HALL OF FAME: Yves Demaria

Born in Marseille on January 22nd 1972 – the youngest of two children, Yves Demaria was introduced to the world of motocross from an early age. His father, Guy, a carpenter was a good amateur rider but was never able to make the transition to pro-racer due to a succession of injuries, but continued to work hard in the hope that one day either of his two sons might. He did, however, win the world amateur race, the Coupe de L’Avenir in Belgium as a Team France member.

Patrick, the eldest son was born four years earlier than Yves and was the first to take to riding a dirt bike but as for Yves, his first motocross bike didn’t arrive until Christmas Day, a Yamaha 80cc, aged ten.

The early days were all about riding for fun, riding in the mountains close to his home, but the day eventually came when he would take to the race track for the first time, aged eleven, something Demaria fondly remembers.
