    Weird... tragic...? He was one in an awesomely long line motocross talent from Belgium... He was one of the dominant Euro riders of the 80's (was fortunate to see him ride live on a couple of occassions - at the MXd'N and a 500cc GP at Namur).

    Missing presumed drowned in a boating incident... very sad if it is true - as Richo wrote.

    Is there any other source than Wicki...? :ear

    Search for Eric Geboers still in progress. VIDEO - Search for Eric Geboers

    In the Miramar (lake) near Mol, Belgium, authorities were (yesterday) still looking for former motorcross (legend) Eric Geboers (55). He got into the water on Sunday night from his boat - reputedly to rescue his dog.

    I believe so... Stefan won three World Championship classes also... MX1, MX2 and MX3 (the now defunkt Open to 650cc 4 stroke) Championships.

    George Jobe gave it a shot... 250cc and 500cc titles and (I think) 2nd in 125cc

    All three Belgians... the most dominant nation in World Championship motocross of all time...
