The owner of the exclusive promotional worldwide rights of the FIM Motocross World Championships Infront Moto Racing and the event organiser Lahti Events Ltd have decided to reschedule the MX World Championships held in Finland to next year.

 In addition to MXGP, KymiRing circuit was also scheduled to run races in MX2, EMX250, EMX125 and EMX 2t on 22-23. August 2020.

 According to the organisers the regulated past months have affected the event industry greatly. Together with Finland’s border and other restrictions, it is impossible to get spectators or all of the competitors abroad to the MXGP in Finland 2020.

 –       Even though the epidemic situation in Finland has calmed down, the situation with international sporting events remains unfortunately still the same. In this situation, health of the people takes precedence over everything else, states MXGP Finland’s Project Director Riia Martinoja.

 –       We have operated in close cooperation with Infront Moto Racing as well as FIM. Motocross World Championships will arrive to Finland next year, says Martinoja.

 According to the three-yearcontract, the first World Championships in Finland will be held in 2021. Collaboration continues until 2023.

 -       Despite the challenging times we are living with the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused the cancellation of the MXGP of Finland this year, we are very proud to announce that our collaboration with KymiRing and all the organizing team of Lahti Events will be confirmed until 2023. This means that the MXGP World Championship will be established for the next 3 years in Finland. We cannot wait for 2021 when the MXGP will finally be back to Finland for a very top class event. I want to thank the local organizer Lahti Events and the Finnish Federation for their great support and determination." thanks Infront Moto Racing CEO David Luongo.
