David Luongo, Youthstream Vice-President: “Youthstream is very proud to welcome Wiseco to the MXGP World Championship family. MXGP has never been so popular in the United States and around the world. The large community of fans and companies coming from U.S.A that follow the world’s premier outdoor series is continuing to increase year after year and we want to thank Wiseco for help us spread this popularity. In 2019 we will once again have a very strong presence in Asia with two stops in Indonesia, and for the first time the MXGP series will travel to China in Shanghai and later Hong Kong for the grand finale.”
