Information

– Where in the world is Argentina? It is in South America and has a population of 41 million! The MXGP contingent are three hours behind the United Kingdom, four hours behind mainland Europe and four ahead of Southern California. The timetable above is based on local time, so adjust it accordingly.

Tim Gajser is facing a deficit of twelve points to Tony Cairoli (Honda Racing Corporation)

– Rain has battered the MXGP series thus far this year. The Grand Prix of Indonesia was a washout, obviously, and it even started raining in the desert! It'll be around thirty-two degrees and sunny all weekend at Neuquen, however, so everything should be perfect.

– You, the fans, can feel more immersed in the action this year, thanks to Fox MX Manager. The fantasy game, which is based around the FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time, allows you to be a team manager and sign riders that fit into your large budget. Great prizes are available at each stop, like signed jerseys and tickets to the Motocross of Nations! You will also find a guide to round three of the game here.

– How can you watch the action as it happens this year? A comprehensive television guide will be available soon, but MXGP-TV is a great alternative. The online system, which requires you to pay a small fee, also streams the qualifying races each week!

– The MX Vice team have not made it to the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina, unfortunately, and you can read more about that on this link. With that in mind, our live updates will not be in action for the first time in more than two years.
