FIM Africa warns about MXOAN venue rumour mongering as Uganda’s race nears


From the notice issued by FIM Africa on their social media handles, the air is cleared of when and about what to take place.

According to the notice, it indicates there were certain elements trying to give uncredited information about the proposed hosting venue of the Motocross of African Nations (MXOAN) event to make diversions.

The information didn’t yield fruits and never went well with the African Motorcross governing body hence issuing this notice, it reads…

FIM AFRICA is very saddened to hear of the slanderous rumors that are being spread in the motocross community on the continent, regarding the venue for the 2021 MXOAN. It is important to note that due process will be followed, as has been done over the past 22 years, for any African Continental Championship.

The FIM AFRICA council recently held a meeting with the FMU Organising committee and the dates for the track inspections have been confirmed. We are also pleased to advise that the track inspections will be conducted by the Sporting Director as well as Jack Cheney from South Africa, both of whom are very experienced officials. Once the track inspections have been conducted a final decision will be confirmed.

We request that the parties spreading these rumors, please refrain immediately!! This type of rumor-mongering only causes unhappiness and uncertainty for the FIM AFRICA members. Until further notice, the 2021 MXOAN will be held in Uganda and organized by the recognized Motorcycle Federation (FMU).

For any further queries, please contact the FIM AFRICA Secretariat – fimafrica@fim-africa.com.”

The FMU is in preparation for the Central Africa Motorcross Challenge(CAC) that will take place from 2-4th April where Kenyan riders and other countries have confirmed their participation.
