Mathis Valin joins Bud Racing Kawasaki Team for a multi year deal

After an excellent season in the 125 class in 2023, the brand-new 125 world champion has decided to join forces with the Bud Racing Kawasaki team to move up to the next category, the EMX250 European Championship.

With a view to developing young riders at the highest level, it seemed logical for Stéphane Dassé to sign the young Frenchman, after he had completed the grand slam of the French 125 championship by winning every round in this class.

Currently second in the EMX125 European Championship after winning three rounds, the 17-year-old from Vendée will be coached by Thierry Van Den Bosch and will move to Hossegor France (where the Team is based) this winter to train with the Team and prepare for the 2024 season. With the EMX250 European Motocross Championship as his main objective, this will be a year of learning for Mathis, who will also take part in the French Elite MX2 Championship and other prestigious events.

Stéphane Dassé: “We’re very happy and looking forward to working with Mathis over the coming seasons. Mathis is a motivated young rider who has done some great things this year after working with Valentin Teillet in Team 737 Performance. He’s open to all disciplines, including Supercross, Motocross and Sand, and that’s what appealed to me when I spoke to him. He’s going to have a big winter with Thierry to prepare for his move up to the EMX250 category, and I’m convinced he can surprise next year already.”

Mathis Valin: “I’m really looking forward to coming to live and work in the Landes, close to the team. The team is involved in several disciplines and that appeals to me a lot. The team seems very close-knit and family-oriented, and I think that’s going to push me to the top. What’s more, Thierry will be able to advise me and help me make the transition to the 250 as smooth as possible. See you soon on the team’s Kawasaki!”
