DOUBLE TOP-FIVE AT WASHOUGAL NATIONAL THE BEST YET FROM RYDER DIFRANCESCO AND PIERCE BROWN

View Profile
A season-best performance from Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing duo Ryder DiFrancesco and Pierce Brown saw both 250MX team riders finish inside the top five overall at Saturday's Washougal National, completing Round 8 of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in style.
  • A double top-five from Ryder D and PB highlights season so far
  • Fourth in Moto 1 and the round DiFrancesco's best-ever professional result
  • Confidence on the up leading into two-week break in the series
Despite qualifying down the order in 16th position, Ryder D was able to capitalize on strong starts inside the top three during both races and made it count. He raced hard to fourth position in Moto 1 on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition to seal a career-best score, then produced a sixth-place finish in Moto 2 for P4 overall. Ryder DiFrancesco:  "That was my best finish that I've had and we're happy with that achievement. I had two good starts today, so I was able to learn the speed up front more, and I keep getting better in terms of overall finishes. I'm excited to keep improving and the goal is to get on the podium by the end of the year. I'm looking forward to these couple of off weekends now." Brown was on the pace from the outset among the woods of Washougal, slotting into fourth as qualifying wrapped up, and then racing forward from outside the top 10 to sixth in the opening race. He was further toward the front in the final encounter, eventually making his way to P5 at the checkered flag, which placed him fifth overall. Pierce Brown:   "Washougal was a much better day for me after the last two weeks didn't go to plan. It was refreshing to get a solid overall result today, which is tied with my best result of the season, and I'm looking forward to putting in the work over the break before Unadilla!"

The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing teammates continue to improve in terms of the championship standings as well, with PB currently placed seventh and DiFrancesco ninth. The team will take two weekends off now before action resumes at Unadilla.

RYDER D MATCHES CAREER-BEST 250MX RESULT AT MILLVILLE WITH SIXTH OVERALL

View Profile
Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Ryder DiFrancesco impressed with his highest overall finish of P6 in the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship at the Spring Creek National, also matching his career-best and managing a top-five moto result in the rain-delayed final outing.
  • Ryder D matches his career-best result at Spring Creek
  • Fifth in Moto 2 also equals highest result of the season
  • A difficult day for PB amidst ongoing health challenges
DiFrancesco qualified in 13th position and then found himself outside of the top 20 at the start of Moto 1, but managed to slice his way through the pack on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition to salvage 12th place and a decent haul of points for his efforts.
After being delayed due to storms, the second moto saw riders facing a rain-soaked track when the gates dropped, and this time around Ryder D was able to benefit from improved track position. He completed lap one in P6 and rode hard from there, taking the checkered flag in fifth, which equaled his second moto result from High Point. That elevated him to sixth overall and he stays 10th in the title race.
Ryder DiFrancesco:   "Millville was good. It started out rough, but got better throughout the day. We need to sort out the first motos, because the second motos have been good – I just need to put the two together. Washougal is next and one of my favorites, so I'm excited to go back west at this stage of the season."
For Brown, his qualification was solid in seventh position, before he raced to 13th in the opening race of the weekend. With rain falling at the beginning of Moto 2, he was further impacted by a first-turn pile-up that left him fighting from the back of the pack, eventually climbing to 14th. That put him P14 overall for the weekend, which sees him maintain seventh in the championship standings.
Pierce Brown:  "It wasn't a good day here at Millville for me, unfortunately. I haven't been feeling like myself lately with some sicknesses, so we will have to figure that out, but we did what we could today in the end. Onto Washougal!"

DOUBLE TRIALGP PODIUM FOR BUSTO IN GERMANY

View Profile
GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jaime Busto has snagged two podium results in Germany at round four of the 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship! Placing second on both days in Neunkirchen, the Spaniard’s strong results move him up to third in the championship standings at the halfway point of the season. Nice one, Jaime! In the ultra-competitive Trial2 class, both Sondre Haga and Jack Dance claimed consistent results across the weekend to maintain fifth and ninth, respectively, in the overall standings.
  • Jaime Busto runner-up both days in Germany
  • Spaniard moves up to third in TrialGP standings
  • Dance and Haga collect valuable championship points
Germany marked the fourth stop on the 2024 TrialGP calendar, where the town of Neunkirchen provided the perfect stage for the world’s best trial riders to battle it out. Jaime Busto came out swinging on Saturday morning, making minimal mistakes to hold second place at the halfway point. In what was a nearly faultless second lap apart from one tricky section, Jaime secured an excellent second place, 21 marks ahead of his nearest competitor. Across the whole day, the super Spaniard went clean on an impressive 18 out of the 24 sections. That’s what we’re talking about! Starting off his day strongly again on Sunday morning, Busto had a solid first lap where he settled into a confident rhythm on his TXT GP 300. Taking on each stage for the second time on lap two, Jaime was struggling with a small injury to his arm and made some minor mistakes. However, his grit and consistency paid off as he secured second place by nine marks. After four rounds, the Spaniard has moved up to third in the overall standings, with just five points separating him and second place. GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jack Dance and Sondre Haga put on a show for spectators in the Trial2 category, delivering some excellent riding on the technical sections, which featured steep, tree-covered bankings and huge boulders throughout. Jack had a strong start to day one, cleaning the first six sections, but a series of small mistakes meant that the Brit was forced to settle for sixth place. Riding his electric TXE GP, teammate Sondre was sitting comfortably in fourth place all day until an unfortunate five on the final section pushed him down to ninth. Sunday saw similar fortunes for the GASGAS Trial2 duo, with Haga coming home in 10th place after a difficult second lap. The Norwegian maintains his position in fifth overall in the Trial2 standings, with all eyes on Belgium next week to try and fight his way back up the order. Jack put in a strong performance on his first lap but took on a few too many marks on lap two, which left him in 12th place. Dance also retains ninth in the championship standings at the halfway point of the 2024 series.
Round five of the 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship will be held in Comblain-au-Pont, Belgium in just one week’s time on July 13-14.
Jaime Busto:  “I had a great flow today but just made a few too many mistakes on my second lap. Day one was great, I was really happy to finish second and all day I was super pleased with the feeling on the bike. I’m especially proud of my second lap where I only made one mistake on one section. I’ve moved up to second in the championship now, which is great for myself and the team, and I can’t wait for the next rounds.”
Sondre Haga:   “I had a bit of a frustrating start to the weekend on day one, as I had a really good feeling on the bike and I was lying in fourth until the very last section. The results were super close though, so even a small mistake meant that I ended up ninth. On Sunday I had a really good first lap but a combination of bad luck and mistakes on my part on lap two meant that I was out of the running for the top positions. We still want to take as many positives as we can, though, and get ready for Belgium next weekend!”
Jack Dance:   “Saturday was a really positive day for me! I felt really confident on the first lap, but I just got a few unfortunate marks which prevented me from finishing higher up. Sunday wasn’t my best day – I was riding well on lap one except for a few small mistakes and my second lap was even better. However, Trial2 is so close, you can’t afford to make any mistakes, so I know where I need to improve, and we can take plenty of positives from this weekend as a team.”
Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager:   “What a weekend for Jaime! Saturday was great, he got into a good rhythm all day and was pushing hard! I’m super happy because I could see how much he was enjoying the course as it really suited his style. He got really close to Toni [Bou] which is really positive for the team. On Sunday too, Jaime was super close to Toni all day until his arm gave him some trouble. We’re catching up in the standings too – third overall now for Jaime which is exciting. In Trial2, it is getting closer and closer each round, so even though Jack and Sondre were working really hard all weekend, it wasn’t enough to finish higher. We are learning from it and looking forward to going again next weekend in Belgium!”

Acosta bags 7th at German Grand Prix

View Profile
Pedro Acosta reset the speed for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 by circling the revolving layout of the Sachsenring to score nine points. The MotoGP rookie filled 7th position after 30 laps in Germany for round nine of 20 in the 2024 campaign. Augusto Fernandez leant on his improving race set-up and was unlucky to classify 16th at the packed circuit.  
  • Acosta learns the twist and turns of the Sachsenring with the GASGAS RC16 and applies his pace and talent to earn a top seven result
  • Fernandez makes further progress with his upward rate of competitiveness and was only denied championship points by a post-race tire pressure penalty
  • Daniel Holgado raises the GASGAS red flag in Moto3 as part of an entertaining multi-rider scrap for the podium. The Spaniard finishes 7th
  Almost 100,000 spectators crammed into the hills and corners of the Sachsenring for a bright, dry and breezy ninth spectacle of 2024 MotoGP. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 were in a determined rumble for maximum points around the compact 13-corner layout that saw lap-times wedged close and chances for overtaking at a premium. Pedro Acosta ended the first lap in 13th position after starting from 10th on the grid. The Spaniard then began to find his pace, his confidence and the possibilities to move forwards. He followed Brad Binder for the majority of the distance but pulled up and away to reach 7th.  Pedro sits 6th in the world championship standings. Augusto Fernandez blasted away from 15th. The former Moto2 world champ has been improving his feeling and race setting with the GASGAS RC16 and was able to circulate Sachsenring at a more effective pace. He took 14th by the flag but was later dropped to 16th for a tire pressure rule infringement. MotoGP engines will remain dormant for the rest of July and into the summer break. The paddock will reform in the vast expanses of the Silverstone circuit for the British Grand Prix at the beginning of August. Pedro Acosta, 7th: “Tough! On one hand we saved the race with this result and on the other we learned and understood many things that we can send to the boys in the factory. We will have an important couple of weeks. Let’s see what we can do and how we can improve.” Augusto Fernandez, 16th : “A hard race and a long one because I struggled a lot with rear grip but, on the positive side, we are back to a better feeling and better level. We were close on lap-times to the other GASGAS and KTMs and it’s a shame about the penalty because that would have given us a few points. Let’s see at Silverstone if we can continue in the way we’ve been working and be more competitive in the second half of the year.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “We end this German GP in a positive way and the last two weekends have shown just how competitive and difficult this category can be. Pedro had a decent start but dropped back to 12th before he fought back to 7th. It was good but we need more, and we want more and we need to analyze the package to find something for Silverstone. Not a bad weekend for Augusto, despite the final result on the sheet. This is how we want to see him fighting on the bike. We’ll start our summer break and come back fully charged for the next race.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Germany   1. Francesco Bagnaia (ITA) Ducati 40:40.063 2.

Daniel Holgado brought the red heat and was in contention until the last three laps when the group splintered and he finished in 7th. Jacob Roulstone made his rookie run of the racetrack in Saxony. The Australian was also in the heart of the scrap with his teammate but was punted off after contact with another rider. Jacob was able to survive the massive moment and stay on the bike but dropped down to 19th. He then fell at Turn 11 a lap later. Daniel Holgado, 7th : “Finally it was a good race for me after the rest of the weekend had been quite tough. I’m really happy with my pace and the way I could fight. I did my best and the team worked great. Now we can disconnect for a while and when we get to Silverstone I want to be fighting for the podium and the title again.” Jacob Roulstone, DNF : “That happened quite quick! I felt so comfortable on the bike and had figured everything out. I was controlling the pace and the tires. I was happy but then the contact happened and I’m a bit lost for words. Everything was bent on the bike afterwards and I lost it while trying to get back in the rhythm. It was good to have more experience back at the front. I’m disappointed but these things happen.” Holgado holds 3rd position in the Moto3 points table with a slender gap of 1 to further promotion. Roulstone is poised in 12th as the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 team stand 3rd from the 13 on the grid.   Results Moto3 Grand Prix of Germany   1. David Alonso (COL) GASGAS 33:02.956 2.

LÄNGENFELDER IS KING OF THE MX2 GATE DROPS IN LOMBOK WHILE PRADO TAKES FOURTH IN MXGP

View Profile
The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team faced the brutal heat of Lombok in awesome style, with Simon Längenfelder dominating the MX2 gate drops and finishing third overall. Jorge Prado battled fiercely in the MXGP, securing 4th overall and retaining his second place in the world championship standings.
  • Simon Längenfelder dominated the MX2 gate drops with back-to-back holeshot awards, finishing the weekend third overall with P5-P2 race results.
  • Jorge Prado battled fiercely in the MXGP, securing 4th overall with consistent finishes of 4th and 5th, retaining his second place in the world championship standings.
  • The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team faced intense heat and challenging conditions at the MXGP of Lombok, now preparing for round thirteen in the Czech Republic on July 20/21.
Screaming hot temperatures, back-to-back holeshots, and a podium were the order of the day at the MXGP of Lombok for Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team. The Indonesian double-header presented a unique challenge for the riders and teams; with the heat, time difference, and reverse track layouts all combining to create a formidable fly-away challenge at the midpoint of the season.  In MX2, Simon Längenfelder proved to be the master of the gate drop at the MXGP of Lombok, leaving his rivals in the dust, to secure back-to-back holeshot awards. What’s more, the German rider shredded his way to an overall third place finish, by taking third in qualifying, and then P5-P2 results across both of Sunday’s races. Infact, in the opening MX2 moto Längenfelder led initially - showing his raw speed despite the pressure cooker conditions. In MX2 race two, Längenfelder once again led the way on the opening lap, before rival Lucas Coenen overtook him on the final turn, pushing him to 2nd by lap four. Defending hard, Längenfelder was overtaken by Mikkel Haarup on lap 11 and Andrea Adamo on lap 12, dropping to 4th. A final lap crash cost him another place, finishing P5. In MXGP, defending champion Jorge Prado just missed out on the podium, finishing fourth overall but retaining his second place in the world championship standings. After securing P4 in Saturday’s qualifying session, Prado had an explosive start in the first moto, fighting his way into 3rd place. However, with two laps to go, he came under attack from Calvin Vlaanderen and ultimately finished 4th. In Sunday’s final moto, Prado initially dropped to 9th but battled back to 6th by lap two and 5th by lap five. He maintained this position to the final flag, rounding out the weekend with 4-5 finishes. The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team now heads back to Europe for round thirteen at the MXGP of Czech Republic on the technical Loket circuit on July 20/21. MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: "The second round here in Lombok is done - it has been a difficult weekend for me. I didnt have the best feeling from the start of the weekend. P6 in practice and then P4 gate pick from the qualy race. On Sunday I made some fast passes, but I felt my starts could have been better. I didnt have enough pace to run with the guys up front. I was loosing alot of energy for both motos. Fourth overall is not what I wanted - but I gave 100%, and now I’m looking forward to Loket!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: "The conditions have been super tough, and I’m happy to get this result. I was giving it my all to keep Kay behind me in the final moto. To be honest my energy was just finished at the end of the race. My mechanics wrote ‘podium if you finish’ - so I just went for it. I made it! I’m super happy with the holeshots too - it’s a great way to finish here in Indonesia!” MXGP of Lombok Results: MXGP – Overall:

RYDER DIFRANCESCO RACES TO EIGHTH OVERALL IN 250MX AT REDBUD NATIONAL

View Profile
Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Ryder DiFrancesco continues to rise in the middle stages of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship after claiming eighth overall at today's RedBud National, spending his time in the spotlight during the final 250MX moto of Round 6.
  • Team unveils a special one-off livery for the 4th of July weekend
  • Ryder D pushes hard to 13-7 scores for eighth overall in 250MX
  • Speed is there, but fortunes aren't for Pierce Brown once again
With the team's 450MX Class entry, Justin Barcia, sidelined while allowing his knees time to recover, all attention was placed upon Ryder D and Pierce Brown on their GASGAS MC 250F Factory Editions, and the pair qualified in 11th and 12th positions following this morning's opening sessions of the weekend.
For DiFrancesco, a crash on the opening lap of Moto 1 saw him claw his way back from outside of the top 30 to eventually find points in 13th place. The final race was far better in running as high as third early on and then maintaining a top-five position for over half of the race distance. He eventually took the checkered flag in P7, which placed him eighth for the round, and he is now 10th in the championship.
Ryder DiFrancesco:   "RedBud was a better weekend for me. Qualifying was decent and then in the first moto my start was okay, but I ended up going down and fought back to 13th. Second moto, I was in P2 off the start and ran up front for a long time, before I went back to seventh. We're ready for Millville and we'll keep building!"
Brown's opening moto was somewhat smoother, finishing 10th despite a fall of his own, and then he faced added adversity in Moto 2. Unfortunately, contact with another rider on the opening lap forced PB out of contention before it even really began, which placed him 17th overall. Still, he is P7 in the points and is determined to turn his luck around as we enter the series' second half.
Pierce Brown:  "It was a tough day at RedBud. I'm disappointed because I've been feeling really good on the bike lately, but the results just haven't shown it. Moto 1, I was battling around seventh or eighth and fell, so ended up 10th. The second moto, I got together with another rider and fell on the first lap, which damaged my bike and I had to DNF. That's tough, but onto the next round!"

The 4.5km and 18-corner TT Circuit Assen benefitted from dry and warm weather for the third day in a row but with slightly cooler temperatures compared to the hot sunshine that coated Saturday’s quali and Sprint. The circumstances changed the parameters of the 26-lap race for the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 duo and from their information and data obtained through Saturday’s 13-lapper. Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez started from 10th and 22nd on the grid respectively for the second time across the weekend. Acosta was still able to demonstrate his fierce raw talent and positive synergy with the GASGAS RC16 by surging into the top six at the start. He then kept a steady pace and only lost the tow of the small pack jostling for 3rd in the final laps. Trying to flick through Turn 7 for the final time Pedro went into the gravel. Augusto Fernandez had made positive ground in the Saturday Sprint by moving up from P22 to finish P15. The Spaniard was looking for more of the same on Sunday and his 14th provided a bright end to the GP. Acosta sits 6th in the world championship standings as the campaign nears the halfway point and Augusto is 17th. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 now look to a very different racing prospect next week where the shortest and most compact circuit on the calendar – the Sachsenring – will stage the German Grand Prix and a fixture that will then take MotoGP into a summer break. Augusto Fernandez, 14th : “A very hard weekend where I just missed feeling on the track. I was hoping for a bit more today but I also knew it was important to finish the race. At least I took two points. That was a small positive. I’m looking forward to Sachsenring already where I hope we can be a bit more competitive.” Pedro Acosta, DNF: “Not as tough as we were expecting, to be honest. After a difficult weekend we saw that we were able to be competitive in the end. The crash was tough to understand but we need to keep pushing because we are not so far.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “Not an easy weekend for the team. Augusto took two points in what was a tricky GP for him and his feeling here. We need to take these two points as a reward and motivation to explore a different direction. For Pedro it was also tough. We saw some bright moments but the fall on the last lap shows we still have something to improve. The race was 30 seconds faster than last year and this demonstrates just how competitive the class is. The  Sachsenring is a completely different circuit with different characteristics, so let’s see what will happen.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of the Netherlands   1.

The Moto3 field provided gripping and tense entertainment as a 13-rider group disputed the podium positions. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s Daniel Holgado was among the masses but just couldn’t find the extra tenths of a second per lap in the crucial final phases to make a bid for a trophy. He acquired 5 championship points for 11th place. Jacob Roulstone was a little further back and banked 1 point for 15th. Daniel Holgado, 11th : “It was a difficult race and I didn’t have the best feeling. I pushed hard every lap but, overall, a difficult weekend. In a few days we have another opportunity to keep pushing for the championship. The team are doing a great job and we need to keep going. More in Sachsenring. It will be better for us there.” Jacob Roulstone, 14h : “Overall I’m satisfied with some points. It was a challenging weekend. It didn’t click for me on Friday and I felt like I was a session or two behind. I had high expectations of myself. I was trying to gain positions and not make too much contact in the race! I wasn’t too confident with my pace today so did the best I could in the group around me. I positioned myself and was quite happy to win the battle there. The team worked really hard to keep me positive and focused for this weekend so I cannot thank them enough.” Holgado held P2 in the world championship standings prior to the trip to Assen and is now 3rd; 43 points from 1st and 6 points ahead of his next nearest pursuer. Roulstone is inside the top eleven in his rookie season and the team are 3rd in their respective list.   Results Moto3 Grand Prix of the Netherlands   1. Ivan Ortola (ESP) KTM 33:45.971 2.

