Information

– The MX Vice team are already at the Grand Prix of Latvia, held at Kegums, 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 seven of MXGP. MX Vice will be your hub from this point on.

– Those of us in Latvia are two hours ahead of the United Kingdom, which means that there is a difference of one hour to mainland Europe. Fans in Southern California are ten hours behind and then Australian residents in Sydney are seven hours ahead. Please adjust the timetable accordingly, as it is based on local time.

– 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, 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.

– It is hard to recall the last time that the Grand Prix of Latvia took place in glorious conditions like this. It is very sunny here, with temperatures hovering around twenty-four degrees, and will be that way all weekend. Is it hot enough for riders to fade spectacularly? No, of course not, but some may begin to struggle a little just as things wind down.

– Fans in Latvia are really in for a great treat this weekend, as the EMX125 and EMX250 classes will be in action. Those are the most popular support groups, which is hardly surprising, so having them both on track on the same weekend will leave a lot of locals in a good mood. One hundred and sixty riders have travelled to Latvia to compete in those classes. These entry lists offer a more detailed look at who will be taking to the circuit.
