JAKARTA, June 25 (Xinhua) -- World champion of the 2018 World Motocross Grand Prix Jefrey Herling and many world-class crossers will compete in a championship this year in Indonesia's provincial capital of South Sumatra next month, an official said on Tuesday.

The director of the circuit revealed that a total of 60 world-class crossers have confirmed their participation with the committee.

The 2019 World Motocross Grand Prix is slated to be held from July 6 to 7, the committee said, adding that the 60 crossers will take part in two sport categories of MX1 and MX2.

Two world-class crossers (Antonio Cairoli and Tim Gaiser) will be among the registering crossers.
