2017… A year of ups and downs, progression and setbacks. I honestly don’t know how I feel about my season. I’m happy about certain things I’ve proven this year although I know there’s still a lot of room for improvement.
This season I’ve been part of the Falcon Motorsports Team. The cooperation went very smooth. I raced the whole ADAC championship, a part of the German and Dutch Championship and some local Belgian races on my KTM 350cc. I know a lot of people wondered why I chose to race on a 350cc and didn’t quite understand that choice. But for me that was the best and ‘safest’ option. I namely finished my last year of high school, finally after 6 long years! Yes, this means I can now completely focus myself on my riding, super pumped about that.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to start training the way I wanted, due to a stupid mistake I made during the last round of the ADAC at Holzgerlingen. I dislocated my shoulder but luckily don’t need surgery. It’s been 2 weeks since my crash and I’m feeling better every day. Next week I start my rehabilitation. I can’t wait to be back on the bike.
I want to thank all the people that stood by me during this season. My team, my personal sponsors, my fans and my family.
