REVAMPED AND READY TO RACE

Whether you dig an old school grass roots style of motocross or you are looking to see something new and unique, the 2014 FIM Motocross World Championship calendar has all the bases covered. It is not called the ‘world’ championship for nothing and the proof is in the pudding with all three opening rounds taking place outside of Europe.

The season opener in Qatar will set the stage for the series as it prepares to redefine the word “epic”. Much like last year, the race will be held on a Saturday evening in the floodlit arena of the Losail circuit though while last year was nothing short of spectacular this year we can expect even more. With the installation of a new permanent lighting system the track should be much closer to its full potential by covering the track with an even sheen of bright light. With the Women’s Motocross World Championship joining the MXGP field

for its first race the addition of more ‘female friendly’ structures to accommodate the lovely ladies will be greatly appreciated by the competitors and fans alike.

European motocross fans and enthusiasts who will have spent the long winter months making predictions, bets and arguing with their buddies over who they think will stand on the podium are sure to be longing for this moment, the first Motocross Grand Prix in Europe. In 2014 Europe’s opening round will take place in Trentino, Italy, one of the most picturesque locations on the tour. The venue of ‘Arco Di Trento’ is currently having a make over where everything is get-

To top it all off, a new Gold VIP area will be allocated and set up for those who choose to splurge on a VIP Gold Pass for the weekend. While round five has still to be confirmed, round six dives into a sea of rowdy orange clothed people, with thousands of waving Herlings#84 flags and troops of chain

saw wielding MX fanatics in Valkenswaard, The Netherlands. The fans of ‘sand’ style motocross will be stoked to know that the track will be ripped deeper than last year, making for a more gnarly and traditional sand race. Spain is making a return to the Grand Prix’s with round seven at the legendary track of Talavera de la Reina while the spectator friendly ‘Matterley Basin’ in Great Britain will take on round eight in the middle of the British “spring”.

For those that never miss the Motocross of Nations, you’ll be pumped to know that the next three rounds are known for their MXoN success. We love the French and Italian crowds with their fire and passion, which is why Saint Jean D’Angely in France and Maggiora, Italy, will take on rounds nine and ten.

the “KISS” campaign, which stands for ‘Keep It Shiny and Sustainable’. As apart of the campaign last year our champions Antonio Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings, along with a few of the all time greats Stefan Everts, Joel Smets and Finland’s own Heikki Mikkola and Pekka Vehkonen, planted trees at the circuit as a symbol and example to motocross enthusiasts to take care of the environment we race and train in. Loket in the Czech Republic is another golden oldie on the calendar which will hold round fifteen, while round sixteen moves to the ‘motocross capital’ Belgium with the ven-

Although The Ukraine has a solid history of motocross, hosting multiple European Championship and MX3 World Championship rounds, this year will be the first time in modern history that the country will host an MXGP round. From there it is all about excitement and as much as we love tradition we also love new arena’s to play in, which leads us to the last two rounds in Brazil and Mexico. Brazil, as always, will be a stand out event with a new track being construct-

ed, following the design cues of Beto Carrero and it is expected that more than 30,000 fans will turn up to see our MXGP stars duke it out. Meanwhile, the grand finale will be held in front of our Mexican “amigos” at a completely new location. The track in Leon will be built inside a huge city park, which is a famous for hosting major sporting events and activities. The track will be located near a lake and the soil used to build the track will have been extracted from the bottom of that lake. To top it all off, the design of the track has been made and approved by the city Leon itself.

signed sealed and delivered with two champions crowned we will head to Kegums in Latvia for yet another stellar Motocross of Nations and what better track to have it on. The fluffy caramel colored dirt looks all fine and dandy, but it is deceiving how gnarly that track gets and as we have seen time and time again, at the Motocross of Nations anything can happen which is why we love it.

