Scheduling conflict the reason for USA absence from FIM Jr. Motocross World Championships

Posted:

A scheduling conflict will prevent the U.S. team from attending the FIM Jr. Motocross World Championship in Estonia this weekend, July 30.

"Unfortunately, the date for the FIM Jr. Motocross World Championship overlaps with the start of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship we host at Loretta Lynn's Ranch every year," AMA Motocross Manager Kip Bigelow said.

The U.S. team has missed the F̩d̩ration Internationale de Motocyclisme event the past two years. In 2015, the Jr. Motocross World Championships were scheduled too close to the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship, and in 2016 the U.S. team was unable to acquire support to race in Russia.

"We are working closely with FIM on this to ensure that the U.S. team will be able to compete in future events," Bigelow said. "We hope to be able to return next year. Meanwhile, we wish all the world championship contenders good fortune."

The U.S. team has won the team title at the FIM Jr. World Motocross Championship four of the five times it has attended.

In addition to team titles, U.S. riders have won four individual titles. They include Eli Tomac, the 2010 125cc champion; Jake Pinhancos, the 2011 65cc champion; Joey Savatgy, the 2012 125cc champion; and Aiden Tijero, the 2013 65cc champion.
