Following word the Team USA would not be participating and the attempted relocation of the 2020 FIM Motocross of Nations from France to the UK as part of the MXGP season comes the announcement that the “Olympics Of Motocross” will not be taking place. “Infront Moto Racing and the FIM regret to inform that the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations scheduled to take place on 25-27 September in Matterley Basin, Great Britain, has been cancelled,” a statement confirmed.
“Despite all the efforts by the local organizer and Infront Moto Racing, there is no other viable option but to cancel the 2020 edition of MXoN due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Additionally, information from nearly all of the non-European teams who normally attend this event is that due to COVID-19, travel restrictions and quarantine protocols, they will not be able to take part in this year’s event.
“Taking all these factors into consideration and given the prestigious profile of the event, Infront Moto Racing and the FIM have decided to cancel the event.” Consequently, the MXGP of Winchester in Matterley Basin (Great Britain) to be held on the same weekend has also been cancelled. “Infront Moto Racing and the FIM would like to thank the National Federations, organizers, the manufacturers, partners, riders, teams and fans for their cooperation, patience, understanding and support.”
