The Gebben Van Venrooy Kawasaki Racing Team are delighted to announce the signing of Alessandro Lupino for the 2018 season. The team expands on their 2017 rider line up as the Italian will join up with French rider, Maxime Desprey under the awning next year meaning the team will run two riders in the MXGP World Championship.
Lupino has spent the last three years with the Assomotor Honda outfit but will be back on a Kawasaki next year in the MXGP World Championship. The Italian has had good times on a Kawasaki before in the MX2 World Championship as he was with the factory team and got himself some podium finishes.
This year Lupino had a promising season and showed some good speed against the best riders in the world. He ended up sixteenth in the series with some top ten results in what was an encouraging season. With a strong winter behind him he can put in even better results on the Gebben Van Venrooy Kawasaki in 2018.
