“It’s great that Rise Moto has stepped up to give the class champions and the runner-ups some really good payouts,” said MotoAmerica’s Lance Bryson. “I really like the fact that they also get the opportunity to do things like the Ohvale World Cup and the Aprilia/Ohvale 250 wild-card ride in Italy and a test on the bike before going there. The experience of racing overseas and against riders from other countries will prove invaluable in their racing careers. We can’t wait to see how these kids perform against each other this year in the MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul and also see how they go when they head overseas.”
