The FIM WORLD JUNIOR MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP will take place August 26-28, 2022 in Vantaa, Finland. Canada will be sending a team of riders who wish to take part in the event.

The Team Manager is Carl Bastedo. He will be assisted by Zeb Dennis and Buddy Ford. Zeb is a USMCA certified motocross coach and Buddy is the head Quebec official at the Challenge Quebec Provincial Motocross Series. All three are licensed FIM officials for international events.
