The Vendéspace displayed the sold-out sign the day before the start of the X-Trial World Championship, a contest that this year began with significant changes in the format of competition, triggered by the arrival of a new promoter, the company 2Play.

Just two days after the presentation as new riders for the GasGas Trial Factory Team of the Torrot Company in Bilbao, Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo had their first taste of the X-Trial world, sharing a group, the second of the three in which the nine competitors of this renewed indoor competition were distributed. A first qualifying phase that gave access to the six best riders to the second round and that both Busto and Fajardo, passed with a remarkable performance, closing this qualifying round in second and third positions, with 4 and 8 points respectively on their cards.

In the second round, Jaime Busto confirmed his super-quick adaptation to his new GasGas TrialGP 300. The young star from Bilbao achieved the best score in a complicated group formed together with him by his team-mate Jeroni Fajardo, and Adam Raga. A result that made sure of his ticket straight to the grand final. Unfortunately, a mistake in the next-to-last zone forced Fajardo out of the final. The rider from Girona closes this first round of the X-Trial World Championship with a fourth place.

Toni Bou and Jaime Busto confronted each other again in the six first zones of the evening. A circuit in which, a premature five from GasGas, cheated him from the final victory. A second place, however, was something of an early birthday present for the young rider from Górliz, who turns 20 on the 4th of Desember.

After advancing the start of the X-Trial World Championship in the event calendar by practically one month, the second round of the championship is to be held on January 13th at the Sud de France Arena in Montpelier, also in France.

Jaime Busto: "Reaching the final and getting up on to the second step of the podium is the best way to reward Torrot for the confidence placed in me by forming part of the GasGas Factory Trial Team. It has been a very good start to the World Championship. The zones did not have a too complicated level, so in the first round I was able to qualify in the second position and then, in the next, although my rivals were very good, I fine-tuned my riding and I managed to pass through to the final. Toni [Bou] was very strong as always and we made a small mistake at the beginning, in the second zone, which prevented us from fighting for the final victory. However, starting the Championship this way is incredible for us. The zones were not extremely difficult, which meant that in the classification a high price would be paid for any mistake. However, we have been riding at a great level and in the end we finished second, a very good start for us and all our team in the X-Trial World Championship. "

Jeroni Fajardo: "The truth is that I had very good feelings. In the first round, an initial mistake made it difficult for me to get into the race as it put a lot of pressure on me. I knew I couldn’t make any more mistakes, but in the end I got a third place, getting through to the next round. The second elimination phase was very hard. Jaime and I were in the same group, with Adam [Raga], and the truth is that the fact of leaving last gave me a slight advantage. In the next-to-last zone, I noticed that the crankcase touched an obstacle. The commentator said that, after that, we were in a tie with Adam [Raga]. So I took a risk to finish the area with a better time than him but it just didn't work out and so finally I finished fourth. It is always better to get a podium, but this time it was just not to happen for very little. Despite this, my feelings about the new GasGas TrialGP 300 have been very good. We were ahead and I am sure that good results will not be long in coming for our team and for Torrot. "

Torrot, owner of GasGas, has revealed this midday in Bilbao its renewed and ambitious commitment for the 2018 season with the stellar signings of riders Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo of GasGas Trial Factory Team. A structure once again led with the experience of Marc Colomer, who repeats at the front as team manager.

The four-time World Champion puts all his sporting knowledge back to the service of the GasGas Trial Factory Team. An official squad undergoing a profound transformation for the next season, in which it has committed to the talent of the young Jaime Busto and the experience of Jeroni Fajardo to take a big step forward in their aspirations in the fight for the X-Trial and TrialGP World Championships - formerly known as indoor and outdoor, respectively - and also in the Spanish Trial Championship, in the TR1 category.


Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo will debut with the Torrot company sports team on Sunday 3rd in El Vendée (France), on the exclusive, competitive TrialGP 300 bike. Busto, a talented young rider from Górliz, 20 years old, will debut for the first time wearing the GasGas colours. Fajardo, the experienced rider from Girona, 32, return after a decade to compete with the brand that accompanied him at the beginning of his sports career in the trial discipline.

After the presentation of Torrot in Bilbao, an acknowledgement by the brand to the home town of the young rider Jaime Busto in his incorporation to the team, the GasGas Trial Factory Team will travel directly to France, where this weekend the 2018 X-Trial World Championship is starting. Vendée is to host the first date of the indoor World Cup that, on this occasion, has brought forward its start by almost a month, to December 3rd.

MARC COLOMER: "The addition of Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo to the GasGas Trial Factory Team demonstrates the willingness of Torrot and GasGas to get back to the very top of the Trial World Championships, both indoor and outdoor. Jaime will turn 20 next week. He is a young rider with a very promising future. While Jeroni has great experience and has always been high up in the World Championship. Together they form a very complete team. The goal of GasGas is to come back to being World Champions as soon as possible. We know that at present it is a difficult challenge, since Toni Bou has been the great dominator of this speciality during the last seasons. We are aware of the difficulty that this entails, but that is also the motivation that pushes us to improve to fight for victory."

