This Summers Top Motocross World Championship Events: Part One
Of all the variations of motorcycling to have taken off since the automobiles invention at the turn of 20th century, motocross is undoubtedly one of the most popular. With an extremely devoted and worldwide following, the sport has risen from obscurity to become of the current leading automotive sports at present.
There was a time when motocross helmets would have looked completely out of place on a merchant’s shelf aside standard full face helmets or modular helmet’s, however nowadays they are a sure signal of one of motorcycling’s most renowned subsections.
In this spirit, let’s take a look at the approaching top motocross world championship events:
Each June, the formidable motocross track at Ernee- northwest of the medieval city of Rennes, northern France is taken over by thousands of motocross enthusiasts eager to catch a glimpse at some of the world’s top riders. As with much of western Europe, its characteristically difficult to predict whether there will be a need for heavy duty riding jackets, or none at all- as the meet is as likely to blessed with sunshine as it is with torrential downpour. The closest approaching event of this year’s series- the Motocross World Championships France takes place on June 9th.
An event with a little more guarantee of excellent weather, the World Championships Italian leg takes place at Maggiora, northern alley. This semi-mountainous region lays within spitting distance of the Swiss border- in turn providing some of the continent’s most formidable competition terrain. With a combination of alpine and dirt stages, a trip to Maggiora on June 16th is certainly worthy of consideration.
The town of Uddevalla is nestled within the uncompromising and rugged countryside of western Sweden. This sparse and natural setting provides the perfect location for some of the world’s best motocross riders to compete with one another. An excellent event showcasing some of the original aesthetical values of motocross as a sport, Motocross World Championships Sweden is Scandinavia’s premier event of this kind and takes place on June 30th, 2013.
A beautiful though somewhat underappreciated Baltic nation, Latvia has become one of Europe’s most celebrated tourist spots in recent decades. With an abundance of craggy countryside supplemented by some of the continent’s most impressive coastline- Latvia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for holidaymakers who are on a budget though refuse to sacrifice any form of quality. The small town of Kegums lies around 30 miles southeast the nation’s capital- Riga, and is set to host this year’s Motocross World Championships, Latvia on July 7th.
Yet another glorious Baltic Sea destination, Hyvinkaa in Finland offers an equal amount of immense wildlife and powerful motocross bikes this July. Taking place at the town of Hyvinkaa, a short drive in-land from Finland’s capital city of Helsinki- this year’s Motocross World Championships make the short journey over the channel from Latvia to arrive in Finland on July 14th. Though the height of summer, this is Finland- so I’d pack those saddlebags full of your warmest riding jackets, just in case.
