Motorcycling Australia (MA) have announced changes to the current MXD class and junior pathway that will support development of motocross in Australia and will assist riders to gain the vital skills to be able to progress to MX2 and MX1 classes through the new MX3 class which replaces MXD.
Currently there is very little overlap in the class structure, and riders must move even if not willing or ready to, or don‰Ûªt have the skills to do so. In addition, where a Junior rider is ready to move up a class, they can be held back by age group limitations.
By creating a new pathway with an overlap in age group classes, riders will have some flexibility to remain in a class or move up a class if they are ready and eligible to do so.
The MX3 class also brings Australian motocross more in line with the FIM age groupings.
‰ÛÏThis change will provide a clear pathway for Australia‰Ûªs talented young riders into the senior classes of MX2 and MX1,‰Û
