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.
Over the past two seasons, in 2020 and 2021, Geerts has led no fewer than 204 laps, won 19 races and celebrated 20 podium finishes, of which 10 were Grand Prix wins to claim silver medals in both years.
After a strong start to his MX2 career where he has already claimed three championship medals, Geerts will enter his fifth season with the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory team and the YZ250FM in 2022 where the goal remains clear and concise: win the MX2 World Championship. .
