Denmark allows 250cc two-strokes in MX2 class!
From 2017 the Danish motorsport federation (DMU) has decided to let 250cc 4-stroke and 250cc 2-stroke compete on equal terms in the MX2 class. A change that will be effected in all classes from rookie to elite.
Denmark has previous been first movers with 2-strokes as they were one of the first countries to re-introduce the 125cc 2-stroke class as a junior class. Something that was successfully picked up by FIM-Europe and other countries.
Other federations are already allowing 250cc 2-strokes in MX2 and this might be the next trend since the 250 4-strokes are now way more competitive than when they were first introduced.
In Denmark most people has received this news in a very positive way. You will probably not see the frontrunners in the Danish Championship come out on 2-strokes, but you might see young guns like Mikkel Haarup switch to a 250cc 2-stroke, instead of his normal 125cc 2-stroke, when competing in the Danish Championship.
For the normal day-to-day rider this is also good news since the 2-stroke machine is a lot easier and cheaper to maintain for people in their own garage.
