According to Benjamin Forant
“I can’t give an exact date, but it will reopen in a few months.” In the words of Mélanie Larcheveque, memberAMC Gaillefontaine confirms it: motocross will soon return to Gaillefontaine.
The AMC Gaillefontaine association, founded at the beginning of 2022, has been reconstructing the so-called limestone circuit for almost six months. “We are a young and dynamic team with about twenty members and volunteers who help us,” explains a club member.
In order for the other to reopen the circuit, the work must be completed, but not only. “We also have administrative procedures. We are now affiliated with the FFM (French Motorcycle Federation, editor’s note), which is very important for us, says Mélanie Larcheveque. Our file must now be approved by the FFM and the prefecture. It will be enough, but we don’t have any information about the dates yet. »
Within a few months, work progressed well.
We restored the forest. Today we can already see the route, everything is clear, water and electricity are being installed.
However, there are still areas for recovery. “Our priority is to find a single-turn network that meets the conditions set by the FFM. But there is still a lot to do, such as cleaning, repairing the roof of the building or really layout solutions. »
Most of the work is done by members and volunteers. When winter comes, soldiers’ motivation could be impaired. It’s not so.
We are more motivated than ever! We see progress in six months, we didn’t expect to get there in such a short time. We are full of goodwill and will continue every weekend.
If the team struggles on the ground, the association relies on the second aspect: communication. “It is important for us to make ourselves known, either on networks or at events such as association days. We need to be everywhere and people need to get back into the habit of coming back to Motocross at Gaillefontaine. »
