MXGP 14 Flanders

Last weekend we had Jerre’s home GP and 14th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Lommel, Belgium. One of the toughest Gp on the calendar, and it was one of the hardest for our Beta factory rider. Jeremy would like to shine in front of his Belgian fans, but it turned out complete different. After the Czech GP Jeremy was diagnosed with covid and had a very high fever for several days. Luckely, on friday Jeremy tested negative for covid and decided to participate in his home GP but only to race on sunday because his physical condition was severely compromised by the after-effects of the virus.

On saturday he rode 3 laps in time practice for setting up the factory Beta and not race the qualifying heat to save all his energy with the eye on the races sunday.

Starting the first race from the last gate and still very debilitated, our strong Belgian tooked a good start but after a few corners he made a crash and needed to restart in last position. Despite this he came back to a 21th position but unfortunaly 4 laps before finish he decide to come in pit to save some energy, because the gap with 20th place was too big and he couldn’t get that 1 point anymore.

In the second race he took a decent start, showing as always his gritt, riding the first laps with a top ten pace what brought him to a 16th position. But a few laps later he was forced to retire and did not finish. The Beta foctory rider still standing on a 10th position in the world championship.

Jeremy Van Horebeek will dedicate the next few days to his physical recovery, before resuming training ahead of the race in Sweden two weeks from now.

Jeremy is also selected by team manager Johan Boonen for the MXON in RedBud (USA) on September 25th ad will ride the Open class. Together with Jago Geerts (MXGP Class) and Liam Everts (MX2 class) they will defend the national colours. As we all know it will be his last race.

Jeremy van Horebeek: “Here it is today is a beautiful day, it took me a lot of effort to write this but at the end of this season I will retire from the sport that I love so much. I’ve thought about it very well and it is the right time to say goodbye to 17 years of world championship motocross! As a child it was a dream to achieve this and even though I have not broken all the records ,I think I can be super proud of what I have accomplished. Becoming world champion was always the big dream and unfortunately I didn’t succeed but with a 3rd place in the mx2 class and a vice world title in the MXGP class all those beautiful podiums every time I was allowed to represent my country at the motocross of nations all the beautiful fights on the track with the best rider in the world, to ride for all those great factory teams and to work with so many great people is one of the best things that happened to me and where I look back with my head held high and never forget! Racing is the only thing I know , day in and day out my life was all about racing but after this season it’s time for a new chapter in my life together with my wife and two wonderful sons! I am so grateful to everyone who has helped me achieve this ! in the first place my parents who have sacrificed everything from day one ,the team’s , the people I have worked with and most of all you my fans ! I thank you so much for all the love and support I have received the past 17 years ! Also a special thanks to @sdm_corse_official and @betamotor1905 for the last two years ! #team89#enjoy
