State border closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic have forced the cancellation of the 2020 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship, which was scheduled to be held in Queensland later this year.

With restrictions on travel imposed, Rockhampton and District Motocross Club in consultation with Motorcycling Australia (MA) have made the difficult decision to cancel the event, which had already been postponed.

“With strict travel restrictions and border closures, it is simply not possible to hold the national championships,” said Rockhampton and District Motocross Club treasurer and race secretary Debbie Dark.

“While we are disappointed the 2020 KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championships could not proceed, we are very thankful for efforts put in by our members to prepare a fantastic track and the sponsors who strongly support the event.

“We have had a very good relationship with MA and will continue discussions with them about the potential of holding the KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championships in 2021 during the September/October school holidays.”

The Rockhampton and District Motocross Club is in discussions with the national governing body to instead hold the Australian Junior Motocross Championship in 2021.
