Van Erp showed great potential at the EMX125 round of Lommel. Hailing from Oss, The Netherlands, the 15-year-old Dutchman was sensational on the shifty sand circuit as he posted the fastest lap in his group to secure his very first Pole Position.
With dark skies overhead and drizzle on his goggle lens, the youngster got off to a decent start in the opening race and put in an incredible ride for seventh position.
In the final race, the ‘432’ powered his GYTR kitted YZ125 to the holeshot line and led the first five laps. After stretching out a five-second lead, he, unfortunately, made a small mistake and crashed but was impressively able to make a quick remount and kept his top-speed to the flag where he crossed the line in sixth.
After a brilliant end to the season where he narrowly missed the top-five by 1-point, Van Erp will continue with the MJC Yamaha Official EMX125 team through 2021.
