Moulins celebrates Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences
Moulins, in Central France, is the stomping ground of Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences. This Saturday, the town celebrated the triumph of the 2016-2017 FIM EWC World Cup winner.
A 120-strong motorcycle parade wound through the streets behind the Yamaha #333, and people swarmed into the town’s central square to watch a huge concert followed by a ceremonial handover of the FIM EWC World Cup to Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences. Moulins pulled out all the stops to say congratulations and a big thank you to its home team, which doggedly made its way up the Superstock ladder since 2011 to pick up the Endurance World Cup this past season.
Standing behind team manager Yannick Lucot and riders Axel Maurin, Bastien Mackels, Florian Alt and Olivier Depoorter, the entire Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences crew drew cheers from the crowd for the perseverance and commitment that netted them this triumph.
Yannick Lucot is now facing a fresh challenge with the team’s move up into the premier category with the goal of conquering the FIM EWC world championship title. His first priority is to raise €150,000 worth of funding to take on 2018 with a Yamaha R1 in the Formula EWC.
