The Australian motorcycle federation, Motorcycling Australia has had no other option other than cancel the 2020 Australian motocross championship, following on from the recent news that the Australian supercross championship would not go ahead.
“Due to the ongoing uncertainty around state government COVID-19 border restrictions, Motorcycling Australia, after consultation with key stakeholders, have been forced to make the difficult decision to abandon any further attempts to conduct the 2020 Australian Motocross Championship,” a statement announced. MA reviewed the championship operations including the format and potential event dates, in consultation with industry, teams, riders and clubs to see if it was possible to run the championship during this COVID-19 period.
“Despite significant work by MA over recent months in exploring all possible options to hold the championship, the uncertainly around state government COVID-19 border restrictions, has meant it is not possible to run the championship in 2020. MA sincerely thank all stakeholders, clubs, teams and riders for their support and patience, but this late in the year has proven too difficult to start the championship without clear plans from state government’s around state borders being reopened.”
