MX Sports Pro Racing has announced a renewed agreement with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to provide anti-doping testing and educational support services for the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

This year’s championship will mark the seventh season USADA has been affiliated with the series, overseeing the prohibited use of banned substances.

“We know that anti-doping is as important to our athletes and to the sport of motocross as any other major sport, and we’ve gone to great lengths to provide our riders and teams a program that addresses their needs,” said president of MX Sports Pro Racing, Davey Coombs.

“In working with USADA, we’ve been able to protect the sanctity of the sport, working in the best interest of our competitors, and continue to refine the anti-doping measures to ensure all races are conducted on an even playing field.”

The 2020 season begins on Saturday, 16 May, with the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Rancho Cordova, California.
