04.06.2007 Jan de Groot passed away
It is with great sadness that Kawasaki must announce that on the morning of the 4th June 2007 Kawasaki Racing Team Manager and Team Green bastion Jan de Groot passed away after succumbing to a serious illness which had hospitalized him for more than a week.
De Groot devoted his life’s pursuit to motocross. His dedication, friendship, humility and enthusiasm will be sorely missed in the World Championship paddock; his absence felt by the larger off-road motorcycling community and all motocross followers.
