France will host the iconic Motocross of Nations (MXoN) event in 2023 and 2026, Infront Moto Racing has revealed after coming to a multi-year agreement with the French Motorcycling Federation (FFM).

In addition to the MXoN as part of Infront’s partnership with the FFM, the MXGP World Championship will visit France for the next six years through 2027, as well as host the Junior World Motocross Championship in 2025.

“It is with great pleasure that we consolidate our partnership with the FFM for the years to come,” stated David Luongo, CEO of Infront Moto Racing. “This agreement allows in particular to ensure an annual GP on French territory and a recurrence of the Motocross of Nations.

“Over the years, France has demonstrated the quality of its organisation, its clubs and its circuits capable of welcoming MXGP and above all the passion of its supporters. I would like to thank Mr [Sebastien] Poirier and his teams for our collaboration, always constructive and fruitful.”

No specific tracks have been specified by Infront Moto Racing at this point, however, Ernee was due to be the 2020 host prior to its cancellation. This year’s event is scheduled for Imola, Italy, in September, while the 2022 location is yet to be announced.
