The Hub: MXGP of Switzerland

The FIM Motocross World Championship calendar has been quite forgiving over the last month, as there have been frequent breaks. The Grand Prix of Switzerland, which will take place this weekend, will be the start of an intense three-week span though, as riders will head to Bulgaria next weekend and then Turkey. This portion of the calendar should help determine how some of the battles in both classes will unfold, hence why it is important to follow the action.

Information

– The MX Vice team are already at Frauenfeld-Gachnang for the Swiss Grand Prix and will be covering the event extensively from this point on. There will be reports, analysis, opinions, interviews, images, podcasts, videos and much more across the various different channels. Follow motocrossvice on Twitter and mxvice on Instagram for more from round sixteen of the FIM Motocross World ChampionshipMX Vice will be your hub from this point on.

– Those of us in Switzerland are an hour ahead of the United Kingdom at this point. Fans in Southern California are nine hours behind, which is fairly normal, and then Australian residents in Sydney are eight hours ahead. Please adjust the timetable above accordingly, as it is based on the local time.

– Seeing as the MX Vice team are at the track and have a better look at the action than what you will get on your television, there will be live updates on this website all-weekend long. Connection should not be too much of a problem so, with that in mind, load up this page now and prepare to visit it frequently across the weekend.

– There is a way to feel closer to the action and also stay sat on your couch. It is amazing! Fantasy MX Manager is based around the FIM Motocross World Championship for the second year in succession and offers fans the chance to win some incredible prizes. 24MX have put up thousands of pounds in vouchers and it is even free to enter. It is possible to enter for the first time this weekend and immediately win a prize.

– The weather this weekend is a little unpredictable. It was supposed to rain today, Friday, but instead there are bright blue skies and sunshine. Rain is also forecast for tomorrow, but it remains to be seen if it will actually happen. It would actually help the track for the motos on Sunday, which are expected to be held in humid conditions, as that precipitation would create various lines and make the layout more technical.
