JEREZ – THE WORLD CAPITAL OF MOTORCYCLING

Over the last almost twelve months the Spanish city of Jerez de la Frontera has enjoyed the proud honour of being appointed by the FIM as the first ever World Capital of Motorcycling.

This appointment was a new initiative to help raise awareness of the range of FIM motorcycling activities and to promote the host region simultaneously, in doing so giving Worldwide visibility to both.

Already a popular and well established stop on the FIM MotoGP calendar, Jerez has also welcomed an extensive programme of events during 2015 which included rounds of the Superbike, Enduro, Supermoto, Freestyle MX and of course MotoGP championships.

In addition to a packed schedule of sporting activities the beautiful Spanish city of Jerez will also host the FIM Women and Sustainability Conference just prior to the second coming of the FIM Gala Ceremony which will take place on Sunday 22 November.
