2021 Yamaha YZ65 Cup

Yamaha Motor Australia in conjunction with Motorcycling Australia is pleased to announce the return of the popular one model junior MX events – the YZ65 Cup. 

The series designed for nine to 12-year-olds was introduced in 2018 and ran in 2019 but fell foul of COVID in 2020. Now it is back with two standalone rounds at the Pro MX national events at Canberra on 2 May and Maitland on 27 June. 

YZ65 Cup is more than a race series, it’s a celebration of motocross designed to offer participants and their families a money-can’t-buy experience. Pitting out of the bLU cRU truck and with unparalleled access to YMA’s professional MX race teams, each YZ65 Cup participant is rewarded with memories that last a lifetime. 

The ethos of Yamaha’s YZ65 Cup is to make every rider and his or her family feel like they are part of the Yamaha factory race team, courtesy of the unique bLU cRU wide range of benefits.

The YZ65 Cup aims to boost grassroots entry level dirt bike riding by offering a unique and fun experience,” explains YMA Sales and Marketing Manager Matthew Ferry. “Participants come away feeling like factory racers with huge grins on their faces and lifetime memories. That’s what makes the YZ65 Cup the most eagerly anticipated dates on the calendar,” continues Ferry.