PRADO VICTORIOUS AND LÄNGENFELDER BATTLES HARD: HIGHLIGHTS FROM MXGP OF WEST NUSA TENGGARA

View Profile
A hot and heavy first weekend at Lombok for the MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara saw Jorge Prado claim an awesome MXGP win, while Simon Längenfelder raced to a solid seventh against the odds in MX2.
  • Jorge Prado and the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team claimed victory at the MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara.
  • Simon Längenfelder raced to 6-6 in MX2 to finish seventh overall.
  • Prado and Längenfelder placed in P2 and P3 across MXGP and MX2 standings respectively at the season’s halfway marker.
With the 2024 FIM Motocross season hitting the half way marker, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team and Jorge Prado set out to Indonesia with two goals in mind; score as many points as possible and recapture the top step of the podium. What’s more, with a double feature of back-to-back GPs in Indonesia in store, there was no better opportunity to crank on the gas, and get after it. After two days of fast and furious racing around the 1640m Lombok circuit for the MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara - officially round 11 of MXGP - Jorge Prado delivered in awesome style.  Shrugging off the intense 31°C heat, as well as a challenging hard-pack track layout which quickly developed a reputation for catching out even the very best riders - Jorge Prado threw down a masterclass performance, finishing 2nd and 1st respectively across both of Sunday’s motos, to secure the overall event win.  While the rivalries on track against Prado - primarily featuring Tim Gajser, Jeffrey Herlings, and Jeremy Seewer - criss-crossed similarly across both motos; the main notable difference came in the form of a huge change in track conditions. Sunday’s opening moto was run on a predictable dry surface, however after the lunch break, the track had been over-watered during the afternoon re-prep leading to a maze of puddles and thick mud.  Unfazed, Prado rode his GASGAS MC 450 F with incredible precision. Pulling away from other riders falling in his wake to finish the day’s second moto with a cool and unassailable 5.367 second lead over rival Herlings by the final flag. The result means Prado has clawed back the gap in the standings to just 22 points behind Gajser in a single weekend and adds to his tally of seven wins this season. Meanwhile in MX2 Simon Längenfelder faced a tougher time, but kept fighting hard. Starting strong with a holeshot and leading early laps in the opening moto, Längenfelder held a comfortable lead of 1.6 seconds by lap three. However, a mistake on lap eight dropped him to 2nd place.  With the heat sapping his strength at the end of the race Längenfelder ultimately finished 6th. In the second moto, Längenfelder battled from 6th place again; making crucial passes to briefly move up to 5th by lap nine. Despite setbacks in the second half of the race, he finished sixth once more, meaning a P7 overall result. With a few days training and recovery ahead, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team will return to Lombok next weekend, July 6-7, for the MXGP of Lombok, featuring the same circuit run in reverse. MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: "I mentioned before coming to Indonesia that my goal was to win here and every GP. It was disappointing about the result in Maggiora, but I was fully focused on coming back strong. We started the second half of the season well with this result. I felt good today on the bike, but it was physically demanding. Both races were different, but this one was particularly challenging due to the physical conditions. The heat was intense, and the track was extremely rough and sketchy. There was a lot of water put down after the break. I got caught a few times in mud holes, and my bike went sideways. However, I regrouped, controlled my pace, and managed to take the win. Now, let's have a good weekend of training and rest to be ready for round two here in Indonesia!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: "The first weekend here in Lombok is over, and to be honest, it was a bit of a struggle. In the first race, I had a good start and was leading. I felt comfortable on the bike, but unfortunately, I had a small tip-over, and after that, things went downhill. I felt like I had expended all my energy, and the last 10 minutes were tough. I finished 6th. In the second race, the heavily watered track presented a challenge, but overall, I felt good. Despite a less than ideal start, I made some good passes. Towards the end, I lost a few positions and finished sixth again. Now it's time to recover this week and analyze what we can improve for the next weekend.” MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara Results: MXGP – Overall:

JUSTIN BARCIA PRESSES ON TO SEVENTH OVERALL IN THE SANDS OF SOUTHWICK

View Profile
A determined seventh-place finish at Southwick's fifth round of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship was impressive from an injured Justin Barcia in 450MX, as Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing teammates Pierce Brown and Ryder DiFrancesco also pushed hard throughout both 250MX motos.
  • Strong opening moto result the highlight for Justin Barcia
  • Bam Bam will now take time out to help his injured knees heal up
  • PB and Ryder D keep on pushing with top 10 moto scores
Barcia qualified seventh before delivering a convincing P6 result in Moto 1, but was forced to recover from a fall at the beginning of race two. He battled back to 11th by race's end, which sealed him seventh overall in the ever-challenging Southwick sand, and is currently ranked eighth in the point standings. After continuing to experience trouble with a pair of knee injuries that have largely affected his outdoor campaign, Bam Bam has opted to sit out the next block of races – aiming to return for his home race at Unadilla in August – in order to allow his injuries to recover properly. Barcia is confident that when he returns onboard the GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition, he will be even more competitive into the final stages of the series. Justin Barcia:   "Today was an eventful day, a lot of stuff going on! I qualified P7, which was pretty good, and the motos were decent for where we're at. I was sixth in Moto 1 and then had a first turn crash in the second moto, but made a hard charge to 11th. Unfortunately, I've been dealing with some knee injuries since about the week before Salt Lake City, and I've been pushing through it. One knee has a torn/sprained MCL, and my other knee had bursitis, with a little bit of a tear in the meniscus – not too bad, nothing that requires surgery. Because of the swelling, two of my tendons finally let go at High Point, but the good thing is that technically they will just scar up and be fine. I haven't been riding during the week at all, just been trying to race on the weekends for my fans and the crew, but it's got to the point now that we have a really good bike, my riding is really good, and these knees are holding us back. We want to be better than fifth-to-eighth, so we are going to take some time off. I will still be able to train quite a bit, do PT on the knees, and see what we can do to get better. All in all, they just need some time to heal up, so the goal right now, I would say, is to come back for Unadilla. I won't miss too many races if everything works out, which I believe it will, and then we'll come back swinging!" In 250MX, Brown qualified 10th and then raced his way forward to eighth in the first moto despite not being completely comfortable. The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team made improvements to his bike settings for the unique conditions ahead of Moto 2, where he had to fight from 40th to 12th following an early crash. That landed him P9 overall, sitting seventh in the title race. Pierce Brown:   "In the first moto I struggled, but we made some changes for Moto 2, and I felt a lot better. Unfortunately, I fell on the first lap and had to come back from 40th to 12th, so my riding was there, but obviously it didn't show on paper. We don't get sand like this in California, so it is hard to prep properly for this race – we'll move onto RedBud and keep charging." A consistent showing from Ryder D saw him go 10-11 for 11th overall this weekend, continuing to move forward even if a late mistake bumped him down the order on the final lap of the second race. He sits 12th in points on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition with six rounds left to run in the 2024 season. Ryder DiFrancesco:   "Southwick was okay. It was an improvement from last year, I got a little bit better in the sand, but a mistake on the last lap cost me a couple of spots overall. It was a step in the right direction, we had two solid motos, and I'm ready for RedBud." Next Race:  July 6 – RedBud, Michigan

    View Profile
    That’s how it’s done! GASGAS Factory Racing’s Andrea Verona came back to EnduroGP action with a bang at round four, claiming the overall win on home soil on day two and topping the Enduro2 podium both days. After a six-week break in the FIM EnduroGP World Championship calendar, the Italian enduro ace put on a show in front of legions of loyal fans in Bettola to further extend his Enduro2 championship lead and maintain second place in the overall EnduroGP standings.
    • Verona bags EnduroGP victory on day two in Italy
    • Double Enduro2 win for the Italian
    • GP of Italy saw thousands of fans show their support for Andrea
    Round four of the 2024 EnduroGP season was a special one for GASGAS Factory Racing’s Andrea Verona, marking his home grand prix in Bettola, Italy. Firing into action on Friday night for the Super Test, Verona enjoyed the support of the passionate crowd of fans, but unfortunately a costly mistake ruled him out of topping the timesheets. Andrea got on the gas right from the start on Saturday morning, winning the first test outright. A mixed bag of test results followed, with a few mistakes costing the Italian the overall win. Spurred on by the thousands-strong crowd of Tifosi and gaining momentum as the day went on, Verona steered his EC 350F to victory in the Enduro2 class with a third-place result in EnduroGP. Fired-up after a strong day one, Andrea returned to battle on Sunday ready to show his competition who’s boss on home soil. Despite torrential rain causing significant changes to the special tests, the 25-year-old remained unfazed and tackled the difficult conditions with unbelievable speed and skill. Placing top two on nearly every test, Verona’s day-long consistency paid off as he claimed his second overall EnduroGP victory of the season, much to the delight of the hordes of Italian fans.  Topping the Enduro2 class for the sixth consecutive time in 2024, Verona now sits an impressive 39 points clear of his closest rival. He also maintains second overall in the EnduroGP class with three rounds remaining. The GASGAS Factory Racing rider has his eyes now set on round five’s GP of Slovakia in Gelnica on July 12-14. Andrea Verona:  “To win the overall on day two at my home GP is an unbelievable feeling! I put up a fight all day for the win and managed to make a decent gap. I nearly lost it when I crashed near the end of the day, but I went full gas on the final test and managed to get back on top! Saturday was an up and down day with some good results, but I just made too many mistakes. Overall though, I’m super happy to have won at home and the support of the fans has been incredible, it made all the difference.” Results: FIM EnduroGP World Championship, Round 4 Day 1 – EnduroGP

    MAGGIORA ROLLERCOASTER: WILDCARD LATA PODIUMS WHILE PRADO BATTLES ON

    View Profile
    Jorge Prado battled through a tough Maggiora weekend, securing P2 in the first moto but DNF in the second due to a crash. Wildcard Valerio Lata dazzled with a P3 podium in his second MX2 race, finishing 5-3. Simon Längenfelder holds second in the championship after 2-8 finishes.
    • Jorge Prado faced a tough weekend at Maggiora, scoring P2 in the opening moto and a DNF in the second moto due to an unavoidable crash.
    • Wildcard Valerio Lata thrilled the team and his home fans with a P3 podium in his second MX2 race, finishing 5-3.
    • Simon Längenfelder retains second in the MX2 championship standings after 2-8 finishes.
    The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team hit the halfway mark of the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship at the iconic Maggiora track in Italy. Nestled in the picturesque Piedmont region of northwest Italy, this historic venue has been a staple of the MXGP calendar since 1966.
    True to the Italian Grand Prix style, the weekend was a rollercoaster of highs and lows, marked by changing weather and challenging track conditions. In the first MXGP moto, Jorge Prado shot out from a sixth-place grid slot to quickly grab third place. After rival Seewer crashed, Prado held onto second until lap 13. In the closing stages, Prado engaged in a fierce battle with Jeffrey Herlings, showcasing his skill and reducing the gap to eventual winner Tim Gajser to just 1.570 seconds. With the sun shining and the track drying for the second moto, hopes were high for Prado. However, disaster struck just after the start with a huge multi-rider crash that Prado simply couldn't avoid. Despite quickly remounting and riding with bent handlebars, Prado and the team decided to retire on lap six to prevent further injury, preparing for the upcoming races in Indonesia. Prado currently sits second in the championship standings ahead of Jeffrey Herlings, with a 37 point advantage. In MX2, the excitement continued with wildcard Valerio Lata thrilling the home fans with an impressive P3 podium finish in only his second MX2 race this season. Lata, who previously finished 13th overall at the MXGP of Galicia, has been on fire in the EMX250 championship, where he holds third place. However his performance on the 1730m hard pack of the historic Maggiora track was truly exceptional. Racing to a fifth-place finish in the first moto, Lata then fought to an edge-of-the-seat third place in the second moto, battling bar-to-bar with teammate Simon Längenfelder and rival Liam Everts, with only a 0.4 second margin at the finish. Längenfelder also delivered a quality performance at the MXGP of Italy, despite a crash in the second moto. In the opening moto, the German rider finished in a calculated second place. In the second moto, he was battling with Lata for third until a mistake in the deep cross ruts dropped him to eighth. With the season at its halfway point, the traditional fly-away races in Indonesia are next, starting with the MXGP of West Nusa Tenggara in Lombok, Indonesia, on June 30th. MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: "We finished the GP of Maggiora, though not in the best way. It was a tough weekend for sure. On Saturday, it was pretty much all mud riding. During the qualifying race, I finished sixth, which was okay - I didn’t want to take any risks in those conditions. Then on Sunday, the conditions were a little better and drier, but that meant the track was pretty much a single line. For the first moto, I got out of the gate quite well, but then in the third corner, Gajser cross-rutted and came into me. He passed me there, and then we were battling pretty much for the whole moto. I caught up to him a little more at the end, and we were pretty close at the finish line. It was a good P2.
    During the second moto, I also had a very good start, but I went a bit wide into the second corner as I got off balance. Then the guy in front of me crashed, and though I tried to avoid him, I crashed as well. From there, it was difficult to say; there were many riders involved. I got a bit hurt, and the bike was damaged. I pulled off after a lap because I felt a little hurt, but everything seems fine. I just need to take it easy for a couple of days, and I should be okay to fight for the win in Indonesia!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: "I was having a good weekend until my crash in the second moto, so it was a shame about that. I made some great starts and thought I was riding really well with good speed. It was very difficult to pass on this track - even getting past the lapped riders was almost impossible. I was having a great time; my bike felt fantastic, but unfortunately, the crash took away the podium. I'm a little bit angry about that. However, the important thing is that we are healthy and can fight again in Indonesia!" MX2 - #53 - Valerio Lata: "It's unbelievable; I don't have the words right now - this is an absolute dream come true! I work every day for moments like this! This is the first time I've cried after a race. Finishing 5th in the first moto and 3rd in the second moto, and securing a third place overall podium here at home in Italy is beyond my wildest dreams! Thank you to my family, my team, mechanics, and sponsors; your support is incredible and means the world to me.” MXGP of Italy Results: MXGP – Overall:

    VICTORY FOR JAIME BUSTO AT TRIALGP OF ITALY

    View Profile
    What a weekend! Jaime Busto put in a commanding ride to claim his first win of the season on day two of the TrialGP of Italy. The GASGAS Factory Racing star’s impressive result leaves him in fourth overall, just two points shy of third in the 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship standings. In an impressive display of skill and consistency in the Trial2 class, both Jack Dance and Sondre Haga secured a pair of top-10 finishes in Valsassina to leave them ninth and fifth respectively in the overall standings.
    • Jaime Busto tops TrialGP podium on day two in Italy
    • First win of the season for the Spaniard
    • Jack Dance and Sondre Haga prove consistency is key in Trial2
    Heading to northern Italy for the third round of the 2024 TrialGP season, Valsassina proved a demanding course, even for the world’s best riders. The opening lap threw up plenty of super-tough obstacles, with Jaime Busto making a few costly mistakes on his TXT GP 300. Recovering well on the second lap, the Spaniard got down to business and climbed the leaderboard to ultimately finish in fifth place. Sunday was redemption day for Busto! The GASGAS Factory Racing ace sharpened his focus and rode a stellar second lap to emerge victorious in the final sections, finishing four marks ahead of second place. Thanks to his impressive result, the Spaniard is now knocking on the door of the top three in the overall standings, with just two championship points standing between him and third place. It was back to business for GASGAS Factory Racing in the Trial2 category! Both Jack Dance and Sondre Haga took to the technical course on day one with determination and drive after a difficult round two. The sections in Valsassina suited Jack, with the Brit feeling right at home in the mud and wet, putting in a strong ride to finish in seventh place. Teammate Sondre steered his TXE GP to an eighth-place result, pleased with the performance of his electric machine in the unfamiliar conditions. Day two saw the duo match their Saturday results, showcasing their consistency in a super-competitive class. Dance had another impressive day in the Trial2 category, with his seventh-place finish moving him up four places in the overall standings to ninth. Way to go, Jack! Haga came home in eighth place again just behind his teammate, putting his electric bike through its paces. The Norwegian now lies in fifth overall in the championship after three rounds. It’s all to play for! The 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship heads to Neunkirchen, Germany for its fourth round on July 5-7. Jaime Busto:   “It’s an incredible feeling being back on the top of the podium! After a difficult start to the season, I’m super happy for myself and the team that all our hard work is paying off now. I didn’t have the best day one, I made a lot of silly mistakes but I still had a really good feeling on the bike. So, on day two, I really focused and made sure I made as few mistakes as possible and took the win. I’m really happy!” Jack Dance:  “I’ve had a much better weekend, I felt really confident in my riding so I could push a lot harder. The sections suited me well, especially the muddy ones and the river, which worked to my advantage. It was a really technical trial with some big steps and stream sections, and I feel like I rode well all weekend. I made a few mistakes but used the second lap both days to pull it back and get into the top 10. On to the next one!” Sondre Haga:  “ Eighth both days was a decent weekend for me, it feels great to be closer to good results. I was happy with the majority of my riding, and going in the river with the electric bike for the first time was really cool. It’s a shame I couldn’t fight for the top positions this weekend, but I still feel really competitive. It’s a massive learning journey with the electric bike, and the conditions here in Italy were ones we hadn’t encountered before. We’re still in the fight, though, and I’m super excited for the next race.” Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager:  “We couldn’t be happier with day two! Jaime’s win was well deserved, especially after such a tough start to the season. It was a pretty tough first day in Italy, time-wise we were rushing around with Jaime all day. After an unfortunate crash at the end of section four, we had to change the handlebars. We kept up the fight all weekend though, and we trust that the results will keep coming for all three riders. In Trial2, it was great to see Jack back on form all weekend and feeling confident, and the same for Sondre. We have to remind the boys that the days can be long and hard, but anything can happen so to keep pushing. We are back!" Results: TrialGP of Italy TrialGP – day 1

    TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING TAKES TOP 10 RESULTS FROM HIGH POINT

    View Profile
    All three Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing riders finished inside the top 10 at the end of a tough High Point National this weekend, overcoming their share of adversity and led by 450MX charger Justin Barcia with eighth overall, while 250MX prospects Ryder DiFrancesco and Pierce Brown were seventh and eighth, respectively.
    • Justin Barcia battles technical conditions for 10-8 scores
    • A top-five in Moto 1 and P7 overall the best yet from Ryder D
    • Sixth in the final outing a solid finish for Pierce Brown
    Bam Bam was quick from the outset in tricky conditions to set the third-fastest time in the opening practice, but fell in the late stages of the session, which made for a long day while managing pain in his knees. After qualifying sixth on combined times, the GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition rider was still able to collect points across both races, going 10-8 for P8 overall, and he has retained seventh in the championship tally.
    Justin Barcia:   "Today started really good, P3 in the first practice, but then on the last lap I slid out on a blind jump and got my knee run over, so that was a struggle! I went out for the second session and was in pretty bad pain, so qualified P6 overall, and I knew the motos would be tough. We did everything we could – tape and that kind of thing – to get out there, but both of my knees are extremely weak right now and hurting pretty bad. We salvaged what we were able to today, which is a bit sad because the bike was really good and I thought we could have had a successful day. All-in-all, we scored points, and I'm happy we have a weekend off now so I can sort these knees out, and come out swinging for Southwick!"
    A fifth-place score in the first 250MX moto of the weekend was a season-high for Ryder DiFrancesco on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition, also matching his career-best achieved at the same venue one year ago. Ryder recovered from a crash in Moto 2 to salvage 13th, which was enough for seventh overall and his strongest finish of the 2024 outdoor season so far.
    Ryder DiFrancesco:   "High Point was better than the last few weeks. First moto I took fifth, and then in the second moto, I was running inside the top 10 and went down. That put me seventh overall, which is an improvement, so the goal going into Southwick is to put two solid motos together. It was a good day and I'm ready for a weekend off."
    Alongside Ryder D in 250MX, Pierce Brown qualified inside the top 10, but crashed in the opening encounter and was buried in the pack on his way to greeting the checkered flag in 13th. He was able to rebound in the second race for eighth overall, continuing his consistent run in terms of round results, and is currently positioned P8 in the championship rankings.
    Pierce Brown:   "We were eighth overall today. The first moto was not great after I fell and just couldn't find my flow, but we went back to a base setting for Moto 2 and the comfort was there for me again. My start was better and I ended up sixth, so closer to the front, and we're going to work on fixing our weaknesses during the break before Southwick."

    PRADO AND LÄNGENFELDER SHRED TO P3 IN THE LATVIAN SAND

    View Profile
    Jorge Prado and Simon Längenfelder secured third-place finishes in their respective MXGP and MX2 classes, carving through the challenging sand and hard pack in Latvia.
    • Jorge Prado charged back from an early crash to score 8-1 in Latvia and secure P3 overall.
    • Simon Längenfelder finished 4-2 in both hard fought motos to take his second successive podium of the season.
    • Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe to make wildcard MX2 entries at the upcoming MXGP of Italy at Maggiora.
    Shredding through the treacherous sand and underlying hard pack, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team battled the odds at the fearsome Kegums motocross track, officially known as the Zelta Zirgs circuit, in central Latvia, to deliver a haul of podiums in MXGP and MX2, with Jorge Prado and Simon Längenfelder both finishing P3 in their respective classes. Jorge Prado knew it was all to play for, arriving in Latvia with a slender single-point lead over his nearest championship rival. With the 2024 championship nearing its halfway marker, the battle is reaching fever pitch between defending champion Prado and rival Tim Gajser. Following a dry and sunny qualifying on Saturday, which saw Prado and Gajser separated by just a few seconds, rain on Sunday soaked the 1750m track and set the stage for an epic pair of MXGP motos.
    In race one, Prado burst out of the start gate and held third place by lap two, closely chasing Gajser by just 0.3 seconds. However, disaster struck on lap four when Prado aquaplaned on the jump behind pitlane, and crashed. Although Prado was able to quickly get going again, the incident dropped him to eighth place. A comeback charge saw Prado retake seventh and cross the line just behind sixth-placed Calvin Vlaanderen.
    Regrouped and refreshed for the second moto, Prado scorched the field with a masterclass performance, taking the holeshot by almost a clear bike length, and subsequently leading every single lap to the final flag. An 8-1 on the balance sheet means Prado secured third in the overall classification, and also moved to second in the championship. In MX2, a similar story unfolded for Simon Längenfelder, who was flying the flag for Red Bull GASGAS solo, with an injured Marc-Antoine Rossi forced to sit out from competition. In the first moto, the German racer put in a consistent performance, holding fourth from lights to flag. With the afternoon rain showers having passed, the second moto saw Längenfelder make a blistering start but run wide at turn one. Undeterred, Längenfelder charged back through to second place, and hold that position until the finish; building an impressive ten-second lead over Lucas Coenen. The second-place finish also gives Längenfelder his second back-to-back podium of the season so far.
    While Marc-Antoine Rossi is recovering from a serious ACL injury, both Beddini Junior GASGAS riders Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe will make wildcard entries at MXGP of Italy at Maggiora. Both Lata and Fredsoe impressed with points scoring finishes last time out for the team at the MXGP of Galicia, pointing to good things to come from both riders. 
    Stay tuned for more at the MXGP of Italy on June 16th. 
    MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: "It was a pity about the first moto; yesterday, I was feeling super good on the bike, but I just couldn't make the pass on Tim in the qualifying race. Today in the first moto, I got a good start, but he [Tim Gajser] passed me on the first lap. I was actually feeling really good with my rhythm, but then I went aquaplaning into the face of a jump with all the standing water on the track. So that resulted in P7 in the first moto, which wasn't the best. But then, with drier conditions in the second moto, I got the holeshot and led until the end! I’m happy with my performance and form in the second moto for sure, and hopefully we can get the red plate back as soon as possible!"
    MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: "I'm definitely pleased with the overall result. My performance in the first moto wasn't where I wanted it to be, but after making some setup changes, I felt much better in the second moto. Unfortunately, I made a small mistake in the last few laps while pushing as hard as I could. Congratulations to Sacha on the win. I'm already looking forward to the next race!"

