Maxime Renaux

Maxime Renaux's journey with Yamaha has been nothing short of remarkable. From his early successes in 2015, where he won three EMX125 races and was crowned Junior 125cc World Champion, to his incredible achievements in more recent years, the young Frenchman has shown a natural talent for motocross.
His MX2 debut in 2018 saw him race five rounds of the FIM MX2 World Championship as a wildcard rider, and by 2019, he finished his first full-term in MX2, securing a maiden podium finish and a respectable seventh place overall. In 2020, Renaux made it clear that he was a force to be reckoned with, finishing third in the MX2 World Championship and claiming his first ever Grand Prix win.
The 2021 season marked a turning point for Renaux as he joined the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 team. His impact was immediate, with 14 podiums, 23 top-three race finishes, and five Grand Prix wins under his belt. This incredible performance led Renaux to become the first Yamaha rider to win the MX2 World Championship since 2007.
Renaux's achievements continued in 2022 as he joined Yamaha's top-tier motocross team, competing in the premier MXGP class aboard the YZ450FM. Despite being a rookie, the 22-year-old quickly adapted to the more powerful bike and consistently challenged seasoned 450cc riders. His impressive season included four qualifying race wins, six championship race wins, and seven podium finishes, earning him a well-deserved fourth place in the world ranking.
As we look ahead to 2023, Maxime Renaux is more determined than ever to fight for the MXGP world title. His staunch dedication and enormous talent combined with his long-standing partnership with Yamaha, makes him a force to be reckoned as he sets his sight on a maiden premier class world title.
