The Italian-Czech society M.C.F.cz, s.r,o. which has the headquarter in Slusovice, Czech Republic, is the owner of the brand CZ. Alessandro Ferrari who is the owner of the company and a big fan of motocross has prepared a 300cc two-stroke bike with the CZ brand to compete the European Championship EMX300 in Loket.

The brand CZ will be back on the motocross scene after 30 years.

This bike has Italian technology and it was finalised in Czech Republic with Czech components.

Between 1958 and 1983 the brand CZ was in the FIM Motocross World Championship with the official Team ČZ Strakonice. The CZ was very strong with the two-strokes but in 1958 the company started with the four-stokes, unsuccessfully.

The CZ factory riders achieved a total of 7 world titles: In 250cc the Belgian Joel Robert won 3 titles in 1964, 1968 and 1969 and one title was won by the Russian, Victor Arbekov in 1965. In the 500cc’s, 3 titles were won by the German rider Paul Friedrichs. In 1975 then the Czech Republic Team composed by Antonin Baborovký, Jiri  Churavý, Miroslav Novacek  and Zdenek Velky won the Motocross des Nations and that was the biggest success for Czech republic in motocross.

The last time a CZ bike was competing in the FIM Motocross World Championship was in 1985 at its home GP in Holice. The production of this bike stopped in 1991.

In those years big names such as Roger de Coster, Gaston Rahier, Sylvain Geboers, Jaroslav Falta, Miroslav Soucek, Vlastimil Valek, Petr Buono, George Stodůlka, Otakar Toman, Vladimir Kavínová, Guennadi Moisseev and many others rode a CZ bike.
