Unfortunate news for the motocross world with the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations which were scheduled for the UK on September 25th to 27th have now been cancelled. Read the statement below from the FIM.
Infront Moto Racing and the #FIM regret to inform that the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations scheduled to take place on 25–27 September in Matterley Basin, Great Britain 🇬🇧, has been cancelled.
Despite all the efforts by the local organiser (Steve Dixon) and Infront Moto Racing, there is no other viable option but to cancel the 2020 edition of MXoN due to the Coronavirus disease (#COVID19) pandemic.
Additionally, information from nearly all of the non-European teams who normally attend this event is that due to COVID-19, travel restrictions and quarantine protocols, they will not be able to take part in this year’s event.
Taking all these factors into consideration and given the prestigious profile of the event, Infront Moto Racing and the FIM have decided to cancel the event and look forward to an exceptional Monster Energy FIM #MXoN in 2021!
Consequently, the MXGP of Winchester in Matterley Basin (Great Britain) to be held on the same weekend has also been cancelled. This event will now be replaced by the Grand Prix of the Città di Mantova, in Mantova 🇮🇹, to be held on 30 September.
Infront Moto Racing and the FIM would like to thank the National Federations, organisers, the manufacturers, partners, riders, teams and fans for their cooperation, patience, understanding and support.
