After Liam Everts his EMX125 win in Matterley Basin and his top ten result in the EMX250 race of Valkenswaard, we saw the world come to a stop. This all due to the COVID-19 pandemic, what plunged us in times of uncertainty. Hard decisions were made, countries went in lock down, races got postponed … This to protect the most important aspect of life, our health. So from here we also hope that you are all safe, healthy and in good spirits.
Because there is no real end date and nobody really knows when or if we will be racing in 2020. We thought it wasn’t a bad idea to catch up with you followers.
Liam Everts: “In this weird and uncertainty times, I try to keep fit and healthy. This contains doing physical training at home, go running or do some cycling and keeping myself busy with riding the Trail-bike and the KTM Freeride. Besides that I’ve the same problems then most people. Certain things are cancelled or are standing on-hold. So I needed to search for a new daily rhythm.
Not that this caused me a lot of problems, but it feels a bit obnoxious. After the first two grand prix races, I fell into a nice flow, knowing what to do every day. Going to the track on Friday, prepare yourself for a good weekend it are all things I miss.”
With countries like Germany and Belgium already banning mass events till the end of august. It is unclear when and where Liam will return back into action.
Liam Everts: “On the other hand, I try to enjoy the time off. Because one season flows into the other season and now we’ve plenty of time on our hands. Time I put into one of my hobbies designing, something I really like doing. People can see some of the results in our brand new web-shop, because all prints on the shirts are made by me.”
