Youthstream has announced today the return of the Motocross of European Nations for 2017 with Poland selected to stage the event on September 3. The event is ‘open’ so any team from any Federation worldwide is entitled to enter it.
The event was last held in 2015 at Pietramurata, Italy where the home team took the title with Sweden and France joining them on the podium – Great Britain elected not to send a team. In 2017 the event will be held at the circuit of Gdansk, which also hosted the 2005 edition.
“We look forward to this event going to Poland with such an interesting race format, which will make this a very attractive event for the Polish fans,” said Youthstream CEO, Daniele Rizzi in a press release. “We thank FIM Europe, the Polish Federation and the City of Gdansk: they have all worked hard to make this happen.”
FIM Europe Motocross Commission Chairman, Eddie Herd said he was “happy to see the event on the calendar,” adding, “it is a very important event for FIM Europe and for the development of the young riders to ride as a team for their Nation and also have a National team event for the Women. I hope that we will get support from many national teams in both classes.”
