Nine years in the making the LV Classic has been an event to raise money for the local up and coming generation of children in La Ventana, Baja California Mexico. This year the LV Classic met their goal by raising more than 25 thousand US dollars to go toward educating these young individuals who would not be able to receive a proper education otherwise.
As you most likely know, F-One has been investing quite heavily with its Next Generation program, helping nurture talented young riders to train and understand what it takes to be a champ. Last year they went to Tarifa in Spain for a full week of intense training with pro coaching. Some former member are now a part of the Pro Team (Nicolas Delmas). Here is the current roster. Every year, F-One is on the lookout for the Next Generation phenom. In 2017, the Next Generation Team is going to be stronger than ever !!
