DAVID LUONGO – MXGP MAG EDITORIAL #127

Dear MXGP Fans,
 

Ahead of the Grand Prix of Portugal, I have very important news to share with you. After more than 20 years of waiting, the MXGP of Australia will be back on the calendar for the 2025 season. This is clearly a great achievement for Infront Moto Racing and all the motocross community. Australia is one of the biggest and most enthusiastic countries for offroad and motocross in the world. Thanks to the fantastic collaboration with Motorcycle Australia and the Northern Territory government, I have no doubt that the Grand Prix will settle itself in the country for a long term. It is a new step for the MXGP on its path to the global coverage it deserves as the most popular Offroad series in the world. In the upcoming months, we will share more information about the Grand Prix, but I have no doubt that the Australian offroad community will embrace this great news! 

Secondly, the final Grand Prix of the 2024 season will take place in Spain. The MXGP of Castilla La Mancha in Cozar will end a fantastic season of 20 Grand Prix before heading to the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in Matterley Basin, UK.

Concerning the past Grand Prix, we delivered two very successful Grand Prix in Italy with Riola Sardo and Pietramurata. During those races the MXGP and MX2 classes confirmed that the championship will be a long journey full of actions. Jorge Prado is showing a fantastic confidence and impressive speed since the beginning of the season, but Tim Gajser and Romain Febvre maintain a short gap with him, while Jeffrey Herlings is still building his rhythm from his past injuries. These four riders are showing impressive skills, but the season is still very long, and many things can happen. 

In MX2, Kay De Wolf is leading the championship but here also the battle for the title will remain for long with many potential GP winners as Liam Everts, Andrea Adamo, Simon Laengenfelder and more to come. 

The start of the different European Championship has been a great success as well, with two groups in EMX125 and EMX250 at the MXGP of Trentino. As commonly stated, the EMX are vital for the future of our sport as they are the class that will grow the champions of tomorrow, the excellent situation of these categories is a very good sign for the upcoming years. 

Now we are entering into the first triple header Grand Prix of the season with Agueda (Portugal), MXGP of Galicia (Spain) and Saint Jean d’Angely (France), three hard ground tracks with very different soil and particularities. After these three Grand Prix, we will pass the third of the championship, it is the first important moment of the season. 

I wish you a great Portuguese Grand Prix and for the ones who cannot make it to Agueda, you can follow us on MXGP-TV.com.

 

See you in Portugal.
