2018 WMX – MXGP equals IOC Olympic Games?

Not only has FIM MXGP-WMX Series elevated Women in Sport Motocross to realms no other continent has equalled, the increasingly competitive class of Women MX Athletes has pushed boundaries on recognition of their talents gaining greater Media coverage on and off the track.

As role models and mentors for aspiring Women Motorsport Athletes, Europe’s WMX Series has provided much needed impetus to put talented Female MX riders on a level playing field as their male counter-parts.

Gaining deserved recognition for Women’s performance at World MX Championship WMX Series along with their male peers in MXGP, MX2 and European MX classes, the question is raised: Does FIM/YS World MX Championship hold equal status to IOC Olympic Games?

No less, Women and Male Motocross Athletes past, present and future embrace the committment of time, work, effort to achieve within the most physically, mentally and technically demanding sports with equal conviction to Athletes respective in IOC sports.

More specifically, Women and Male Motocross Athletes raise the bar in terms of actual training/preparation/race-time given FIM/YS MXGP season together with FIM/AMA Supercross season runs 11 months of a calender year.

Bottom line, World MX Championships offers unique opportunities to showcase Athletes talents, skills, fierce competiveness, mental toughness, technical ability and physical endurance that no other sport can match.

That in itself sets Motorsport on another level than the rest.
