The Hub: MXGP of Portugal

A convenient MXGP tool

· 4 minutes read

Less than a week on from an exhilarating stop in Italy, the Grand Prix contingent are about to begin yet another round of the FIM Motocross World Championship. The popular circuit of Agueda, Portugal, will act as the host this time around and the time zone is actually slightly different to what has been experienced thus far. All of the information that is needed to follow the action is available below, however, so there should not be any problems at all.

Information

– The MX Vice team are already at the Grand Prix of Portugal, held at Agueda, and will be covering the event extensively from this point on. There will be reports, analysis, opinions, interviews, images, podcasts, videos and much more across all channels. Follow motocrossvice on Twitter and mxvice on Instagram for more from round five of MXGP. MX Vice will be your hub this weekend.

– Seeing as we are at the track and have a better look at the action than what you will get on your television, we will be providing updates all-weekend long. Connection should not be too much of a problem so, with that in mind, you should load up this page now and prepare to visit it frequently across the weekend.

– Do you want to feel closer to the action, but sit on your couch at the same time? Of course. Fantasy MX Manager, the ultimate motocross game, is based around the FIM Motocross World Championship for the second year in succession and offers fans the chance to win some incredible prizes. 24MX have put up £20,000 worth of vouchers and it is even free to enter. What more could you want?

– How can you watch the action this weekend? MXGP-TV will have the qualifying races live, as well as the motos and some bonus content. It costs a small amount, but is more than worth it now that all of the previous races are archived. There is more than enough content on there to keep you entertained.

– Rain threatened to spoil the Portuguese event, but it seems that the Grand Prix contingent may just escape it. It is not meant to rain tomorrow, Saturday, but then light showers are expected on Sunday. Those could turn out to be nothing though.

– Those of us in Portugal are on the same time zone as the United Kingdom, which means that fans in Southern California are eight hours behind. What if you are at the fourteenth round of Monster Energy Supercross in Minneapolis? There is a time difference of five hours. Australian residents in Sydney are nine hours ahead of us too, so please adjust the timetable accordingly. The one above is based on local time.
