‰ÛÏWe may be new to the GasGas brand this year but we are not new to the Supercross racing scene," Keefe said. "It‰Ûªs been a lot of work for everyone involved in order to get this team ready to go racing and I know that we have a strong team of riders and crew behind us to make it happen. It‰Ûªs been a dream come true for Troy to have a 450 racing effort and he is beyond stoked to debut in the 450SX class with Justin Barcia next weekend.‰Û
