Van den Bosch tests with TM

VDB won a world title on a TM in 2009

Thierry van den Bosch has been recovering from an injury the last couple of months. But now VDB has been spotted in action at the Latina track in Italy. But surprisingly was riding a TM Factory bike.

This is surprising because he was expected to return with the KTM Motoracing team. VDB wants to resume training in June and maybe race later this year if all goes well.

In which colors VDB will return remains to be seen but it looks like he is going back to blue.
