Two time 50CC World Champion Jan de Vries died last week at the age of 77.
He won the 50CC World Title for the Kreidler-Van Veen team in 1971 and 1973 in his time he won 14 races and stood on the podium 23 times.
He unfortunately never won the race on the TT circuit in Assen. After he quit racing he became a mechanic for his rival Angel Nieto and helped him win the world title in 1975.
Every time i saw him at exhibitions or on TV he always seemed like a really nice guy. May he rest in peace.
Here's some old timey footage of him winning a race in 1971
