Infront Moto Racing just announced that the 2020 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship has been cancelled. Although this is bitterly disappointing, it is undoubtedly the right decision. Official communication is below.
(MONACO) Principality of Monaco – It is with great regret that Infront Moto Racing and the FIM must inform the 2020 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship, originally scheduled to take place on August 08/09 in Megalopolis, Greece, will not be taking place this year.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the global restrictions put in place for safety reasons, many of the 2020 events have been forced to be rescheduled to a later date.
Regarding the FIM 85cc and 125cc Junior Motocross World Championships and the FIM 65cc Junior Motocross World Cup organised for young riders from all over the world, the event could not be rescheduled beyond the end of August, as many of the riders aged between 10-17 years old will be back at school/college, and it was considered that their education remains the absolute priority.
We look forward to 2021 when we will see the return of the highly anticipated youth event. We would like to thank the FIM, the local organiser, as well as all participants and our fans for their continued support during this difficult period.
