What’s the race format is going to be?
We will have 4 races total during the weekend, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday with 15 minutes motos. In the mean time a freestyle show will be presented by two local riders and a rider from Canada. It’s going to be very excited to watch. Let’s throw in the mix a bikini contest and we will have quiet of an astoning show.
Why did you choose to be involved in this unique event?
I met my partner, Nicolas Espana, one day in California and it wasn’t planned or anything. We talked about lot of differents things, I liked the guy and he finally asked me if I will be interested in helping him bringing a great race to Mexico. Nicolas had the city agreed to it already because they want to promote this beautiful region to the world. We talked back and forth for a few months. We finally came to a great project and here we are. It’s our first year, it’s not going to be perfect but we put our hearts into it. The goal is to have a fun race with no agressivity and block passing. It’s all about the fun of riding together and enjoy the Mexicans fans.
Is the World Celebrities Motocross Race a one shot deal and will we see more of it next year?
The WCMR is definitely here to stay. The city wants to do it every year. We have a lot of local sponsors but next year we’d like to step it up and get more money so we can promote a bigger event for everybody. I think it’s going to help the local riders as well. It’s tough for Mexicans to get a good ride.
