Reaction to this historic announcement was mixed across the globe.

Ken Roczen, spotted in Florida at the time, was quoted after the announcement: Wow, das ist erstaunlich, ich kann es nicht glauben! Wie Ryan Dungey sagen würde: Ich bin super gepumpt!

Es ist an der Zeit. In der Vergangenheit gab es viele Rennen und viele Serien. In den vergangenen Jahren gab es die 3 Hauptreihen, die separat laufen, was eine Schande ist. Jetzt, mit einer einheitlichen Serie, kann die Welt den besten Fahrer in der Welt kennen lernen.

Eine Sache, die ich mir nicht sicher bin - 7 Rennen im April - wie wird das passieren?

Oh ja. Ich habe vergessen. Es gibt diese Veranstaltung in den USA. Es heißt Aprilscherz. Hoffe es gefällt euch!

Former World Motocross Champion, AMA Supercross Champion, and AMA Motocross Champion Jean-Michel Bayle from France had this to say as he boarded his flight at Tokyo's Haneda airport: J'adore April Fools Day! J'adore les croissants! Ken Roczen a dit que c'était April Fools, n'est-ce pas?

From the Italian Motorcycling Federation, president Giacomo Pastalini Dolomiti said “Holy Shit! Se vuoi che ci sia una vera e propria lotta tra Feld Motorsports, MX Sports e Youthstream partire dalla prossima stagione! Mi aspetto Feld per cercare di rompere con l'AMA e FIM, e poi tutti si scatenerà l'inferno tra Europa e in America a base a base di promoters. It su! Non dimenticate - Pesce d'Aprile! BTW, che nome stupido - Monster Energy Lucas Oil Red Bull Motocross mondiale Supercross Series.

Multi time AMA Supercross and Motocross Champion Bob Hannah said “Make sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! And about time they did this! Let’s see who really is the best in the world! Also, I hope to unseat FIM president Vito Ippolito Villopoto in 2018. High Key all the way! I want to run the FIM. I’m running on a platform of ‘More motorcycles for all’. My campaign slogan is Make Motorcycling Great Again! I’ll be posting on Insta and Snap from the Awards Banquet in Paris next year for sure!!!"

2006 FIM World MX2 Motocross Champion Christophe Pourcel said "Siri, quel est le meilleur dîner que je peux commander chez McDonald's? Que dois-je regarder sur NetFlix ce soir?"

The Lufthansa National Motorcycling Federation (LNMF) president Großer Mann Großer Kopf said “Wann werden die Leute lernen? Lufthansa ist kein Land in Deutschland! Lufthansa ist eine Fluggesellschaft verdammt!”
