“I’m honored and very excited to be working closely with M1GP,” founder and owner of Forza GP, Nathan Fitzgerald said of the new partnership. “I’ve considered M1GP one of the national leaders in promoting mini moto, and I am a true believer in structured training as offered in their rider clinics. It is no secret that our sport is struggling. The work RiseMoto has done to promote the Ohvales is like a shot of adrenaline for the industry. I’m just excited to be a part of the new era of youth road racers in the U.S. and I’m confident future champs will come out of M1GP.”

“American road racing has needed a quality purpose-built mini GP class bike for years, and the Ohvale GP-0 is a great machine to fill the need. I’m really excited to be working with Nathan Fitzgerald and Forza GP, not only for the opportunity they’ll offer racers and advanced M1GP Rider Clinics student riders, but also for the vision our two brands share of cultivating a pathway for a new generation of riders excited about the sport of motorcycle road racing and ultimately get American racers to compete at the international level.” – Young Lee, M1GP.

The Forza GP Ohvale program will offer sponsorship packages for young riders racing an Ohvale with M1GP.