    DOUBLE PODIUM FOR JAIME BUSTO AT TRIALGP OF ANDORRA

    View Profile
    And we’re back to business! After a tough opening round, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jaime Busto has come back swinging to claim two podium finishes at round two of the 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship in Andorra. Placing third on day one and finishing as runner-up on day two, the Spaniard is now knocking on the door of the top three in the overall standings, lying in fourth place. In the ultra-competitive Trial2 category, Sondre Haga had an impressive weekend to maintain fourth overall, while Jack Dance now sits in 13th place.
    • Jaime Busto stands on the TrialGP podium both days
    • Sondre Haga settling into a rhythm on his TXE GP
    • Tough weekend for Jack Dance at high-scoring Andorran venue
    Staged over 900-meters above sea level in the mountains of Sant Julia de Loria, Andorra, the second round of the 2024 TrialGP season provided plenty of entertainment. Riders were tasked with taking on steep, wooded mountain slopes and huge rock steps, all while at an incredibly high altitude!
    Fired-up and ready to show what he’s made of, Jaime Busto got straight to work on day one, tackling the technical course with skill. On what was an incredibly competitive second lap, the Spaniard held onto second place until the final few sections where, despite being tied for points, he was forced to settle for third. On Sunday, Jaime was determined to better his day one performance and put in a compelling ride on his TXT GP 300 to claim second, 14 marks ahead of his nearest competitor. The Spaniard now lies fourth in the overall TrialGP standings, just seven points shy of third place. That’s the Jaime we know! In what is proving to be a super-competitive category, round after round, the Trial2 class was the one to watch in Andorra. Day one saw GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sondre Haga, still recovering from illness, put in a strong performance on his electric TXE GP to come home in sixth place, just five points behind the top four riders, who were all tied on 12 marks. Jack Dance had a difficult day, finishing in 16th. Day two brought another set of consistent results in the Trial2 category, with Haga going one better to close out round two with a fifth-place finish. The man from Norway is now eyeing up the top three overall in the standings, lying in fourth place with just one point separating him from the podium. The steep, high-altitude course proved tricky for many, with Jack Dance taking 17th and moving to 13th in the standings after two rounds. Onwards and upwards in Italy! Next up in the 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship is round three in Valsassina, Italy in less than one week’s time on June 14-16. Jaime Busto: “I’m really happy to be back on the podium again! There were some really tough sections, so I didn’t have the best feeling on the bike, but I’m really motivated for the rest of the season. Day two was incredible! I started off really strong, even though I made a few mistakes on the first lap, but my second lap was great. I’m so happy to have finished second!” Sondre Haga: “Day one in Andorra was tough, I’ve been struggling with illness for a few weeks since Japan, so I couldn’t push as hard as I wanted to. I didn’t have a great first lap, so I tried to improve second time round but it wasn’t enough this time. Fifth place today was pretty good, it’s an improvement on yesterday, and all these championship points add up at the end of the day. Although it’s not been a perfect weekend, it’s been really good still and I’m hyped for Italy next weekend!” Jack Dance: “I have mixed emotions from this weekend as I felt I rode well through some sections, but others just weren’t up to standard. We need to take the positives from this weekend though and I think we’ve learned a lot as a team. I’m looking forward to going again in Italy!” Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager: “I’m really happy with how this weekend has gone, especially for Jaime! It’s great to see him back on the podium again and it’s boosted his and the team’s confidence a lot, and he clearly enjoyed this whole weekend. We have been working super hard since Japan so it’s definitely well deserved. I’m proud of the boys in Trial2 as well, Sondre had an amazing performance this weekend when results have been so close. What he is doing is really important for the development of the electric bike and he’s proving its incredible capability! Jack rode well, but unfortunately, every mark counted today, and even just losing a few could set you back four or five positions. However, I know he will come back super motivated and ready to take on Italy.” Results: TrialGP of Andorra TrialGP – day 1

    FOURTH OVERALL A SEASON-BEST FOR JUSTIN BARCIA IN THUNDER VALLEY NATIONAL

    View Profile
    An inspired performance from Justin Barcia at Thunder Valley saw the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider charge to fourth overall in Round 3 of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship, marking his best finish of the 2024 season to date outdoors. It was also a solid weekend out for 250MX teammate Pierce Brown on his way to P8 overall.
    • A 4-6 moto scorecard results in P4 overall for Bam Bam!
    • Fast starts reward Barcia in both 450MX races this afternoon
    • Sixth in the opening moto puts Pierce's form on display
    Barcia placed his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition eighth on the charts at the conclusion of qualifying this morning and then rocketed toward the front of the pack in the opening 450MX moto, sitting second in the early stages. He eventually settled in for a fourth-place result, and then backed that up with sixth in the final race, which saw him take home a season-best of P4 overall! Bam Bam is now seventh in the premier class standings.
    Justin Barcia:   "Thunder Valley was a pretty good day! I qualified decent in the top 10, which I wasn't thrilled about, but it was okay. I got off to two good starts, charged really hard all day, and the bike was really good. We made a change after the second practice and it was really consistent, so I was able to adapt to different lines today and felt comfortable. We came away with a solid fourth, so it's good. We want more, so we're going to keep pushing, and we'll get there soon!"
    Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's 250MX team was led by Brown, who qualified in P9 and then went on to take the checkered flag in sixth position at the end of Moto 1. With rain briefly falling at the beginning of Moto 2, he recovered from an average opening lap to salvage ninth, which placed him eighth for the weekend, and PB currently holds seventh in the title race.
    Pierce Brown:   "It was another mediocre day on paper, but we made some steps forward, riding-wise. In the first moto I ended up sixth, then second moto I was near last and came back to ninth. It felt good, but obviously not where we need to be, and we need a start. I feel like everything else is coming together, so I'm excited to see what we can do at High Point next week."
    Colorado was a frustrating round of sorts for Ryder DiFrancesco, caught up in a multi-rider crash through the first turn in the opening encounter, but battling back to 18th place. He improved to run inside the top 10 during Moto 2, although dropped further down the order in the closing laps and finished 14th. As a result, he was 15th overall in Round 3 of the Pro Motocross season.
    Ryder DiFrancesco:  "This weekend was okay. I fell in the first turn of Moto 1 and came back to 18th, and then in the second moto I got a better start, ran eighth for around 20 minutes, and then went backward from there. It was better than Hangtown, so we'll keep improving and get ready for next weekend."
    Next Race:  June 15 – High Point, Pennsylvania

    TOP-10 FINISH FOR DANIEL SANDERS AND RED BULL GASGAS FACTORY RACING AT 2024 DESAFIO RUTA 40

    View Profile
    And that’s it for the 2024 edition of the Desafio Ruta 40! After five long days and 3,200 kilometers of riding, Daniel Sanders has successfully finished the rally safe and sound in ninth place overall. Closing out the week with a short sprint finish for today’s stage five, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing rider posted the 11th fastest time on his RX 450F. Well done, Chucky, that was a solid effort!
    • Daniel Sanders successfully completes the 2024 Desafio Ruta 40
    • Chucky earns ninth overall at the Argentinian rally
    • Daniel and his RX 450F cover a huge 3,200 kilometers over five days
    The fifth and final stage of this year’s Desafio Ruta 40 saw Daniel head from La Rioja to the finish line in Cordoba, racing just 218 kilometers against the clock. Feeling good on the bike, the Aussie settled into the 100% gravel terrain and made it to the end of the stage in 11th place, securing ninth overall in the final standings. From Daniel’s impressive fourth-place stage result to Sam Sunderland’s unfortunate early departure, it’s certainly been a journey for the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team this week. Daniel Sanders:  “So that’s day five over and we’re done. It’s not an ideal result of course, but I’m happy to have got to the finish and we have certainly learned a lot. I’ve put in a lot of work the last two months training at home, so I feel like I came here fully prepared. Unfortunately, I couldn’t quite get the most out of this week, but we will continue to work hard and I’m looking forward to going racing again!” Andreas Hölzl – Rally Team Manager:  “It’s been a difficult week for us, but we are happy that Daniel made it safely to the finish line and secured a pretty solid result after everything. However, we’re now turning our focus completely to the Rallye du Maroc and Dakar. We will continue to work hard as a team and get back to where we know we need to be.” Provisional Results: Desafio Ruta 40 2024, stage 5

    DANIEL SANDERS OVERCOMES TOUGH PENULTIMATE STAGE OF DESAFIO RUTA 40

    View Profile
    Day four of the Desafio Ruta 40 proved to be a serious test for all, but Daniel Sanders remained unfazed and got on with the job at hand! The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing rider delivered a solid ride on the 391-kilometer timed special to ultimately finish 11th after receiving a six-minute penalty for speeding. However, Daniel’s consistency has paid off and he maintains his eighth place in the overall standings with one stage left to race.
    • 11th place for Daniel Sanders on technical stage four
    • Chucky remains eighth in overall standings
    • Just one day left to race at the 2024 Desafio Ruta 40
    Setting off on the mammoth 657-kilometer stage to La Rioja in fourth place thanks to his impressive stage three result, Daniel welcomed a change in terrain from previous days. Making up time as the day went on, the Aussie found his rhythm on his RX 450F and enjoyed a relatively straightforward day.  Initially posting the seventh-fastest time, a six-minute speeding penalty forced Chucky into 11th place. With one day left to contest, Daniel keeps his spot in eighth overall. Let’s fight to the finish!   Daniel Sanders: “Today was a really interesting day, the terrain this morning was all sand which I’m normally quite comfortable with but I couldn’t get the speed initially. Also, the cold temperatures caused a lot of mist which made everything that little bit more difficult. I survived though, pushed on as much as I could and tried not to lose too much time. The last half of the stage was completely different and a lot faster. A long day on the bike overall, but I enjoyed it and I’m ready to take on the last day tomorrow.” Provisional Results: Desafio Ruta 40 2024, stage 4

    TOP-FOUR RESULT FOR DANIEL SANDERS ON THIRD STAGE OF DESAFIO RUTA 40

    View Profile
    Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Daniel Sanders came out swinging today, steering his RX 450F home as fourth-fastest and securing his highest finish of the rally so far. Two-time Dakar Rally Champion Sam Sunderland unfortunately retired from today's stage three, at kilometer 192. Now three stages into the Desafio Ruta 40, Chucky’s impressive result sees him climb up to eighth in the provisional overall standings.
    • Daniel Sanders lies eighth overall after top-four stage result
    • Sunderland unfortunately retires mid-stage
    • We’re over halfway through the 2024 Desafio Ruta 40
    After testing the waters on the opening stages of the Desafio Ruta 40, Daniel Sanders certainly kicked things up a notch today! The Aussie tackled stage three’s 341 kilometers of rugged, off-piste tracks and challenging navigation with skill and precision, claiming his highest finish at the 2024 edition of the Argentinian rally so far. Posting the fourth-fastest time, Daniel is fired-up for the remaining two stages! Daniel Sanders:  “It’s been really cool to come back to San Juan, the last time I was here was for my first ISDE in 2014. Although it’s familiar territory, it’s a lot faster than on the enduro bike I can say that! The change in terrain today really worked well with my riding style and I was able to work with the bike a lot better. I had a lot of fun out there and I rode well, but I know we still have some time to make up. I’m learning constantly with the team and this will help us know where to improve going forward. There were a couple of tricky spots of navigation but overall I’ve had a great day, so I’m hoping for more of the same tomorrow!” Provisional Results: Desafio Ruta 40 2024, stage 3

    Red Bull GASGAS Factory MX2 rider, Marc-Antoine Rossi, will have to put his 2024 MX2 plans temporarily on ice, following a  ACL injury to his left knee sustained at the MXGP of Germany.
    • Marc-Antoine Rossi injured his left knee during Saturday’s running of the 2024 MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal, on the 1st of June.
    • Post race medical checks revealed that Rossi had fractured his ACL and external meniscus, and Rossi will now undergo surgery on the 13th June, in Lyon, France.
    • Due to the severity of the injury Rossi will be forced to sit out the remainder of the 2024 MX2 season in order to recover.
    Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing MX2 racer, Marc-Antoine Rossi, will unfortunately be forced to sit out the remainder of the 2024 season due to a knee injury sustained during Saturday’s running of the 2024 MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal. Following medical examination after the race weekend, it was confirmed that Rossi sustained a fracture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and external meniscus in his left knee. Rossi is now scheduled to undergo surgery on June 13th in Lyon, France.  A clearer timeframe for Rossi’s return to racing will follow after the surgery. However, due to the severity of the injury, as well as the necessary treatment and recovery time, the 18 year old French racer will miss the remaining 13 MX2 events of the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship this season.  Everyone at Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing wishes Marc-Antoine a speedy recovery and looks forward to his return to racing at the earliest opportunity.
    Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager Davide De Carli: “It's a tough setback for Marc-Antoine for sure, but we are confident that he can bounce back from this injury even stronger than before. We will support him every step of the way during his recovery process."

    MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: "I'm deeply disappointed that my rookie year in MX2 has been cut short by one of the longest injuries a rider can face. It's incredibly tough to accept that my season is over already in early June. However, I'm determined to come back stronger and sooner than ever. I can't thank my team, my family, and everyone who supports me enough. I know I'll never walk this path alone!”

    SAM SUNDERLAND AND DANIEL SANDERS SAFELY THROUGH DESAFIO RUTA 40 STAGE TWO

    View Profile
    After a long day in the saddle at the Desafio Ruta 40, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Sam Sunderland and Daniel Sanders have successfully completed the second stage of the Argentinian rally. Sam equaled his opening day result by going eighth-fastest in the challenging timed special, whereas a couple of small mistakes proved costly for Chucky who placed 13th. On to stage three!
    • Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing duo easing into return to racing
    • Sunderland and Sanders rank eighth and 11th respectively in overall standings
    • Three days left to race at challenging 2024 edition of Desafio Ruta 40
    Making the most of his mid-pack start position, Sunderland got straight down to business, tackling the 600-kilometer stage that featured gravel tracks, vast salt pans, and sandy sections head first. Proving that consistency is key, the Brit maintained his pace from day one to bring his RX 450F home to another solid eighth-place finish. Not bad going after well over four hours of racing! The opening 150 kilometers of the second timed special presented riders with long, winding mountain tracks, making it tricky for Sanders to make up time against his rivals ahead. However, knowing that every stage result counts, Chucky got his head down and delivered a consistent ride to complete the stage in 13th place. The Aussie now looks ahead to Wednesday’s 341-kilometer special and is eager to climb up the leaderboard. Sam Sunderland:  “So that’s day two in the books! The terrain was a bit different to yesterday but a lot rougher, so I’m learning a lot and tried my best to give it my all. We’re a little off the pace at the minute and I’m working with the team to make those key small improvements and build my confidence as much as possible to make up some time. We will keep trying though and we go again tomorrow.” Daniel Sanders:  “It was a long day again here in Argentina. The terrain was pretty difficult with some gnarly long straights and I struggled to find my rhythm at first. I haven’t found the perfect setup for the terrain here yet, but the team and I are working on it together. Wednesday’s stage looks quite different though, so I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Provisional Results: Desafio Ruta 40 2024, stage 2

    POSITIVE START TO DESAFIO RUTA 40 FOR SUNDERLAND AND SANDERS

    View Profile
    And just like that, we’re back to rally action! Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing duo Sam Sunderland and Daniel Sanders came out swinging on stage one of the 2024 Desafio Ruta 40, securing a pair of top-10 results on a tough opening day. Sunderland brought his RX 450F home in eighth place, just under six minutes adrift of the stage winner with teammate Sanders less than a minute further back in ninth.
    • Sunderland and Sanders complete opening stage of Desafio Ruta 40
    • Both GASGAS rally racers feeling good after day one
    • Stage two promises a 423-kilometer special stage
    Faced with the unenviable task of opening the stage in Cordoba after his 17th place prologue result, Sunderland immediately got to work to deliver a mistake-free ride over the 381-kilometer special and ultimately posted the eighth-fastest time. Heading into stage two’s mammoth day in the saddle with 724 kilometers of liaison and timed special to complete tomorrow, the two-time Dakar champion currently lies in ninth overall. As the 12th fastest rider in yesterday’s prologue, Sanders took the opening stage in his stride today, skillfully navigating the tricky gravel terrain and lingering dust to bring himself home safely in ninth place. Chucky now sits in eighth overall, but he certainly has his eyes on the prize and will be looking to take advantage of his mid-pack start position tomorrow. Bring on stage two! Sam Sunderland:  “Opening the special is always a challenge but I’m quite happy with my day. I enjoyed the challenge but did lose a couple of minutes as a result. Opening for over 400 kilometers isn’t ideal and I came across plenty of animals too! All in all, though, I had a pretty good day and can hopefully up the pace tomorrow and find those improvements. I’m looking forward to it!” Daniel Sanders:  “Today was alright, unfortunately I got stuck in Sam’s dust all day and I couldn’t pass him, so it wasn’t the most comfortable to say the least. The roads were really slippery too and there were so many turns. I couldn’t even keep count! Today was really hard on the tires, so it got pretty loose by the last few tracks and I had to cruise to the end. Hopefully the terrain tomorrow will be a bit different and we’ll see how it goes!” Provisional Results: Desafio Ruta 40 2024, stage 1

    Solid 5th for GASGAS and Acosta at Mugello MotoGP™

    View Profile
    More Mugello memories for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s Pedro Acosta! The 2024 MotoGP rookie sensation rides his GASGAS RC16 to the top five for the Italian Grand Prix and round seven of the current season in front of busy spectator areas and in sunny conditions in Tuscany.
    • In the wake of his third Sprint podium on Saturday, Acosta completes a mature and impressive performance in his maiden MotoGP outing at Mugello and obtains 11 points after the 23 laps
    • Augusto Fernandez has to pull out of the race after just four laps
    • A close and thrilling Moto3™ dash sees both Jacob Roulstone and Daniel Holgado vie for maximum points in the group and score 9th and 14th respectively
    The red light disappeared and red GASGAS race machinery thundered into life as the Italian Grand Prix staged another scorching and strategic show at Mugello. Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez both had their personal goals for the seventh round of MotoGP and following the Saturday Sprint where Pedro was able to polish his third podium medal of the season. Acosta started swiftly and moved into the top five but didn’t have the final tenths of a second per lap to close to the podium fight. The rookie conserved rubber and maintained his pace to bag points and take the maximum plunder from the day. He has moved up to 5th in the championship standings as a result. Augusto Fernandez’s race lasted for five laps before he had to pull into the pitlane with a technical issue. After back-to-back events, MotoGP now has an official one-day test at Mugello on Monday and then enters a three-weekend hiatus before charging into another ‘double’. The action starts again with the Dutch Grand Prix at TT Circuit Assen in late June. Pedro Acosta, 5th: “Well, a tough race because we were missing a bit from the beginning but this was also the maximum we could take today. It was important to take points after two crashes recently and also information for the test tomorrow, as well as more learning in warm conditions for the summer races to come. For all this we have to say we are happy….but we are not! We’ll keep on trying to work like this because it feels like we are getting closer.” Augusto Fernandez, DNF : “A shame to finish the race so early but we broke the rear fender and these things can happen. We couldn’t try the things we wanted to in the race. My start was good but the end came too quick. We have the test to try again tomorrow. It’s a tough moment but we need to keep working and fighting. There are still a lot of races ahead.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “Today feels a bit like mission accomplished for the team. Pedro gave his maximum, and we feel it was the best we could achieve. We have to be proud of our weekend: it was quite strong with a podium in the Sprint and top five on Sunday at a difficult racetrack and we’re also up to 5th in the championship now. On Augusto’s side he was really unlucky. We need to understand why he had this issue because we’ve never seen it before! The positive point was that he was happy with his pace up until then and it was the first time this weekend he felt some improvement. So, we need to continue in this way.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Italy   1. Francesco Bagnaia (ITA) Ducati 40:51.385 2. Enea Bastianini (ITA) Ducati +0.799 3. Jorge Martin (ESP) Ducati +0.924 5.

Daniel Holgado and Jacob Roulstone were firmly in the fray after lurching into battle from 5th and 7th positions on the start grid and then restarted from P7 and P9. Holgado’s hot line into the opening corner (at the second time of asking) led to a double Long Lap penalty. Roulstone topped the second group, and the pursuit of 7th, and the Australian eventually took 9th. Holgado made it home in 14th for 2 points. After starting the day 14 points away from the championship leader, Holgado is now 37 adrift but a solid P2 in the standings. Roulstone has improved to 10th and the team are ranked 2nd. Jacob Roulstone, 9th : “I’m quite happy with another top ten but I am also annoyed at myself for making the decision to run the medium tire. We’re learning! Pleased to be able to get my elbows out a bit more in the first laps but it was a shame that I was struggling with the grip when I opened the gas and lost the front group. A lot of positives though and more education here. The team did an awesome job and I’m already excited for Assen which is a track I’ve ridden before.” Daniel Holgado, 14th : “A difficult day after the double Long Lap but we were able to save a few points. We have a few weeks now before Assen, so hard training for the next race. Thanks to the team for their amazing work.”   Results Moto3 Grand Prix of Italy   1. David Alonso (COL) CFMOTO 21:17.796 2.

