It has been five years since the Grand Prix contingent last hit Sevlievo, one of the oldest tracks on the calendar, so it is going to be exciting to see what unfolds over the next two days. All of the information that you need to follow that action is below.

Information

– The MX Vice team are already at Sevlievo for the Grand Prix of Bulgaria 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 seventeen of the FIM Motocross World Championship. MX Vice will be your hub from this point on.

– Those of us in Bulgaria are two hours ahead of the United Kingdom and an hour ahead of mainland Europe. Fans in Southern California are ten hours behind, which is fairly normal, and then Australian residents in Sydney are seven 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 will be great! It is not going to be another Sevlievo mudder, like ten years ago, as blue skies are forecast for the entire weekend. Temperatures are going to hover around thirty-two and thirty-three degrees. It is going to be a hot one!
