With 2020 WMX Opening Round only week and half away, Lynn embraces knowledge that racing her Yamaha 250F 2nd year in a row will give added comfort on managaing race strategies against full-line up competitive WMX riders.

Having placed no less than 7th at every WMX Round in 2019, and jumped Overall standings from 11th Overall in 2018 to 7th in ‘019, it is sure certainty that Lynn has refined her form on the bike for new season ahead.

#172: ‘The preparations have so far been good. I feel really comfortable on the bike. This winter I did more bike training but also more physical training’.

‘The most important thing I learnt from last year was that I had to be stronger physically, and I have put a lot of hard work in that this winter’.

Race speed is not a problem for the young Dutch teenager, nor is racing amongst Women riders with tally of WMX medals to their name. In fact, Lynn enjoys the challenge of competing against Women riders who have plenty of fierce competiveness to bring to the track, ramping up all riders performance to the max.

With goals in sight, and all important family support, Lynn will shine against the unknown factors of racing new track at Matterley Basin on March 1st, as well as rising to the challenge of meeting her own expectations of placing in top 5.

#172: ‘The goal for this season is to improve myself to hopefully go inside the top five. Last year was my first year on the 250f, and this will be the second year on the bike, and I feel more comfortable and stronger on the bike. I’m looking forward to start the season’.
