Since 2015, the YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup has been the best opportunity for young motocross riders to find their feet in the world of professional racing. This unique program is open to either YZ125, YZ85 or YZ65 youth riders participating in a FIM approved national championships.
Throughout the season, all youth riders signed up to the program will accumulate bLU cRU points, based off race results achieved in their respective national FIM championships. The best 40 riders in each class will be invited to race at the bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup SuperFinale, at the prestigious Monster Energy Motocross of Nations – racing alongside elite motocross stars.
Depending on the Coronavirus situation, the top three riders from each class competing at the SuperFinale will be joined by two wild card riders from each class at the bLU cRU Masterclass, which is planned to take place at the end of the season.
The bLU cRU Masterclass is a prestigious event specifically designed to give young riders, from road and off-road backgrounds, a taste of what the racing world can throw at them and is a place to receive expert tuition from Yamaha Racing’s bLU cRU ambassadors. They’ll compete, learn, grow and develop over three days of intense training and competition. At the end of the program, one YZ125 rider will be chosen to join Yamaha’s Official EMX125 Team where he or she will compete in the EMX125 Championship! And the 65 and 85 riders will win technical support from GYTR for the next season.
For young riders who want the greatest opportunity in taking their riding to the next level, now is the time to enter. Please follow the instructions at the following link and sign up as soon as possible. Entries will close 28 February 2021.
