Van Horebeek’s rise has been nothing short of spectacular. Jeremy went from strength to strength in his first full season in the MX2 World Championship. He scored his first top-ten finish in Bulgaria and went on to claim top five scores in Belgium and Northern-Ireland. Van Horebeek is the latest up-and-comer to race for the highly acclaimed Champ-KTM Team ran by Kees Van der Ven. Van Der Ven is regarded as one of the true experts in the MX2 class having guided Grant Langston, Steve Ramon and Ben Townley to world titles.
The likeable kid from Lot is obviously very pleased with his selection for the Belgian Team. Van Horebeek: “I could hardly believe it myself you know when Joël (Smets, team Belgium MXoN manager) said he wanted me on the team! This season has just been great and I made a lot of progress, just as I wanted to. It’s been a combination of things. I worked really hard this winter with my coach Jaimy. I have a great bike and good people around me at the Champ-KTM Team. To be selected for the MX of Nations and to represent your country is a real honor. It’s the icing on the cake! I have been practicing in the States before and I really like American motocross so that makes it even more interesting. I believe the Budds Creek track should suit me, so I will absolutely give it 200% there!” Van Horebeek can add even more sparkle to his season when he wraps up the Belgian MX2 title at Orp-le-Grand this weekend.
