"We are very happy to help FIM Europe to develop their sporting activities. For sure FIM Europe is very committed to the development of its programme at the grass root level. For sure many of the world championship riders are coming from the continental levels. We can see success in many disciplines like Trial, Enduro, Motocross, SuperEnduro, Circuit Racing and Track Racing. Sharing technical rules between FIM and FIM Europe for growing disciplines like E-Bikes (electric bicycles) and SSVs (Side by Side Vehicles) is crucial. It was an important meeting to share our expertise in all the fields."
