Team manager Justin Amian: “It was a very spontaneous inquiry and also an opportunity for us to allow a young rider to compete at some of the remaining rounds of the MX2 GPs, which we could not miss. Lars van Berkel is an excellent sand rider and we hope we will be able to make some good results with him in the outstanding races, especially in Lommel and Assen.”
