Seewer to Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP for 2019

Seewer to Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP for 2019

Yamaha Motor Europe N.V is pleased to announce that Jeremy Seewer has been drafted into to the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team where he will campaign a YZ450FM alongside the former MXGP World Champion Romain Febvre inside the 2019 FIM MXGP World Championship.

The former two-time MX2 vice World Champion has made a successful transition into the premier class, MXGP, where he has formed a special relationship with the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team and has improved his performance onboard his YZ450F at each and every Grand Prix thus far.

With fifteen rounds from twenty of the 2018 FIM Motocross World Championship complete, Seewer – who is currently eighth place in the Championship Classification and is the best placed rookie – will finish the season onboard a YZ450F with full support from the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team where he will wrap the year up as captain of Team Switzerland at the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations in Red Bud, USA, on October 6th and 7th.

Jeremy Seewer
2019 Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Rider
“It’s really cool to have this opportunity, it feels amazing that after one year since moving to Yamaha I have already made it into the Factory Team, especially after what happened to me before I moved to Yamaha, so when I had no deal, Yamaha were the ones that took me and gave me a chance. I got to join the Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP Team and I am very grateful for that, and now one year later I am able to move to the Factory Team and that is awesome. At the same time, I am a little bit sad to leave the Wilvo Yamaha boys already, it’s a great team with good people around me. They’re like family to me, but still, we need to move on and I am really looking forward to working with the Factory Team and on the Factory YZ450FM.”

Erik Eggens
Yamaha Motor Europe MX Racing Manager
“Jeremy Seewer is an exciting rider to have onboard the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team. He joined Yamaha this year, after many years on another brand, and he had to move up into the premier class, MXGP, with a completely new bike and new team. That is not an easy transition for any rider, but Jeremy has done an amazing job and we feel that he is deserving of a place on the Factory Team in 2019. His season has been great so far, especially in terms of his progress and how he is racing. We feel that inside the Factory Team Jeremy will receive the support he needs to make that next step up onto the podium and this is something we are really looking forward to it.”

Massimo Raspanti
Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team Manager
“It is good news to have confirmation from Yamaha Motor Europe to have Jeremy Seewer join the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team. He has been getting stronger at every round this year and he is still improving. I think he is a good rider with a bright future and for us it’s nice to have a young rider join the team, and one that already has experience on the YZ450F as it makes the development in the winter a bit easier than what it would if you have to start from scratch. We are really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
