Those contesting the FIM Motocross World Championship are braced to tackle the gnarliest Grand Prix of the year, as the Belgian event is upon us. Lommel is notoriously tough on both man and machine, hence why some are so uncomfortable in the conditions and unique results emerge. That's why you simply cannot miss the action and must pay attention to the information provided in this regular feature.
