Youthstream and the MX Teams agree and commit for stability

Posted:

This year the World Motocross Championship paddock and the promoter Youthstream had some well documented difficult moments. During the year many discussions went ahead on how to improve the conditions for the teams and riders. Lately Youthstream and the Mxtag Teams, a group made up of teams and riders, have decided to make a take step towards a better relationship and understanding. Both parties are happy to announce that substantial progress has been made and they have agreed on the following: Effective for the season 2006 and further: To limit the number of GP to a maximum of 15 rounds per year, including a maximum of 2 overseas rounds. To supply the Teams with an extra help for the overseas GPs with a freight package of 300 kg in addition to the travel indemnity of 3.000,00 Euro for the top 15 riders in both MX1 and MX2 classes. Youthstream will offer a Teams bonus program for the final FIM MX1 & MX2 World Championship classifications as follows:
  • 1st position 20.000 Euro
  • 2nd position 10.000 Euro
  • 3rd position 8.000 Euro
  • 4th position 7.000 Euro
  • 5th position 5.000 Euro
Power supply and TV signal to be supplied free of charge to riders, Teams and industry partners (living camper area and paddock). The supply of a professional mobile medical unit and assistance provided at all GP‰Ûªs at no charge for the riders, teams and industry partners. The Teams have accepted to have the paddock access for the public to be charged at a suggested price of 5,00 Euro. The funds collected will help Youthstream to partially finance these above costs. From now on, the Teams will name three Team managers to represent all teams status (factory and private) to continue dialogue and partnership with Youthstream and the FIM during a minimum of three official meetings per season. "I'm happy for this great news", said Gerard Valat the representative of the Mxtag teams "This is a great step from Youthstream which demonstrates open minds solved problems. I want to thanks Mr. Luongo, this will definitively help the participants and will bring a better atmosphere in the paddock". The President of Youthstream's Giuseppe Luongo said, "It's also a pleasure to finally have an open dialogue with teams and that a large majority of people involved in Motocross realise the improvements that have been made. The Teams are a big part of the show and I'm glad that we can now help them with more benefits".
