The Motocross/SuperMoto Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Wolfgang Srb, President of the CMS/FIM, Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream, and Takanao Tsubouchi, MSMA Secretary General, in a meeting held in St Jean d’ Angély, France, on June 14, decided to introduce the following changes to the Regulations, all for application as from 1.1.2009.
  • 40 entries in MX1, all 40 riders take part in the GP (2 x free practice + 1 race of 20 min + 2 laps on Saturday for the starting positions on Sunday).
  • 40 entries in MX2, all 40 riders take part in the GP (2 x free practice + 1 race of 20 min + 2 laps on Saturday for the starting positions on Sunday).
  • Youthstream will enter 38 riders per class (MX1 and MX2) and the FMNR will enter a maximum of 2 riders per class. Teams/manufacturers can propose to Youthstream a maximum of 24 riders in MX1 as well as in MX2. The remaining riders will be entered directly by Youthstream as wild card riders.

General principles

The FIM, Youthstream and MSMA are in favour to keep Motocross as a basic sport, easy affordable for young riders with low maintenance costs.
