Federico Valentini – Vice President Global Motorcycle Marketing: “Just over one year ago the series was created in partnership with Infront Moto Racing, adding another important step to the ladder for young riders who dream of reaching MXGP, all while demonstrating just how capable e-powered motorcycles can be. In only its second year, the European Junior e-Motocross Series has continued to grow, and has become more and more popular. This was highlighted even further at the final round in Loket where the full circuit was used, which was incredible to witness and a testament to the performance of the EE 5. The series was designed to introduce younger riders to the MXGP paddock and give them a head start on understanding top level racing, how the tracks develop, and experience racing in front of huge crowds. It’s been an exceptional season and I’d like to thank all those riders and their families who chose to compete with the EE 5 and prove just how capable this e-powered machine really is.”
