Frenchman Adrien Van Beveren is the latest reinforcement to the Monster Energy Honda Team, joining riders Ricky Brabec, José Ignacio Cornejo, and Pablo Quintanilla.

With the Yamaha Rally Team closing down recently there was much speculation on where the former Factory Yamaha team rider would end up after losing his ride.

Ruben Faria, the team’s General Manager, did not hide his enthusiasm with the arrival of the Frenchman.

“We are very pleased with this announcement and we have already completed together the first tests with the Honda 450 CRF RALLY. There is great harmony in the team and I am sure Adrien will help us to achieve our competitive goals”, Faria said.

Born on February 4, 1991 in Hazebrouck, France, Adrien Van Beveren had a successful motocross career before joining the raid rally racing. A specialist in sand, he won the mythical Touquet Enduro three times in a row – at that time he became known as the “Little Prince”.

In the Dakar, he disputed the leadership in several editions, finishing fourth in 2017 and 2022. In this new adventure with Honda, Adrien does not hide his ambition.

“I am really happy and excited with this opportunity! I feel proud to become a Honda Racing rider, since HRC is the worldwide competition factory reference. I am sure it will be an incredible experience. To seat a red bike brings me good memories since I had a Honda when I was 8 years old! In addition, it’s great to have Monster Energy on board – I’ve been riding with them for more than 10 years,” Van Beveren said.

With 1.87 meters tall and weighing 86 kg, Adrien has a huge passion for motorsports. So when he’s not riding the Honda 450 CRF RALLY, he likes to ride a wave runner, rally car, track bike or buggy. To help his physical preparation he is also a mountain bike fan.
