Update of required rider’s protection for 2020 for EMX65/85/125
The FIM Europe, in cooperation with the FIM, is working on improving the safety and well-being of riders. In order to harmonize FIM Europe rules with the rules of FIM Junior Motocross World Championship, the FIM Europe is extending required protective equipment for EMX65/85/125 classes to include also shoulder, elbow and knee protection.
As stated in the FIM Europe motocross rules for 2020, paragraph 01.2.8.3:
- riders must wear unmodified, commercially available, full upper body protection (back and front) at all times whilst on the track;
- riders in EMX65, EMX85 and EMX125 must wear commercially available, unmodified shoulder, elbow and knee protection at all times whilst on the track;
- riders in all other classes including quad riders and sidecar drivers and passengers are recommended to use shoulder, elbow and knee protection at all times whilst on the track.
The change is already active and riders will be checked upon entering the track during FIM Europe meetings.
