Yamaha Motor Europe N.V. is delighted to announce the renewal of contract with current Monster Energy #yamaha Official #mxgp rider #romainfebvre. The agreement will see the defending #mxgp World Champion remain as an official #yamaha rider for the next three seasons, 2017 to 2019 inclusive.
The young Frenchman re-wrote the rulebook in his first year with #yamaha as a rookie in the #mxgp class in 2015. Febvre started confidently as he acclimatised to the class leading YZ450FM, quickly gaining confidence to arrive at his first podium at the second round of the season in Thailand, followed by his first #moto victory by the seventh round in Matterly Basin, Great Britain. From there he was unstoppable, calmly taking the fight to the front to the end of the season to record a stunning championship victory for #yamaha.
The defending champion got straight back into action this season, standing on the podium 13 times from 18 motos to sit in second position going in to his home round in France this weekend.
