Penrite ProMX Championship management has confirmed the postponement of Wodonga’s fifth round of the 2021 season, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to place Australian racing in a cloud of uncertainty.

Scheduled to be held on Sunday, 25 July, the Victorian event has been postponed over two weeks out in order to provide as much notice as possible to competitors during these ambiguous times.

The decision was a direct result of complications surrounding various state government restrictions, which have been driven by numerous Covid-19 outbreaks across Greater Sydney and South-East Queensland. Sydney and surrounding arounds will remain in lockdown until at least 16 July.

With the entire 2020 Australian Motocross Championship cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Wodonga becomes the second event on the 2021 calendar to be postponed, with Gillman already shifted back from May to September as the series finals.

Albury-Wodonga MCC will now work closely with the ProMX organisers to secure a new date for the postponed Victorian round, potentially as late as September also depending on the Australian Supercross Championship status.

Otherwise, if a replacement weekend for Wodonga round cannot be reached, broader speculation surfacing this week suggests that Gillman could become a double-header to complete the season in South Australia on the first weekend of September.
