Own Quinten Bossche’s UIM 2017 World Champion-Winning GP1 SX-R 1500 (Gallery)


Quinten Bossche, a 23-year-old from Ostende, Belgium, has had a pretty good year. Not only did Bossche start the year as a rookie on the UIM-ABP tour only to become the Ski GP1 World Champion in just seven months, but he, according to the UIM’s website, “grabbed a first moto win and podium on his debut, taking his first pole and a second win in his next outing” while at the UIM World Championships in Dubai.

Bossche said, “It feels really good, for me and the whole team. We have been working hard all year, we have had out setbacks but in the end we made it. Before coming into this championship we didn’t think about doing so good, we would have been happy with fifth place and good finishes. Maybe we were hoping for some podiums but now we have won. It’s really incredible and to be honest I still don’t quite believe it. It hasn’t sunk in yet. I am very happy and I want to win it again next year because now I know I can. We will work hard and be ready for next season.”

Now, as he races towards next year, Bossche is selling his ’17 Kawasaki SX-R 1500 that he used to earn his GP1 championship. He also notes that the same setup earned 3rd place in the world championships’ Ski GP1 Womens’ class too. Of course, if the SX-R is too much to handle or not legal for whatever class you choose to compete in, Bossche is offering to modify it to fit your needs. All you need to do is message him privately on Facebook.
