Nancy van de Ven and Yamaha have extended their contract. Nancy and Yamaha have had a great season together. Nancy was aiming for a podium position this year and was hoping to finish inside of the top five in the championship. During the year things started to go better and better and finally she finished on the podium twice and managed to win the Grand Prix in the Czech Republic. In the championship she finished in a strong third position.
In 2016 she will have the support from Yamaha again and she will do everything she can to improve her results. ‘’Everything went really well with Yamaha this year. Because of the better opportunities which I got from Yamaha, I have made a lot of progress and managed to win my first ever Grand Prix. I will do my best next year to improve on my results. When I win the championship this would be great but I am satisfied with another position as well as long as I know that I have given everything I got. With the support of Yamaha I know that I have the material to do well and the rest is up to myself’’.
Nancy will ride the complete Women World Championship in 2016. This championship will be held in six different countries and starts on the 26th and 27th of February in Qatar.
