Mattia Guadagnini will jump onto the 450 MXGP class for the remainder of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship.

After a few challenging first races in MX2 Guadagnini will move up at the upcoming stops of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship. ‘101’ has already tested his new steed and there is plenty of excitement in the air heading to the Grand Prix of Sardegna.

Competing at just twenty years of age, Guadagnini will be able to absorb a lot of knowledge on the 450 and put that to good use in the future. It is such an exciting time for him to learn and grow in the very competitive MXGP division.

“I had great expectations for this season,” Guadagnini said. “I prepared very well with the team, but things in the races have gone wrong too many times. I have made mistakes and also had some bad luck! We are not yet halfway through the season, but realistically it is very difficult to achieve the goals that I had set for myself. I thought that it would be more logical to look forward and prepare for next season, especially as I have so many rounds to adapt to the 450. I talked about it with De Carli and the team, and perhaps this change will be positive for everyone? I thank the team and management for this opportunity.”

Team manager, Claudio De Carli, added, “Between mistakes and unlucky episodes, Mattia is going through a difficult period. We all know his talent – he can return to doing very well and is still in the top ten in MX2. Mattia always works with great commitment and is a mature, determined, professional and very fast rider. We talked about it, for his interest, and among the various possibilities he himself decided to move to the MXGP category. This transition was planned for next season, but we are all convinced that it is a good solution to make the move immediately. In MXGP he will not have to worry about the results. There are thirteen rounds to race, in which he can become familiar with the 450 and thus prepare himself as best as possible for 2023.”

Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing will continue to be represented by Simon Langenfelder in the MX2 division. Langenfelder sits third in the championship standings and has one Grand Prix win to his name so far.
