Powered by Young Motion Racing snap up Meico Vettik

Estonian rider Meico Vettik and Dutch team Powered by Young Motion agreed on a deal for 2022, competing in the EMX250 class. Vettik will enter this championship riding a KTM 250cc two-stroke, hoping to return to his form during the 2020 EMX125 season where he finished 3rd overall. The 18 year old has EMX250 experience, riding 15 rounds in the past 2 years including a top 3 and multiple top 5 finishes. 

Meico Vettik:I am happy to be back on the two stroke for 2022 and with the help of KTM Estonia and Young Motion I expect to be able to compete for the top spots. The goal is to compete for the title in EMX250. In 2020 I rode in a similar privateer like setup and this works well for me so I am happy to announce this deal!

Wout ten Thije, co-owner of Young Motion: “We are very happy with signing Meico to our team. He is a proven winner in EMX125 and podium contender in EMX250 and only 19 years of age. Add to this that we are excited to see a 250cc two stroke compete up front so to be able to make this deal happen is very nice. We feel we now have a strong lineup for 2022!’’

With the signing of Meico Vettik the 2022 lineup for Powered by Young Motion is now complete, and consists of:
