European Honda 150 Championship in 2018 – Honda to cease 150 European Championship as part of renewed Motocross strategy

EMX150
As part of its new strategy for Motocross racing, Honda has taken the decision to cease the 150 European Championship as it shifts its focus to increasing support of the EMX250 and MX2 championships following the launch of the all-new CRF250R. The Honda 150 European Championship has been a resounding success; helping scores of children between the ages of 11-14 from around the world fulfil their dream of becoming a professional racer. The programme began in 2013 and over the years has produced some stunning racing while helping hone the talents of young riders who were all equipped with the Honda CRF150R. This year’s Honda 150 European Championship winner Andrea Adamo is the latest in a long list of distinguished alumni who have gone on to perform well in international competition including Tim Edberg, Jere Haavisto, Viking Lindstrom, Rick Elzinga, Emil Weckman, Hakon Fredrikson, Alberto Forato and Shana van der

European Yamaha YZ 125 SuperFinale at Matterley Basin (Great Britain)

47OSUE2Q60CLD0F8WWRC
Rain, mud and some intense bar-to-bar action in front of a loud and colourful crowd at the biggest event of the year - the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations - made for an exhilarating 2017 YZ125 bLU cRU Cup SuperFinale which saw Sweden's Arvid Lüning top the box ahead of two extremely talented Italians Francesco Bassi and Kevin Cristino. Overnight rain had drenched the spectacular Matterley Basin circuit which made for vastly different racing conditions in Race 2 today. With a blanket of drizzle smothering the venue, the gates dropped for the second and final race of the weekend. Francesco Bassi carved through the mud on his YZ125 to lead yesterday's race winner Jorgen-Matthias Talviku around the first turn. The Italian was fast on the opening lap, but chose to be smart instead of taking unnecessary risks and let Talviku go by on lap two. Talviku's technical ability was

EMX 150 at Assen (The Netherlands)

Podium_150_II_MXGP_18_NL_2017
The riders in the Honda 150 European Championship have made significant progress across the five rounds that have been run this season. That was evident during the final race of the season, which was held at the Dutch circuit of Assen this weekend, as brilliant battles raged on throughout the field. Andrea Adamo was right at the heart of those on-track fights, as he charged through the pack from outside of the top ten and claimed the title aboard his CRF150R. Adamo, who has shown a tremendous amount of raw speed thus far, claimed pole position at every round and won seven of the races that have been run. Although he was dealt some poor luck along the way, he showed tenacity each time and rebounded in a professional manner. That helped him claim the championship on the world’s greatest stage and in front of a packed grandstand. In the

Attachment-1
The KNMV (Koninklijke Nederlands Motorrijders Vereniging) has decided to change the Motocross Championship rules for 2018: All MX1 and MX2 classes will change the name. MX1 will become "450cc" and will be open for 2-stroke as well as 4-stroke engines (parity). MX2 will become "250cc" and will also be open for 2-stroke as well as 4-stroke engines (parity). All the other classes, from 50cc up to 125cc, will be exclusively 2-stroke engines. Rinze Bremmer, KNMV: "It is important to keep the sport affordable for all the classes; the decision goes in the right direction". "I think its a good decision to even up the cc for two and four strokes, also for the manufacturers”, commented the multichampion Jeffrey Herlings. “In the past riders like Carmichael could be competitive with a 2 stroke but because of the development of the 4 stroke engine the difference is to big now.
