KTM Diga Junior Racing team signs Emil Jönrup
After the longterm signing of Emil Weckman the KTM Diga Junior Racing team continues to build its rostrum for 2019 and beyond. The Belgian team has secured the services of Sweden’s Emil Jönrup (15) to race the EMX125 series.
The talented youngster from Varberg had a standout year in 2016 when he bagged the Dutch, Swedish and North-Western European 85cc titles.
Emil Jönrup: “I’m really happy to have signed with KTM Diga Junior Racing. I’ve already spend a little bit of time to train together with them a few weeks ago. Which has been the perfect way to get to know each other! I’m now looking forward to finish the season strong and work hard towards our goals for 2019. I want to win the Dutch Masters of Motocross 125cc title and get a top-5 overall in EMX125.”
Dirk Saelen, team manager: “I’m pleased to have signed Emil not only because we think he has a good potential but also because he has the right attitude to learn and improve. We think that with the right support Jönrup can turn a few heads in the EMX125 next year. Obviously we are also delighted to have a plan in place for more years. Next year will be an important one in Emil’s development but we’re confident that he has a bright future in EMX250 as well.”
