Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP in 2019
The 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship was a memorable experience for all involved at the Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP team. The popular outfit entered the eighteen-round campaign armed with a potent line-up that consisted of Gautier Paulin and Arnaud Tonus.
Gautier Paulin is no stranger to the taste of champagne, as he nabbed twelve Grand Prix wins before joining Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP. Unsurprisingly, it did not take long for him to put his YZ450F up onto the premier-class podium for the first time. Paulin managed to do that at the second round, the Grand Prix of Great Britain, and followed that up with trips to the podium in Trentino, Lombardia and Germany. It was that German event that was the most memorable experience, as he shared the podium with Arnaud Tonus.
That was the first time in history that two Wilvo riders shared the Grand Prix podium at the same time, but the success did not stop there. Arnaud Tonus had already achieved four podium finishes before hitting that old-school circuit of Teutschenthal in Germany. Another podium finish was grabbed in the second half of the year as well, which took his season total to six. It is not surprising that after all of that he secured a top-five ranking in the final championship standings.
Gautier Paulin sat just ahead of Arnaud Tonus in the points – he was fourth – but has his sights set on taking a medal in the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship. Paulin was encouraged by the steps taken in the year and will be spurred on by the fact that Monster Energy Wilvo Yamaha MXGP will become the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing outfit from this point on. It is a massive leap forward for all involved and a testament to the hard work that has been put in. There will also be a third rider under the awning now, as Jeremy Seewer will return to the team after securing the silver medal in the premier class this year.
