Benoit Paturel and the De Baets MX team have reached an agreement to continue their collaboration next year.
In its first year as a team in the MXGP class, the team is going through a positive season. Paturel is eleventh in the standings of the world championship and has managed to complete ten top ten places this year. With the knowledge the team now has, they want to continue building this winter to hunt for the top ten places again next year.
In addition to Paturel, the team will work with two youth talents next year.
Comment Danny de Baets (team owner): “The idea this year was to bring Paturel back to the level where he belongs. We have succeeded well in this and we can look back on a positive season. With the knowledge we have now, we will go into the winter and continue to work hard to be able to take another step next year. In addition to Paturel, we will also work with two youth talents, which is a very nice challenge for us to bring these riders to a higher level.”