Putting it out there

When we talk about factory bikes in Motocross it conjures images of one off specials dripping in hand made parts, fans mutter in hushed tones of race budgets that dwarf the dreams of mortal MX riders and innovations that will hopefully trickle down to the bikes we can buy in the years to come. On the other hand when we talk of TV the view is a bit more simplistic, get a camera, get a satellite or Ethernet cable and send it to a

station, right? Not quite. We’d actually be better of using the sort of words that we reserve to describe exotic race machines for TV as the pace of development in broadcasting in the last 10 years has accelerated well beyond that of the bikes that it is used to cover. First the aspect ratio went WIDE with the change to 16:9, look at any unwanted television

that’s left outside by an ungrateful owner nowadays and though it may only be 8 years old, by today’s standards it is a clunky grey box from the dark ages. Then we went HD and all went out and bought a new TV that could support the format, but before long that was only half the story as 3D became the standard to strive towards and now even that is not enough for the manufacturers. With 4K being pushed to become the home

25


viewing standard in the next 5 years there is a whole new avenue for broadcasting opening up that goes above and beyond what even 3D can offer. All those are the bits that the consumer sees, behind the scenes there has been a sea change in the technology that is needed to provide the signals and content to satisfy and explore the capabilities of the fast changing consumer market. Youthstream jumped in to the middle with LIVE Motocross since its beginnings and it has been a rapid acceleration ever since. 2013 was a landmark year for the Motocross World championship with the infrastructure for

26

MXGP MAG 2014 MXGP.COM

live tapeless HD broadcast in place after years of investment, a revamped magazine programme in HD using the latest camera technology, a new outside broadcast truck and live TV graphics that could begin to tap the extra screen capacity of the HD signal. The investment paid off, not just for you the viewer in terms of the clarity and content of the programmes you watched but also in the worldwide reach of the Motocross World Championship. Overall there were 2006 extra hours of MXGP on worldwide TV in 2013 that thanks to our varied broadcasters had a potential viewer total of 219 Million people at any one time. Figures that gave MXGP a potential

cumulative audience of over 1,2 Billion over all the season. The reach of the networks and their interest in MXGP is in direct correlation to the investments made in the best and latest broadcast standard equipment and technology and with the World Championship moving East to the Qatar and Thai Grand Prix there was an explosion of coverage in south east Asia through Pan Asian broadcasters.


More impressive was that the Qatar season opener had the season’s joint highest viewing figures around the world, with the flood lit race sharing the spot with the classic event of Loket and the return of the Finish GP the diversity of the Championship and the TV coverage really shows. Far from resting on its laurels for 2014, the TV production will take another step with a huge increase in the number of Cameras covering the races, Ioannis Nikolaidis Youthstream’s TV Executive Manager can explain it best. “We will have in total 12 RF signals this year. #1 is our usual RF CAM, #2 will be the “drag way” camera which last years tests proved were ac-

tually very nice perspectives of the races. #3-5 will be our traditional on board cams on the bikes/riders, #6-8 will be PIT LANE action live, #9-11 minicams in the field and the #12 will be the DRONE. We do believe that with all these new views the home viewer will have a more LIVE coverage than ever.” At each Grand Prix these cameras and the now standard HD track feed cameras will provide the networks and fans with 2 hours of the MXGP class, 2 hours of MX2 racing and at the MXoN 2 full days of action. There will also be full coverage online as MXLIFE.tv morphs into MXGPTV.COM with all the races streaming live online from their events plus the support-

ing cast of WMX and the full spectrum of EMX Championships. To cap it all off the race by race half hour magazine programme will continue to evolve in 2014 with more cameras bringing all the best bits of the weekend’s action and intrigue to the audience straight after the GP, with insider titbits, rider interviews, unique race highlights and comprehensive news coverage from inside the MXGP paddock. It is all about making the most of the technology available and with TV continuing to evolve and shift year by year, the Motocross World Championship is investing and growing to stay on the peak of the curve.

MXGP Academy

Lights the way for our talented young stars

There are a lot of important decisions to be made in young riders careers that, as much as we hate to say it, can ultimately make or break them in the long run. In order to take some of the pressure off parents by minimizing career guesswork, Youthstream created the MXGP Academy, a program designed to develop and guide young riders towards realizing and achieving their motocross dreams.

