In a press conference held on Sunday, May 30, at Glen Helen Raceway, Giuseppe Luongo, President of Youthstream, stated: "I think today we put the first stone of a great castle. USA is probably the biggest country in the world for Motocross, the industry is here, you have fantastic organizers and very fast racers. There has always been a rivalry with America but for the good of Motocross best is to be altogether for the good of Motocross itself. This will be good for the whole world involved in Motocross. The circuit of Glen Helen is fantastic, its classic layout is matched by top class infrastructures which can support a big event such as a Grand Prix. Today we did not only make the GP of USA: we also built the future of Motocross. Thanks to Glen Helen Raceway, its President Bud Feldkamp and the whole staff working here, they did a great job."
