Belgian signs to race world championship season

Brent Van doninck will race MXGP next year for Gebben Van Venrooy Racing Yamaha.

The 24-year-old Belgian raced for the ASA United Husqvarna team this season in the UK before picking up an MXGP fill-in ride with the Dutch team. His team-mate next season will be Calvin Vlaanderen.

‘”Of course I am very enthusiastic about this agreement,” said Van doninck. “Gebben van Venrooy has given me the opportunity in the last three Grand Prix races in Italy and we were all very satisfied with my results.

“I already know that the bike is doing very well and I think it will only get better when we test it. I can’t wait to start working with the team.”
