The top junior Motocross riders from around the world will compete at Horsham in the 2018 World Junior Motocross Championships.


Competitors from Europe, America, Asia, New Zealand and Australia will compete in 65CC, 85CC and 125CC classes.

One of the most popular motorsports in the world motocross is motorcycle racing on gravel, mud or grassy roads with the riders control and weight shifting allowing them to manoeuvre their bikes at full speed while performing tight turns and jumps.

The Horsham track is about 1.7 kilometres long and 8 to 10 metres wide for the most part. The starting grid comprises 40 mechanically dropped, self-penalising gates on an earthen pad. Obstacles include tabletops, step up, step down, whoops, ski jumps, triple-up, berms and off camber corners. Well constructed, it has many passing opportunities and is generally considered to be a fast, flowing style of track.
