The Penrite ProMX Championships round at Wodonga, in Victoria, originally set for July 25, has been put on ice and, along with all the other riders, Kiwi hero Maximus Purvis, the only New Zealander contesting the series this season, will therefore have to wait to continue their respective title bids.
This decision has been made due to the continued complications of state government COVID-19 restrictions which have resulted from the ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks across Australia including South East Queensland and Greater Sydney.
The postponement decision has not been made lightly, as enforced border restrictions have affected a number of riders and teams, but more significantly they affect the ability to produce the ProMX Live TV production that is based from Greater Sydney.
ProMX Management has made the decision to provide advance notification to riders and teams during this highly complicated time, after NSW Government recently extended its Greater Sydney lockdown for a further 7 days
The uncertainty surrounding the ongoing border regulation requirements impact the events ability to operate as well as riders, teams, partners, officials, volunteers and fans to attend the event.
ProMX Management Team and the host club, Albury-Wodonga MCC will now work closely to review a potential new date the Penrite ProMX Championship, presented by AMX Superstores.