The reigning champ dominated from the start, battling bar-to-bar with rival Glenn Coldenhoff and taking the lead in the first moto, maintaining it throughout the 18-lap race. This victory set the tone for the day. Improved conditions in the second moto further played into Prado’s hands. Known as the "King of the Holeshot," Prado scored his ninth holeshot of the season, leading from the start with a full-gas wheelie. He expertly managed the race, holding off intense pressure from Jeffrey Herlings and Tim Gajser to cross the finish line four seconds ahead. With back-to-back victories at Teutschenthal, Prado not only claimed the overall win at the MXGP of Germany but also regained the prestigious red plate, symbolizing his position as the championship leader. This result marks his sixth overall win from eight rounds and his tenth race win of the season. Prado made it all look incredibly easy, even when it wasn't. In MX2, home favorite Simon Längenfelder flew the flag solo for the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team, with teammate Marc-Antoine Rossi sidelined on Sunday due to a knee injury. Nevertheless, Längenfelder delighted his home-race fans with an MX masterclass. After finishing second in qualifying, Simon fought hard in the first moto, battling the extreme track ruts and competitors. By lap 6, he had taken the lead, showing incredible control. Despite slipping to third by lap 10, he maintained this position, finishing a significant 54 seconds ahead of Andrea Adamo. In the second race, Simon grabbed the Fox Holeshot right out of the gate, thrilling the cheering fans. He battled fiercely with top competitors, including de Wolf and Adamo, reclaiming third place by lap 7. A thrilling bar-to-bar fight with Lucas Coenen saw Längenfelder finish third, marking his first visit to the world championship podium since round 4 in Trentino. Looking Ahead: the 2024 MXGP of Germany marked the first in a series of three consecutive race weekends. Next up is the MXGP of Latvia at the hard sand of the Kegums circuit on June 9th. Stay tuned! MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “It was a perfect weekend. I felt great all weekend long – the bike was great, and I enjoyed the track. We had so much rain on Saturday that track conditions were actually quite tough. It was easy to make mistakes; Tim and Jeffrey were always right behind me, so I couldn't afford any errors. I worked on my starts and just tried to push to the end of the race. I’m super happy and want to give a big thank you to the whole Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team. The championship lead is back, and the red plate is back! Latvia next – let’s get some good sand riding done there!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “Home GPs can always be challenging, but this was a good one for sure! I wanted to be higher up – but I’ll take two thirds! The crowd was amazing, and I enjoyed every single lap. To be honest, every single lap the crowds were cheering, and I could hear it above the engine noise on my bike! In the later stages of race two, I was fighting with Kay – he overtook me, but I managed to stay close. He made a few mistakes too, so I just kept chasing. It’s great to be on the podium at home. The track was great after so much rain, and I’m feeling very good – so I’m looking forward to Latvia now.” MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: "It seems that bad luck just won't leave me alone this year, unfortunately! I woke up on Saturday morning full of energy and good vibes, but during the qualifying race, I had a crash and injured my left knee. After consulting with the team, we decided it was best for me to sit out Sunday's race. Tomorrow, I'll undergo medical checks in France. Fingers crossed, I hope to be back on the track as soon as possible.” MXGP of Germany Results: MXGP – Overall

    PIERCE BROWN BATTLES TO SEASON-BEST WITH P6 OVERALL IN 250MX AT HANGTOWN

    View Profile
    A top-five moto score and sixth overall in 250MX signaled a step forward for Pierce Brown at today's Hangtown Motocross Classic, the second round of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship. And for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing teammate Justin Barcia, seventh overall in the 450MX Class was another sign of consistency.
    • PB takes confidence from finishing fifth in opening 250MX moto
    • Second moto improvements in Hangtown conditions evident for Barcia
    • More testing planned as Bam Bam gets back down to business
    Brown finished a low-key eighth overall at Pala's first round of the season one week ago, but was better from the outset at the historic Prairie City venue to qualify in P7. Moto 1 saw him ride his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition to fifth position, and then he wrapped up the weekend with a 10th-place ride in Moto 2, which resulted in P6 overall for the weekend. He has moved forward to seventh in the championship.
    Pierce Brown:   "Today was better than the first round with sixth overall and we made some improvements that I'm happy about. I think we're in a good spot, trending in the right direction, and I'm excited for Colorado next week."
    Hangtown was an opportunity for Ryder DiFrancesco to gain added experience in 250MX, beginning with ninth in qualifying, and then registering 14-18 finishes for 15th overall. He will be determined to turn things around results-wise in Colorado next weekend, currently 13th in the points following Round 2 of 11.
    Ryder DiFrancesco:   "It was a better weekend with two good qualifying sessions this morning. We had two good starts, but I just didn't have the speed to run up front, so made it hard on myself. I'm looking forward to Thunder Valley."
    After finishing fifth at the opener, Barcia came into Hangtown with confidence on his side and qualified his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition in position nine. He gradually made improvements from there, placing eighth in a chaotic first moto, and then going another position better for P7 in Moto 2 for seventh overall. Those results have him ranked eighth in the standings in these early stages of the outdoors.
    Justin Barcia:   "Hangtown was a challenging day, for sure. I felt okay in the first practice when it was a little bit smoother, but then second practice I struggled a little. We made a change for the first moto and it wasn't what I needed, before in Moto 2 we made a good step and it was a lot better. Hopefully we can do some testing this week to improve a little bit, because we haven't been able to ride too much, so it will be good to get on track and catch up a little bit. All-in-all, not the results we want, but we will definitely keep at it, never give up, and the results should be coming soon."

    GASGAS ADDS TWO HIGH-REVVING 2-STROKES TO 2025 MOTOCROSS LINE!

    View Profile
    One year on from launching an all-new generation of motocross and cross country bikes, GASGAS is spicing things up once again with a revitalized line-up that includes two new 2-stroke models for 2025! Existing bikes across both ranges now feature revised frames, motor mounts, swingarms, suspension settings, and linkages to make sure each one is even more fun to ride! Check them out online or at your nearest GASGAS dealer from July 2024!
    • New and improved GASGAS dirt bikes revealed for 2025
    • Huge choice of models means there’s something for everyone
    • Check out the motocross and cross country bikes this July at a dealer near you
    You asked for them and we've produced them. That’s right 2-stroke fans, we’ve introduced an MC 150 and an MC 300 to our motocross line-up! By expanding our range, we really do have a bike for everyone now. From beginner to pro, and every rider in between. The little MC 150 uses the foundations of our super-popular MC 125 but takes power, and more importantly, torque, to a crazy new level for such a small capacity dirt bike.

    And the same can be said for the MC 300, which is based on our versatile MC 250. Offering up plenty of power, it’ll be the super useable torque curve that 2-stroke fanatics worldwide are going to love most about the MC 300! Both bikes are built using the same high-quality components you’ll find on all our motocross and cross-country models for 2025. Such as the revised frame design...

    Our engineers have removed a little material around the upper shock mount as well as reducing the thickness of the frame at the front. In addition to saving 300g, what’s more important is that these revisions were made to significantly improve handling, especially when entering corners, without sacrificing any straight-line stability. New motor mounts further refine the frame’s flex characteristics with revised suspension settings introduced to complement the chassis changes and help elevate the riding experience.

    A stronger air intake sleeve prevents flex to maintain maximum airflow. At the rear of each bike, the swingarm is updated to enhance the durability of the chain slider, which is made from a more hard-wearing material to boost longevity. Want more? Well, the linkage is now put together with new, lower friction SKF seals to help the WP rear shock perform just that little bit better. Plus, there’s also a smaller linkage bolt to reduce weight and to play a part in delivering the refined flex characteristics from the updated chassis.

    Every cross country model features all of the revisions above in addition to being assembled with a sprinkling of components exclusive to the range. An 18” rear wheel is wrapped with a DUNLOP AT81 tire that’s paired with a DUNLOP MX33 tire on the front, there’s a handy side stand, and for the 4-strokes, there’s a new PANKL transmission with ratios developed specifically for cross country style riding.

    You’ll find our motocross and cross country line-ups in dealerships from July 2024! Our awesome motocross bikes will be available worldwide while those in search of a new cross country bike can find them in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

    Acosta with a gutsy comeback to 13th at home MotoGP™ in Catalunya

    View Profile
    Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s Pedro Acosta showed class, speed and no shortage of balls to come back from a crash while fighting for the lead of the Gran Premi de Catalunya and secure points for 13th position today. Augusto Fernandez also fell at a hot and sunny Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya while surging to the top ten but could not rejoin what was round six of the 2024 campaign.
    • Pedro Acosta propels from 5th on the grid into an early duel for victory. A crash at Turn 10 did not deter the rookie from chasing back through the pack to reach the top 13.
    • Augusto Fernandez suffers a DNF while pushing for track space on the fringe of the top ten
    • Daniel Holgado rushes to 6th in a gripping Moto3™ race while teammate Jacob Roulstone scores 8th
    The sun burned brighter and the temperatures climbed further for the critical point of the Gran Premi De Catalunya on Sunday and round six of 2024 MotoGP. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 formed-up on the grid in 5th and 19th positions and with recently turned 20-year-old Pedro Acosta vibing after his Sprint podium finish on Saturday. Both riders were fully aware that the 24-lap Grand Prix posed a more difficult challenge compared to the 12-lap outing the previous day: the slick nature of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya asphalt pushing tire conservation to the fore. The search for optimum traction was key to podium prospects. As on Saturday, Acosta accelerated from the grid and into the leading pack from the disappearance of the red light on the grid. ‘Red’ was very much the theme as the GASGAS RC16 made bold moves and Pedro made his presence felt in the battle for silverware. Sadly, a front end slide into Turn 10 sent the #31 into the gravel. Acosta was able to pick-up his slightly damaged machine and throttled through the rest of the GP distance from last place to arrive at a creditable 13th and 3 championship points. In the chase for maximum bounty mid-pack, Augusto Fernandez was looking sharp around the outskirts of the top ten but then lost the bike into Turn 10 with 18 laps to go and was out of the running. MotoGP will now turn up the pace even further with the trip to the Autodromo de Mugello and the captivating climes of the Tuscan speedbowl track. The Gran Premio d’Italia will take place next weekend. Pedro Acosta, 13th: “First weekend that we have been constantly competitive. Really competitive. A small mistake at a tricky track but happy anyway. We were always at the front and at a place that is not our best circuit. Focused now for Mugello and for sure it will be a good weekend also.” Augusto Fernandez, DNF : “A shame to crash because I had a great start and I had the pace to make a real top ten result today. This was a big step for us and we have to take these small gains to keep the faith. We know we can do much better than where we are so the progress we are making is important. The crash was my fault but I don’t really understand why because I was managing the tire and was comfortable with the pace. We’ll try again in Mugello.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “The scenario was perfect for Pedro after he learned a lot from the Sprint yesterday and he rode smart today. He took a small risk with the tire choice but he was sure about it. He was confident and we could see he was fast on track but we know it is easy to crash here. It’s a big shame but let’s keep positive about the situation because he was fighting for the win. I’d like to thank him for his never-give-up attitude. 13th was a small reward for a great weekend. Augusto had decent pace but was also caught out by a crash. Anyway, a lot of positives from this Grand Prix and we’ll move now to Mugello.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Catalunya   1.

Augusto Fernandez (ESP) Red Bull GASGAS Tech3, 13   Moto3 Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 opened the first race of the day as strong participants thanks to the potential of both Daniel Holgado and Jacob Roulstone. The 18-lap Grand Prix drew 15 riders together into the front-running group and both the Spaniard and the Australian were forceful members of the posse. Position swapping, strategy, racecraft and tire conservation were key ingredients for most of the race distance and into the crucial final two-lap chase. Holgado made his move when it counted but missed the final tenths of pace as the race wound down. He made sure of 6th at the finish as Rookie Roulstone bagged points for the sixth race in a row with a very decent performance to 8th. Holgado is now P2 in the standings but just 14 points divide him and David Alonso. Roulstone is 12th and GASGAS are the 2nd best constructor with a quarter of the 2024 calendar now in the books. Daniel Holgado, 6th : “Today was a good race but the last laps were difficult for me because the grip was quite different compared to the other days here. I gave my maximum and that’s why I’m happy. Now I need to stay focused for next week in Mugello.” Jacob Roulstone, 8th : “Overall I’m very happy with the race. It wasn’t perfect but pleased with the way I rode. I knew I had to be aggressive off the start – that was something to improve – and I did that. It was a shame just to be tenth of a second from that front group. I kept my focus and the tires working well and to lead that second group. I still have some small things to do better but it was a good weekend.”   Results Moto3 Grand Prix of Catalunya   1.

    STRONG START OUTDOORS FOR TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING TEAM

    View Profile
    A top-five result in 450MX for Justin Barcia was an inspired way to drop the gates on the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Pala, California, on Saturday, as 250MX teammates Ryder DiFrancesco and Pierce Brown found themselves inside the top 10 at the conclusion of Round 1.
    • Bam Bam lands fifth overall as we take things outdoors!
    • Pierce Brown and Ryder DiFrancesco race to top 10 finishes
    • Time to keep pushing with the first round in the books
    Barcia was in form from the outset to open the outdoors, fourth fastest in the opening qualifier and then slotting into P7 on combined times. He rode his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition to sixth in both motos, rewarded with fifth overall and a strong haul of points following the first round of 11.
    Justin Barcia:   "Had a good qualifying practice, fourth in the first one and seventh overall, so we had a good gate pick for the races. First moto, I got off to a good start and it was a good one. Second moto, also got off to a good start and was about to have a holeshot but was bumped from behind, so that cost me a few positions. I fought really hard, charged the whole moto, and I have a lot of building to do still. It's going to be a long season, the bike was really good today, and I'm looking forward to more."
    The 250MX Class also produced encouraging results this weekend, with Brown qualifying third and then going 10-8 for eighth overall on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. DiFrancesco was consistent across both motos, recording 9-12 finishes and 10th for the round.
    Pierce Brown:   "It was a decent day with 10-8 results for eighth overall. It's somewhere to start and we know where to build from now, so I'm excited to start building some momentum from here."
    Ryder DiFrancesco:   "Round 1 was good for me at Pala. The first moto was good and the second one was okay as well, but all-in-all I'm satisfied with 10th overall. It was better than last year, but I've got a couple of things to work on with 10 more rounds to go!"

    TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING TAKING THINGS OUTDOORS WITH A THREE-RIDER LINEUP IN AMA PRO MOTOCROSS

    View Profile
    It's go time! A RED-hot Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team is set to line up in the opening round of the 2024 AMA Pro Motocross Championship this Saturday, May 25, in Pala, California with the same rider lineup of Justin Barcia, Pierce Brown, and Ryder DiFrancesco but under new management. The team welcomes Frank Latham as Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager for the summer as former manager, Max Lee, steps away after nearly two seasons with the squad.
    • Welcome Frank Latham as incoming Team Manager for Pro Motocross
    • Bam Bam bringing form into the great outdoors in 2024!
    • 250MX combo of PB and Ryder D to feature at the front of the pack
    Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing expresses its thanks to Max Lee for his time as Team Manager over the course of the past couple of seasons and wishes him success as he embarks on a new path.
    Max Lee:   “It’s been an honor to work with the entire Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team these last two seasons. I truly appreciate this amazing experience and the opportunity to live this dream. It’s bittersweet leaving as I’m going to miss the races and working with such an incredible team but I am very excited to start this next chapter of my career. I wish the team the best of luck this outdoor season and I’d like to give a special thanks to Roger De Coster and John Hinz for their help and guidance. I know Frank Latham will do an outstanding job, as he brings with him years of experience validated with his team relationships and rider results. All the best to everyone at Troy Lee Designs, GASGAS and the KTM Group. On to the next.”
    The team is excited to now officially welcome Frank Latham – the highly-regarded former title-winning mechanic and factory team coordinator within the group for over a decade – as incoming GASGAS Team Manager for the summer, and it comes as a significant opportunity in his respected career that he has embraced with open arms.
    Frank Latham, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:   "I'm excited for the new opportunity and new venture. By moving into this new role I hope I can make an impact, along with the team and the riders. I am very grateful that Troy [Lee] and the KTM Group are giving me this opportunity, the interest they've shown, and the support given to me in moving over to the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team. I am eager for the outdoor rounds to start and am excited to see how the season develops."
    On track, Barcia already has four 450MX overall victory trophies in his cabinet, but was denied the opportunity to chase more one year ago when his season ended through injury only three rounds in. This time around, his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition is dialed for the motocross season ahead and he too has form on his side, which he is wanting to make count when the points are paid on Saturday afternoons.
    Justin Barcia:   "Supercross was definitely one of my more challenging seasons I have experienced so far, but our focus was to show up at every round with a goal to improve and build with every race. I feel towards the end of the season we made great strides, and we ended in a good spot walking away with a podium in San Diego and landing outside the podium at the last four rounds. I really enjoy outdoors and always have a lot of fun with the variety of tracks and conditions that Pro Motocross brings. I obviously didn’t get to start the outdoor season last year, so I am excited to go out there and have a lot of fun and have a strong season."
    As for Brown, there was no denying that he had speed to burn during the recent AMA Supercross Championship season on his way to P4 in 250SX East, and now he's aiming to turn that potential into podiums outdoors. The 21-year-old is yet to stand on an overall podium in Pro Motocross, but is in line to change that narrative onboard his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition when the gates drop on the new year.
    Pierce Brown:  "All in all, Supercross went well. I would have liked to have the last couple rounds better, but it is what is – stuff happens – and we learned a lot from the end of Supercross. Moving into outdoor season, we have been testing a lot this past week and got the bike in a really good spot, so we are going to put some more motos in this week and I’m excited to get things rolling at Pala."
    Teammate Ryder D's first full attempt in 250MX one year ago was full of promise, racing to 10th in the point standings and learning the ropes of racing outdoors as a professional. The decorated multi-time AMA Amateur National Motocross Champion is still only aged 19, but it's clear that he has what it takes to do battle with the best 250 Class competitors in the nation and he's primed to debut outdoors with GASGAS.
    Ryder DiFrancesco:   "My rookie season was a learning experience. I had some good rides and speed, but never put it all together. I’m glad I finished every race, and it was a huge building block. I’m excited going into outdoors already having a full season under my belt, since it gives me more confidence already knowing what to expect."

    RED BULL GASGAS FACTORY RACING FIRED-UP FOR DESAFIO RUTA 40

    View Profile
    They’re back and ready to rip! Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland and Daniel Sanders are ready to return to rally action at the Desafio Ruta 40. The duo have spent the months since January’s Dakar Rally training hard and fine-tuning their bikes to prepare for their upcoming visit to Argentina.
    • Sunderland and Sanders set to take on Desafio Ruta 40
    • Both riders fit after successful training and testing
    • Prologue and five stages cover over 3,200km
    Arriving in Argentina fighting fit after a long, four-month break from racing, both Sam and Daniel are motivated to secure positive results for the team. The duo last raced back in January at the Dakar Rally, where Daniel secured an eighth-place finish and Sam was forced to withdraw. Last year’s edition of the Desafio Ruta 40 saw both RX 450F riders sidelined, so the team are raring to bounce back this year.

