Yamaha Motor Europe MX Racing Manager, Erik Eggens, is looking forward to Seewer's growth.
"Jeremy Seewer is an exciting rider to have onboard the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team," Eggens said. "He joined Yamaha this year, after many years on another brand, and he had to move up into the premier class, MXGP, with a completely new bike and new team. That is not an easy transition for any rider, but Jeremy has done an amazing job and we feel that he is deserving of a place on the Factory Team in 2019. His season has been great so far, especially in terms of his progress and how he is racing. We feel that inside the Factory Team Jeremy will receive the support he needs to make that next step up onto the podium and this is something we are really looking forward to it."
With fifteen rounds from twenty of the 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship complete, Seewer - who is currently eighth place in the Championship Classification and is the best placed rookie - will finish the season onboard a YZ450F with full support from the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team where he will wrap the year up as captain of Team Switzerland at the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations in Red Bud, USA, on October 6th and 7th.
