We must not forget as well his 2019 IRRC plans, which sees him taking part again in the Supersport championship as he aims to get back to the form, that placed him in strong contention for series honours in 2017.

Piloting next year brand new YZF R6 Yamaha machinery, there’s no doubt that Yves Bian has everything in place to enjoy an excellent season from both an IRRC (International Road Racing Championship) and International roads perspective.
