RAPID RESULTS! 2020 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX—THE FIRST OF 9 ITALIAN GPs (UPDATED)

The Faenza Grand Prix track.

Believe it or not, the 2020 world Motocross Championships are quickly becoming an all-Italian series. There will be 9 Grands Prix held in Italy in the coming weeks, starting with a first triple-header at the old Faenza track, a second one on Wednesday and a third one on Sunday, September 13. Then, the MXGP circus will move to Mantova, Italy, for another triple-header before leaving Italy (although they will be back after the Lommel, Belgium triple-header for Italian rounds 7, 8 an 9 at Trentino, Italy).

Doing well in Italy will determine who the 2020 World Motocross Champion will be.

Maxime Renaux won his first-ever 350 Grand Prix at Faenza.

Jago Geerts (193) took the first 250 GP moto in Faenza, but finished third in moto 2 to make Maxime Renaux’s 2-1 the overall winner.
