Youthstream and FIM meet the 2014 Organizers in Monaco FUNCHAL (Portugal), 4th December 2013 – On the 1st December Youthstream hosted the annual organizers meeting in Monaco headed by Mr. Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream, and Dr. Wolfgang Srb, FIM / CMS Director. Youthstream presented the novelties for 2014 and the organizers had the opportunity to present their venues. Mr Giuseppe Luongo started the meeting by welcoming all the organizers, especially the new venues and announced that in 2015 there will be some more new countries entering: “The major goal is to cover the entire world, not only with television, which is already happening, but reaching all the areas of the world with our Championship events”. The President of Youthstream continued explaining how important the cooperation amongst Youthstream, FIM and Organizers is in order to have a successful event, presenting the 2013 successful TV coverage and audience and social network. Both Mr Luongo and Dr Srb highlighted the safety as one of the main aspects to work on for 2014: “We will redesign some tracks in order to make them safer for riders, workers and fans, and at the same time keeping the public close to the action maintaining the soul of Motocross. We all need to work together to make it happen and find the balance between innovation and tradition”. Mr Luongo also placed special attention on the MXGP Academy, which is a very important project for Youthstream at the moment. “The main goal is finding talented young riders from around the world and bring them to Europe where they would be placed in a professional structure and receive dedicated formation. These riders would have the opportunity to grow in the European Championship, racing on the same tracks as the MXGP riders and in front of the same spectators as the World Champions”. Dr. Wolfgang Srb took the floor sharing Mr Luongo’s thoughts about exporting MXGP to all continents and creating local heroes. Dr Srb highlighted the importance of improving the safety on the race tracks announcing that former FIM Race Director Dave Nicoll will still be involved in MXGP leading the working group that will be in charge of improving the safety on the tracks.

"นักแข่งโมโตครอสโลก เปลี่ยนใจหันมาแข่งตุ๊ก-ตุ๊ก" The MXGP riders change their bikes for a Tuk-Tuk By Marionna Leiva | 08 Mar 2013
Today most of the MXGP riders visited the track at Si Racha where the second Grand Prix of the season will be hosted. Some of them had also the opportunity to ride a traditional Tuk-Tuk, which is the most common means of public transport in Thailand.
After making some warm up laps with the Tuk-Tuk, a two-lap race was organized and the riders were divided in four different groups. Kawasaki Racing Team’s Gautier Paulin was driving a Tuk-Tuk with his teammate Jeremy Van Horebeek and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jordi Tixier, while CLS MX1 Kawasaki Monster Energy Pro Circuit’s Tommy Searle was driving the second Tuk-Tuk with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings and a Monster Girl. Monster Energy Yamaha’s Mel Pocock drove the third Tuk-Tuk with his team mate Maxime Desprey and Rockstar Bud Racing Kawasaki’s Livia Lancelot, and the last Tuk-Tuk was driven by Monster Energy Yamaha’s Steven Frossard, who had his teammates Christophe Charlier and Joel Roelants as co-pilots.
A Monster Girl marked the start of the race and Frossard’s Tuk-Tuk led most it, but in the end it was Pocock’s who arrived first at the finish line. Pete Thongchua, actor, racer, drifter and 2013 Yamaha Motorsport Brand Ambassador, joined the MXGP riders today and he is looking forward to watch them racing during the weekend.
All the riders had a great time together and they had loads of fun driving the Tuk-Tuk, but now it is time to focus on the MXPG of Thailand, which starts tomorrow with the free practice, pre-qualifying session and the qualifying races.
