Romain Febvre Joins Yamaha Factory Racing for 2015

Posted:

In the wake of an excellent 2014 FIM Motocross World Championship for Yamaha Factory Racing and Jeremy Van Horebeek with the works YZ450FM, Yamaha has announced that MX2 star Romain Febvre has signed to form a two rider spearhead in Michele Rinaldi‰Ûªs squad for the premier MXGP class in 2015.

Febvre, a former European Champion, has developed through three years in the FIM Motocross World Championship to emerge as a Grand Prix winner in 2014 and finish third in the MX2 standings; the highest classified athlete from a group who graduate to MXGP next season and the very top international stage.

The former supermoto racer ‰ÛÒ he also won the prestigious Mettet Superbiker event two weeks ago - took his first GP podiums in 2013 and made fantastic progress in 2014 to embellish his reputation as one of the FIM series‰Ûª brightest young prospects.

The 22 year old Frenchman is expected to form a promising bond with the YZ450FM that already shone in Van Horebeek‰Ûªs hands this year as he kept pace in the chase for the 2014 MXGP crown.

‰ÛÏI can finally start work this week and I‰Ûªve bought a plane ticket without a return journey at the moment because I‰Ûªm keen to get to Italy and then see what we have to do,‰Û
