Last weekend in Czech Republic he raced the MX2 Grand Prix
Moto 1, 11th
Moto 2, 11th
9th overall
that's pretty good for his first Grand Prix.
That would be awesome to have 3 USA riders in the MX2 class.Photo

A good weekend for Weltin, hope he sticks it out and works his way to the big show and becomes a legitimate GP rider

Once again goes to show that the EMX class is no joke.

No that was a 1 race deal to remplace Bryliakov (Russian rider).
I heard he will try to join DRT for 2018, but with the fact of Monster Energy stop to sponsor any mx2 team like Kawasaki, I don't know what will be DRT in 18 ..
Charbonneau had a discussion with blue crew but there is a lot of rider better than him here ..

This is news to me, no more Monster money for the Kawasaki teams?

Yep I just saw that on Searle Instagram, I don't know more Marshall told me that was just for one but maybe with the "good" results that will change.

And yes no more Monster money for any Mx2 team (they will sponsor just Yamaha official who's Kemea, I don't know exactly why but Monster Energy move to Yamaha) and Kawasaki Mx2 team close at end of 17.
DRT still Kawasaki but no official team.
I heard KRT MX1 got money for 2018 to race 1 Mx2 rider.

Good point. The only EMX250 races left are Switzerland in two weeks and France over a month after that. DRT has a bike standing idle so maybe he could ride the four races outside of those two in MX2.

It's nice to see that kids over here are finally seeing the potential in Europe again. For so long everyone looked at it as career suicide. The 250 class is so stacked here because of teams fielding riders for 2 coasts in SX that there's no room left to be on a competitive team when they go pro.
