It gathers the best international riders, including seven World Champions who will line up behind Madrid’s starting gates. The Champions from the previous five years – Gajser, Herlings, Cairoli and Febvre – will face off against the young newcomers, whose enormous ambition is best represented in Spain’s Jorge Prado.
After Jorge Prado was able to raise two titles in the two previous years, the looming season is very unpredictable, with multiple riders fighting to replace the Galician as the 250 king.
The likes of Olsen, Vialle, Geerts will be a talking point at intu Xanadu, but keep an eye on the Spaniards, led by Rubén Fernández.
The world’s best motocross women will put their talent and persistence on display in the third round of their own Championship.
The great stars of this category will race on Madrid’s dirt, offering the Spanish crowd a chance to support their brave representatives.
This category is truly the breeding grounds of the sport, serving as a perfect launchpad for the promising young stars from all over the world.
Close to one hundred riders will fight to qualify for the point-scoring races, and amongst them is the remarkable effort of Spain’s RFME National team, who will make the most of their crowd’s support.