As mentioned in the previous issue of the MXGP Mag the MXGP Academy will be led by two-time Motocross World Champion John Van Den Berk and fitness expert Jan Postema. Using their combined accomplishments and industry inside knowledge they have come up with the ultimate program to maximize the potential of the next generation both on and off the track.

Riders can now enroll in the MXGP Academy’s winter training program to be held in the south of Spain where they will train under the watchful eyes of Jan and John. The winter program began on December the 23rd and will run through to March 1st in week long blocks. Thanks to the support of KTM, the MXGP Academy has multiple ‘ready to race’ KTM SX65, SX85, SX125 and 250SX-F bikes

Friday before selected MXGP events. The sessions will last three hours where the chosen riders will be given the utmost amount of guidance and attention from the fabulous MXGP Academy trainers, as well getting the opportunity to get up close and personal with current MXGP athletes.

With the MXGP Academy winter program already in full swing and popularity increasing by the minute, we are finally able to spill the beans on what’s in store for the MXGP Academy during the 2014 season. When the season begins on March the 1st specially selected MXGP Academy riders will be invited to train on the actual MXGP circuits on the

The MXGP Academy realizes that for our future stars all roads lead to Bastogne, Belgium, where the 2014 FIM Junior Motocross World Championship will take place. This event attracts an abundance of young talented riders who travel from all corners of the globe to test their speed on the world stage. For the majority of the MXGP Academy riders it

will be their time to shine and the MXGP Academy trainers would like nothing better than to see their riders reach their full potential at the championship. For this reason the MXGP Academy setup will attend the Junior Motocross World Championship where they will arrange some activities specifically designed to extract the best out of the riders. With so much already happening and with so much more to look forward to we hope you have had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

FIM Asia Elections

On the 11th of December 2013 a new wave rode its way through the general assembly of the FIM Asia as the scheduled elections revealed a see change in the governance of motorcycle sport in the Asia Pacific region. The assembly in Kuala Lumpur called together 24 national members of the federation, as well as the latest addition the Oman Motorcycle Federation, to vote for the President and Vice Presidents of the Federation for the next term of office. Fittingly the election was a victory for Mr Wan Ahamed Zaharuddin of Malaysia who will be ably supported in his first term as president by three newly elected vice presidents representing the full spectrum of the Federation.

For Asian motocross fans there is good news as he has experience of creating tracks to FIM international standards for the Lebanese Motocross Championship where he worked closely with the second man elected to the vice presidency Mr Ali Dagher.

Mr Dagher, the president of the Lebanese Motorcycle Federation, has also shown great support for Motocross in the Arab regions and their Mr Essa Al Awadhi, President of joint presence is a boom for off road racing in FIM Asia. the Bahrain Motorcycle Federation was the first to be elected carrying 20 votes to his name, a The third, until the 2014 fact that reflects the importance election to vote in a 4th member, Vice President to be of his previous experience on elected was Mr Sadkin Aksa, the executive committee of the who has held the office of Arab Motorcycle Federation.

Vice President for the Indonesian Motorcycle federation since 2012. The 4th and final Vice President will be elected during next years general assembly. These election results mean that the FIM Asia now has an entirely new executive committee to continue to move an area of the world with a huge interest and consumer base for motorcycles forward with sport, coupled with the MXGP World Championship making two highly anticipated trips to Asia as the first steps for the 2014 season, motorcycle racing and most importantly Motocross in Asia is continuing it’s rapid ascendance.

HALL OF FAME

Everts

The start of the dynasty!

Four times a World Champion, Harry Everts the racer wrote some of the very best pages of Belgian Motocross History way before he gave the sport another huge champion in his son. The father of Stefan, the greatest Motocross rider in the history of the World Championship, Harry had to work harder than anyone to reach the highest level. A task he has never shied away from and that dedication and passion for the sport continues today at 61 years of age, as he shares his experience with new young riders. Born on the 6th of February 1952, Harry had to fight on his hands from day one as he had early physical troubles that required repeated surgery before he could even walk normally. Perhaps it was in that formative time that he forged his legendary obstinacy, a trait that helped him to overcome obstacles that any other might
