Initiated by Youthstream in 2011, European Motocross Championships 125cc and 250cc provided young-up-coming riders an opportunity to test their ability, gain valuable experience racing on MXGP track/venues and profile their talent to Media, industry and fans.

With gates spilling over to 100 plus riders at EMX 125cc, 250cc Rounds over the years, the success of the EMX Championships has proved to be THE stepping stone to race premier MXGP-MX2 classes.

 Jordi Tixier, Romain Febvre, Tim Gaiser, Pauls Jonas have all gained FIM World MX Championship Titles racing the tier system, supported at entry level through EMX 65cc, 85cc and latter 300cc classes to present day.

Objectives in mind to elevate racing for youth riders within Europe’s Motocross World Championships has been logistics on race schedule, catering of increased rider numbers, managing track conditions with x number more classes per GP. A far step outside traditional format of 2 MX1 and MX2 motos on one day.
