About Bo

Bo becomes infected with the racing virus at the age of five. Her first steps in her career are made on pocketbikes in national and international championships. The foundation for his further racing career is found in the Molenaar NSF100 Championship. In her first two seasons she is second and in 2011 she wins the Championship. In the European NSF100 Challenge Bo takes second in 2010 and third in 2011. At the World Championship NSF100 in 2010 Bo sets a new track record, while finishing the race in tenth. In 2011 a new Cup is set up: the GP3 Junior Cup, raced on Moriwaki 250cc machines. Bo takes the title in the first year and she defends it successfully in 2012. In 2012 Bo races in the Yamaha R125 Cup as well, and  she is crowned Champion in this class at the end of the season. Competing in the IDM and ONK (Open Dutch Championship) Bo manages to take several podiums; a win at the Race of Champions at Assen, a win in Moto3 of the British SuperBikes at Assen and a second spot in the race at Zolder (Belgium). Bo gets two wildcards for the Pata European Junior Cup, and she wins both races. At Assen and at the Nürburgring in Germany. Bo is awarded the Ben Majoor Trophy by the KNMV. A prize to encourage young racing talent. Bo is invited for the selection for the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies cup in 2011 and in 2012 but doesn’t make the cut. At the end of 2013 she does, so she will be racing in the Cup in 2014. She ends the season in ninth, taking the victory at the second race at Assen and taking third at the second race at Silverstone. In 2014 Bo also competes in the Spanish Open with the Dutch racing Team, she finishes the season in fifteenth. The organizers of the Red Bull Rookies Cup are very pleased with Bo’s results in her first season and Bo is invited to take part in the cup in 2015 as well. She will be racing in the Spanish Open again in 2015 with Dutch Racing Team. In the 2015 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Bo takes the Championship with eight wins, a second and a third in 13 races ! She ends the Spanish Open in seventh with a third at Le Mans, a fourth at Portimao and a fourth at Jerez. After winning the Red Bull Rookies Cup Bo signs a one- year deal with the Red Bull KTM Ajo Team for 2016, with an option for a second season, to race in the Moto3 World Championship. She will be riding the official KTM machine in 2016. Bo is still in school and hopes to graduate in 2016.


Bo has a good start to the season taking his first championship points at the opening round at Qatar: 14th. In the following 5 GP’s there are no points with 22nd at Argentina, 22nd at the GP of the Americas, 21st at Jerez, 16th at LeMans and 18th at Mugello. At the Catalunyan GP there’s an 11th spot and in his home GP at Assen he takes 9th. His best result so far. At the Sachsenring he takes 12th after leading the race shortly under very wet conditions. At The Austrian GP he takes 7th and In the Chech GP he takes another 7th. In the British GP at Silverstone he’s fighting for the win, leading the race for several laps. His first podium in the Moto3 class with a 3rd. At the Misano round he has his only DNF after crashing out in the first lap, trying to make up some spots after a gridpenalty. In the Aragon GP there’s a 15th spot. At Motegi there are no points with an 18th. At Philip Island he takes 10th. And then at at the Sepang round he takes his second podium with a 3rd after a crazy race with a lot of crashes. In the last GP of the year at Valencia he takes 13th after again a gridpenalty; the 4th time this season: in Qatar (set back from 8th to 11th), in Argentina ( from 22nd to 26th), in Silverstone ( from 3rd to 8th) and in Valencia (from 8th to 20th). All these penalties were for riding to slow in practice in 3 following sectors. Such a shame, when you qualified well. But those are “learning moments” in a Rookie season, don’t do it next year ! Still, looking at things, a good “Rookie” season for Bo, ending the championship in 14th with 78 points. And what stands out is that Bo only crashed 4 times this season; once in a race, 3 times in practice. Bo will be riding in the Red Bull KTM Ajo Team next year aswell, his teammate next year will be Nicolo Antonelli. Brad Binder his teammate this year, and taking the Worldchampionship, will be racing for the Ajo Team in Moto2 next year.
