Having spent 2019 WMX season with Yamaha, prior to previous 4 WMX seasons with KTM, Amandine has not shied away from making changes needed to advance her career racing both WMX and Women’s French Championship which she won last year.

Winning 2019 WMX Opening Round at Valkenswaard, Amandine’s home track, it will be of no surprise if the Belgium born #274 hits her stride early in the 6 Round Series having put in plenty of training with her new Team during off-season months.

#274: ‘I switched to Kawasaki not because Yamaha isn’t a good bike just because I had a better opportunity with Kawasaki Europe for the GP and with Kawasaki France for the Women’s French Championship’.

‘Bud Racing was interested to work with me for the next 2 seasons and I secured a deal with Kawasaki and Bud Racing’.

‘I really like my Kawasaki, suspension is good and everything is going well. Before January I spent most of my time in Belgium for my physical training and after the New Year I spent more time in France to train with the team- riding at the good track of St-Jean-D’angely’.

With much needed support from Brand and confirmed place on Bud Racing Team, Amandine has perfect set-up to concentrate on performance. Notwithstanding the difference from being supported by Team crew as opposed to privateer set-up at WMX GP’s, Amandine can also count on professional knowledge and expertise from the Team’s 4 rider line-up through-out the FIM World MX Championship season.

Heading into MXGP/WMX Round 1 at Matterley Basin in 3 weeks time, Amandine looks forward to what will be exciting and full schedule competing in 6 Round WMX Series and Women’s French Championship.

Amandine: ‘My physical condition and my riding is good- even better than last year. My goal is to finish on the podium but first give my best at every GP’.
