The world of motocross is a big family and made by passionate people, we are happy to gather together with the FIM and all the organisers to prepare the next season. The 2022 season saw for the first time since the pandemic the return to a sense of normalcy with the comeback of the public and the overseas races, in fact we went back to Argentina and Indonesia which were amazing events. We also had of course, a fantastic return of the Monster Energy FIM MXoN in the US where we saw the American team coming back to winning ways. It announces an exciting Monster Energy FIM MXoN next year in Ernée which can only be great news for our sport in general. We witnessed a great season in MXGP, MX2, WMX and the European Championships full of close battles and exciting actions. I want to thank you 2023 Organizers also on behalf of Giuseppe Luongo, because you, organisers, are the base of our sport, unfortunately the 2 years without public have been very difficult and impacted every one of you but through hard work we managed together to re-start the 2022 season without losing 20 years of development of our sport. Every year MXGP is improving, in terms of infrastructures, audience and spectators’ experience onsite, in fact we can expect some exciting novelties for the 2023 season. Finally we also want to thank the FIM for their excellent work, amazing support and partnership during these times. We are very excited about the 2023 season as we are going to introduce some novelties. We can now fully focus on the development of our sport and expect an even stronger season”

FIM/CMS Director Antonio Alia Portela also thanked everyone for a fantastic season by saying: “This is always a pleasure to share this important moment with you. We’ve been through difficult times and those 2 years have been really tough for the organisers, for Infront Moto Racing and for the sport in general. We want you to make events as strong as possible, we’re going to be there with you, supporting you in all aspects. Then we come back next year, share our experiences again in order to make sure we will keep building better seasons year after year. I will thank you all again for all your efforts and wish you all the best for next year. As the calendar present itself it looks like it’s going be a very fantastic 2023 season.
