Youthstream’s President, Giuseppe Luongo, said, “Thanks to the intense
work of Philippe Rahmani (TV and IT Marketing Director of Youthstream)
now we have suceeded in having TV coverage that is much more than ever
before. This is a major step in bringing MX1, MX2, S1 and S2 to a
higher level than ever in its history. With this huge improvement in
TV, motorcycle manufacturers will be glad to invest in these FIM World
Championships as this will provide them with an enormous world wide
promotion. It is a remarkable feat that we have managed to sucessfully
increase the amount of TV coverage without touching the value of the
sport or the fans. It took a lot of convincing to make the TV stations
understand that Motocross especially needs to have 2 heats and it needs
to be broadcasted in the afternoon in order to forfill everybody’s
needs. Currently we are aiming to involve Japan, China and USA in the
FIM World Motocross and SuperMoto Championships, it looks like we will
acheive this in the very near future. I want to wish everybody a Happy
New Year and a 2004 year full of Motocross and SuperMoto.”
