Four More Days to Enter and Win a Dream Ride in The EMX125 Championship

If you’ve ever dreamed of being an Official Yamaha rider, you currently ride a YZ125 and you are born between 2001 and 2005 then there are four more days for you to enter the EMX125 Championship for your chance at a dream come true! Registrations so far have been a great success, with more than 80 riders registered. To continue a positive trend and make sure no one misses out, Yamaha has extended the registration, that now closes on 10th March!

In search of Europe’s next MX stars, Yamaha is running a competition where one promising young rider will be awarded a place on a fully backed Yamaha team for the 2018 European Championship EMX125 season.

The competition is open to all registered YZ125 riders who will be racing in 1 of 13 approved national championships. 44 of the best performing riders will then be invited to finish the season by racing in The YZ125 bLU cRU Cup Superfinale, which will be held on October 1st at the biggest and most prestigious event of the year, the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations, in Matterly Basin, England. The riders who finish inside the top three in the Superfinale, plus two wildcard riders selected by a jury, will be invited to attend the bLU cRU Masterclass at the end of the season.

The Masterclass is designed to inspire, educate and develop the next generation of motocross riders by providing an exclusive insight as to what it takes to be a champion. It will be run by a highly acclaimed bLU cRU ambassador and will take place over three days where the jury will select and reward one lucky rider who has proved he has the talent, motivation and desire to be something great, with a contract for the 2018 European Championship EMX125 season on the MJC Yamaha Official EMX 125 team.

Registration is FREE and has been extended to 10th March, so get in quick! For more information and to enter, click HERE and fill out the registration form and send it to YZ125bLUcRUcup@yamaha-motor.nl.
