DAVID LUONGO EDITORIAL | MXGP MAG #124

Dear MXGP Fans,

First of all I would like to wish you all the best for 2024 ! 

The upcoming MXGP’s year promises to be remarkable.

First, we are welcoming back the MXGP of China, which was a great success in 2019, and a first ever Motocross Grand Prix in one of the most important and growing country in the world. Shanghai will host its second Grand Prix in September after the MXGP of Turkiye. 

After the Opening of the season on the spectacular and appreciated track of Villa La Angostura in Argentina, the MXGP will land in Spain – Madrid for the first Grand Prix in Europe. I am sure the Spanish fans will answer the call to support the reigning World Champion Jorge Prado in his mission to keep his title! The 2024 calendar will also welcome a new venue, Lugo – Spain for a second Grand Prix. The popularity of motocross in Spain is growing thanks to the great work of the last decade from the Spanish Federation in collaboration with Infront Moto Racing, which now are represented by talented riders like Prado but also Fernandez, and the next generation in European classes. I would like also to mention the talented rider Daniela Guillen who is also part of the future of WMX.

Another fantastic announcement is the presentation of the Offroad program from Ducati, building a team around some of the most experienced people in the paddock, Corrado and Marco Maddi, and the 9th Time and legend of the MXGP, Antonio Cairoli together with Alessandro Lupino. Ducati will bring like Triumph a new and dynamic perspective to MXGP. It will continue to rise the level of competition of the sport. In the upcoming seasons MXGP will have the biggest number of Official Manufacturers participating in the World Championship in the history of Motorsport with 11 prestigious brands (Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, KTM, Husqvarna, GASGAS, Triumph, Ducati, Beta, TM, Fantic)! It is a fantastic rewards for our work over the last decades but also brings a bigger motivation to continue to develop all the aspect of our sport to rise its popularity!

We used the wintertime to redesign our Official Magazine after several years, so you will find a different way of riding it, with more videos, podcasts, interactions with the riders, and all the stakeholders of MXGP. 

On the Broadcasting area, we renewed some important collaborations for example with L’Equipe – La Chaine in France to continue to provide LIVE to the French fans and some deals in Asia and South America. 

Finally, I would like to say a few words about Claudio and Davide De Carli who celebrated 30 years of racing team in the World Championship this week. They marked our sport with their professionalism, serious and positiveness during those three decades, participating actively to the growth of the MXGP. They are the most victorious team in our recent history, and I wish them to have 30 more years with this dynamic and great collaboration.