JAIME BUSTO: "I am very happy and motivated to face this season with the GasGas team thanks to the opportunity that Torrot has given me. This is a new challenge for me. I will have a new bike, which I had always wanted to ride, and to which I have adapted to very well. Also to a new team, with a very good atmosphere. I really want to start the World Championship; the feeling of the GasGas TrialGP bike is very good and the team is very happy with this new project. We will give everything to get as high as possible, first in the X-Trial World Championship and, in May, in the TrialGP World Championship."

JERONI FAJARDO: "I am very motivated with the start of this season. We are launching a new bike and a new team and my goal is to take a step forward in the X-Trial and TrialGP World Championships. This is a change that will allow me to improve a lot during the next two seasons. The GasGas TrialGP is a fantastic bike and we have a great team, so I hope to be able to fight for podium positions in the X-Trial and TrialGP World Championships. I want to thank Torrot for betting on me to be a GasGas Trial Factory Team rider."

Gas Gas is proud to announce the incorporation of Christophe Nambotin to its official enduro team. During the celebration of the EICMA in Milan, the French rider and the factory in Salt announced the agreement by which the three times world champion is to become a new rider in the Gas Gas Enduro Factory team for the next two seasons.

And so Christophe Nambotin returns as official rider for Gas Gas, the brand where the rider from Saint-Sébastien-de-Raids took the first steps of his career as a professional and that, thanks to the fond memories left by his time with the factory, has always occupied a very special place in the heart of both the rider and Gas Gas.

'Nambo' returns to what has always been his home, now 33 years old, to get back on the highly competitive EC 300, the renewed weapon from Gas Gas . Next season he will be using this to fight for the E3 and EnduroGP titles in the Enduro World Championship, and also try to add a new prize to his long list of successes in the French National Championship.

The team led by Gio Sala gets a new reinforcement to the renewed structure of the Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team for the 2017 season. Undoubtedly, one of the great international names of enduro, a speciality in which Nambotin treasures three crowns as World Champion - 2 in E3 and 1 in E1 - and the impressive figure of six wins in the ISDE for France -2 of these as the absolute Scratch winner - and seven Gallic championships. An incredible track record that makes Gas Gas' new signing a star within the Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team for next year in the premier category of the World Championship.

Christophe Nambotin: "I’m going back to my roots, I’m returning to Gas Gas, the brand I will compete for during the next two years in the EnduroGP World Championship and in the French E3 Championship on the new Gas Gas EC 300 two-stroke, a motorcycle that has already proved to be enormously competitive in its first year. I am very happy to have come home and embark on a new sports adventure with the team that saw how I took my first steps in the GPs and the World Championship. For my part, I will do everything possible to share all my experience with them and together we can fight for new titles. "

<![CDATA[The winner of the first edition of TrialE Cup]]> http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/779-.html http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/779-.html Thu, 09 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 779 http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/779-.html

The innovative motorbike design is the result of a synergistic partnership between Torrot and Gas Gas, taking shape as a fantastic electric trials bike. The new model looks firmly to the mass production. Such commercialisation is motivated by the great expectations generated after the bike’s victory in Lourdes, where it became the first victor of an electric trials race in world championships history.

A SYNERGISTIC PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN TORROT AND GAS GAS

The new TXTe EGD (Electric Gear Drive) has become the poster child of the joint efforts between Torrot and Gas Gas. The new model is an astonishing and competitive trial bike that perfectly combines the concepts of freedom and electric mobility evocative of Torrot, with the competitive spirit of Gas Gas.

The teamwork between both companies—working under the same corporate umbrella since the start of 2016—has borne the market’s most advanced electric trials bike. The bike inherits the resilient qualities of the Gas Gas TXT range—a benchmark in the speciality—with Torrot’s latest electric technology. The result is clear: a bike without equal in its segment.

THE MOST INNOVATIVE TRIALS BIKE

The Gas Gas TXTe EGD is a trials bike that, under the skin, hides an efficient electric motor cooled by water, and powered by the latest generation batteries. It’s an efficient engine, which is paired with a new six speed transmission and clutch that puts this Gas Gas TXTe EGD model in a class of its own.

Additionally, one of the Catalan company’s best-kept secrets is its controller. The controller is truly the brains of the operation, whose information allows for a level of parameter control previously incomprehensible with petrol combustion engines, despite the recent introduction of new electronic-injection motors. The result is a bike that’s agile, light and easy to drive, making the Gas Gas TXTe EGD a top competitor in the trials segment. Little was left to doubt, as seen in the last TrialGP competition held at the end of June in Lourdes, France.