    RED BULL GASGAS RACES TO CRUCIAL MXGP AND MX2 POINTS IN FRANCE

    View Profile
    The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team battled through an intense weekend at the 2024 MXGP of France, securing crucial championship points and P4 finishes in both MX2 and MXGP despite facing thunder, deep mud, and crashes. Held at the iconic St. Jean d’Angely, a circuit steeped in motocross history, the 1620m hard pack venue carved into the picturesque French hillside provided the perfect battleground for Red Bull GASGAS riders to go bar-to-bar with their rivals.
    • Jorge Prado secured P4 overall with a 2nd place in the first moto and 5th in the second moto.
    • Simon Längenfelder's finished 4th in the first moto and 3rd in the second, just two weeks after breaking his collarbone at the MXGP of Portugal.
    • Marc-Antoine Rossi qualified 2nd and fought hard in race one, but eventually retired from the weekend, due to illness, aiming for a strong return at the MXGP of Germany.
    The weekend began with a mud fest on Friday and Saturday due to relentless rain during qualifying. However, a dry night leading into Sunday allowed the hard pack surface to dry slightly. Sunday morning greeted riders with a 19°C air temperature, only for heavy rain to return in the late afternoon for the MXGP finale. Jorge Prado demonstrated why he is a force to be reckoned with in the MXGP class, even during a challenging weekend. In the opening moto, Jorge had a solid start, holding 3rd place despite the slippery conditions. His consistent and fast laps saw him close the gap with the leaders, overtaking Romain Febvre on lap 16 to finish 2nd, just behind Tim Gajser. The second moto presented even more challenging conditions with heavy rainstorms. Jorge had an unusually slow start, initially placing 7th. Despite the adverse weather, he maintained his composure, finishing 5th and capitalizing on Gajser's crash on lap 12, keeping his championship hopes alive. A post-race shuffle of the results, due to rivals being penalized for flag infringements, promoted Jorge to P4 in the overall classification. Simon Längenfelder displayed incredible skill and tenacity throughout the weekend, despite recovering from a broken collarbone surgery just two weeks prior. After a challenging start in the first moto, Simon quickly moved up to 5th by lap 3. His relentless push continued, reaching 4th place by lap 11. A spectacular overtake on Mikkel Haarup on lap 14 put him in 3rd, but he ultimately finished 4th after a late slip behind championship leader Kay de Wolf. In the second moto, Simon started strong, climbing to 3rd by lap 2. Despite darkening skies and intensifying rain, he maintained his pace, regaining 3rd position on lap 16 amidst thunderous conditions, showcasing his ability to perform under pressure and finishing strong in 3rd place. Unfortunately for Marc-Antoine Rossi, illness and flu plagued his home Grand Prix. Despite qualifying 2nd, he struggled with a challenging start in the first moto, dropping to 17th by lap 3. He fought back valiantly to 10th by lap 6 but suffered a crash, eventually retiring on lap 9. Opting to sit out the second moto due to battling sickness, Marc-Antoine is eyeing a strong return at the MXGP of Germany in two weeks' time. Next up is the MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal on the 2nd June. MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “The GP of France is done—it went okay overall, finishing P4. When conditions were dry, I was very fast. I had a very nice first moto, although I didn't have the best feeling in the first 15 minutes. But in the second half of the race, I felt my pace got better and better. By the end of the race, I managed to pass [Romain] Febvre and got close to [Tim] Gajser, so I was on it! The second moto felt like we were just racing over water for the whole lap, which was a pity. We still managed to finish in a decent position, only dropping five points from the leader in the championship. Hopefully, we can get back the red plate at Teutschenthal—I’m looking forward to that!”
    MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “On Saturday, I didn't have the best start out of the gates, and then I had some issues with my goggles, so it was quite a challenge. I just tried to ride in total control, and I finished seventh. On Sunday, I was really motivated and wanted to do better for sure. I think with a fourth and a third, we achieved this. The second start was better than the first moto, so I think I can be happy. It’s important to remember my collarbone was broken two weeks ago—so normally this would be my first race back after such an injury. I’m happy with how it went and to take the points. Now we have one week to get ready for Germany—my home GP—which I’m really looking forward to!” MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: “It was my home GP, and I was super motivated to do well, but bad luck seems to follow me. I like riding on hard pack and was confident I could stay in the top five this weekend. Unfortunately, I’ve been sick since Friday night with the flu, fever, and had no energy. I fought hard and gave it my all in the qualifying race; finishing P2. I rested all night, but I felt worse this morning and had to skip the warm-up. I tried to line up for Race 1, but after starting in the top 10, I crashed and decided to stop. It was impossible to continue. I’m sorry to everyone who supported me. I will come back stronger as soon as possible!” MXGP of France Results: MXGP – Overall

    SONDRE HAGA SECURES HISTORIC TRIAL2 WIN ON GASGAS TXE GP

    View Profile
    What a ride! Making an incredible start to his 2024 season, Sondre Haga rode his GASGAS TXE GP to victory in Trial2 on day one of the TrialGP of Japan – the first time an electric bike has topped the class. The result was the highlight of a weekend of mixed fortunes for GASGAS Factory Racing, which saw a technical issue affect both Jaime Busto and Jack Dance. Despite the untimely setback, the boys kept on fighting, giving their all throughout the weekend.
    • Sondre Haga tops Trial2 on opening day on electric TXE GP
    • Jaime Busto and Jack Dance faced with technical issue on day one
    • Jack Dance narrowly misses out on Trial2 podium on day two
    The Mobility Resort Motegi offered the perfect stage for the opening round of the 2024 TrialGP season, with a challenging weekend promised for the world’s best trials riders. The course presented competitors with super-steep climbs and descents and a mixture of boulders and natural rocky sections. Despite heading into the weekend super-motivated, an early technical issue on day one put Jaime Busto on the back foot. Forced to take fives on all but one section on the first lap, Jaime fought back on lap two to claw his way back to ninth and earn himself seven valuable championship points. Heading out first in each section on day two, Jaime had a huge challenge ahead of him to secure a positive result after his tough opening day. However, he showcased his experience and skill to tackle the difficult course and bring home his TXT GP 300 in seventh place. With six rounds left to race, Busto lies seventh overall in the TrialGP standings. Trial2 was an incredibly competitive category at Motegi, with low scores across the board on both days. Sondre Haga remained unfazed, completing two near-faultless laps to take a convincing win on day one, writing his name in the history books as the first winner at this level to win on an electric motorcycle. Jack Dance was unfortunately sidelined due to a technical issue. Dance made an epic comeback on day two, putting in an impressive ride to finish in fourth place, tied on points with third. Sondre delivered another positive result to finish just behind his teammate in fifth. The results were so close, only two points separated second to fifth place in the ultra-competitive category. Haga now lies fourth overall in the standings after round one, with Dance in ninth. The 2024 FIM TrialGP World Championship continues with round two in Andorra’s Sant Julia de Loria on June 7-9. Jaime Busto:  “It’s been a difficult weekend for me, but I’m already looking ahead and excited for round two. We had some problems with myself and the bike yesterday, so I tried my best today to get a better result for the team. It’s not the way we wanted to start the season, but we’re all really motivated now to come back even stronger in Andorra and get back on top.” Sondre Haga:  “Day one was incredible, I felt really good all day and made barely any mistakes. It’s amazing to come here and take the win after so much work so I am really, really happy! Fifth place for day two is frustrating because we were so close to the podium all day. But overall, I’m really happy with this weekend and it gives me a lot of confidence that we’re fighting for the championship already. We will keep pushing from here and hopefully stay on top for the rest of the season.” Jack Dance:  “Unfortunately, Saturday wasn’t the best day for me. We had a bit of an issue which was a shame, but I felt really motivated for day two to get a good result under my belt. I had a hugely better day and I was really happy with my riding. I got some fives unfortunately, which left me drawn for points with third place and just edged me out of a podium finish. It’s a pretty good start to the season though overall and I’m excited for the next round.” Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager:  “It’s been a tough weekend overall. Jaime really pushed hard today, but it wasn’t easy as he was starting first all day after an unfortunate day one. The day didn’t start as well as we would have liked, but we tried to encourage Jaime as much as possible. We need to move on from this weekend and look to come back stronger for the rest of the season. Apart from that, the guys in Trial2 did a superb job with Sondre’s win yesterday, especially as it was the first electric bike to win, it was a dream come true. It’s a pity they didn’t get a podium today being so close on points, but they’ve had a brilliant weekend. Now we’re focussing on Andorra and getting back to the top.” Results: TrialGP of Japan TrialGP – day 1

      PRADO POWERS TO VICTORY AT MXGP OF GALICIA, AS LÄNGENFELDER, ROSSI, AND JUNIOR TALENTS SHINE

      View Profile
      Jorge Prado dominated the MXGP of Galicia with three wins, reclaiming the championship lead, while Simon Längenfelder and Marc-Antoine Rossi fought through injuries for vital points, and EMX250 riders Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe impressed in their MX2 wildcard entries.
      • Jorge Prado dominated the MXGP of Galicia, winning all three races and reclaiming the championship lead with the red plate, marking his seventh win and 43rd career victory.
      • Simon Längenfelder and Marc-Antoine Rossi both battled injury and the odds to finish 9th and 14th, respectively, and secure vital championship points.
      • Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe stepped up from EMX250 to MX2 for wildcard entries at the MXGP of Galicia
      Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Jorge Prado delivered an epic home masterclass at the MXGP of Galicia this weekend, securing three wins from three races. Not only did Prado’s scorching pace propel him to the top step of the podium in front of his home fans, but it put him back on top of the championship standings; reclaiming the coveted red plate. In front of a packed home crowd, who lined every part of the 1550m track in North Western Spain, Prado started the weekend with a commanding pole position in qualifying, setting the tone for what would be a historic home GP domination. He secured his 8th Fox Holeshot of the season and led every lap of the first moto, establishing a significant lead over his closest rival, Romain Febvre, by the final flag. As the race day progressed from a wetter morning to a sunny afternoon, which saw the dark soil surface dry out, Jorge continued to leave his rivals in the dust. Despite a slight glitch with the start gate system at the start of race two - which necessitated a total race restart - Prado kept his cool. By the second lap, Prado was flying again, treating fans to an intense battle with rival Calvin Vlaanderen, as well as a bar-to-bar battle with Tim Gajser. In the end, Prado won out in trademark style, taking the chequered flag by a 2.8-second margin. The result marks Prado’s seventh win - his 43rd career victory so far - and places him once again in P1 in the standings by a 2-point margin over rival Tim Gajser. In MX2, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing boasted a bumper lineup of riders for the Galician round; with Simon Längenfelder and the freshly recovered Marc-Antoine Rossi, joined by GASGAS Junior riders Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe as wildcard entries.  Längenfelder, in particular, rolled into Lugo just six days after having surgery to fix a broken collarbone, which he picked up at the MXGP of Portugal. Despite this, Längenfelder went on to take 7th and 9th in both motos, bagging a solid 26 points to keep his championship hopes alive. Teammate Marc-Antoine Rossi was also battling back from injury, having been forced to sit out last weekend’s Portuguese round due to an injury sustained at the MXGP of Trentino. After qualifying 10th on Saturday, Rossi scored a tenth-place finish in the first moto, and then unfortunately retired in the second moto due to a riding error while running in 6th place, placing him 14th overall in the final classification. If all that wasn’t enough, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Junior riders Valerio Lata and Mads Fredsoe, who normally race in the EMX250 championship, took on the challenge of wildcard entries in MX2. Lata, who currently leads the EMX250 championship, showed flashes of brilliance. After qualifying 12th, he experienced a tough start but managed to work his way up to a 14th-place finish in the first race. Despite an even more challenging start in the second race, where he found himself at 34th on the first lap, Lata fought back to finish 17th. Mads Fredsoe also faced a huge learning curve, qualifying 20th and finishing 24th in the first race. The second race saw a remarkable improvement at the start, with Fredsoe rocketing to 3rd place on the first lap. However, maintaining this position proved difficult, and he finished the race in 19th place. Lata and Fredsoe finished the weekend in 13th and 22nd places, respectively. Next up Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing and the 2024 FIM Motocross Championship goes three for three, with a third race in as many weekends - at the MXGP of France on the 19th of May.    MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “I grew up around 15 minutes from here, and pretty much learnt to ride all around here, so of course winning an MXGP here makes things super special. Because it is my home event, I had a lot of commitments outside of racing this weekend, which made it challenging - but I have enjoyed every minute of it all the same. It’s a very tough track - especially in the second moto, which was very rough. My goal for the weekend was to win - and I did it! I feel like nothing could stop me this weekend! We also have recaptured the red plate - and to have it is important, but to keep it until the end of the season is going to take more work. I’m ready!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “My weekend was - let’s say - I’m super happy to have been on the start line at all! It was very early to come back to a race, with just so many days after the surgery, but everything was going good - so I think we made the right choice. We had a very good qualifying race - where we finished fifth - so I’m very happy with that one. Then both of the races on Sunday we had good starts - noth the best - but good. The intensity wasnt there in the first few laps, I was being careful to not hurt my shoulder. 7th and 9th, for 9th overall. Just to be able to ride six days after the surgery was so good - and to take away points from it - I’m very happy!” MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: "Today's race was super tough from start to finish. We had a decent start in the first moto, managing to carve through the pack to get a solid position. The track here in Galicia is brutal, with its tight corners and heavy soil, but we adapted our strategy. Unfortunately, in the second moto I made a mistake. I was pushing hard, running in sixth, when I went off the track and got tangled in the fence. It’s about learning from every lap, every corner, and every setback. We’ll take these lessons forward, and aim for a stronger comeback in the next round.”

      ANDREA VERONA CLAIMS ENDUROGP WIN AT GP OF ROMANIA

      View Profile
      Getting back to business for round three of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Andrea Verona claimed his first EnduroGP class win of the 2024 season with victory on day one in Bacau, Romania. The EC 350F racer also topped the Enduro2 class on both days to increase his lead in the E2 standings to a sizeable 27 points.
      • Andrea Verona takes first EnduroGP win of the season
      • Italian secures Enduro2 class wins on both days
      • EnduroGP action returns in six weeks’ time in Italy
      Much like round two’s scorching conditions, the weekend saw riders take to the course under the blazing sun and lingering dust. Kicking off the action in Bacau, Romania for round three, Friday night’s Super Test saw Andrea Verona bring his GASGAS home in fifth place for a solid start to the weekend’s racing. Fired-up for Saturday, Andrea remained unfazed by the tough conditions and put in a series of consistent test times to take the EnduroGP lead at the midway point of the day. Battling for test wins with Josep Garcia throughout, the Italian upped his game for the final few tests and extended his lead over his rivals to secure his first overall win of the EnduroGP season. The EC 350F rider also claimed his fifth Enduro2 win in 2024 with a lead of over two minutes on his closest rival. Motivated by his day one success, the GASGAS Factory Racing rider looked for more on Sunday. Placing third on the opening lap of four, he soon moved into second position. A pair of test wins took him closer to race leader Josep Garcia. But despite winning the final extreme test, he had to settle for the runner-up result on the day in EnduroGP. Repeating Saturday’s convincing Enduro2 victory, Verona extended his championship lead to 27 points. After three rounds of exciting world championship action, Andrea jumps up to second in the EnduroGP standings and extends his lead in the Enduro2 class. All attention now turns to Verona’s home round in Italy for round four of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship on June 21-23. Andrea Verona:  “I’m feeling really good about the weekend as a whole. I got my first overall win of the season on Saturday – I rode well all day and had a good rhythm which paid off! Day two was a positive day for me, but obviously not as good as yesterday. I started a little bit slow on the first lap but then I was able to get back up to a good speed. A mistake on one of the enduro tests increased the gap, but I’m happy to be lying in second place in the EnduroGP standings and to have increased my Enduro2 lead. Overall, it’s been a great weekend for me and the team!” Results: FIM EnduroGP World Championship, Round 3 Day 1 – EnduroGP

      Hard-fought points with 13th place for Augusto Fernandez at French MotoGP™

      View Profile
      The massive, vibrant crowd that filled Le Mans for the Grand Prix de France and round five of 2024 MotoGP were treated to another action-packed spectacle. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s riders were in the midst of the battle as Augusto Fernandez tackled the 27-laps to take 13th and 19-year-old rookie teammate Pedro Acosta crashed out of a dispute for the top six.
      • Augusto Fernandez pushes the GASGAS RC16 hard in the search for championship points and the Spaniard ends the day in 13th
      • Pedro Acosta has a slow crash vying for the top six
      • Moto3™ thrills provided by Daniel Holgado and Jacob Roulstone as the duo aced the pace in one of the closest contests ever at Le Mans. Holgado earns a brilliant P2 and leads the championship
      Anticipation and volume hit new heights at another capacity-filled Le Mans for the annual trip to La Sarthe. The Bugatti circuit inside the historic motorsport complex provided a grippy but also tricky Grand Prix challenge for the MotoGP teams. The mix of hard braking and accelerating zones was complicated by an overcast climate that threatened French rain and had the teams practicing for a bike swap and flag-to-flag outing. MotoGP blasted around the track and was cheered by the crowd for 27 gripping laps. Acosta and Fernandez started from 7th and 20th on the grid and Acosta made an ambitious launch from the third row. The rookie lost control of the front end under braking on the second lap, slid into the gravel at ‘Garage Vert’ and could not rejoin. Augusto kept pushing his times and rose through the rankings to enter the points. The Spaniard did not stop there and plotted a course to 13th for 3 decent points, a slice of confidence and signs of progression. Acosta’s fine campaign so far means he has tallied enough points to sit 6th in the championship standings, while Fernandez is 17th. The Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 squad are situated 6th from 11 in the Teams table. The Gran Premi de Catalunya at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will entertain round six in two weeks’ time. Augusto Fernandez, 13th : “My start was bad and we paid for that in the race. I had the soft tire so I thought I’d be better but these things can happen. It was a hard and tough race! Taking the positives of the weekend, it was the best GP for my feeling on the bike and we were more competitive, so I’m looking forward to Barcelona to keep this line and build up my confidence and speed.” Pedro Acosta, DNF: “Not a bad weekend overall. After the Sprint we made a big step with the setting of the bike and my feeling at this track. I made a good start and there were many guys making mistakes. Anyway, it’s another year of no results here: it is becoming a tradition! So, let’s take this ‘back’ at the next one.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “This year we leave the French Grand Prix thinking about what could have been. Pedro was quick in the warm-up and went into the race with a great feeling. He wanted to fight at the front but made an early mistake. He’s still young and this was the first error of the season. I think it will help him to bounce back and be a stronger rider even if he is frustrated at the moment because the potential was there. Augusto’s three points was a small reward for the whole team but it’s still not the position we are targeting with him. His feeling with the bike is improving but we need to start the weekends in a better way and be higher on the grid if we aim for improved results. Onto Barcelona.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of France   1. Jorge Martin (ESP) Ducati 41:23.709 2. Marc Marquez (ESP) Ducati +0.446 3. Francesco Bagnaia (ITA) Ducati +0.585 8.

They took to the grid in 2nd and 11th positions and with the intention of filing straight into the leading group. The Moto3 pack snaked into a gathering of 15 riders that filtered down to 10 as the heavy braking and accelerating criteria of Le Mans kept the contenders tightly wound. Holgado grabbed P1 on the first lap and set the pace, never dropping lower than third. On the final lap David Alonso edged through, and despite two strong attempts Holgado could not force his way back and secured the runner-up berth by just a tenth of a second. Roulstone, who has captured attention for his fast adaptation to Moto3 in his rookie season, was again brightly competitive and only slipped into the second pack with five laps remaining. From there the Aussie made sure of 12th. Daniel is currently front in the Moto3 points table (with 12 career podiums) and with a margin of 1 over the next nearest rider. Jacob is 13th. Daniel Holgado, 2nd : “An incredible race…but difficult. The others pushed very hard. I was happy with my speed and my pace and 2nd is very good for the championship. My rivals are strong now but I’m pleased with my race. I need to stay focused.” Jacob Roulstone, 12th : “I was quite good at the start of the race and this is something that I’ve struggled with previously. I opted for the medium tire so I knew it would come good. I settled into my groove and got up to 7th but then into Turn 2 one of the other riders ran me wide. My shoulder was a bit weak this weekend but something I could handle. I have learned a lot this weekend and I’m happy with how I got to grips with the track.

      JUSTIN BARCIA FIFTH IN SALT LAKE CITY 450SX SUPERCROSS FINALS

      View Profile
      Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider Justin Barcia finished off his 2024 AMA Supercross Championship season on a high note with a fifth-place result at Salt Lake City's Rice-Eccles Stadium tonight, continuing his late run of form in the 17th and final round.
      • Bam Bam battles to fifth in final 450SX Main Event of 2024
      • Pierce Brown finishes fourth in final 250SX East standings
      • Kiwi revelation Cole Davies rips to 250SX Futures crown!
      Barcia put his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition sixth on the time sheets at the conclusion of qualifying and then impressed with second position in the opening premier class Heat race of the night.
      From there, he kept momentum into the 450SX Main Event, where he would greet the checkered flag in fifth position, marking his third top-five result across the final four races of the series. He claimed eighth in the championship points in the end.
      Justin Barcia:   "Salt Lake City was a good way to end the Supercross season. I felt very comfortable all day, which landed me finishing second in the Heat race, and I’m happy to end the season with a top-five finish on my GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition. I’m focused and ready for the outdoors now!"
      The second 250SX East/West Showdown of the year was a challenging one for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing, with Pierce Brown qualifying fifth and then replicating that result in the 250SX East Heat, but he had to settle for 12th in the Main Event. That result saw him finish the season fourth in the final standings on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition.
      Utah was also a mixed outing for 250SX West newcomer Ryder DiFrancesco, the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider qualifying in P7 and then racing to ninth in the western regional Heat race. He was 13th in the 250SX East/West Showdown Main Event, which maintained 12th position overall in his first season of AMA Supercross as a professional.
      Ryder DiFrancesco:   "I started out today decent and kept working to improve throughout the day. It wasn't what we wanted overall, but going into the outdoors fresh now and am looking forward to that."
      GASGAS amateur standout Cole Davies once again made a major impression in winning the 250SX Supercross Futures Main Event in Salt Lake City, crowned the AMA National Champion in the category following what has been a breakout year for the New Zealander on his GASGAS MC 250F.
      Cole Davies:   "It's definitely good to get this experience in the Supercross Futures and I've improved at each round. I'm super excited to win this title with GASGAS and really appreciate everybody who has been behind us this year!" Next Race:  May 25 – Pala, California (AMA Pro Motocross)

      RED BULL GASGAS FACTORY RACING BATTLE THE ELEMENTS AT AGUEDA MUDFEST

      View Profile
      Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing grabbed key points with Jorge Prado fighting to 13th overall in MXGP, while Simon Längenfelder raced to 9th overall in MX2.
      • Jorge Prado overcame crashes and tough conditions in Agueda, showing resilience by recovering crucial points for the championship despite finishing 13th overall.
      • Simon Längenfelder excelled in the first moto with a second-place finish, but a crash in the second moto led to a DNF and a suspected collarbone injury.
      • Despite the challenges of the MXGP of Portugal Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing places third in MX2 and second in MXGP in the Manufacturers Classification.
      In a weekend dominated by torrential weather, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing confronted the challenging elements head-on, clinching essential points. Situated on the north-west coast of Portugal, near the town from which the circuit derives its name, Agueda is known for its relentless hard pack surface. However, this weekend, the 1320m track was transformed into a deep, slippery quagmire of mud and rain, setting the stage for the season's first major mud race. Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's MXGP rider, Jorge Prado, encountered one of the season’s most demanding challenges yet; finishing 13th overall. The defending champion began Sunday promisingly in the first moto, swiftly advancing from a 7th place gate slot to hold 4th in the initial laps. However, the deteriorating track conditions were unforgiving, and a cross-rut on the fourth lap caused an uncharacteristic fall. Prado rejoined the race more than a lap behind, in 23rd position, and despite a heroic effort to regain ground, he finished the race in 16th place. The second moto started with a flash of brilliance as Prado nailed the Fox holeshot - his seventh of the season - immediately asserting himself at the front. However, an early crash dashed his hopes of a podium finish, relegating him to 23rd. Undeterred, Prado fought valiantly back to 12th by the race end. While Jorge’s performance at Agueda may not reflect his usual dominance, his ability to race in extreme conditions and salvage crucial points keeps him firmly in the championship fight. In MX2, Simon Längenfelder was flying the flag solo for Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing, with teammate Marc-Antoine Rossi sidelined due to an injury sustained at the previous round in Trentino. Langenfelder quickly mastered the treacherous conditions, charging into the top three right from the start and securing a solid second place by the third lap of the first race. His speed was on full display as he set the fastest lap of the race, a blistering 2:05.9, on lap seven. He maintained this incredible pace to finish an impressive second, just 10.7 seconds behind the leader. However, the second moto brought a stark contrast. Despite a strong start, disaster struck early-on when Langenfelder crashed due to the deceptive deep mud. The unfortunate incident led to a suspected collarbone injury, forcing him to retire prematurely and record a DNF. In EMX250 Valerio Lata followed up his masterclass performance in Trentino, with another podium - finishing P2 overall, after a third and second place finish in both motos. As the Red Bull GASGAS squad now looks forward to the next round - the MXGP of Galicia in Lugo on the 12th of May - the focus is clear: adapt, overcome, and return to the top of the podium.   MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “The MXGP of Portugal is over, and it was extremely challenging. I was the fastest when the track was dry early in the weekend, but then the rain came on Saturday and Sunday. In the qualifying race, I struggled a bit with getting the bike set up, but by Sunday, I was the fastest again. I definitely had good speed, but the starts from P7 were tough: there were mistakes, crashes. The conditions on Sunday made it super tough. I had to make two pit stops in the first moto, and then I crashed after a good start in the second moto. It was a pity because I know I've been hard to beat on this track—but sometimes, that's just how it goes! Now, we're just looking forward to the next race. We're 15 points down, but hopefully, we'll get back that red plate soon enough!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “Every lap in Agueda was a battle against the elements as much as against the clock this weekend. We showed our pace and fought hard, proving that even under the toughest conditions, we push to the limit. It's a setback, for sure, but every challenge is a setup for a stronger comeback. We'll heal, regroup, and hit the track with even more determination. Thank you, as always, to the team for all their hard work and support this weekend!”

