minutes from Cáceres we find Malpartida de Cáceres and its beautiful motocross track Las Arenas, which takes its name from its medium/soft, compact
and sandy terrain. It is one of the most important motocross tracks in Spain and one of the few complaint with the FIM standards.
Track was born in 1974 and since then hosted regional and
national races of motocross and also classic motocross, in addition to the
sidecarcross world championship. Such longevity grants the place a respectable reputation in mx history.
There are several tracks. The
main one, which hosts the most relevant events and races, is more than one and a half kilometers long with an average width of 9
meters. There are 14 jumps of various types: tabletops, step ups, pyramids and so on. Amongst all of them we have to highlight a spectacular whoop section that is 70 meters long. There
is a 6-kilometer cross-country/enduro zone that combines a rocky ground with the compact sandy pack. This one also hosts cross country national competitions. For the little ones there is also a children's track that allows kids to start riding a motorcycle in a safe and controlled place.
Facilities include dressing rooms, restrooms, showers, press room, boxes and timing tower. Track is usually watered and groomed when open and a timing system is available.
Motorcycle Club Las Arenas organizes races and free practice sessions. In addition, the Off Road School impart weekly motocross and enduro classes for different levels
throughout the year, except July and August due to the high
temperatures in the area.
There is the possibility to rent dirtbikes.
