About the All Japan Motocross Championship

The All Japan Motocross Championship, run by the MFJ (Motorcycle Federation of Japan), is Japan's premier motocross racing series. The season consists of 10 rounds, with each class running two races of 30 minutes plus one lap. The rider who accumulates the most points over the year is crowned national champion. Races are held on outdoor dirt courses featuring naturally undulating terrain and man-made technical sections. Racers with International A-class qualification compete in two classes: IA1 (4-stroke 450cc machines, or 2-stroke 250cc machines) and IA2 (4-stroke 250cc machines, or 2-stroke 125cc machines). The machines used are production motocross racers featuring special tuning for even greater potential.