      FOURTH IN DENVER SUPERCROSS A CONTINUATION OF JUSTIN BARCIA TURNAROUND

      View Profile
      A fourth-place finish from Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider Justin Barcia at Denver's penultimate stop of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship saw him continue his rapid run of late-season form, making further progression that he's been building upon in recent weeks.
      • P4 result Bam Bam's best finish since San Diego podium
      • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing makes further gains
      • Ryder D returns in an inspired ride to 11th position
      Barcia qualified ninth on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition, before racing to fourth in the second 450SX Heat race of the round. After completing the opening lap in P6, a consistent effort in the Main Event saw him move forward to a fourth-place finish, which has in turn elevated him to ninth in the championship standings following 16 of 17 rounds. Justin Barcia:  "Practice and Qualifying were good today, and then the Heat race was okay, even if fourth wasn't exactly what I wanted. Going into the Main, I knew the track had deteriorated and that my bike would work good on that in the hard-pack. I got a pretty good start, had a lot of intensity in the race, and we were just off the podium in fourth. All in all, it's been a positive couple of weekends, and we've got one more to go in Salt Lake City – podium or bust!"
      The resumption of 250SX West saw Ryder DiFrancesco back on track tonight inside the Empower Field at Mile High stadium equipped with the GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition, where he qualified in P9 and then was fourth position in Heat 2 after leading initially.

      Trouble at the beginning of the Main Event saw him wedged at the back of the pack, however, from there he climbed all the way back to 11th by race's end in a well-earned result. He continues to sit 12th in the series with one round left to run.
      Ryder DiFrancesco:  "Denver was okay, but not the result we wanted. In the Heat race I got a holeshot and led a few laps, which was good. In the Main Event I went down on the opening lap and ended up 11th, but came back even if I didn't ride very well. I'm excited to try and finish up good next weekend before we head outdoors!" Next Race:  May 11 – Salt Lake City, Utah

      FOURTH PLACE FOR BUSTO AT X-TRIAL SWITZERLAND

      View Profile
      It was a die-hard performance by Jaime Busto at round four of FIM X-Trial World Championship in Switzerland. But a couple of small mistakes in the first two rounds cost the GASGAS Factory Racing star dearly, ruling him out of the grand final by just one mark. Jaime finished in fourth place overall and now ranks third in the series standings.
      • Busto finishes fourth at X-Trial round four
      • Spaniard misses the final by just one mark
      • TXT GP 300 rider now holds third overall in the championship standings
      Getting his night in the Geneva Arena off to a strong start, Busto cleaned the first section of round one in style – the first rider to do so. After another clean on section two, Jaime looked well-placed to finish round one inside the top three. However, a failure on a huge step on section three knocked the Spaniard’s confidence, and two subsequent fives placed him in fourth position going into the second round. Busto made another solid start to round two, cleaning section one in super-fast time and again looking on form heading into the second section. An unfortunate error early in the section resulted in Jaime being awarded a five, and with another five on the super-tough third section, he needed to clean the fourth and final section of the round in order to be in with a chance of qualifying for the final. Demonstrating his skill and aggression, Busto did what he had to do and cleaned the fourth section of round two, putting him on 25 points for the first two rounds combined. Unfortunately for the TXT GP 300 rider, it ultimately wasn’t quite enough. Missing out on the grand final by just one point resulted in Jaime having to settle for fourth overall on the night, dropping him to third overall in the 2024 X-Trial Championship standings. Jaime and GASGAS Factory Racing now shift their focus to the outdoors and the first round of the FIM TrialGP World Championship, to be held in Japan from May 17-19. Jaime Busto:  “I’m really disappointed after tonight. I was so motivated to do well here in Switzerland ahead of the break, but things just didn’t go my way. A mistake in the first round put me on the back foot a little, but I went into round two giving it everything I had. The first section went really well, but then on the second, I jumped down from one obstacle and the next one moved a little and I lost my balance. Unfortunately, with the results so tight here tonight, I just missed out on getting through to the final. Third overall now, but only a few points back from second. TrialGP starts in a couple of weeks so I’m looking forward to that." Results – 2024 X-Trial World Championship, Round 4

      View Profile
      Still red, still awesome, and still so much fun to ride. The 2025 line-up of GASGAS trial bikes is officially here! Updated with better and stronger components, all six models across the TXT GP and TXT RACING ranges are designed to deliver unrivalled fun and performance in equal measure. And that’s exactly what they do…
      • 2025 line-up of GASGAS trial bikes break cover
      • All six models enhanced with new components
      • See them in person at the 2024 Scottish Six Days Trial!
      Besides our awesome TXT RACING 125, all 2025 bikes benefit from a new cylinder head to ensure improved cooling. What is super fresh is the fact that we’ve made sure you’re still able to swap the cylinder head insert for one from our Technical Accessories range, allowing you to customize and boost power even more.

      For 2025, all bikes feature revised transmissions for improved shifting and reliability. What’s more, our TXT RACING models now feature the same gear lever as found on our TXT GP bikes for added strength and smoother shifts. And the upgrades to our TXT RACING range don’t stop there! The bikes are now equipped with the same wavey GALFER disks as found on our TXT GP models, so you’ll absolutely love the heightened level of braking control as you work your way through every section. These disks meet the regulations of the highest FIM race series, ensuring no change is needed.

      Exclusive to the TXT GP bikes are slightly reworked hubs for even better strength, which in parallel results in a weight reduction in the front. The lighter hubs are just as strong as before, still anodized in black, and finished with two GASGAS laser etched logos. Also, TXT GP models look the business with the latest GASGAS Factory Racing inspired graphics.

      Even though each bike in our 2025 line-up is built to perform at the highest level of trial, that doesn’t mean they can’t be ridden for fun by those who simply want to enjoy time with their buddies at the weekends, or taken into the mountains for a spot of trial hiking. And by being so easy to ride, maintain, and customize, it’s pretty clear why GASGAS trial bikes are loved by so many enthusiasts around the world.

      Are you heading to the iconic SSDT this year? If so, then we’ll have two of our 2025 models on display so you may well be one of the first people in the world to see them in person. Pretty cool, right? Find out more about our presence at the iconic event, right here.

      All six bikes will be available from GASGAS dealerships worldwide by end of May 2024. But if you can’t wait until then, contact your local authorized GASGAS dealer for further details on pricing and availability.

      MARC-ANTOINE ROSSI TO MISS MXGP OF PORTUGAL DUE TO INJURY

      View Profile
      • Marc-Antoine Rossi, will miss the upcoming MXGP of Portugal on May 5th due to an injury sustained during the MX2 race at the MXGP of Trentino two weeks ago.

      • After sustaining severe bruising and a hematoma on his left thigh from a crash, Rossi does not require surgery, and is undergoing physiotherapy at home in Corsica, aiming to recover in time for the MXGP of Galicia on May 12th.
      Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing MX2 racer, Marc-Antoine Rossi, will sit out the upcoming MXGP of Portugal on May 5th due to injuries from a high-impact crash during the opening lap at the MXGP of Trentino. The accident left Rossi with deep bruising and a hematoma on his left thigh, sidelining him for the next race in Agueda.

      Post-race examinations revealed the extent of Rossi's injuries, prompting a return to his Corsican home for rest and recovery. With a further medical check-up consultation recommending against surgery, Rossi has now embarked on an intensive physiotherapy regimen aimed at getting him race-ready for the MXGP of Galicia on May 12th.
      GASGAS Factory Racing remains fully committed to supporting Rossi’s swift recovery and eagerly anticipates his return to the track. We extend our gratitude to his fans for their understanding and support during this recovery phase.

      Stay tuned for further updates on Rossi’s progress and his expected comeback.

      MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi:  "I'm really disappointed to miss the MXGP of Portugal. It's always tough to be away from the track, especially when your team and fans are counting on you. Right now, my focus is on healing and getting back to racing as soon as possible. I am working closely with my medical team and following all their advice to ensure I come back strong as soon as possible. I want to thank everyone for their support and understanding during this time, especially my team, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing, for standing by me. I'm determined to return better and stronger."

      Top ten for Acosta as GASGAS help fuel the thrills at Spanish MotoGP™

      View Profile
      Spanish Grand Prix heroics for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 at a packed and sunny Jerez and the Gran Premio de España as Pedro Acosta’s maiden MotoGP season ‘good times’ continue to roll. The rookie recovered from a fast crash in Warm-Up to grab 10th place in the race at round four of 21 in 2024. Moto3™ star Daniel Holgado rallied from 18th place to grab 7th in front of an expectant crowd and retains the position of world championship leader.
      • Pedro Acosta follows up his first Sprint medal and a 2nd place finish on Saturday with a top ten result after 25-laps of Jerez on Sunday and sits 4th in the championship standings
      • DNF for Augusto Fernandez after a small mechanical glitch who will now focus on base set-up improvements in the one-day IRTA test at Jerez on Monday
      • Daniel Holgado and Jacob Roulstone recover well from adversity in wet and difficult qualification conditions on Saturday to push Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 into Moto3 points
      The 4.4km Circuit de Jerez-Angel Nieto shimmered in spring sunshine and under bright blue skies as round four of the MotoGP series got underway with a more stable track, compared to the damp patches that caused confusion and chaos in the 12-lap Sprint on Saturday. MotoGP faced 25 laps on Sunday afternoon and with Pedro Acosta starting from 10th on the grid and Augusto Fernandez two rows behind. 19-year-old Acosta, who had been vying for Pole Position on Saturday and collected the team’s first ever Sprint success (in the second year of the format), suffered a fast crash at the rapid Turn 7 in the morning but thankfully #31 was unharmed. Acosta was brave and quick enough to recover ground after a conservative start and bagged 10th for his efforts. Fernandez had extra work after he could not avoid a jump start due to a technical issue and had to take a double Long Lap penalty. Augusto came into the pits to try and rectify his situation but his race momentum was heavily affected and he could not classify. Once the checkered flag had fallen, the points were tallied and placed Acosta 4th in the standings, 23 from P1 and six ahead of Maverick Viñales. Fernandez sits 17th. Jerez is one of the most revered and historic circuits on the MotoGP slate but the championship moves to another mammoth fixture of popularity and prestige in two weeks with the Grand Prix de France around the famous La Sarthe circuit of Le Mans. Pedro Acosta, 10th: “Well, a good Sunday in the end considering the crash we had in the morning, which was not the best way to start the day. The race was quite good for the pace but difficult with the start: it was hard to overtake fast and not lose time. We took more experience today and we need to be happy.” Augusto Fernandez, DNF : “A bit of a disaster. I had a technical problem at the start and I could not stop the bike rolling. I wasn’t feeling great and then missed the Long Lap penalties: one to forget! Anyway, we have a test tomorrow where we really need to work to improve and to be more competitive and build the base we are missing.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “Not the end to the weekend that we expected in Andalucia. The day started with a high-speed crash for Pedro when he hit a damp patch on the track. He wasn’t injured but in the race itself he couldn’t make the best start and was 18th on the first lap. After that he made a decent pace to finish in the top ten which is a solid result considering all that had happened. On Augusto’s side he is missing some good luck. He moved out of his position on the grid for a small problem and that meant the jump start. Finally, he had to pull in at the end of the race. A tough conclusion to the weekend. We need to keep working and we have an important test tomorrow. I hope we can start to perform again in Le Mans.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Spain   1. Francesco Bagnaia (ITA) Ducati 40:58.053 2.

Daniel Holgado and Jacob Roulstone had the speed in practice to indicate that they could be competitive and try to carve through the field to find slots in the groups going for maximum points through the 19 laps but were both recovering from crashes in Q2. The Spaniard fared better and edged into the second pack, just adrift of the top six. From there he was kept busy with a close multi-rider dice and eventually grabbed 7th position at the flag. The Australian was further back in the third group and secured 12th for his fourth consecutive points-score. Holgado has a 6-point cushion as leader of Moto3. Daniel Holgado, 7th : “A very difficult race for me because yesterday was a big crash and a big impact to my body. I’m happy anyway. The team were great and now we’ll look towards our test this week to try and improve further.” Jacob Roulstone, 12th : “Not a bad race today. It was a bit painful for me but I decided to push through. I was feeling OK but with about ten laps to go, when I was at the front of the group, my shoulder and wrist started to hurt a lot more so I settled into my pace.

      HARD-FOUGHT SIXTH-PLACE RESULT FROM JUSTIN BARCIA IN PHILADELPHIA

      View Profile
      Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia's run of late-season form continued in the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship at Philadelphia with a sixth-place result in the 450SX Main Event, while teammate Pierce Brown was denied a shot at the 250SX East podium following a final lap mishap.
      • Bam Bam puts up a fight for sixth position in 450SX Main Event
      • Pierce Brown in 250SX East podium fight until late crash
      • Just one race remains in eastern region and PB sits third!
      Barcia was only a second outside of P1 at the end of Qualifying on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition and stopped the clocks in 10th position, before recording a P3 result in the opening premier class Heat race of Round 15. He was consistent on his way to P6 in the Main Event, withstanding pressure from behind, and maintains ninth in the series points table.
      Justin Barcia:   "We had a good practice today, qualified P10 and I was quite happy with that because we were within a second of the leader, so that was cool. Heat race, it was good, but nothing spectacular. In the Main Event, I came out top-five on the start and rode really well, then got a little tight in the middle. At the end – or really from the mid-stages of the race – Hunter [Lawrence] was on me and we had a really good battle – it was like the hardest fought sixth-place battle ever! I'm really happy with my ride, even if not so much the result. We're on the up and up, the bike was extremely good today, and I'm looking forward to the last two races in Supercross and onto the outdoors."
      250SX East teammate Brown was also on the gas in Philly, despite qualifying in seventh position. He rode his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition to fourth in Heat 2 and then factored up front in the Main Event until a crash entering the final lap while positioned in P3 unfortunately saw him drop down the order to a 14th-place finish.
      Brown has moved to third place in the eastern regional point standings with just one race remaining in the series, while next week we'll see the return of Ryder DiFrancesco in 250SX West at Denver. Both will be on track in Salt Lake City's 250SX East/West Showdown for the Supercross Finals.

      SOLID TOP-FIVE FINISH FOR JUSTIN BARCIA IN NASHVILLE SUPERCROSS

      View Profile
      Back inside the top five and forming a platform to build upon, Nashville was kind to Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia with a P5 finish in the 450SX Main Event tonight. And he's eager to keep trending in the right direction with just three rounds remaining in the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship!
      • Bam Bam scores first top-five result since Round 3 podium
      • Pierce and Ryder D go head-to-head in 250SX East/West Showdown
      • PB maintains fourth in eastern regional series standings
      The result marked Justin's best since he was third in San Diego toward the beginning of the year, continuing to make progress on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition, and satisfied with his night inside Nissan Stadium. Bam Bam was 13th in the afternoon sessions and then improved to sixth in his Heat, before featuring closer to the front of the pack when it counted, and he's currently ninth in the standings.
      Justin Barcia:   "Practice was decent, didn't feel like I was lighting the world on fire, and didn't qualify where I wanted, but all-in-all it was okay. Heat race, rode average, so I knew I needed to get it together, and we made a few changes for the Main Event. We got off to a decent start, made a lot of passes in the first couple of laps, and then I felt like I rode really well under pressure in the middle of the race. I made a charge toward the end and finished fifth – a top-five feels really good. We've been working hard, but it's been very challenging, and it's good to be closer to where we want to be. We've got a few more races, so we'll keep at it!"
      Nashville also marked the first 250SX East/West Showdown of the year, where both 250SX East regular Pierce Brown and 250SX West recruit Ryder DiFrancesco met on track riding their GASGAS MC 250F Factory Editions.
      PB was on the gas in Qualifying for P3 on the eastern region and then recorded a second-place score in his Heat, before things came unstuck for him in the Main Event. In the end, he took the checkered flag in 11th but has retained fourth in the 250SX East point standings.
      Pierce Brown:   "It wasn't the best night and I'm a little frustrated. I was in a really good spot on the first lap of the Main, made a mistake in the whoops, and that cost me. I feel like I left a good result out there, but sometimes you've just gotta move on. We definitely need to improve the result in the next race, but I felt great on the bike all day and that's what matters. I just need to bring my best version of me to Philly!"
      After setting the eighth-best lap of qualifying in 250SX West, Ryder D led his share of the restarted Heat race on his way to a confidence-boosting third-place result, but had to settle for 19th in the Main Event after striking trouble. The high-profile rookie is now positioned 12th in the championship order with two rounds in class left to run.
      Ryder DiFrancesco:  "All day was good for me here in Nashville. I led the Heat race for a while until the last lap, so that was cool to finally lead some laps, and then in the Main Event my start wasn't good, but I basically came from last to around seventh or eighth in the middle stages. At that point I went for a pass, ended up falling down, and was pretty far back in the pack from there. Everything else was really good throughout the day though, so I am excited for Denver."

