The motocross world lost a long-standing California tradition to the global COVID-19 outbreak this week, as the Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle Club announced it’s bagging the 52nd running of the Hangtown Motocross Classic.
Word on the rest of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season isn’t available yet, as organizers said they’re going to keep tabs on the spread of the virus and make decisions as needed.
The sad news follows word last week that the rest of the Supercross season has been postponed indefinitely. With more postponements and cancellations every week, and a brutal national news cycle, 2020 is shaping up to be the year motorcycle fans have to branch out and make their own fun.
As hard as it is to swallow, the news isn’t really a surprise, given that California residents have been advised to go into lockdown, and events across the motorcycle racing world, including the Isle of Man TT and the start of the MotoGP season, have been postponed or outright canceled.
