We revive motocross
On October 12, the "Open Cup of the Ural Federal District DOSAAF Motocross" will be held. It is worth saying that in Magnitogorsk motocross competitions at various levels have not been held for the past three years, since the former track was in the water protection zone. Already this year, a plot of land at the address: Turgenev street, 11 was licensed and now there is in full swing work to create a new route.
“For the past three years, we, unfortunately, have not been able to host competitions on our territory,” explains Alexander Berchenko, head of the department for physical education, sports and tourism. - Now we are very pleased to present to you the beginning of a new era of motocross. And we will begin a new era immediately with a major event - the Open Cup of the Ural Federal District DOSAAF Motocross. We expect about 70 athletes from Orenburg, Kazakhstan, Sverdlovsk, Kurgan and Chelyabinsk regions. ”
According to Alexander Valerievich, these competitions are held in our city for the second time. They first took place on Lake Bannom in 2016. It should be noted that our athletes successfully show themselves at regional and all-Russian competitions. For example, yesterday the Magnitogorsk team returned from the competitions that took place in the village of Miass, where it took the second team place, and the pupils of our motorcycle club became winners in the individual championship. This once again confirms that this sport in Magnitogorsk has a good base and continues to develop. Upcoming competitions are an indicator of that.
In addition to the equipment of the new track, the Magnitogorsk motor park was not left without attention: last year, five new motorcycles of various classes were purchased.
“We tried both for athletes and for all Magnitogorsk residents to prepare a good track with a length of 1,400 meters,” says Viktor Korzhov, chairman of the Metallurg OOGO DOSAAF Russia Metallurg Orgonikidzevsky District. - Our athletes will try to show excellent results. The main goal is to win their races with other participants. And the rivals in our Urals are very strong. All spectators will have a great opportunity to see not only Magnitogorsk motorcyclists, but also athletes from other world-class cities. Also, viewers will see elements of both classic motocross and super motocross. ”
Competitions are open in nature, therefore, all interested motorcyclists are invited to participate. On October 12, at eight in the morning, registration of participants will begin. At ten o'clock the official training starts in all classes, and at 12 o'clock the grand opening of the competition will take place.
Everyone who wants to support the athletes or just enjoy the spectacular spectacle is invited to the competition at the following address: 11. Turgeneva Street. For orientation, you must follow special road signs.
