The remaining 2 Wild Card Riders chosen by Youthstream will be announced one month before the first Grand Prix in Zolder, at the same time the 2 wild card Riders and 2 reserve riders chosen by the FMNR will also be announced.
Youthstream is very proud to have built the MX1 class to be the elite class, but surely the Teams and Riders that are not accepted in the 2004 MX1 World Championship will be encouraged to participate in the MX2 class.
The President of Youthstream, Giuseppe Luongo, spoke of his satisfaction of the belief and support received through Youthstream’s work in Motocross, “We not only have the proof of our efforts through the TV coverage (as announced in the last press release), but we also have a strong interest from Organizers (16 events accepted after 23 requests), and now a huge demand of Teams and Riders. The 2003 MXGP Class (currently MX1) had an average attendance of 35 Riders per Grand Prix with a possibility of 40 Riders – this year, we have 30 available places and 55 requests. It is fabulous to witness the true belief in the new/old system, and I am getting excited at seeing Motocross live it’s second youth.”
2004 will be a fantastic year, Youthstream has finally managed to concentrate all the top Riders into one class, all with a similar bike (practically all have the 450 4 stroke). To continue the tradition of the podium, the podium and interviews for both the MX1 and MX2 classes will be held as an overall event after the second MX1 heat.
Youthstream wishes all the best to every Team and Rider for the 2004 season.
