Date shifted one week prior due to local election.
Confirmed as the opening round of the 2019 MXGP World Championship last week, Patagonia Argentina has now been rescheduled to take place one week earlier than initially planned on 2-3 March.
The previous schedule was selected before a local government election was announced causing the change, the change in schedule coming due to a local law which prohibits public events from coinciding with such elections.
The new anticipated date will however better suit the interest of both riders and fans as the best athletes in the world return to MXGP racing following winter preparation.
The 2019 MXGP World Championship will span over 20 rounds, starting in March before winding up in September at Imola in Italy.
