Following on from the recently-announced MXGP of Hong Kong and the MXGP of China, Youthstream has proudly released the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship provisional calendar.
The season-opening venue for the 2019 season has yet to be announced, but will take place towards the end of February and will be followed by MXGP’s return to Argentina.
After the early “fly away” (outside Europe) trip, MXGP will return to Great Britain’s Matterley Basin circuit, near Winchester, then head straight to Valkenswaard for the MXGP of the Netherlands, then continue south to the MXGP of Trentino at Pietramurata.
The teams will then prepare for the second “fly away” trip with back to back races in the massive Asian market, at the MXGP of Hong Kong and the MXGP of China on Wednesday, May 1. Marking its third successive year on the calendar is the MXGP of Russia at Orlyonok along the coast of the Black Sea.
From Russia the championship will return to the West for the MXGP of Latvia, Germany, France, and Lombardia. After nearly two months in Europe MXGP will then set sail for Indonesia’s Pangkal Pinang and Semarang for the MXGP of Indonesia and Asia respectively.
Continuing back into Europe the series will make its way to the ever familiar MXGP of Czech Republic in Loket and the MXGP of Belgium in Lommel before heading to the MXGP of Turkey in Afyonkarahisar.
The final three rounds to complete the 20-round season will be the MXGP of Switzerland in Frauenfeld-Gachnang, the MXGP of Portugal in Agueda, and the MXGP of Italy at Imola hosting the season finale for its second year in a row.
The Dutch community will not only see the MXGP of the Netherlands in 2019 but also the return of the biggest event of the year to European soil, the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in Assen on September 29.
The new season will be full of action and racing on a global scale again making the FIM Motocross World Championship the premier motocross series on the planet.
