THE JUMPING JACK YAMAHA


Yamaha XSR 900 - Bike build in memory of JACK MIDDELBURG by GILEX CLASSIC MOTORCYCLES in cooperation with YAMAHA and RTL GP magazine



Jack Middelburg  was a Dutch professional Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. Together with Wil Hartog and Boet van Dulmen, he was part of a contingent of Dutch riders who competed at the highest levels of Grand Prix racing in the late 1970s. World Championship, where he was noted for his impetuous driving, so much to deserve the nickname "Jumping Jack" (from the song of the Rolling Stones Jumpin 'Jack Flash).

In 1981 he pulled off an unexpected upset when he defeated the defending world champion, Kenny Roberts at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
