Kevin Strijbos will return to the MXGP series in 2021 after signing a deal with the Gebben Racing Yamaha squad.

He will join Calvin Vlaanderen and Brent van Doninck in the team.

“I have signed the contract with Gebben Van Venrooy Yamaha for 2021. I am happy that they did everything in their power to try and make it work. Also, from my side, we both wanted to make it work and we did it the best way we could. I’m really happy that we could find an agreement so I can go on for another year,” said Strijbos.


“I am looking forward to getting back on the Yamaha, I think it’s a great bike already from stock. Looking at last year I think the Gebben van Venrooy bikes are really good so I can’t wait to throw my leg over the bike and see how it goes.

“I want to thank Gebben Van Venrooy Racing for this opportunity, my sponsors like HENS because they’ve been there for me the whole time since I’ve been racing GPs.

“He’s a friend, a private sponsor for me and always been a big help so a big thanks for making it work. I am happy with how everything is looking for the season ahead.”
