MXGP Academy

 

Since 2015 there has been a worldwide project active with various programs, in collaboration with Infront Moto Racing, the FIM and the local FMNs (Federation Motorsport National).

The aim is to help young athletes in Motocross through various programs such as educational programs, MX training and training camps.
These programs are there to help novice Motocross riders, but also advanced or talented athletes, with a good and constructive approach to their career. The diversity is large, and the educational part is crucial for future success.

 

The MXGP Academy faces the following two challenges:

·       Attracting as much youngsters as possible and from all over the world to choose Motocross as their sport activity.

·       Assisting young talented and passionate Motocross riders from all over the world to chase their dream to become a World Star Motocross rider. 
 

MXGP Academy weekend training: To meet these challenges the MXGP Academy is aware of the fact that assistance to riders only is not enough, there is also a need for effective support of the rider's entourage.

Therefore, in addition training and masterclass sessions for riders, the MXGP Academy weekend training intends to organize also workshops, seminars and panel meetings for parents, trainers and Federation representatives involved in motocross. Besides these activities the MXGP Academy will publish on regularly basis and on all possible media news, reports and information on all issues related to its targets and initiatives.
