Lacapelle International - Feb 16

Posted on October 20, 2019

Lacapelle Marival in France will once again be one of the main International pre-season motocross races and will be held on February 16th, two weeks prior the opening round of the MXGP World Championship.

Who will be the next rider to win the French event, after Clément Desalle (2017), Jeffrey Herlings (2018) and Romain Febvre? It’s for sure too early to have the riders line up, as the club just start talking with managers and riders after securing their date for 2020. “As always we had to wait the MXGP calendar to fix a date, and after talking with several main actors of the sport we do as always, organising two weeks prior the first GP. It’s our traditional date, we had also the option to run the event one week later but it’s too close to the British GP for many teams,” explained Vincent Ayroles.

As usual the event will have separate races for the MX2 and MXGP classes, with two races per class and a super final with the best twenty riders of each class. The track will remain similar to last year, but the club start working on the paddock facilities to offer wider space for everyone.
