A bit more than 1 month before the start of the FIM Motocross World Championship we are pleased to release a provisional EMX125 Presented by FMF Racing and WMX entry lists for the MXGP of Great Britain!
The European 125cc Championship and the Women’s World Championship will be joining the MXGP and MX2 riders at Matterley Basin as we kick off the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship in Winchester, Great Britain on February the 29th and March the 1st.
The provisional entry list of the EMX125 class is looking impressive with a total of 84 entries looking to qualify for the main races on Saturday and Sunday. Of course, with only 40 available gates, the competition is bound to be fierce. Looking for a good start this season will be Liam Everts, who after finishing 8th in the Championship in 2019 will be keen to improve upon his previous result and challenge for the title.
Also hoping for a good start and debut will be the Italian, Marchetti Racing Team’s Valerio Lata. In 2019, Lata was crowned the EMX85 Junior World Champion and this season will see him move up into the EMX125 category. And previous EMX85 Junior World Champion (2017), Eddie Jay Wade, will also be looking to make a good impression in front of his home crowd. Another local star that will line-up in the fierce youth class is Joel Rizzi. Rizzi finished 13th overall, last season and often challenged for the top 3, so it will be interesting to see what he can do in 2020.
Meanwhile, in the Women’s World Championship, Courtney Duncan will be hoping to defend her title, while Larissa Papenmeier, Nancy Van de Ven and Amadine Verstappen are sure to put on the challenge. Of course, let’s not forget that 2020 will see the return of the 6-time WMX World Champion, Kiara Fontanesi, who missed the 2019 season, as she prepared for the arrival of her baby daughter, Skyler. Despite that, she has been working hard all off-season and is another rider that we can expect to see mixing it up at the front of the field at Matterley Basin.
The line-ups for the EMX125 and WMX classes are looking extremely strong and it is sure to be a great weekend of racing as we kick things off for the 2020 MXGP season.
