Pre-Entry Lists: Portugal

2022 FIM Motocross World Championship continues in Portugal, entry lists released.

The 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship will resume in Agueda, Portugal, this weekend. The iconic red dirt will play host to the fourth stop of the current campaign. A return to Europe has caused the MXGP and MX2 entry lists to grow significantly, although not everyone who is listed will actually be in action. There is a lot of additional information to consider – these notes will ensure that everyone has got a better understanding of what to expect on the first weekend in April.

  • Jeffrey Herlings is listed below, much like he was ahead of the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina. Herlings is not ready to race just yet though and is not expected to race for another month or so at least.
  • Romain Febvre is not expected to start riding again for another five weeks, so he will not join the MXGP series until June at the earliest. Things are not going quite as expected for the former world champ.
  • Kay de Wolf rode today, Wednesday, for the first time since his crash at the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina and his head was not an issue, so he is set to return at the upcoming Grand Prix of Portugal.

  • Isak Gifting broke his collarbone in moto two at the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina and rode for the first time today, Wednesday, so will be on track in Portugal. The collarbone was plated last week.
  • There was a chance that Kay Karssemakers would return at the Grand Prix of Portugal, but is more likely that the the Grand Prix of Latvia will mark his return from the scaphoid that he fractured in Italy.
  • A fractured wrist will sideline Gianluca Facchetti for the next couple of weeks, so he will not race at the Grand Prix of Portugal. Facchetti is also dealing with some fractured ribs, as well as the wrist injury.
  • Taylor Hammal of the Big Van World MTX Kawasaki team is listed in the MX2 division, but is still recovering from his troublesome wrist injury. It will take time before he is set for the world’s highest level.
