Yamaha’s Euro youth talent contest opens

Registrations are now Open for the 2019 YZ125, YZ85 and YZ65 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup.  Since 2015, the YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup has been the best opportunity for young MX riders to find their feet in the world of professional racing. Yamaha Motor Europe are widening the field in 2019 by adding the 85cc and 65cc classes to the mix.

If you’re riding a YZ125, YZ85 or YZ65 in your national championship, you’re eligible to join the bLU cRU. Forty riders from each class will be invited to finish the season by riding in the 2019 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup SuperFinale at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations in Assen, the Netherlands. 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 at the end of the season.

The bLU cRU Masterclass is an event specifically designed to give young riders a taste of what the racing world can throw at them as well as being a place to receive expert tuition from Yamaha Racing superstars: bLU cRU ambassadors. They’ll compete, learn, grow and develop over three days of intense training and competition. At the end of the three days, one YZ125 rider will be chosen to compete in the 2020 season for a Yamaha Motor Europe N.V. supported team, and the 65 and 85 riders will carry concrete technical support for the next season.

Please follow the instructions at the following links, YZ125, YZ85, YZ65 and sign up as soon as possible. Make sure you meet the requirements and… jump into the bLU cRU experience!

2018 YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup finalist Magnus Smith will make the biggest step of his racing career in 2019, stepping up to the MJC Yamaha EMX125 Team. 15yr old Smith will replace 2018 YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup winner Kevin Brumann who will remain with Yamaha for 2019, aboard his YZ125 under the guidance of Yamaha Switzerland Distributor, Hostettler. Yamaha Motor Europe is pleased to announce that Smith will join Florian Miot and Luca Diserens on the MJC Yamaha EMX125 team where the trio will contest the 2019 EMX125 Championship onboard GYTR kitted YZ125 machines.
