MXGP | Updated 2021 Calendar, Double & Triple Headers To Fulfill Season
InFront Moto Racing has released their latest revision for the 2021 Monster Energy FIM Motocross World Championship, and as expected, events at the end of the season in Argentina, Indonesia, and Portugal have been cancelled and replaced with races in Italy. To fulfill the 18-race schedule, the series will run double and triple-header events at the popular Trentino and Mantova tracks at the very end of the season, which will now run into early November.
The series will continue as planned over the next few weeks, with the 2021 MXGP of Sardegna on the island of Riola Sardo running on September 19, the 2021 MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal on October 3, the 2021 MXGP of France at Lacapelle-Marival on October 10, and the 2021 MXGP of Spain at Xanadu-Arroyomolinos on October 17. Surprisingly, the 2021 Motocross of Nations is still scheduled to take place in the middle of this run, with the international event set for September 26 in Mantova, Italy.
The last five rounds of 2021 are the key events to the schedule change. The mountainside Trentino track will host three races in one week’s time, starting with the 2021 MXGP of Trentino on October 24 (a Sunday), the 2021 MXGP of Pietramurata on October 27 (a Wednesday), and the MXGP of Garda on October 31 (a Sunday). Immediately after that, the series will return to the sand track in Mantova for the 2021 MXGP of Lombardia on November 7 (a Sunday) and the 2021 MXGP of Citta’Di Mantova on November 10 (a Wednesday). This will be the first time that the MXGP series has concluded its championship in the middle of the week.
Infront Moto Racing would like to inform of the changes that have been applied to the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship calendar.
There have been unavoidable updates to the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, but Infront Moto Racing together with the FIM, the FIM Europe and all the organisers have been working hard to maintain a full racing calendar for one of the most competitive seasons of MXGP.
As a results, the MXGP of Portugal that was originally scheduled to take place on the 23-24 of October and the overseas races, MXGP of Argentina, MXGP of Asia and MXGP of Bali will no longer take place this year, but they will all be postponed to 2022 and instead will be substituted by a triple-header in Pietramurata with the MXGP of Trentino (23-24 October), MXGP of Pietramurata (26-27 October) and MXGP of Garda (30-31 October) and two events in Mantova for the MXGP of Lombardia (6-7 November) and MXGP of Città di Mantova (9-10 November).
Following the success of last year’s triple GP in Trentino, there is no doubt that this season the trio of races will once again deliver some incredible racing as we draw this exciting season to a close while MXGP will return to Lombardia following the eagerly anticipated Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations to crown the Motocross World and European.
In addition, Infront Moto Racing regrets to inform that this year’s FIM-Europe Motocross of European Nations will not go ahead as originally planned and will be postponed to 2022 at a venue to be announced soon.
The 2021 edition of the MXoEN was due to take place in Riola Sardo, Italy, later this season, though the tough decision was made to push back the event by a year. Infront Moto Racing and FIM Europe look forward to a fantastic edition of the Motocross of European Nations in 2022. More info on the venue that will host the 2022 event will be shared soon.
IMR would like to thank you all for your understanding in this difficult situation as the aim is to present the most complete FIM Motocross World Championship season of racing with some incredible action of MXGP and MX2 stars who continue their battle for the title.
