Unfortunately, following a tremendous effort by all involved, the 2021 Dutch Masters of Motocross has been cancelled, just like in 2020. The Dutch Masters was initially scheduled to start in the middle of April, but COVID-19 forced that to change and the first round was then pinned for June 05 with a handful of TBA dates in pursuit.
Rumours at the beginning of this month indicated that the promoters were actually hoping to bring the start of the season to the middle of May, but that obviously hasn’t come to fruition. The Dutch Masters released the following statement that confirms the cancellation. It’s also hinted that big things are in the works for next year – one would think that a live stream is going to be involved.
“We have kept hope alive for a long time, but we cannot help but cancel the 2021 Dutch Masters of Motocross. The COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible to put up a full-fledged DMoMX competition.
“Stichting Circuit Oldebroek, MC Hamac Harfsen, Motorclub Oss, Macro Rhenen and Motorsportpark Gelderland Midden, KNMV, sponsors and other partners have done everything possible to get to a series of great events. Unfortunately, for the second year in a row, the applicable corona measures are throwing soot in the food. It’s no different.
“In the meantime we look forward to the start of the KNMV ONK Motocross and of course the performance of the many other DMoMX riders in the EC and World Cup! For Dutch Masters of Motocross next year, there are great plans to make. Therefore keep following us, because there will be beautiful things.”
