About the World Motocross Championship

The World Motocross Championship, recognised by the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation), is the pinnacle of motocross racing. Based primarily in Europe, the series travels around the globe with rounds also held in South America and Asia. The 2020 season consists of 20 rounds, with each round featuring two races held on outdoor dirt courses featuring naturally undulating terrain and man-made technical sections. The two classes are MXGP (4-stroke 450cc machines, or 2-stroke 250cc machines) and MX2 (4-stroke 250cc machines, or 2-stroke 125cc machines), each contested by specially prepared motocross racers.
Riding for the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team this season will be veteran Clément Desalle, who is entering his 15th year of competition in the top class, and former world champion Romain Febvre. The duo have their sights set on MXPG glory.
