We are proud to announce that with the full backing of Yamaha Racing Heritage Club and Crescent Yamaha, multiple world champion Alessio “Chicco” Chiodi will be racing at this year’s 2024 VMXdN. The sensational motocross event will be held at Foxhill, the iconic Wiltshire Grand Prix circuit over August bank holiday weekend, between 22nd to 26th. Words: Press Release

Chicco will return to the hillside amphitheatre that he was so successful on in his stellar career, on route to his three world titles in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

He will be racing a Yamaha YZ 250, but in which class is yet to be decided. Last time he won the +50 class with ease, to the sold-out crowd showing he has lost none of his trademark smooth, yet somehow aggressive riding style. The +50 class for 2024 is already looking full and so he could line up in more than one class, much like his old sparring partner Mike Brown.

The plan at present is for Chicco to be on a 2002 YZ250, built by DocWob in the “main” VMXdN class, but we will keep you updated as we hear more team news.

VMXdN Foxhill immediately established itself as the “must go” event on the British and indeed world MX calendar, the four-day festival which celebrates all wonderful things from the 2-stroke Grand Prix racing of the 90s and 00s era, is an event not to be missed. Not only is there epic racing in every class but the Friday “Show’N’Shine” bike show is a highlight, not to mention the social aspect with the packed beer tent is not to be missed (don’t worry, they are removing the sides in 2024).

Race entries were sold out in seconds, and getting into the race is deemed to be a “golden ticket”! In 2023, camping passes for the event sold out, and ticket sales are well above last year, so this could well be the first outdoor MX event to be sold out before the gates open. Ensure you book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets for the four-day festival of 90’s and 00’s two stroke motocross racing are available from  https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/vmxdn-foxhill-2024-tickets-753835631667
