MOTOGP is an abbreviation for Motocross motorcycles racing which is a motorbike racing category used in many countries all over the world. Grand Prix motorcycle racing is currently the premier category of bike road racing events held on public road tracks officially sanctioned by the FÉdÉration Internationale de Motocrossing. The term” MOTOCROSS” stands for the term “MOTRO-EXPERIMENTAL”. Many countries have their own Grand Prix Motorcycle racing circuit, with the most famous ones being the USA, UK, Belgium and Russia.
In Italy the GP Automobile Association, the Italian Automobile club has held a separate legal body for the purpose of organizing the Grand-Prix Championship. The association says that this is a class by itself. The association also states that it meets all the requirements laid down by the motorbike racing association. The association says that the motor bikes category is suitable for both men and women of all ages and experience level.
For those who participate in the championship, there is a ladder system to qualify for the top prize. For the actual MOTGRP or Motorbike race there are two classes. One is the “man” class, the other the “woman” class. There are seven classes in total, the first of which is “man” and then the seven grades increase to “woman”, “team”, “specialist” and finally to “cyclist”. The highest possible class to qualify for the championship is “cyclist”.
Each motorcycle racer participates in the MOTGRP Europe series races at various locations throughout the European continent. There are several countries that have their own Grand-Prix Championship, including Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Romania, Scotland, Spain and Turkey. There are also countries like Hungary, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and so on. Some of these countries have a separate cc procedure for women.
In the United States, there is only one recognized championship in existence, and it’s known as the MRSA Motocross World Championship. The rules for this championship are different than those of the other four-cylinder categories. Each participant must pass a rigorous written examination administered by the MRSA before being deemed eligible to compete. The “man” class and “woman” class of competition are not allowed to race against each other. Instead, they race against each other in the “cyclist” class.
There is no national championship in the US, but the MRSA has regional championships in many states. The “man” class is subdivided into classes A, B and C, with A being the top class and C being lower than A. The first race of the season is class A, with all the other classes following at the “cyclist” level. There is also a national tournament, but it is called the MRSA Cross Country National Championship and is not sanctioned by any national body. The only international event in which both genders compete is the Motocross des Nations, which is held in Spain.
