Due to the global outbreak of the Coronavirus, public safety of all involved has been put at the forefront which means certain events have been forced to be pushed back to a later date.
MXGP of France due to take place on May 9-10 will now be moved to the end of June and will go ahead in St.Jean d’Angely on June 27-28.
This change means that also the MXGP of Indonesia in Jakarta will now move from June to October 31/November 1.
Meanwhile the second round of the Indonesian trip will be held as the MXGP of Asia on November 7-8, whose location will be announced shortly.
These new updates of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship Calendar were possible thanks to the complete cooperation with the local organisers, sponsors, the national federations and the governments, along with the FIM and FIM Europe.
And we can see (in the graphic below) that the Motocross of Nations in France is still scheduled for September 27, BEFORE at least five of the rescheduled MXGP events, so how Coronavirus might impact on the MXoN is still to be determined.
