Yamaha MotoGP Challenge with Lorenzo & Spies (Video)


Yamaha MotoGP Challenge (For Europeans Only)

Yamaha Motor Europe has just released this hilarious video promoting the “Yamaha MotoGP Challenge.” In the video, Yamaha Factory Racing riders Ben Spies and Jorge Lorenzo discuss this contest, which gives fans a chance to win one of three limited edition 50th Anniversary Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycles, one of the 15 wooden kids bikes, or one of 100 goody bags.

But for Americans, there’s a huge problem – the contest is only for the European fans. Bummer…especially because it sounds like fun. During the contest, European fans have to complete six challenges before being entered to win one of the prizes above.

Although stateside fans can’t enter the contest, they can still enjoy the attached video, displaying the many antics of the Texan Spies and the 2010 MotoGP Champion Lorenzo.
