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.
The now 22-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.
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 Geerts 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 three seasons, in 2020, 2021 and 2022, Geerts has fought for the title. During that time, the ’93’ has celebrated 32 race wins and 43 podium finishes on his way to three championship silver medals.
Going into his sixth season with Yamaha and the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory team, Geerts’ goal remains clear and concise: he wants to win the MX2 World Championship.
