I guess we should be used to postponements, cancelations, more postponements, more cancelations, but this one hits close to the heart: The 2020 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations has been canceled.
After moving the event from Ernee, France, to Matterley Basin, Great Britain, Infront Moto Racing announced today that the event has been called off altogether.
“Infront Moto Racing have received information from nearly all of the non-European teams normally attending the event that due to COVID-19 complications of travel and quarantine protocols, they will not be able to take part in this year’s event.”
The U.S. and New Zealand had already announced they would not send teams and the event was scheduled to count for points toward the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship—which kind of cheapened it, anyway.
With the MXGP of Winchester planned to be held together with the MXoN, the GP event will now take place in Mantova (MXGP of Città di Mantova) featuring back-to-back MXGP races in Mantova scheduled to take place on September 30 and October 4.
