On the other hand it is very important for Youthstream to strengthen our relationships with historically best Organizers, and the Grand Prix of Latvia, here in Kegums, is one of them. The venue, the track, the facilities and the quality of the organization are simply great. The collaboration with the Organizer Kristers Sergis and the President of the Latvian Motorcycle Federation Martins Lazdovkis are also very good. On last Thursday we were invited for a meeting by the Prime Minister of the country, Mr. Maris Kucinskis which showed the high level of interest of Latvia to continue to host such an event.

I also wish to say thank you to Martins, the new President of the Latvian Federation for his support on this event”
President of the Latvian Motorcycle Federation Martins Lazdovskis concludes: “First I wish to thank Youthstream for trusting that such event could happen here in Kegums and Krister Sergis for the efforts that he put into the improvement of the facilities. This shows the great cooperation between Youthstream and the local Organizers. Many countries now wish to be part of the Motocross World Championship calendar and we are very proud to be included for the next 3 years.”
