The eighth round of the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship, the Grand Prix of Turkey, is underway at the spectacular venue of Afyonkarahisar. The WMX and EMX Open riders are opening the race programme with on-track action that is taking place today (September 04). MXGP of Turkey results, specific to those support classes, are available on this in an easy-to-view fashion.

It may surprise some to see that a lot of WMX riders have travelled to compete in Turkey. The EMX Open class, on the other hand, is struggling for attendance. There are 14 guys racing in the category today and eight of those are Turkish locals. There is quite a difference in speed, as evident in the results below. One could argue that this indeed the purpose of the class though – to give the best locals a chance to compete on the world stage without lessening the quality of the MXGP and MX2 classes.
