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 2023 season consists of 19 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.
Former world champion Romain Febvre is in his fourth year riding for the Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP and will be joined by 24-year-old Mitchell Evans, a promising young rider who has represented Australia in the Motocross of Nations. The duo have their sights set on MXPG glory.
