Amateur Grass Track racing started at the age of 6. Till I was 10 years old I rode a LEM 50, KX60/65 and a CR 85.
My name is Maikel Dijkstra, I am 29 years old and have been racing motorcycles since I was 6.
I started with grass track racing, in the 450cc class where they race dirt bikes with enduro tires on oval tracks.
In 2016 I fully switched to Flat Track and have competed all across Europe. This has given me a huge amount of experience and knowledge about how to be fast on an oval, and the basis that is used.
This gives me to opportunity to teach riders these basics and how to progress in the sport.
I'm constantly working on improving my riding skills and how to transfer that knowledge.
My goal is to create a new generation of racers that can take Flat Track to the next level.
In 2023, the Royal Enfield Slide School Benelux and the Flat Track Academy will start at various locations.
