I am grateful for the work and collaboration of all those involved, which has turned us into one of the best events of the World Cup. Throughout the weekend, those who come to enjoy the championship, they will be able to access our wide gastronomic offer. In addition, we will have a motorhome area enabled and those who come by motorcycle will be allowed to park next to the circuit,” said Alexis Martín, manager of intu Xanadú, in the presentation of the event.

For his part, the vice president of the Spanish Motorcycle Federation, José Ramón García Martín, recalled that he has managed to make this circuit “known internationally”, of which he recalled that “one of its added values ​​is its good location.” “Thanks to all those involved, Community, City Council and organization, for their help and work to move this forward,” he stressed.

Luis Quiroga, mayor of Arroyomolinos, gave value to the fact that the Motocross World Championship once again passes through “a municipality of 36,000 inhabitants” and that “it has achieved a feat far removed from any pool, such as being among the best on the international circuit.” “For us it is an honor to be part of this adventure and it represents an opportunity to make ourselves known beyond our borders,” he admitted.

On behalf of the organization of the event, which corresponds to the company ‘Last Lap’, its promoter, Diego Muñoz, praised a circuit that “will be more beautiful than ever” and that is “without a doubt, the ‘hottest’ in the World Championship” thanks to the fact that it has “six grandstands bordering the sand, which make the drivers feel that the public is with them.”

The Madrid event will feature the presence of the Galician Jorge Prado, current MXGP world champion, the ‘queen’ category of motocross, and the Catalan Daniela Guillén, current world runner-up.
