French pre-season event set for a week after HIMX

A week after the provisional date for the Hawkstone International MX on March 14, the Lacapelle Marival club in France plans to stage its annual Masters of Motocross pre-season international.

“As all organisers we don’t know what will be the sanitary situation in four months,” said club VP Vincent Ayroles, “but we had to fix a date and start working. It was important to announce a date to the teams and also organisers all over Europe.”

The international always attracts a stellar entry of world championship regulars. This year’s event was won by new MX2 king Tom Vialle (Red Bull KTM) and organisers are hoping to tempt MXGP champion Tim Gajser (Team HRC) into making his Lacapelle Marival debut on March 21.
