2021 Team List published

2021 Team List published

The list of confirmed Teams in both the Evo and Twinshock classes are now published on the left hand side of this page.
With many entries being carried over from the postponed 2020 event, there are still a lot of riders to be confirmed within the teams and these will be updated as time progresses.
With England now being outside of the European Union, the FIM have produced an extensive and very helpful document, specifically for events like the Vets Motocross des Nations, which will help with border controls. Please apply by e-mail to dithompson15@gmail.com if you would like a copy. (Team Managers to sonia.goggin@acu.org.uk)
Closer to the event, the organisation will also provide each rider / team with an official letter confirming participation in the event to assist at the border crossings.
Information of Covid procedures will evolve as time progresses, but more specifically after June 21st.

A different view on February 1st

A different view on February 1st

For the past few years February 1st has heralded the day when entries open each year for the event in September.
Of course, this year is different in as much as when the 2020 event was postponed, each Rider and Team were allowed to carry their entries forward to the event scheduled for September this year.
Today, with the rollout of the vaccines and continued social distancing taking place at the moment, we are staying positive that the event will go ahead in September as planned. We will monitor the situation in the next few months and make a firm announcement by July to allow everyone to make final plans.
In the meantime, in order to whet your appetites we aim to publish a full start list in April.

2020 EVENT POSTPONED 18th JUNE

2020 EVENT POSTPONED 18th JUNE


We have been monitoring the current situation on a daily basis and taking advice from various sources as to the possibility of the 2020 Vets MXdN taking place on the weekend of the 12th & 13th September.
Having considered all of the data and information available, the reluctant decision has been taken to postpone the event until 2021. The provisional date will be the 11th & 12th September 2021.

The main reasons are based around social distancing which includes the safety of all riders, officials and spectators, with so many people on site for the duration of the weekend.
Secondly, it would be impossible for the social part of the event, the evening bar and disco, to take place and this does form an important part of the event for so many people.
Thirdly, with the UK Government having made fourteen days quarantine compulsory for most of our foreign friends at the moment, it would not be a true International event if so many are unable to attend.

The organisers originally set the criteria that the whole of the UK moved into level two of the Government Guidelines for the situation which states – Covid 19 is present in the UK, but the number of cases and transmission is low. We are currently still at level four which is a long way off this being met.

You will be aware that with so many riders requesting an entry into the event creates a large logistical problem. Therefore, it has been decided that all entries (and reserves) who have been successful, will be held over for the revised date and therefore entry fees will not be refunded. However, if any rider does not wish to take up this option, they should contact the Event Manager (dithompson15@gmail.com) before 30th June when a refund (as stated in the Supplementary Regulations) will be made, but of course, the place will be given to another waiting rider in due course.

We trust that you understand the circumstances of the postponement as our first priority is the safety of all concerned.

Team Belgium and Germany MX Classic take honours

Team Belgium and Germany MX Classic take honours

In what many describe as the "best ever", the eleventh running of the event took place in perfect conditions over the weekend.
As expected, Belgium, USA and England were the front runners in the main Evo competition which was decided in the final moto of the day when the Belgian squad doubled their advantage to nineteen points over the USA quartet. England suffered an early setback when Stephen Sword crashed heavily early on Saturday in the qualifying session so the three remaining riders had to ensure they finished all four motos.
In the secondary Twinshock Vets MXdN, Team Classic Germany dominated proceedings, packing their three point scoring riders into the top six positions in every moto. England finished second thanks to the USA suffering one maximum in the final moto when only two of their team finished the race.
Impressive racing was also witnessed by the large crowd in the supporting races and we look forward to a full report from our Media Partners, Trials and Motocross News on Thursday.
Details of the 2020 event will be released on this website during November.
