The FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN) is a highlight of every riders calendar around the world. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Australia will not be competing this year.

MXoN is to be held on September 25 and 26, in Italy, however with border restrictions, stringent international travel restrictions which require special exemptions, vaccine and quarantine requirements in Italy and Australia, vaccine passports as well as contractual commitments of candidates and their teams, it is not possible to send a team.

With constant COVID-19 legislative changes both here in Australia and Europe it is not feasible, to have an Australian team participate.

“With constant COVID-19 legislative changes both here in Australia and Europe it is not feasible, to have an Australian team participate.”

Its disappointing as this is an event the Australian motocross fans and industry look forward to, and MA say they believed they could have fielded a very strong team this year, however the global pandemic has made the mission to send a team impossible. Motorcycling Australia say they look forward to participating in the 2022 event.