WORLD CHAMPION, MARC COLOMER, LEAVES HIS MARK

The re-working of already established principles by Gas Gas and Torrot has blazed new trial in the world of trails racing. The Gas Gas TXTe EGD’s development was guided by the attentive eye, talent and experience of Marc Colomer, one of the key figures in development this new electric trials bike. The Catalan athlete’s mark and influence are more than evident in this project. That same commitment saw the multiple-time world champion roll up to the start line once again after 14 years away from competition, debuting the new TXTe EGD at the world level.

THE FIRST STEP IN LIMITED PRODUCTION

The Gas Gas TXTe EGD had evident success in its debut at the first Edition of the TrialE Cup, taking victory for the first time in the history of the electric bike category at the highest level of international competition. Perhaps even more impressive, the TXTe EGD took better results than its petrol-powered Trial125 rivals. Gas Gas plans to produce a limited edition of units of its exclusive Gas Gas TXTe EGD model.

<![CDATA[The first step on the way to trial]]> http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/781-.html http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/781-.html Wed, 08 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0100 781 http://www.gasgas.com/http://www.gasgas.com/us/news/781-.html

Gas Gas launches the new TXT 80 Racing, the first natural step so the latest generation can develop all their talent and potential in the world of trial. The baby of the family has inherited the same frame as its bigger brothers. It has the same tubular moly-chrome steel frame that has already been tried and tested in the Gas Gas TXT models and so gives this little trial bike a quality and reliability beyond its segment.

The brand from Girona is proud to announce a new addition to the family. The smallest and most looked forward to, the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing had arrived with a size that is smaller and better adapted to promising future trial riders. A new arrival with traits marked by the TXT genes from part of a saga that has made trial history.

A small-scale reflection of the brilliant TXT saga

The similarities between them all are obvious. This is also true for the new TXT 80 Racing, a children’s bike that not only shares the frame as its big cylindered brothers but also its looks and decoration. It also has elements such as the exhaust and silencer of a bike that has adapted its size to the height and weight of the smallest rider, taking into account both comfort and ergonomics when ridden and taking command of the situation.

In this way, the new TXT 80 Racing has taken on board various changes, such as the incorporation of foot-pegs positioned further forward and slightly higher so children can have a better posture on the bike and reach the handlebar and the brake and clutch levers more easily, giving a better sense of safety and control.

These new characteristics are added to the adaptation of the swing-arm, which has been shortened together with the wheels that have been made smaller with 19” on the front and 17” on the back. This bike also takes the lower weight of its rider into account and so has new front forks and a rear monoshock specifically designed for this model allowing for the lower weight.

New engine together with a long list of new features

The smallest members of the family are traditionally those that are most looked after, and the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing is no exception. In the heart of the factory in Girona, the R+D department has been tasked with taking care of even the smallest details of the little Gas Gas trial bike. 

The new TXT 80 Racing has anew engine in its 2018 version. A new engine based on the  professional trial unit sharing the maximum number of components and presents its rider with a new piston, crank-shaft, primary drive sprocket and nut, Hidria magnetic flywheel, –with the possibility of adding an inertial flywheel-, Spal fan and DellOrto carburettor in accordance tot the engine capacity. A long list of new features giving us an overview of the complete bike thanks to the endless quality details of the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing, a bike which has adapted its light touch gear change and its new exhaust outlet to the needs of the new engine. Likewise its secondary transmission has a fully covered half-inch chain to comply with the stringent FIM trial competition regulations.

Finally, it should be mentioned that riders of this new 2018 version can incorporate, if they wish, our optional lighting system. The new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing arrives prepared with the electrical installation needed so the rider just has to connect the front and back light kits with easy to use connectors.

There are certain passions, such as the two-wheeled variety, that pass down from father to child, from generation to generation, forming common ties between the members of a family, united by the same enthusiasm.

In a short time, the new E-Kids range has become the first step for the youngest riders in the off-road world. Fitted with a 48 V electric motor, with power which can be adjusted between 350 and 1500 W, these E-Kids models are manufactured taking into account the children’s progressive learning in the trial, enduro or supermoto specialities. 

And it is not only the children’s safety being taken care of but also the peace of mind of their parents. All the Gas Gas E-Kids 10 and 12 –in all their different versions – have a ‘Parental Control’. A wireless control system which permits parents to remotely configure and even deactivate their children’s bikes with a practical application designed for both iOS and Android devices. Operational parameters are easily programmed with the software that can be downloaded from the Gas Gas website. At the same time, all the E-Kids bikes have a manually operated switch just behind the headlight mounting which reduces power by 50% with just one click.

 

Manufactured in Salt (Girona) with the maximum European guarantees of quality and safety, the new Gas Gas E-Kids have an easily rechargeable lithium battery which means that performance won’t drop during hours of use. The long travel EBR suspension, the sensitive braking system, together with the agile steel chrome molybdenum chassis and the tyres according to the bike version -trial, enduro and supermoto- achieve a bike completely adapted to the youngest rider.

This is the winning formula for the greatest fun and safety for transmitting a passion for the world of two wheels and a respect for the off-road environment to girls and boys.
