It’s a good day for the Italian’s as it was confirmed earlier that Morgan Lesiardo will contest the MX2 World Championship in 2018 for the Marchetti KTM team. Another Italian has also decided to step up to MX2 next year as Simone Furlotti will contest the MX2 World Championship for the Yamaha-SM Action team.
Furlotti had a good year in the EMX250 series but missed out on the title to fellow Italian, Lesiardo but both will be hoping to put in good results in the MX2 World Championship next year.
Furlotti will only have one year in the class due to the age rule so if he puts in good results he could land himself a ride in MXGP for 2019.
It’s not yet confirmed but it’s thought that Alvin Ostlund will join Furlotti under the Yamaha SM Action team in 2018.
