What is YZ125 bLU cRU Cup?
The opportunity of a lifetime.
Yamaha’s bLU cRU programme is a platform to support the next generation of young riding talent in both road and off-road racing. The platform creates a professional environment that is used to encourage, nurture and build tomorrow’s racing stars through the guidance and unparalleled experience of the Yamaha Racing world.
For young ambitious off-road riders, the YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup provides the perfect entry into Yamaha’s racing pyramid. Riders that race YZ125’s inside their National 125 Championships can apply pre-season to be part of the program. Once accepted, they will be provided with a bLU cRU package that has a number of benefits, including Yamaha Racing Paddock Blue clothing, a bLU cRU sticker set for their YZ125 machine, national bLU cRU mastercamps, VIP visits to local MXGP rounds and more.
The top performing riders (up to a maximum of 40) in their National Championships will reach the YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup Superfinale, a true international race held at one of the world’s biggest motocross events. The top three finishers at the SuperFinale and two wildcard riders will move on to take part in a unique Yamaha Masterclass under the guidance, supervision and advise of the bLU cRU Ambassadors. From this, one lucky rider in each ‘Cup’ is picked to move up and join a Supported Yamaha team where he or she will race the next following EMX season.
Since the YZ125 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup’s inception in 2015 – it has grown into the most successful feeder program for the European EMX125 Championship where the three winners, Tim Edberg in 2015, Jörgen-Matthias Talviku in 2016 and the most recent winner have discovered that the bLU cRU program is the best way to start and manage their professional racing career.
