With the announced retirement of nine times motocross world champion Stefan Everts at the end of this season, Yamaha is very pleased to have signed both Joshua Coppins and Marc de Reuver for the 2007 MX1 world championship season. The new signings will have a tremendous challenge in trying to maintain the team’s past and present winning success, but Yamaha believe that the 2005 MX1 vice world champion Joshua Coppins (29 yrs, New Zealand) and this year’s MX2 world championship title challenger Marc de Reuver (23 yrs, The Netherlands) both have the speed and talent to become worthy successors in the Yamaha Motocross Team.

From now on people can leave Sweden and get back to normal nights: here the sunlight is on until 11 pm and comes back at 3 in the morning.
There is a lot of time to be active and motocross felt exactly like that today: the day was actually very busy with the FIM Women’s World Cup joining the usual MX races and some spectators came to the track at 7 am already! They actually did the right choice because the area around the circuit got crowded during the day and at the end spectators were 26500 for the entire weekend.
