The 20-year-old from Balen, Belgium has already laid an impressive foundation for success. He was twice European Champion, once on an 85cc in 2014 and again on a 125ccc in 2016, and in that same year the then 15-year-old was crowned Junior Motocross World Champion in the 125cc class.
Hailing from one of the most prolific countries in motocross, Jago Geerts was a must-have signing for the Belgium-based Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MX2 Team. In 2018, the youngster turned pro and entered his first full season in MX2 with the team where he finished eighth and was awarded ‘Rookie of the Year’.
In his second term in MX2, the ‘193’ stood on the podium on seven occasions. He was also one of only three race winners in 2019 where he managed to secure the MX2 World Championship bronze medal at the eighteenth and final round.
In 2020, Geerts led 156 laps, won 14 races and celebrated 12 podium finishes, of which six were Grand Prix wins to claim MX2’s silver medal with 679-points.
After a strong start to his MX2 career where he has already claimed two championship medals, Geerts will enter his fourth season with a new number attached to his YZ250FM. Although his number has changed, from ‘193’ to ‘93’ – a number he used throughout his amateur career - his goal remains the same. He wants to be the 2021 MX2 World Champion.
