GasGas Motorcycles will start an new chapter in their offroad motorsport history this weekend as they step into the FIM Motocross World Championship for the first time.
In what is a key moment for the brand as it expands to compete in top-level motocross alongside its trial, rally and planned enduro activities, the opening round of the MXGP and MX2 series will see GasGas represented by Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing and DIGA Procross GasGas Factory Juniors in the MXGP and MX2 classes respectively.
‰ÛÏThis is a very proud and important moment for all involved with GasGas Motorcycles ‰ÛÒ the start of an exciting new chapter and the beginning of the brand‰Ûªs journey into top-level motocross racing," Robert Jonas, VP Motorsports Offroad, said.
"GasGas has a rich heritage in offroad motorcycling, it‰Ûªs a brand that is about putting the fun back into riding, and together with Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing and DIGA Procross GasGas Factory Juniors we have two established and passionate teams that perfectly fit what GasGas is about.
"Like always, the first GP of every new season is a special moment, but we can say that for GASGAS this is also an historic moment. We know that all of our riders have prepared themselves with full commitment and we‰Ûªre looking forward to seeing how they perform this year. Matterley Basin, the British GP, is a milestone for GASGAS Motorcycles, a key moment as we start our push to establish the brand on a global scale.‰Û
