The FIM family finally reunites this coming Saturday at a very special annual awards ceremony at the Salle des Etoiles of the Monte-Carlo Sporting complex in Monaco. After last year’s presentation evening was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, on December 4 we will come together to celebrate our champions from 2020 and 2021.
All our Hertz FIM Trial World Championship winners will be on hand to receive their coveted gold medals from last year and this year, with our champions relishing the opportunity to rub shoulders with stars from different disciplines including MotoGP champion Fabio Quartararo, flat track star Lasse Kurvinen and motocross hero Jeffrey Herlings.
