Yamaha Motor Europe, branch Benelux proud main sponsor MX Lierneux circuit

Renewed circuit will be the new beating heart of motocross in Belgium

Yamaha Motor Europe, branch Benelux is pleased to announce that they have become the official main sponsor of the revamped MX Lierneux circuit in Belgium, which will officially open its doors to motocross enthusiasts from all over Europe on May 22nd. This partnership marks a new phase in Yamaha’s commitment to motocross and brings numerous benefits to both Yamaha and the MX Lierneux circuit.

Perfect conditions all year round

Recognized by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), MX Lierneux is not an unknown name in the motocross world. The circuit has previously hosted prestigious European Championships and is regularly visited by MXGP riders for practice sessions. With a hard surface that efficiently drains any rain, it is possible to ride on the track all year round. The track dries quickly and therefore offers optimal riding conditions in every season. The many natural and artificial humps are perfect for beginners and professional riders alike to practice and refine their jumping techniques.

Riders of all levels can ride training sessions on the revamped track. MX Lierneux not only welcomes traditional dirt bikes but is also open to ATV riders, making it a versatile hub for all off-road enthusiasts. As a testament to Yamaha’s long-standing commitment to motorsport, the circuit will also serve as a venue for future Yamaha events, including the MX Pro Tour and the bLU cRU YZ practice sessions and races. This class is specially designed to attract young talent.

New era

André Mathieu, the proud manager of MX Lierneux, is happy with the new partnership: ‘This is a great new step in our development. With Yamaha as our main sponsor, we can usher in a new era for MX Lierneux. Together, we will put MX Lierneux even more firmly on the map as the beating heart of the Belgian and international motocross world.”

Mario Janssen, Country Manager Yamaha Motor Europe, branch Benelux, is also delighted with the collaboration. He said: “With this new main sponsorship, we as Yamaha Motor Europe, branch Benelux reaffirm our commitment to the sport, and our ongoing commitment to take both the sport and its riders to the next level.”
