MXGP ACADEMY RETURNS AT THE MXGP OF SPAIN

The new Motocross season starts with exciting news about the return of the MXGP Academy on Friday and Saturday, 22-23 March 2024. The first event of the season will be solely dedicated to female riders. As the 15 participants get ready to embark on this journey in Intu Xanadú, Spain, along with the FIM Women's Motocross World Championship opening round, and get 360-dergee knowledge about Motocross, with the aim to bring more talented young girls to this dynamic discipline. And get new athletes and talents, who could be future motocross stars. 

With support from the Infront Moto Racing, the FIM and the MXGP Academy this event has been created to promote gender inclusivity in sport and encourage female participation in Motocross.  We are happy to announce that 2022 FIM WMX Champion Nancy Van de Ven is joining the MXGP Academy Team with Martin van Ganderen and Jan Postema.

MXGP Academy coach Nancy Van de Ven stated: "I am really excited to start training the girls in Spain, but it will take some time to get used to fulfilling a different role than I did before as a rider. I have earned my first MX-trainer's diploma and am currently pursuing my second. (Level-3). The MXGP Academy has big ambitions, that will give young girls the same opportunities as boys. I'm glad I can contribute significantly to this, and I'm looking forward to the first official training at the MXGP Academy weekend in Spain".

The MXGP Academy will take place on the 22-23 March at Xanadú - Arroyomolinos during the MXGP of Spain with only female riders for the first round of the MXGP Academy's season
