Troy Lee Designs switches to GasGas with a new rider lineup for 2021

Posted:

The Troy Lee Designs Supercross and Motocross Team has changed colors with a new brand and rider lineup for the AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross Championships for the 2021 season and beyond.

Highlighting the team‰Ûªs 450 effort is Justin Barcia, a seasoned front-runner who is looking to re-establish himself as a title contender in the premier class aboard the GasGas MC 450F. In the 250 division, longtime Troy Lee Designs athlete and rookie standout Troy Lee Designs will race aboard the MC 250F alongside teammate Troy Lee Designs, who is eager to pick up where he left off last season as a 250 class front-runner.


An icon of the sport, Barcia leads GasGas Motorcycles as the brand heads into our it's first year of American racing. After claiming back-to-back 250SX titles in 2011-2012, Barcia celebrate his ninth season of 450cc racing in 2021. Claiming victory in his second ever 450SX race, he‰Ûªs since gone on to enjoy multiple victories and podium finishes both indoors and out. With a new team and bike for 2021, Barcia‰Ûªs busy preparing himself for what he believes can be his best season yet.

Taking to the start line in the 250 division, Pierce Brown and Michael Mosiman are young racers that each recorded strong 250SX results in 2020. Looking to unlock their full potential, they‰Ûªll be aiming for the podium when the gate drops for round one.

On the switch from KTM to GasGas Roger De Coster ‰ÛÒ Director of Motorsports in North America said: ‰ÛÏAppointing Troy Lee Designs as the official GasGas Factory Racing team for supercross and motocross not only further strengthens our longstanding partnership with Troy and his team, it also starts an important new chapter for TLD in the 450 class and for GASGAS in America, which is a hugely important step for GASGAS Motorcycles. As an energetic, new brand we‰Ûªre excited to establish the MC 450F and MC 250F when we get back to racing and the start of the 2021 supercross series. We look forward to providing the technical support and guidance needed to allow Justin, Pierce and Michael to perform at their very best in 2021 and wish everyone at Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing all the best for the new season ahead.‰Û
