UAM Asian MX Riders Goes To World MX GP

August 10th, 2009

The Asian motocross Commission, headed by its President, Stephan Carapiet has sent the current leader of the 2009 Asian motocross Championships - Thanart Penjan from Yamaha Jaw DID Thailand to the World MX GP in Loket, Czech on August 9, 2010. In cooperation with Youthstream contractual partner of the FIM and the Yamaha UTAG - UK team on board a factory prepared 2010 YZ250F works machine. In the first moto Thanarat placed 33rd out of 40  riders and was preparing for the second moto. The track had steep uphills and never in Asia do we have these kinds of race track.During the second moto during the middle of the race whilst running 29th position, the track deteriorated and was very rough after the MX1 riders and MX2 riders tore it up,  Thanart crashed hard in a rhythm section of the downhill double - double table top jump. He then needed to pit in the repair zone to repair bike damages and thus considered out of the final moto. This chance given to the Asian riders to participate in the world event is  a very good learning curve and in order to bring this riding style back to Asia. Recently , last month Mongolian Champion rider Erdenbileg Khalionbould was also sent to the World MX GP round in Teuschenthal for being the Asian MX Champion of 2008, and this exposure made him begin this riding style back to the Mongolian Asian MX Championships round recently held last July 2009 and he was wining the event before a bad crash that injured his wrist. This is an important accomplishment as well of the Asian Motorcycle union since our goal is to create the Asian Continental Motocross Championships and then elevate our riders to the world motocross grand prix of which is annually being done since 2003. Now his team manager Mr Samporn is planning for the logistics that Thai rider Thanarat is to participate in the World MX GP series for 2010. For more info you may check out
