When all is said and done

As the ABBA song goes, we are still striving for the sky, but for this year all 2017 FIM Awards Champions are now standing calmly, their titles well and truly won! After this weekend’s action, newly titled Maikel Melero (FIM FreeStyle World Champion) and Marc Márquez (FIM MotoGP World Champion) both complete the list; the FIM will proudly reward 36 World Champions, 12 teams and 4 awardees at the 2017 FIM Awards Ceremony in Andorra-la-Vella.

Some highly prestigious guests will be among us and celebrating our Champions in the Andorran capital. Well-known faces will be there for the umpteenth time like Toni Bou (22 times FIM Trial and X-Trial World Champion), Emma Bristow (4 times FIM Women’s Trial World Champion), Jonathan Rea (hat-tricking FIM Superbike World Champion) and Marc Marquez (4 times MotoGP World Champion) as well as “newbies” Eddie Jay-Wade (FIM 85cc Junior Motocross World Champion), Franco Morbidelli (FIM Moto2 World Champion) and Frenchman Mathieu Tresarrieu (FIM Long Track World Champion). Also a regular at the FIM Awards, Ryan Dungey (AMA Supercross FIM World Champion) will sign off after a superb hat-trick of FIM World Titles (4th title overall), leaving the spotlight at the height of his glory.

This year’s edition will be marked by a newly conceptualised ceremony, with Stage Director Rodolph Nasillski bringing a fresh and creative impulse to the FIM’s traditional sports and entertainment bill. And because, with (almost) nothing left untried, the show must now go on, who better than World-class sports broadcaster and experienced Brit Gavin Emmett to bring it all to life and officiate as FIM Awards host.

Before the curtain goes up on the ceremony at 10pm, riders will please their fans with an autograph session in Andorra-la-Vella congress centre in the afternoon before donning their suits and bowties and their gala dresses. Although the FIM Awards Ceremony is an invitation-only event, the FIM is eager to share this magical moment with the entire community by offering a LIVE-streaming feed during this glamourous night on www.fim-awards.com and through multiple live stories on social media. So, now that all is said and done, don’t miss a single news-feed and stay tuned on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to get the latest updates!
