They could still hold the 2020 MXDN as an all-European event, but no nations from outside the continent are willing to risk being quarantined for 14 days if they fly to Europe.

MXGP promoting group Infront Moto Racing has announced that the 2020 Monster Energy FIM Motocross des Nations scheduled to take place on the September 26-27in Matterley Basin, Great Britain, has been canceled. In Front said, “Despite all the efforts from the local organizer Steve Dixon and Infront Moto Racing, there is no other viable options but to cancel the 2020 edition of MXDN due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Additionally, Infront Moto Racing have received information from nearly all of the non-European MXDN teams normally attending the event that due to Covid-19 complications of travel and quarantine protocols, they will not be able to take part in this year’s event. Therefore, taking all these factors into consideration and with the goal to coordinate the greatest off-road event of the year at a very high level, Infront Moto Racing and the FIM have arrived to the conclusion to cancel the event and look forward to a phenomenal Monster Energy FIM MXDN in 2021!

Why? There are still more hardpacked tracks than sand tracks on the calendar. Besides, almost all GP riders train in sand most of the year.

If an outcome is expected, is it really Breaking News?  I realize that MXA & others labeled it as such, you didn't make that part up.

But with the US Nationals / MXGP seasons pushed into that time period, I fully expected there to be no MXoN, MEC, etc.

From the sound of it, they were planning on running it until the teams from others continents decided to not go.

Yeah I think they were going to try too, but I gave MXoN about a 0.0001% chance of actually happening.

From the perspective of 1 or 2 months ago it was managable with the low covid numbers. Unfortunately there is 2nd covid wave coming, with countries here going back to lockdowns and other measures, so the situation has changed quite a bit.

It's the same wave that is working it's way through the population of the world.  It's a virus as contagious as the common cold and we are all going to get it eventually.

I miss a normal life, but .3% is a really f***ing high death rate.         If you are in the high risk category, like my parents for example, its like dodging bullets when you go outside.  Those bullets, are fired by everyone else...   

The global economy generally doesn't mean crap if you're dead
