Northern Talent Cup Trophy
The all-new Northern Talent Cup begins in 2020, with the goal of giving riders from northern and central European countries a new opportunity to further their careers and follow their dream of being a motorcycle racer. It’s designed to provide the perfect stepping stone between lower level national championships and the FIM CEV Repsol and/or Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
The Northern Talent Cup is one-make series of teams and riders, using the incredibly successful European Talent Cup as a blueprint. The limit on entries for the first year is 24 riders aged between 12 and 17, all riding the new KTM 250 Standard. Riders of all nationalities can apply, but the Cup is designed for riders from northern and central Europe – with the calendar also intended to cut down on travel costs for those who would otherwise have to travel across the continent to compete at a similar level. The NTC visits tracks across Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Czech Republic.
At least one of the top riders in the NTC will compete in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup the following year and at least two of them will take part in the Rookies Cup selection event on the Road to MotoGP™.
