  1. The six young Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Challenge riders are ready for the final round of the 2017 FIM Supersport 300 World Championship at Jerez this weekend as they look to finish off their seasons in style. Alfonso Coppola (SK Racing Team) became the inaugural Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Challenge Champion at the last round in Magny-Cours after recording his sixth podium of the season. The 20-year-old Italian now has the small matter of the WorldSSP300 championship to deal with, as he heads to Spain trailing the overall leader by just four points. Robert Schotman (GRT Yamaha WorldSSP300 Team), Mykyta Kalinin (Team MotoX Racing), Enzo De La Vega (GRT Yamaha WorldSSP300 Team), Kimi Patova (Team Kallio Race System) and Renzo Ferreira (Team Kallio Race System) all return to action plus they will be joined in Jerez by the Indonesian wildcard rider Galang Hendra Pratama (Team MotoX Racing), who makes his second appearance of the season after impressing in Portimao.
  2. The Pata Yamaha Official STK1000 Team are ready for the season finale at Jerez this weekend, the final round of the 2017 STK1000 European Championship. Florian Marino heads to Spain second in the overall standings, just eight points behind the leader, knowing he has a chance to become champion. His teammate Roberto Tamburini's aim will be to try and secure third in the championship standings as he looks to end an impressive 2017 season on a high.
  3. GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team's Lucas Mahias arrives at the penultimate round of the 2017 FIM Supersport World Championship in Jerez this weekend with a chance of being crowned champion. The 28-year-old French rider leads the championship by nine points with just two races remaining, meaning Mahias can wrap up the title with one race left if he leaves Jerez leading the standings by more than 25 points. His teammate Federico Caricasulo will be looking to build on his third podium of the season last time out at Magny-Cours as he aims to finish the year in the strongest fashion possible.
  4. Maverick Viñales and Valentino Rossi had little time to rest after last weekend's Japanese Grand Prix. The Movistar Yamaha MotoGP teammates arrived in Victoria, Australia, just a few days later for the second race of the triple header.
  5. Wilvo Yamaha Official MXGP's Arnaud Tonus was the first and only rider to race the all-new 2018 YZ450F during the Czech, Belgian and Swiss Grands Prix. Despite only spending minimal time on the bike, the Swiss sensation has remained an incredible force within the world's most prestigious motocross series, MXGP, where he has gone from strength-to-strength on-board the all-new machine. His race win at the MXGP of Switzerland in August was the first of his career inside the premier class and is a testament to how good the all-new YZ450F is. With the 2018 YZ450F being completely overhauled and redesigned, we spoke to him about what influenced him to jump on a completely different bike in the middle of the season and how some of the most challenging aspects have been handled.
