Video: Velospitty (Speed Talk) Episode 16 – Lotte van Drunen
Tinus Nel recently caught up with female sensation, Lotte van Drunen.
Lotte had the world’s collective jaws drop to the floor when she raced to third place in the 2019 FIM 65cc junior world championships against the fastest boys in the world.
Lotte switched over to the bigger 85cc bike in 2020, and even though the season was severely curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic, she had ample opportunity to prove her mettle at top level.
The Open Dutch Championships is renowned as a challenging and hotly contested series. Lotte collected a number of race wins on her way to second in the final championship standings. She also participated in one round of the ADAC MX Masters Junior Cup and finished fourth. Clearly a force to be reckoned with, then.
