MCUI PR: Team Ireland Junior World Motocross Championship 2024

Press Release from the MCUI Motocross Commission:

Team Ireland, Junior World Motocross Championship Date of event: 13/14 July 2024 Venue:

Heerde, The Netherlands. This prestigious event will gather young motocross talents from 38

Nations, all competing to bring glory to their countries. Competitors will race in three distinct

classes, battling for the titles of Junior World Champion in the 125cc and 85cc categories, as well

as the World Cup Winner in the 65cc class.

The FIM Junior Motocross World Championship has been the launchpad for some of the biggest

names in the sport and is seen as a key springboard for the brightest and best talent to put their name into the reckoning of factory teams and oƯicial backing.

Each rider will be scoring points for their country resulting in an overall result to crown the winning

team. The home crowd (The Netherlands) will be looking to encourage their team to go one better

than they did in Romania in 2023, when they finished a close second to the victorious Italian

squad. Team France were 3rd ahead of the USA and Latvia, so there is a genuine International

World Championship atmosphere at this incredible event, and with fervent local support it

promises to be a very exciting weekend of action.

The MCUI Motocross Commission had planned to send an oƯicial team to this event for 2023 but

due to the last-minute resignation of the Team Manager, a team could not be sent. However, in

2024 with the appointment of former Motocross Des Nations Team Ireland rider, Richard

McKeown as the Team Manager, a new team spirit was formed and after many months of

fundraising and rider development, the MCUI Motocross Commission have approved a squad of

Ireland’s 10 top youths. All riders are happy to represent their fellow countrymen in showcasing

the best of Ireland's youth motocross talent on the top international stage.

The Commission wishes the Team and the Team Manager the best of luck and continued success

with the hope of a good result to bring back home.

The Commission would like to thank the Team sponsors without whom, the Team could not be
