One would have been forgiven for thinking that the European supercross events that run at the end of the season, had the best shot at being held in normal circumstances, given that they are still around six months away. Arguably the second most popular event of that nature, Geneva in Switzerland, was cancelled earlier today though. Details are vague at this stage, but the following statement makes it sound as though it was the venue that pulled the plug rather than the promoter.
“In the current context, Palexpo SA has taken the decision to cancel the supercross that was to take place on December 4 and 5 2020.”
Justin Brayton was the winner of the race last year, narrowly edging out Martin Davalos on a tiebreak. American Joey Crown won the SX2 division with a convincing performance. The industry now awaits news from the biggest off-season event in Europe, the Paris SX, which is scheduled to take place the weekend before the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship finale in Argentina.
