Our goal is indeed to see fight the best Belgian riders for the national title in two high-quality matches at beautiful circuits in Belgium,”
“Because of the number of rounds limited to two, we rely on the presence of all Belgian riders. Moreover, we hope to attract the best international riders. A field with Jeremy Van Horebeek, Clement Desalle, Kevin Strijbos, Ken De Dycker, Damon Graulus, Brent Vandoninck … complemented by valuable riders like Steve Ramon, Jens Getteman Jeffrey Dewulf, Kristof Salaets, Yentel Martens, Dennis Verbruggen, Jurgen Wybo, Steve Seronval Kevin Strong, Jeremy DELINCE, Nick Triest, Andy Truyts Sven Breugelmans, Thomas Vilvorder David Segers, … the interest in motocross in Belgium could provide a new impetus. ”
