It is remarkable that representatives of the clubs played an important role in this Ceremony and that their champions received points for a kind of Club Championship.
In fact, in this way, riders have a strong relation with the clubs.
Croatia is divided in 21 Counties and the representatives received several awards.
In a very nice atmosphere, all champions received their prizes and some of them even an exchange trophy for one year.

In motocross, trial and vintage, there is a close cooperation with the Slovenian Federation in the use of tracks and exchange of riders.
The FIM Europe President, Mr. Martin de Graaff, was present at this Prize Giving Ceremony and highlighted the good relationship with HMS.
In July, the  Croatian Federation will host the FIM Europe Congress in Zagreb.
