Now that the 2019 MXGP Season is running into the second half, FIM Europe and Youthstream have released the 2020 FIM Motocross European Championships Provisional Calendar for classes EMX125, EMX250, EMX2T and EMX Open.

From 2020 the EMX Open Championship will be combined with MXGP/MX2 events within Europe. There will be 6 events counting towards the championship standings in the EMX Open Championship, all at MXGP/MX2 events similar to and in the same format as the EMX125, EMX250 and EMX2T championships. From 2020 and onwards the EMX Open championship will be open to riders from 16 years old up to 50 years old on motorcycles from 175cc up to 450cc, for both 2strokes and 4strokes.

“I’m extremely happy with this initiative from Youthstream,” stated the Motocross Commission chairman, Mr. Eddie Herd.

“I believe that this is a major step forward and a necessary advance for the EMX Open championship, that will become a very important championship within Europe, especially for riders who have exceeded the maximum age limit for EMX250 and MX2 and who are not quite at the level of MXGP.”

The Opening venue of the European season is The Netherlands in a location to be announced, then will be time for Trentino, an eagerly awaited return in Spain and then straight to Portugal.

In May the European Championships continue its trips to Latvia, Russia, Germany, France and Imola.

After a trip in Asia for MXGP, the European Championship continues to one of the old school venues of the calendar Loket in Czech Republic, followed by the sandy circuit of Lommel and the comeback of Switzerland after a year break.

13th round of the 2020 season is held in Sweden while the 14th stop of the calendar is taking place in the brand-new and recently announced Kymi Ring circuit in Iitti, Finland.

The final round of the 2020 season is set to be held in Turkey before the whole MXGP Paddock moves to France for the milestone of the Motocross season, the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations which will be back in Ernée after the big success of its last edition back in 2015.

There’s one big thing of note that will be glaring for British motocross fans – the absence of the British Grand Prix. Unless it fills the TBA slot in February, which seems unlikely.

Update August 16, 17:00 BST: The MXGP 2020 calendar has been updated. The details below will be updated if and when the FIM/Youthstream make changes.
