The organization will use the winter period to prepare everything well so that the 2023 MX season can start in a beautiful way on one of the most popular circuits of The Netherlands.

Comments co-organizer Arno van den Brink – ”There are not many major competitions in the Netherlands these days, besides the Dutch Masters of Motocross and the Dutch MXGP. That is a shame. Because nothing was planned in the Netherlands on March 5, we came up with the idea to organize a big ”Warm Up competition”. This can be an interesting race for both the Grand Prix, EMX and ONK riders to gain some extra race rhythm before their competition starts. The coming period will be all about preparing everything well so that we can put a great new competition on the Dutch calendar.”
