Michele Cervellin started off the season with the Martin Racing Technology Honda team but after a number of impressive riders was picked up by the SM-Action Yamaha team.
The Italian is having a good season and currently sits eighth in the MX2 World Championship despite missing two rounds through injury. The SM-Action Yamaha team have decided to reward Cervellin for his good season as they’ve both agreed a deal for the 2019 season.
However, it’s even better for Cervellin as he has an option to stay with the team for 2020 in what will be his rookie year in the MXGP World Championship.
It’s good for the Italian to have this option as there’s a lot of riders in their final year of the MX2 World Championship next year who will be looking rides in MXGP the year after.
The team have also recently announced that Maxime Renaux will contest the MX2 World Championship with them, it remains to be seen if they will keep Alvin Ostlund and have three riders contest the series.
