Russia hosts first ever MXGP on Tuesday!

With the first 5 rounds of the 20 in 2018 complete, the MXGP FIM Motocross World Championship now heads to Orlyonok, Russia for the MXGP of Russia. The circuit of Orlyonok rests along the Black Sea and will host MXGP for the second year in a row. Last year’s version played out in the traditional weekend racing format but this edition racing will be held on Monday the 30thof April and Tuesday the 1st of May to align with the largely celebrated Spring & Labor Day holiday.

Last year we saw amazing racing in our return to Russia after many years away at a new venue in a completely different region of the country. The entire 2017 event was amazing and though rain dampened the circuit last year perfect weather conditions are expected for this upcoming week. While so far in 2018 it has been a two horse battle between Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlingsand Antonio Cairoli last year’s MXGP of Russia winner Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Clement Desalle along with many other top racers will make the Russian trip.

Joining in the Russian racing is the classes of EMX250 and EMX300 presented by FMF Racing. In EMX250 the first 2 races crowned different round winners the first being BUD Racing’s Pierre Goupillon and the second went to Red Moto Assomotor’s Mathys Boisrame. Both Goupillon and Boisrame will be racing in Russia along with points leader Mel Pocock and 49 others for a total of 52 riders entered. In EMX300 presented by FMF Racing round 1 winner Greg Smets will compete against round 2’s top finisher, GL12 Racing’s Mike Kras, and defending champion, Verde Substance KTM’s Brad Anderson among several others.

This year’s MXGP of Russia will receive worldwide television coverage from its usual television partners plus the entire event including Qualifying and the races of EMX250 and EMX300 presented by FMF Racing will be shown LIVE worldwide from Orlyonok on www.mxgp-tv.com both Monday and Tuesday.

As usual you can watch the 26min Behind the Gate in Europe on motorsport.tv & MotorTrend two days after the event. It can also be viewed in the USA/Canada on BeIn and MAV TV, Finland on MTV 3, Croatia on Kreator TV, South America on FOX Sports, Asia on FOX Sports, China on Fox Sports and SINA, and the Africa on Africa XP.
