“Planning for the 2021 ProMX is well under way and we know teams, riders and fans are extremely keen to go racing after the interruption of this year. ProMX will showcase an international standard championship not only for our Australian riders and teams, but also our MX fans in Australia and throughout the world. We now see many people watching the talent coming out of Australia to take on the world in MXGP and USA, and ProMX will continue to be a crucial breeding ground towards other international championships. We have developed the ProMX Management Team to ensure we have representatives with a wealth of experience from racing, industry, teams, technical, safety, event management and promotion to ensure we can grow the sport of motocross in Australia into the future. With the right support from industry, partners and sponsors we hope to be able to showcase a scintillating championship via television broadcast next year that will be an exciting addition to the 2021 ProMX championship.”
