Continuous heavy rain and poor weather conditions over the last four months have prompted Youthstream to reschedule China’s fifth round of the 2019 MXGP World Championship.

The Shanghai stop will now host the penultimate round of the series on 15 September, one week prior to the season finale in Hong Kong.

The MXGP of China in Shanghai will be a major event in the annual calendar of the People’s Republic of China, and up until today the exceptional non-stop period of rain completely blocked the work of preparing the venue and the build-up of the track.

The forecast for the upcoming weeks is the same and those conditions could bring a high risk of cancelling the event. The MXGP of Lombardia in Italy will now mark round five of the series on 12 May.
