The calendar for the 2023 FIM Baja World Cup has been updated, with a new competition format introduced to suit.
Comprising a minimum of four and a maximum of ten events, the series is scheduled to be split between the Gulf States and Europe.
The competition got under way earlier this month with the Saudi Baja with the second round planned for Qatar in mid-March. As the season progresses there are two events scheduled for Spain and one stop in Hungary before a summer break.
Recommencing in early October in Portugal, the series is planned to conclude in November with races in the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.
According to the updated calendar the winner of the 2023 FIM Baja World Cup will be decided as follows: If between seven and ten events are held then only a rider’s best six finishes will count towards the final classification. If six or less events are held then all scores will be counted.
