Race Control: GP of Trentino

A guide to the fifth round.

A guide to the fifth round.

The extravagant circuit of Pietramurata is alive, as the Grand Prix of Trentino will play host to the fifth FIM Motocross World Championship round this weekend. A return to Europe is a curveball, in a sense, for the average fan, as there are more classes and more riders! That is why our regular ‘Race Control' feature is such a blessing.

Jeremy Seewer has a very small advantage in the MX2 class (Sean Ogden)


– A return to Europe means that great weather is, unfortunately, not a guarantee. It seems that we'll be able to experience the various different conditions this weekend, as rain is forecast for a lot of Saturday. Sunday, however, should be okay, which is what you really want!

– We are one hour ahead of the United Kingdom here in Italy. We are nine hours ahead of California also, but eight hours behind Sydney. The times listed above are based on the local time, so adjust it accordingly! We wouldn't want you to miss out on the action, would we?

Win a jersey from Tim Gajser on Fox MX Manager this week (Sean Ogden)

– How would you like to win a signed jersey from Tim Gajser? Yes, you read that right. Fox Head Europe are giving that away to the winner of Fox MX Manager this weekend, so you better sign up now. 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.

– 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. It is also worth checking out the MXGP-TV YouTube channel, we believe.

– The full MX Vice team are, of course, present this weekend and ready to provide interviews, updates, photos, videos, interview, opinions and much more! Stay tuned to this very site throughout the weekend. We promise that we will not disappoint.
