Teutschenthal in the former East Germany is a traditional stop on the MXGP calendar and it may once again host the Motocross of Nations too.
The circuit is adored by the thousands of fans that turn up each and every year to watch the world’s fastest motocross riders go bar-to-bar in the premier motocross series, the FIM Motocross World Championship.
Last weekend the 2015 MXGP of Germany was held on that very circuit.
The event was a huge success and gave the fans, not only those that turned up but also those who tune in via the internet or television from all over the world, all the drama and action you would expect from the motocross world championship just as it did for the epic 2013 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations.
Speaking of MXoN, interest for the 2018 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations was expressed.
The President of MCS Teutschenthal, Mr. Joachim Jahnke, ADAC’s Head of the Motorcycling Division, Mr. Dieter Porsch, and the President of Youthstream, Mr. Giuseppe Luongo, met during the MXGP of Germany and have positively discussed the organisation of the FIM Motocross of Nations to be held in Germany, Teutschenthal in 2018.
After the success of the 2013 edition, which was definitely one of the most anticipated events ever in the history of motocross as Team Germany headed into the event in hopes of defending the crown on home turf, the prospect of yet another at that same circuit is exciting.
