Gautier Paulin, new to Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP for the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship, really needs no introduction. The twelve-time Grand Prix winner has been a firm fixture at thefront of the premier division over the last seven years and is even looking to progress further aboard the YZ450F.
Paulin is no stranger to the YZ450F, of course, as he made his MXGP debut on it in 2011 and won immediately with a breathtaking performance. Two of his Grand Prix victories were secured with the smaller YZ250F as well! The return to familiar surroundings will undoubtedly serve him well when gates drop on the first weekend in March.