        Second MotoGP™ podium for amazing Acosta as GASGAS shakes the USA

        View Profile
        The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas was the latest hunting ground for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 and their phenomenon Pedro Acosta. The 19-year-old seized the holeshot at the Circuit of the Americas and battled for the lead through the first half of the 20-lap distance before sealing a comfortable runner-up position. The rostrum appearance was his second in a row in what is just his third MotoGP race on the GASGAS RC16. Teammate Augusto Fernandez grabbed points in 14th place while the team’s Moto3™ star, Daniel Holgado, was also on the box and continues to lead the world championship.  
        • Acosta energizes MotoGP once more with his speed, energy and ambition. The Spaniard finishes 2nd and less than two seconds from the winner, rising to 4th in the championship standings
        • Improvements for Fernandez with his feeling and pace and the former Moto2 world champion pushes hard to take 14th and two points
        • Daniel Holgado stamps 2nd place in Moto3™ by the narrowest of margins and consolidates his P1 position at the top of the points table as rookie teammate Jacob Roulstone celebrates another top ten result
          A busy and expectant Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas took place at the wide scale and epic setting of the Circuit of the Americas, southeast of Austin. Pedro Acosta had already shown more of his limitless potential by qualifying 2nd on the grid and for his first front row start as Augusto Fernandez also showed marks of improvement with his feeling and possibilities on the 2024 GASGAS RC16. Acosta signaled his intention from the first seconds of the third round of the championship. He swept to the holeshot and then tussled with names like Marquez, Martin and Bagnaia for the lead, endlessly probing line variations, positioning, overtaking opportunities and with fearless braking. The Grand Prix was breathtaking as the riders pushed the limits of their tire grip. The general pace eased slightly in the final phase but Acosta kept the tension high as he closed to the rear wheel of Maverick Viñales with two laps to go. At the flag the different was 1.7 seconds as Acosta climbed the box in a row and for his personal best classification, three weeks after finishing 3rd in Portugal. Augusto had his own battle on the outskirts of the top ten and in the search for the most amount of points. He sensed that the top 13 might be possible in the final laps but was able to confirm 14th. Acosta’s impressive efforts mean he is 4th in the championship standings and just five points from P2. Fernandez will be looking to build his points stock from 16th. The thick atmosphere and passion for motorcycle racing that is such a forceful part of the Spanish Grand Prix will be felt in two weeks. MotoGP will form-up inside the Jerez circuit for the first of four rounds to take place on European soil in May and June. Pedro Acosta, 2nd: “What a race. It’s a long time since I enjoyed a race as much. You cannot imagine how fun I had passing the boys. I overtook them, they overtook me, I had to recover positions: it was super-nice. We learned a lot from Saturday and used it for Sunday and we have to be really happy about that.” Augusto Fernandez, 14th : “Hard race but some important points. I struggled to keep the pace today. We need to analyze what Pedro is doing because it’s amazing and he made the right choice with the tire. I’m looking forward to getting back to Jerez because it might be slightly easier to understand how we can maximize the bike more there. I’d like to get closer. I’m feeling stronger than, say, we were in Qatar but I want to learn more.” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “An unbelievable performance and race from Pedro Acosta. It is almost hard to find the words. We are only at the third round but we already have two podiums and it’s amazing how the weekend went. We felt that he was disappointed after his Sprint yesterday, so we decided to gamble a little bit with the rear tire and he was really strong with his decision. It shows how mature he is. The numbers show that he is on the way to becoming a great rider. I want to urge Augusto to keep working in the direction we took for COTA. This weekend we tried something different and be more conservative with the bike. We didn’t see the full benefit of this strategy but it was a better weekend and the two points was a small reward. I’m sure this approach will pay-off soon. Congratulations to the whole team for a great weekend.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Americas   1. Maverick Viñales (ESP) Aprilia 41:09.503 2.

        ANDREA VERONA CLAIMS DOUBLE ENDURO2 VICTORY IN PORTUGAL

        View Profile
        Just one week after clinching a double podium in Enduro2 at the FIM EnduroGP World Championship season opener, GASGAS Factory Racing's Andrea Verona has stormed through the second GP of Portugal. Unleashing the full potential of his EC 350F to dominate the E2 class on both race days, he now leads the Enduro2 standings.
        • Verona takes double Enduro2 class win in Portugal
        • GASGAS EC 350F racer now leads E2 class by 15 points
        • EnduroGP continues in one month’s time with the GP of Romania
        In contrast to round one of the EnduroGP World Championship, the second leg of the 2024 series, held in Valpacos, Portugal, was raced in dry, scorching conditions. Action got underway with the Friday night Super Test, where Verona steered his EC 350F to third place on the tight and twisting track, setting himself up nicely for the long and grueling day one. Attacking the 11 tests on Saturday, Andrea went fastest in the Enduro2 class on eight of them to claim a comfortable win, well over one minute ahead of the second-placed rider. Verona’s performance also secured him a well-earned third place in the overall EnduroGP category. Fired-up for Sunday, and focusing on the areas of his riding that cost him time on the previous day, Andrea got his head down right from the off, showing his intentions to his two closest EnduroGP-class rivals. What followed was a day of intense racing between the tapes, with the top three often separated by fractions of a second on each test. At the midway point through day two, Verona lay second overall, less than 10 seconds down on the leader. Putting in an incredible performance on the unforgiving Portuguese terrain, the Italian closed to within just less than six seconds of leader Holcombe going into the final test. Giving his all, Andrea delivered another test win, but it wasn’t quite enough – the GASGAS star was forced to settle for second overall, missing out on his first EnduroGP victory of 2024 by a mere 1.08 seconds! At the close of racing in Portugal, with two rounds completed, Verona leads Enduro2 by 15 points and lies third in the EnduroGP class, trailing the joint leaders by just 10 points. The FIM EnduroGP World Championship now takes a one-month break before resuming with the GP of Romania on May 10-12. Andrea Verona:  "Overall, it's been a really good weekend. I won both days in E2 and finished on the EnduroGP podium twice as well. Throughout the entire weekend, things were tight between Josep (Garcia), Steve (Holcombe), and me, often with less than a second separating us in each test. After finishing third in EnduroGP on Saturday, I knew I had to give everything on Sunday, and I pushed as hard as I could right from the start. I have to say that missing out on the overall win by just one second is really frustrating, but that's racing. I gave 100 percent and I know my speed is good. The plan now is to train more before the next round. We have a few things to work on, so hopefully, we can come back even stronger in Romania next month and take the win. Thanks to the team and everyone who supports me. It's been an intense couple of weeks here in Portugal, and we're going full gas into the next one." Results: Round 2, GP of Portugal

        RAPID CONSISTENCY CONTINUES FOR PIERCE BROWN WITH FOURTH AT FOXBOROUGH SUPERCROSS

        View Profile
        They say consistency is key and that's exactly what Pierce Brown continues to deliver with Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing in 250SX East, finishing fourth for the third-consecutive round and maintaining his string of top-five scores in AMA Supercross 2024.
        • PB keeps his top-five run intact with fourth position
        • 250SX East title is still within reach with three rounds to run!
        • Bam Bam finishes just outside of the top 10 in 450SX
        Brown has been in career form on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition this season, continuing to knock on the door of an elusive podium. Despite only sitting eighth at the end of qualifying, he jumped to P4 in his Heat race and then replicated that result in the Main Event with a P4 finish. Pierce is also fourth in points, just 15 outside of the red plate.
        Pierce Brown:   "Foxborough was an alright night! I feel like I struggled throughout the day and then I pulled it together in the Main Event. I had a decent start and then rode consistently in fourth, which was all I had tonight. We'll go back to work next week and then see you guys in Nashville!"
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing 450SX contender Justin Barcia also gained strength as Round 13 of the season went into the night program, racing to fourth position in Heat 1 of the premier class. Bam Bam then powered his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition to 11th in the Main Event, which wasn't the result he was looking for but will be one to build upon into the final four races of the AMA Supercross season.
        Foxborough saw the Supercross Futures drop the gates again, where GASGAS-backed Cole Davies qualified in second position during the afternoon. He recovered from an early mishap in the Main Event, climbing from outside the top 10 to take the checkered flag in a solid fifth position.

        PRADO'S SANDSTORM: RED BULL GASGAS ACE DOMINATES MXGP OF SARDEGNA

        View Profile
        Jorge Prado storms to his third consecutive overall win of 2024, while MX2 riders Simon Längenfelder and  Marc-Antoine Rossi secure solid MX2 finishes
         
        • Jorge Prado treats fans to a sand masterclass winning both motos in Sardegna 
        • Simon Längenfelder maintains second in the MX2 championship with valuable points hauls 
        • Marc Antoine Rossi secures double top-10 finishes moving him to 8th in the championship
           
        Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing MXGP racer Jorge Prado was crowned the new king of sand at Riola Sardo, with three wins on the spin, after he left his rivals trailing at the MXGP of Sardegna. The reigning champion won Saturday’s qualifying race, both motos on Sunday, and secured the Fox Holeshot Prize.  In every outing, Prado treated fans to a masterclass of MXGP, while smashing his rivals' hopes that the deep sand of the 1750m circuit would give them a chance to nip at his heels. From the moment the gate dropped in moto one, Prado was a man on a mission. With ultimate speed and style, he carved out an early lead over rival Tim Gajser. Prado's pace was relentless, and his control over his GASGAS MC 450F was supreme. By the end of lap one, he had already established a 1.641-second gap over Tim Gajser, a lead he would only extend as the race progressed. After 18 laps of unyielding pace, Prado blasted across the finish line to confirm his fourth win of the season. As the afternoon sun began to dip, casting long shadows over the sand, Jorge Prado once again stepped up to deliver an unforgettable performance in MXGP’s second moto. Blasting out of the gate with the same ferocity and determination seen in moto one, Prado claimed the lead by the second turn, leaving the competition to battle for the remaining spots. His ride was another blend of epic pace and precision, and despite being chased hard by KTM rider Jeffrey Herlings, who eventually crashed while in pursuit on lap 10; Prado cruised home to victory. The result propels Prado further into the championship lead with 174 points. Meanwhile, in MX2, Simon Längenfelder showed impressive form in the treacherous deep sandy conditions. After securing 5th in qualifying, the young German had a mixed start in the first moto, initially slipping to 6th position. Undeterred, Längenfelder fought back, momentarily climbing as high as 4th. However, the opening moto’s challenges saw him eventually cross the finish line in 7th. In the second moto, Längenfelder went bar-to-bar with rival Lucas Coenen, fighting for second position. However, in the second half of the race, the strength-sapping deep sand took its toll, and Längenfelder slipped to fourth. Rival Andrea Adamo was later disqualified for not coming to a complete stop in pit lane, which promoted Längenfelder to 3rd. Teammate Marc Antoine Rossi banked another solid moto's worth of experience throughout his weekend in Sardegna, recording a top 12 spot in qualifying, as well as 11th and 10th place finishes, resulting in a 10th overall placing. Impressively, Rossi now sits in eighth position in the championship standings with 80 points. The FIM World Motocross Championship continues its run of back-to-back weekends, moving to the legendary Pietramurata circuit in the picturesque Trentino region of Italy on April 14th. Stay tuned!   MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “I’m in a good moment right now - I’m feeling great with the bike, and doing great work with the team. I feel good physically and have been training super hard. Everything is going great right now! I got two good starts in both motos and made no mistakes. I controlled the race and just tried to push until the other riders couldn't hold on anymore. It was just about that - the track was so physical! I’m really happy to win here in the sand again, and hopefully we can continue the 1-1 pace next weekend. It has been a long time since I got an overall win in the sand - I’ve come close a few times, but after today I guess you can call me sandman again!” MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “The weekend was challenging. I was quite happy with a fifth place finish in qualifying, but the thing was in practice I had a big crash and twisted my neck -which was quite painful. After that I was just happy to be able to race with no issues. Then on Sunday, I felt physically better - but still felt a little bit strange at points. I got a good start, and thought I had good pace, but after 20 minutes, I was just so tired and my lap times dropped off. I still managed to finish seventh. And in the second race I was battling for second and third. Andrea Adamo passed me - which put me back to fourth, but he was disqualified, so I got third position. To be in fourth overall, with only two points to third position is positive for sure, and I’m happy with the second race!”  MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: "This weekend was another step forward for me, and finishing in the top 12 in qualifying was super positive. The races were challenging, but I managed to secure 11th and 10th places, which I'm really happy about. I’m aiming for consistent improvement, and landing 10th overall here in the deep sand is super rewarding. Now I’m sitting eighth in the championship standings - this is something I couldn't have imagined at the start of the season. Every moto is a chance to learn and get better, and that's exactly what I'm doing. I’m grateful for the support from the team and looking forward to carrying this momentum forward. I’m looking forward to Trentino!”

        ENDURO2 WIN FOR ANDREA VERONA AT GP OF PORTUGAL

        View Profile
        EnduroGP is back, and GASGAS Factory Racing’s Andrea Verona has shown he means business this season! Claiming a well-deserved Enduro2 class win at the first round of the series in Fafe, Portugal, Andrea’s fired up and looking good for 2024. Throwing down the gauntlet in less-than-ideal conditions on Saturday, the EC 350F racer topped the E2 category by over 12 seconds. Despite not fully gelling with the tests on Sunday, the six-time world champion stayed focused, fought hard, and clinched the runner-up spot to kick off his 2024 EnduroGP campaign with a strong start.
        • Verona takes Enduro2 class win on day one in Portugal
        • Italian finishes as runner-up in EnduroGP category on Saturday
        • World championship action resumes next weekend in Valpacos, Portugal
        The 2024 FIM EnduroGP World Championship fired back into life on Friday evening in Fafe with the first Super Test of the season. Showing impressive speed on the tight, technical course, Verona got his weekend off to the perfect start by topping the Enduro2 class. Saturday dawned wet and misty, and with the tests proving tough for all competitors, the conditions truly separated the elite from the rest of the pack. Andrea topped the Enduro2 timesheets on the first six tests to open up a healthy lead on his class rivals. Holding his advantage through to the finish, Verona secured the E2 victory and his first win of the season. On Sunday, Andrea came out fighting once again, posting the second-quickest time in E2 on the first test before going fastest in tests two and three. The 24-year-old maintained an excellent pace over the following two laps, but despite pushing hard and making the minimum of mistakes, he couldn’t quite deliver the times he knew he was capable of. Bringing his GASGAS EC 350F home safely as runner-up in the Enduro2 category, Verona secured his second E2 podium of the weekend and heads to round two of the series, also held in Portugal, as joint leader of the class and third in EnduroGP. Andrea Verona:  “I’m pretty happy with how my weekend went. On Saturday, I was well in the fight for the EnduroGP win and was happy with how I rode and my E2-class win. On Sunday, things didn’t quite go to plan – I felt my speed was good but each test I was losing just a couple of seconds to the other guys. I didn’t make any big mistakes, I just struggled to find my rhythm. Fourth in EnduroGP and second in E2 isn’t bad, but I was really hoping for better. Overall, my weekend has gone well – I’m really happy with the bike, and the team have done a great job as always. Now, I have to get focused again and then full gas for next weekend and hopefully I can improve things a little more here in Portugal.” Results: Round 1, GP of Portugal Day 1 – EnduroGP

We’ve been together since 2021 and I’m feeling good with the whole crew, the bike, and the factory. I might be biased, but I think it’s the best factory in the offroad motorcycling sector. I’m proud to represent GASGAS at races, especially as I’m the only enduro rider for the factory. The team are always fighting for the same goal as me, which is to win, and everyone is constantly trying to improve and make the bike faster or help me in any way I need. It’s so important to have that support behind the scenes and it allows me to be the best I can be. For the coming years, I’m happy to re-sign with the team and continue my professional career with GASGAS Factory Racing so we can keep fighting for those wins!”

        SIXTH OVERALL CAPS OFF SOLID ST. LOUIS TRIPLE CROWN FOR JUSTIN BARCIA

        View Profile
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia finished sixth in the third and final Triple Crown stop of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, with teammate Ryder DiFrancesco matching his 250SX West season-best result with P8 overall.
        • Supercross takes on final Triple Crown round of the season
        • Sixth overall for Bam Bam following 6-4-10 scorecard
        • Ryder D matches his best result of the year in 250SX West
        Despite qualifying down the order in 14th position, Barcia meant business once the gates dropped on the trio of Main Events and was consistent on his way to sixth in Race 1. He once again factored inside the top 10 on his way to fourth place in the second race, before 10th in Race 3 capped off his night. That placed Bam Bam sixth overall on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition, still positioned ninth in the standings. Justin Barcia:   "St. Louis was a little difficult in practice, being an extremely tough track, really soft and rutted. We had to make little changes throughout the day, and I got really comfortable by the second Main Event. We're making a lot of progress, so now we've gotta make it happen for a result – we never give up and we'll keep at it." Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing teammate Ryder DiFrancesco qualified 10th this afternoon and then improved on that to post seventh-place scores across the opening two races of the night. An early fall while in top-five contention saw him finish 12th, which saw him credited eighth overall for the weekend. He's now ranked 13th in the point standings after equaling his best result of the year on the GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. Ryder DiFrancesco:   "Tonight was good. We had three very good starts and that was a plus. In the first one I went back to seventh, and then in the second race I ran third for a long time, but was seventh again. In the last one, I went down on the first lap, came back to 12th and that gave me eighth overall, so it was a lot better. Starting up front makes things a lot easier and I had fun tonight!" St. Louis also saw the Supercross Futures back in action, where GASGAS-backed Cole Davies claimed another podium finish in third position. After winning Anaheim 2 and then placing second at Daytona, it was his third top-three result of the year onboard his GASGAS MC 250F.

        GASGAS CELEBRATES 2023 MXGP WORLD TITLE WITH SPECIAL MC 450F PRADO EDITION!

        View Profile
        What better way to celebrate the first FIM Motocross World Championship title for GASGAS than by creating a replica model of the winning bike! That’s right, our technicians have been busy building a fleet of awesome, 2025 MC 450F Prado Editions! The new, limited-edition model could easily be mistaken for Prado’s very own MC 450F, especially if you decide to apply the #61 numbers that we’re including with each one. Every limited-edition bike is built and finished with the best aftermarket components on the market, many of which were used by Jorge himself during his winning 2023 MXGP campaign.
        • GASGAS unveils the 2025 MC 450F Prado Edition!
        • Replica model inspired by Jorge Prado’s MXGP title-winning dirt bike
        • Each bike includes a #1 front number plate, signed by Jorge
        Just over 20 years ago, Jorge Prado dreamed of becoming the MXGP World Champion and in 2023, his dream became a reality. So here at GASGAS, we decided to mark the special occasion with a replica build of the bike he raced to clinch the title. Put simply, the MC 450F Prado Edition is as close as it gets to a real, full-factory race bike!

        Fully loaded with all the trick bits you could imagine, this limited-edition model pays homage to the huge milestone achieved by the Spanish star in 2023 – securing the prestigious MXGP World Championship title for GASGAS. And this replica bike certainly celebrates his incredible feat. If you dream big, just like Jorge did all those years ago, then the MC 450F Prado Edition is definitely what you need to achieve your goals!

        The headlining components found on the MC 450F Prado Edition are, without question, the Connectivity Unit Offroad and GPS sensor. Once you’ve paired both with the free-to-download GASGAS+ app on your phone, you can create multiple engine maps to suit various track conditions, record your lap times, view analytics to help improve your speed on-track, and so much more.

        Other parts that make the MC 450F Prado Edition so special include the Pirelli Scorpion™ MX 32™ Mid Soft tires, optional #61 numbers, a commemorative #1 front number plate signed by Jorge, and the latest Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing graphics for the 2024 season.

        Want more? Check out this list of what else you’ll find on the MC 450F Prado Edition…

        Sensational first MotoGP™ podium for GASGAS as Pedro Acosta carves the Algarve

        View Profile
        Red Bull GASGAS Tech3’s Pedro Acosta continues to inject youth and energy into 2024 MotoGP and the rookie showed his rapid learning curve once more with a 3rd place finish at the demanding Algarve International Circuit for only his second outing on the GASGAS RC16. Augusto Fernandez grabbed his first points of the season in 11th at the Grand Prix of Portugal as the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 team watched Moto3™ star Daniel Holgado score his first win in red!
        • Pedro Acosta completes the 25-lap chase with three sensational overtaking moves, his first podium finish in just his second MotoGP race and the first Grand Prix trophy for GASGAS!
        • Augusto Fernandez pushes for his first Grand Prix points of the year and meets the checkered flag in 11th
        • More speed and glory for Daniel Holgado with Moto3™ victory! The Spaniard also bags his second consecutive podium finish in 2024 and P1 in the early world championship standings
        Portimao missed some spring sunshine but brought action, fans and entertainment to the 2024 MotoGP story. Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 headed into the 25-lap Grand Prix race on Sunday with some indication of tire performance and their potential thanks to an engaging Sprint on Saturday where Pedro Acosta logged a ‘PB’ with 7th place and Augusto Fernandez discovered more feeling and competitiveness on the #37 machine. Acosta’s 7th place grid position (after experiencing the intense dive through Q1 and Q2 on Saturday) meant he was able to concentrate on his form and potency in the opening laps and then establish his race pace. The rookie was 9th in Qatar two weeks ago but swiftly sliced into that position and higher from the off. He overtook Brad Binder, Marc Marquez and then stalked world champion Francesco Bagnaia for a long period, climbing all over the Italian’s rear wheel. He finally relegated his rival to 5th with a delicious move into Turn 3. The last lap granted Pedro P3 to become the third youngest premier class podium finisher in history and his first spray of podium Prosecco! Augusto battled with two other riders around the edge of the top ten and came home with a deserved 5 points for 11th. An improvement over Qatar a fortnight ago and a shot of confidence for the Grands Prix to come. After building their pitbox setup and structure for European rounds, Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 now repack the flight cases for another long-haul appointment. The Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin will bring round three to life in three weeks. Pedro Acosta, 3rd: “What to say about today?! From the beginning of the race the bike was working unbelievably. I am still not 100% comfortable in the Sprint at the moment - but it is coming – and in the longer races with the full tank and the harder suspension I feel much better. I have been racing like this all my life! But, man, we have to be super-happy! Our first podium in MotoGP! The team have been working super-hard. For example, we tried some things in warm-up this morning to help us in the first laps and they worked. The bike has been super-nice from beginning but, step-by-step, we are arriving to the point of getting the pace that we really want it.” Augusto Fernandez, 11th : “A big step today. I managed the low grip after a good start and also had some good fights. I made a few mistakes because I wanted to push more but we know we need to make steps and take points. Our pace is here right now but happy to get points and want to keep building. Congrats to Pedro. Incredible!” Nicolas Goyon, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 Team Manager : “What an unbelievable result and unbelievable weekend here in the Algarve. We knew Pedro could have good pace here this weekend and with a good start he could stay with the leaders but what a race. We saw all his talent when he moved to the front and passed those riders, those champions. A great result for the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 team so we can only be happy and enjoy the moment. We are looking forward to seeing him again a bike as soon as possible! Congratulations also to Augusto and who doesn’t give up. He is facing his problems, and he is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. He was near the top ten and if he keeps working like this then he will be back near the front very soon.”   Results MotoGP Grand Prix of Portugal   1. Jorge Martin (ESP) Ducati 41:18.138 2.

