Complete 20-round schedule confirmed for next season.
The 2020 MXGP World Championship calendar has been made official, confirming 20 rounds will take place next season.
The opening venue will be at the fan-favourite Matterley Basin, being the MXGP of Great Britain – the first European GP to start off the MXGP season since 2012. The second stop will be the following weekend on 8 March in the sandy track of Valkenswaard in the Netherlands, followed by Neuquen in Patagonia-Argentina.
Then MXGP will return to Europe to visit some of the most emblematic tracks in the calendar such as Pietramurata in Trentino, St. Jean d’Angely in France, Teutschenthal in Germany, Orlyonok in Russia and Kegums in Latvia.
The 2020 calendar also features big comebacks, such as the one of Spain, whose venue is still to be announced, or the one of Maggiora where the 2020 MXGP of Italy will be hosted.
In June the MXGP paddock will travel overseas for the back-to-back Indonesian rounds, being Jakarta the new host of the first stop while the second one will mark the return to Palembang for the second year in a row.
After the Indonesian trip, MXGP will move to one of the old school venues of the calendar, Loket in Czech Republic, followed by the sandy circuit of Lommel in Belgium and the hillside track of Uddevalla in Sweden.
Round 17 of the 2020 season will take place at the brand-new KymiRing circuit in Iitti, Finland, and afterwards MXGP will visit Turkey and China for rounds 18 and 19. The final round of the 2020 season is set to be held in Imola for the MXGP of Emilia Romagna.
The Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN) will be hosted in Ernee, France, on 27 September.
