The MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina has been removed from the 2020 calendar as a result of COVID-19, set to return again from next season.

Infront Moto Racing has announced that the event, scheduled for 21-22 November, will be postponed until 2021 and the series will remain at 18 rounds.

Additionally, organizers have agreed to extend the duration of their contract to 2022, which means Neuquen is guaranteed on the world championship calendar for the next two years.
