisers on a daily basis to have a final calendar in the coming weeks to continue the much awaited 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Infront Moto Racing’s goal is to hold between 10-12 events, these are set to take place in Europe between the middle of August and the end of October, including the best off road event of the year, the Monster Energy FIM Motocross World Championship, which will be held in Ernée, France on 26th / 27th September. Then the plan is to schedule further events between November and the beginning of December, again following the evolution of the pandemic, to allow the 2020 MXGP Calendar to feature the longer distance stops including selected overseas events.

The European rounds of the MXGP/MX2 World Championships and the European Championships will be announced by the end of June. We thank all parties for your continued patience and we look forward to making a return to racing at the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship very soon.
