Motorcycling Australia (MA) has confirmed the postponement of the 2020 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMX) due to coronavirus.

Originally due to be contested at Rockhampton, Queensland, between 6-11 July, the decision has been made to delay the prestigious national event.

“With strict travel restrictions and border closures across Australia, both MA and Rockhampton and District Motocross Club felt it would be impossible for teams and riders to properly prepare and attend the event,” said MA CEO Peter Doyle.

“Together with the club we have made this tough decision and they should be congratulated for being proactive in looking to hold the 2020 KTM AJMX later this year.”

Instead, it is being suggested that the 2020 AJMX event will be scheduled during the term three school holidays, however, dates won’t be confirmed until later in the year when the situation becomes clearer.
