Many will remember him for his past in the 500, in the years between 1997 and 2005. We are talking about the Dutchman Jurgen Van Den Goorbergh, a good privateer on the Honda and then on the Muz and also on the Proton of Kenny Roberts sr.

Jurgen, two fifths and a sixth place - but a memorable one: from 19th to 6th overall in China as Makoto Tamada's replacement - at the age of 52 got on the BeOn 450 GP at Vallelunga for a cognitive ride. We don't have the times, but he certainly didn't go slow!
