EMX 150 at Assen (The Netherlands)

Podium_150_II_MXGP_18_NL_2017
The riders in the Honda 150 European Championship have made significant progress across the five rounds that have been run this season. That was evident during the final race of the season, which was held at the Dutch circuit of Assen this weekend, as brilliant battles raged on throughout the field. Andrea Adamo was right at the heart of those on-track fights, as he charged through the pack from outside of the top ten and claimed the title aboard his CRF150R. Adamo, who has shown a tremendous amount of raw speed thus far, claimed pole position at every round and won seven of the races that have been run. Although he was dealt some poor luck along the way, he showed tenacity each time and rebounded in a professional manner. That helped him claim the championship on the world’s greatest stage and in front of a packed grandstand. In the

Dutch Motocross Championship 2018 Parity in 250cc and 450cc

Attachment-1
The KNMV (Koninklijke Nederlands Motorrijders Vereniging) has decided to change the Motocross Championship rules for 2018: All MX1 and MX2 classes will change the name. MX1 will become "450cc" and will be open for 2-stroke as well as 4-stroke engines (parity). MX2 will become "250cc" and will also be open for 2-stroke as well as 4-stroke engines (parity). All the other classes, from 50cc up to 125cc, will be exclusively 2-stroke engines. Rinze Bremmer, KNMV: "It is important to keep the sport affordable for all the classes; the decision goes in the right direction". "I think its a good decision to even up the cc for two and four strokes, also for the manufacturers”, commented the multichampion Jeffrey Herlings. “In the past riders like Carmichael could be competitive with a 2 stroke but because of the development of the 4 stroke engine the difference is to big now.
