Scritto venerdì 23 Ottobre 2020 alle 21:14.

The European EMX250 Championship is the most competitive series for young riders with dreams of being an MXGP World Champion. It’s tough. To win, you have to be ready, both physically and mentally. You need to have a great bike and an even better team.


Winning at this level takes more than just talent. It takes heart, dedication, commitment and sacrifice. It may seem like a lot, but if you ask anyone that has mounted the top step of the podium, the sacrifice is worth it.

– If anyone knows what it takes, it’s the two-time European Champion Thibault Benistant who has climbed the Yamaha Racing pyramid with titles in both MX2 feeder classes, EMX125 & EMX250

– As a result, the 18-year-old kid from Avignon, France, has been drafted into Yamaha’s top-tier MX2 team, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2, where he will race a works YZ250FM inside the 2021 MX2 World Championship alongside Jago Geerts & Maxime Renaux #959. But first, he will make his MX2 debut aboard his Hutten Metaal Yamaha Racing GYTR kitted YZZ250F, the same bike he took to the title three days ago.

– What did it take to get there? Here is a little look inside the final round of the EMX250 Championship in Lommel, Belgium ft. insight from Hutten Metaal Yamaha Racing’s Rider Coach & Team Manager Herjan Brakke!