Augusto Fernandez (ESP) Red Bull GASGAS Tech3, 5   Moto3 Dani Holgado started the 19-lap Moto3 Grand Prix from the second row of the grid and a promising 4th position after the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 was, again, one of the fastest riders in practice and qualification. The winner of the 2023 Portuguese GP gassed his machine right into the mix and swapped the lead various times as the group of contenders dwindled to just three racers by the final lap. Mindful of narrowly missing out in Qatar, Dani was strong and resisted the challenge from countryman Jose Antonio Rueda to take his RC 250 GP across the finish line in 1st. The achievement marked his fourth career win - and for the team - but his first for GASGAS. He tops the early championship standings by 7 points. Rookie Jacob Roulstone again showed quiet assurance in only his second appearance for the crew. The Aussie qualified well – in the middle of the fifth row – which helped him plug into the second group pushing for the top ten. A decent 11th at the flag means yet more points, more racecraft and education. Daniel Holgado, 1st : “An amazing job this Sunday. I’m happy because Friday and Saturday had been very difficult…but the team have been working really hard for me. Qatar was not good in the last lap, the last corner but today was perfect! Thank you to all.” Jacob Roulstone, 11th : “Quite happy with the race. I left it all out there, which was the main thing. The only thing that could be better was my first laps and I need to be more aggressive. Still, it was a step up from Qatar. I fought my way back as much as I could. The bike felt really good with a couple of changes we made for the race. The team is leading the championship, which is great, and I learnt a lot today.”   Results Moto3 Grand Prix of Portugal

        JORGE PRADO DOMINATES MXGP OF SPAIN FROM START TO FINISH

        View Profile
        Jorge Prado nailed a perfect weekend at the 2024 MXGP of Spain taking a record breaking 1-1-1-1 in practice, qualifying, and both motos on the technical hard pack of intu Xanadú-Arroyomolinos. While it's one thing turning up at your home Grand Prix as the defending champion, it is something entirely different dominating the entire weekend from start to finish. RedBull GASGAS MXGP rider Jorge Prado did both!  
        • Jorge Prado dominates his home race in Spain; finishing top in every outing on track
        • Simon Längenfelder grabs second overall with two podiums across two motos
        • Marc-Antoine Rossi continues to build speed with a top-eight overall result
          Jumping off his bike at the end of a 30 minute moto against the world’s elite, Jorge Prado had barely broken a sweat while putting in a true champions performance to record his 40th career win, and 81st podium. The Spanish rider led every session of the weekend, from gate to flag, continuing his brilliant masterclass of MXGP, following his win in Patagonia-Argentina two weeks ago. From timed practice,through qualifying, holeshots, and both motos, Prado kept the home crowds on their feet all weekend, showing that he was perfection personified at the Spanish weekender. What’s more Simon Längenfelder continued his charge on the MX2 championship standings, scoring second place overall at the MXGP of Spain. Längenfelder finished second in qualifying on the Saturday, and then grabbed the Fox holeshot as well as podium placing second and third slots in motos one and two respectively on Sunday. In the first moto Längenfelder really showed his raw speed - leading for the first nine laps before slipping back into second just after the halfway marker behind eventual winner Kay de Wolf. Team mate Marc-Antoine Rossi also continues to impress by finishing inside the top ten in both motos, and securing the Best Rookie of the weekend award. In the second moto in particular, Rossi charged up the field from a lowly 21st in the second moto, to finish 10th. 
        Following MXGP’s 2024 flag drop on European soil, the championship now rolls out of Spain to the sands of the MXGP of Sardinia at Riola Sardo, on the 7th of April. 

        MXGP - #1 - Jorge Prado: “It was an amazing weekend. Winning an MXGP at any race is hard and special, but doing it at home is even more amazing. It’s not an easy weekend because you have so many commitments besides riding motocross. When I got back to the hotel each evening I think I was more tired from that than the time on the bike! I felt my riding was perfect this weekend - good speed, good starts, and perfect finishes. 1-1-1-1. Practice, qualifying, races - finishing first every time I was on track is amazing, and I’m super happy with everything I did! Bringing points home for the championship is very important, so this is a great result for the team as a whole also. I just found my flow every time I was on the bike, and I’m feeling really fit - hopefully we can just keep this momentum up for the next race. I also want to say a huge thankyou to all the fans for their support this weekend, it really has been incredible! I love this sport!”

        MX2 - #516 - Simon Längenfelder: “I was feeling pretty good all weekend. For sure this is a track I like, but it is also a difficult track - it’s very easy to make mistakes and push too hard. Second in the qualifying race, and then second and third in the Sunday races, is great. The speed was definitely there for me all weekend. I was feeling strong with my riding, which is a boost to my confidence. There are so many fast riders, so if you make one small mistake you can easily slip down five or six places. Hopefully I’m showing the team what I can do - so I’m focused ahead on the next race to keep this momentum up.”

        MX2 - #28 - Marc-Antoine Rossi: “I had a fantastic weekend with yet another experience under my belt! I'm really happy with how things turned out, especially finishing the qualifying race in 7th place. In both races, my starts weren't great; in the first race, I found myself around 15th place initially but managed to climb up to 9th, showing some good lap times and sectors along the way. In the second race, I started around 20th place but, just like before, I worked my way up and finished in 19th place. Overall, I ended up in 8th place. Once again, I was the best rookie, which is really satisfying. I'm learning a lot and I can't thank my team enough for their support and for helping me grow. Now, I'm gearing up and getting ready for round 3 in the sand!”

        JUSTIN BARCIA BATTLES TO TOP 10 FINISH IN TECHNICAL SEATTLE SUPERCROSS

        View Profile
        Seattle produced some of the toughest conditions of the year in the AMA Supercross Championship at Lumen Field, but for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia it was another opportunity to keep making progress in 450SX, and that's what he did on his way to ninth position in the Main Event at Round 11 of the season.
        • Bam Bam battles hard on his way to third-straight top 10
        • Fourth in Heat race displays the promise of Barcia and MC 450F Factory Edition
        • 250SX West resumes with Ryder D racing to 13th after a late mistake
        Off the back of finishing ninth in Birmingham and eighth in Indianapolis, Barcia has been regaining form in recent weeks and that continued by qualifying P8 and then finishing fourth in Heat 1 on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition. He ran as high as fifth in the 450SX Main Event, only to go down in the second half of the race and he wasn't able to recover from there on his way to P9. Justin Barcia:   "I had a good practice today and the track was tough all day. In the Heat race, I got off to a bad start, but charged through the pack really well and was P4, so I was happy with that and I felt really good going into the Main Event. It was a good start in the Main, I was riding well and was battling with the guys even though I rode a little bit tight in the beginning. I loosened up in the middle, but unfortunately had a crash and didn't ride to my ability after that. We're getting there, getting better every weekend and our time will come, but until then we'll keep working and get after it!" The 250SX West season resumed with round six of that series, as Ryder DiFrancesco looked to make an impact on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. He was 12th in practice after being greeted by muddy conditions, but rode to fourth in his Heat race.
        A late crash in the Main Event dropped him outside of the top 10 to 13th place as he took the checkered flag, but it's clear that our Supercross newcomer will be able to build upon that result in the coming weeks as experience builds.
        Ryder DiFrancesco:   "It was a decent night and I feel like I rode better than what the results obviously show. The track was tough, but it was a good day and I was able to improve with stuff that I worked on during the break. Unfortunately, I went down on the last lap and lost around five positions, but St. Louis should be good and I'm excited to head into the Triple Crown round there."

        SECOND PLACE IN FRANCE FOR BUSTO AT X-TRIAL ROUND THREE

        View Profile
        Never giving up, right to the end, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Jaime Busto has claimed second place at round three of the 2024 FIM X-Trial World Championship. It wasn’t easy for the flamboyant Spaniard with the closely fought battle for the runner-up spot going right down to the wire, and a tie-break section deciding the final two podium positions.
        • Busto finishes as runner-up result at X-Trial round three
        • Tie-breaker win secures Spaniard P2 in France
        • TXT GP 300 rider now lies second overall in the championship standings
        Jaime made an excellent start to his night at the Palais Nikaia in Nice, delighting the enthusiastic French crowd with a fast and skillful run through round one. Losing just six marks, Busto placed second for the round and looked ultra-confident on his TXT GP 300. Maintaining his strong momentum into round two, Jaime blitzed through all four sections, losing a total of three marks. As the first rider to clean sections one and two, the 26-year-old lost two further marks on section three and a final mark on the fourth section. The result was enough for Busto to top the round and earn himself a valuable championship point. It also meant he becomes the first rider this season to steal a point away from championship leader Toni Bou. Heading into the final, Jaime was the second rider to tackle section one, where he lost just two marks. However, such was the difficulty of the remaining sections, Busto would ultimately go on to fail all four. With close championship rival Gabriel Marcelli finishing on the same number of marks as Jaime, the fight for second place on the night would come down to a single-section tie-breaker. Jaime attacked the formidable obstacles of the tie-breaker as he had all evening and completed the section in good time and with just two marks lost. With Marcelli under pressure, he failed the section, which not only gave Jaime second place on the night, but also an important four-point advantage over his rival in the championship standings. X-trial returns with round four on May 4 in Switzerland. Jaime Busto:   “Everything went well tonight, I was feeling really good on the bike, right from the very start. Taking the win in round two was really important and set me up well for the final. I went into the final sections fully motivated to give my all, but a few fives dragged me down a bit. Winning the tie-breaker was really important and I’m super happy to come away from France with second on the night and second in the championship. We have a bit of a break now, then it’s on to Switzerland for round four.” Results – 2024 X-Trial World Championship, Round 3

        PIERCE BROWN KEEPS CHARGING WITH P4 FINISH AT INDY TRIPLE CROWN

        View Profile
        Fourth place overall marked another convincing performance from Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider Pierce Brown in 250SX East at the Indianapolis Triple Crown round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, remaining in the title race over halfway through the season. 450SX teammate Justin Barcia is trending in the right direction after taking P8 overall tonight.
        • PB rebounds from opening race to land on 250SX East podium
        • Second in the final race the highlight for Brown in tricky conditions
        • Encouraging eighth overall continues Bam Bam's 450SX climb
        A tough opening race saw Brown recover from an early crash for 12th and then he managed to salvage fourth despite going down again in Race 2, before his best ride of the night was saved for last when he charged to second position riding the GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. That 12-4-2 scorecard placed him fourth overall for the second week in a row, continuing his perfect stretch of top-five finishes and he's still third in points – only 11 outside of the red plate.

        Pierce Brown:   "Fourth overall, I'm not stoked, but not mad about it after a rough first main. The second two were better with a fourth and a second, so I just need to eliminate those mistakes and we will get there. It was a good way to finish the night in P2, and we will keep pushing from here!"

        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing teammate Barcia was also impressive tonight, ripping his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition to 7-9-6 results. After qualifying P8 during the afternoon and then consistently factoring inside the top 10 tonight, his results are on the up and Bam Bam has also now worked his way to ninth in the championship order.

        Justin Barcia:  "I qualified P8, so I was happy with that today and the bike was working really well. First race was a bit of a blur – I don't really quite remember! – but in the second one I was riding well even though I made a few too many little mistakes. Third race, I was all over the guys at the end for a top five and pulled up in sixth. All in all, it was a positive weekend and we're gonna keep pushing hard to have better results and get back on that podium soon."

        SEASON-BEST FOURTH POSITION FROM PIERCE BROWN IN BIRMINGHAM

        View Profile
        Birmingham's ninth round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship was a solid one for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing, where Pierce Brown recorded a season-best fourth-place finish in 250SX East and Justin Barcia rode to ninth position in the 450SX Main Event.
        • Pierce Brown goes one better for his best result of the season in P4
        • Bam Bam finds a new direction to begin mid-season turnaround
        • Team looks ahead to next weekend's second Triple Crown of the year
        Brown was once again a factor in 250SX East, qualifying in position five during the afternoon and then charging to P2 in his Heat race. From there, he raced to a season-best fourth position in the Main Event, continuing his consistent run of top-five results on the GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. He's still third in the point standings, only five points outside of the lead following four rounds.
        Pierce Brown:  "I'm happy, but not satisfied. We're still in it in the points, but it wasn't the Main Event that I wanted. I made a couple of mistakes, which cost me a podium, but that was on me – we need better starts. Like I said though, we're in it in the points and I'm stoked with that heading into Indy next weekend! I just need to keep knocking on the door, doing what I'm doing and we'll get it eventually. Overall, we're trending in the right direction!"
        Tonight was an important one for Barcia on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition. He was eighth on the charts in qualifying and then surged to fourth place in his Heat, before claiming an encouraging ninth in the 450SX Main Event. That result moved him inside the top 10 in the standings as we move into the second half of the season.
        Justin Barcia:   "Overall, it was a good night, and we had a lot of positives to take away. We went in a different direction with set-up this week and it has given me the comfort I've been looking for, so ready to get back home and put in more work to keep progressing."

        FIFTH AT DAYTONA SUPERCROSS KEEPS PIERCE BROWN IN 250SX EAST TITLE CONTENTION

        View Profile
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Pierce Brown made it a third-straight fifth-place result to open the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in 250SX East, delivering another solid performance at the famed Daytona International Speedway.
        • Third-straight top-five result for PB in 250SX East
        • Improvements evident as Justin Barcia climbs 450SX order
        • Both riders qualify strong at the world-famous venue
        Brown has been a picture of consistency this year equipped with the GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition, going 5-5-5 across the opening three rounds of the eastern region and is now tied for P2 in the standings, only a single point behind the series leader. He qualified fourth and then replicated that finish in his Heat Race, before scoring P5 in the Main Event.
        Pierce Brown:   "Another fifth was okay on paper, but a disappointing night. I didn't get the start that I needed and it was hard to make passes, so we'll regroup and pick some stuff up for next week. Overall, the bike is good and the team is also, I just need to get a start and put myself into position sooner."
        The weekend was a step forward for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider Justin Barcia in 450SX, qualifying in sixth place and then storming to P5 in the opening Heat Race. He was affected by an average start in the Main Event, completing lap one in P18, before putting on a charge to claim 11th position on his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition.
        Justin Barcia:   "Daytona definitely wasn't the result we wanted, but we had some positives in practice, qualified a lot better today and there's some light at the tunnel, which was cool. Led a little bit in the Heat, like half a lap, and then got a bit tight and ended up going down once, but it was okay. In the Main Event, I didn't get off the start the best, had a couple of bobbles, crashed and really just struggled to hold on – I had some bad arm-pump tonight. We'll regroup again and be back at it next week!"
        Daytona also saw the 250SX Futures on track for the second time this season, where GASGAS amateur racer Cole Davies charged to second position in the Main Event and currently sits on top of the point standings following his 1-2 results to date on the GASGAS MC 250F.

        SPEED ON PIERCE BROWN'S SIDE IN ARLINGTON WITH ANOTHER TOP-FIVE FINISH

        View Profile
        Outright speed was evident yet again for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Pierce Brown in the latest round of the AMA Supercross Championship, with Arlington marking the second stop of 250SX East for season 2024.
        • Team celebrates Military Appreciation Round at AT&T Stadium
        • Second-straight fifth place boosts PB to second in the 250SX East
        • Bam Bam overcomes afternoon crash to claim 450SX points
        Pace has been on Pierce's side so far across the opening two rounds of 250SX East riding his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition, qualifying in third position today before finishing sixth in his Heat Race. 

        The start didn't go his way in the Main Event, however he managed to put on a charge from outside of the top 10 to fifth position by the time the checkered flag waved. With 5-5 scores to open the series, he's climbed to second in the point standings.

        Pierce Brown:   "Overall, not a bad weekend. Riding was good and I think we improved as a whole, so that was good. We got another fifth, but we're second in points now and we're in this – I'm excited! Now we're back to work on Monday to tighten a few things up before Daytona this weekend."

        Premier class teammate Justin Barcia pressed on in 450SX following a heavy crash in practice, able to put a difficult afternoon behind him to transfer via a win in the LCQ and then push to 14th in the Main Event. He's now 11th in the championship, motivated to regain full fitness and his front-running form on the GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition.

        Justin Barcia:   "Tough day here in Arlington. I had a big get-off in the final practice, lucky to somewhat come out of it alright with no big injuries – just a bit of whiplash, a bit bruised up, and a bit sore. Unfortunately, a crash in the Heat put me in the LCQ, which I won, and then in the Main Event I got in a second turn pile-up. I put on a good charge, was moving through the pack, and was about to crack into the top 10, but had another crash so that pretty much ended my hopes of a good result. It was a really tough weekend, but we're gonna go back to the drawing board and keep working. We never give up."

        TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING LOOKS AHEAD FOLLOWING GLENDALE

        View Profile
        Glendale marked the toughest night of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship season so far for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing, with team riders Justin Barcia and Ryder DiFrancesco each experiencing their share of adversity, but remaining motivated to bounce back in the coming weeks.
        • 450SX Class contender Justin Barcia battles hard throughout Main Event
        • A fall in the 250SX West Class Main Event marked the end of Ryder D's night
        • Troy Lee Designs x Palm Tree Crew collaboration turns heads in Arizona
        Barcia and his Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing MC 450F Factory Edition charged to a sixth-place finish in his Heat Race, ensuring Bam Bam a place on the line and a decent gate selection as the Main Event arrived.
        The Main Event would mark a challenging outing for the experienced premier class front-runner, who battled hard just outside the top 10 before going down and eventually being credited with 18th position. He's currently 10th in the 450SX standings entering a single weekend off.
        With the return of the 250SX West division inside State Farm Stadium, Ryder D completed qualifying in eighth position, equipped with his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition, before racing to sixth place in his Heat Race and enjoying a share of momentum leading to the night’s Main Event. An unfortunate crash, however, saw DiFrancesco end his night prematurely in Glendale with a DNF, but will be fit to race-on in Arlington next month. He will also take advantage of the upcoming six-week break in the 250SX West schedule.
        Max Lee – Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:   "It was a tough night for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS team. Ryder started out strong during the first part of the day, he had a couple of bad starts, but ultimately a crash in the Main ended his night early. He was evaluated and released, so will be ready to line up at the next 250 West round. Justin struggled all day, the team worked to get things better, although he ended up crashing in the Main as well. We're ready for a weekend off to regroup and we’ve got some work to do before Arlington." Results – 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Round 6

        TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING'S PIERCE BROWN CHARGES TO TOP-FIVE FINISH IN DETROIT

        View Profile
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team's Pierce Brown opened his 250SX East campaign with a fifth-place finish at the region's season-opener in Detroit, as 450SX Class racer Justin Barcia raced to a P12 result at Round 5 of the AMA Supercross Championship.
        • The 2024 AMA Supercross Championship shifted East inside Detroit's Ford Field 
        • Pierce Brown recovers for fifth place finish as 250SX East Class season takes off
        • Fastest in qualifying the highlight for in-form Brown to open the new series
        Barcia arrived in Detroit onboard his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition, dialing his machine in throughout qualifying before capturing third place in his Heat Race.  The Main Event would mark a more challenging outing for Bam Bam, who was buried off the start as the gates dropped. On a rutty, one-lined circuit, the number 51 did what he could to mount a comeback, which resulted in 12th place on the night. Justin Barcia:   “Struggled a little bit in practice to find a flow today... the track was super-technical with the ruts. I had a really good Heat Race, it was nice to get the fresh track as the first race of the program, so that was cool. Charged up to third in the Heat, then made a little change heading into the Main Event, and unfortunately it was the wrong direction as I was pretty uncomfortable. Not so good result, but we’re determined to work hard and come out swinging in Arizona!” In his first appearance of 2024, Brown showcased speed immediately as the 250SX East Class opened in Detroit, taking his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition to pole position in qualifying and demonstrating the work having been done throughout the pre-season. Converting his speed to third position in his Heat Race, a mid-pack start for Brown and being caught up in a multi-rider incident to commence the Main Event saw him playing catch up as he sliced his way through the field, capturing a strong fifth place result by race's end.  Pierce Brown:   “Round 1 for us is over and done with, I got the nerves out of the way which feels good. Overall, not a bad day, I got away lucky especially with what happened at the start of the Main… that was hectic! Salvaged a fifth, which isn’t too bad, and we’re in a good spot for the upcoming races, so I’m excited to put some work in and come out swinging at Round 2.” Results – 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Round 5 450SX Results – Detroit SX

        TRIPLE CROWN CHALLENGE FOR TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING AT ANAHEIM 2

        View Profile
        The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team endured a challenging night out at Round 4 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in Anaheim, California, with 450SX Class racer Justin Barcia credited P13, while 250SX West Class contender Ryder DiFrancesco finished with eighth overall.
        • Ghostbusters partnership headlines first Triple Crown round of the year for AMA Supercross
        • Ryder D posts consistent scorecard to seal P8 finish in 250SX West division
        • MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado delivers 12th overall in final 450SX Class appearance of the year
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Barcia arrived at Angel Stadium in style, as the team collaborated with Sony Pictures for the upcoming Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire film, with Bam Bam seated behind the wheel of the iconic 'Ectomobile' before climbing aboard his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition.

        Race day marked a difficult one for the number 51, who struggled to come to grips with the dry, fast layout that Anaheim 2 presented to the riders. In a night marred with misfortune and falls, the New York native would post 13-16-11 results across the trio of intense Races, which would position him 13th overall.

        Justin Barcia: “It was a very challenging day for me at A2 and definitely one to leave in the past. I struggled from the get-go… I just wasn’t very comfortable. A few too many crashes, which ruined our races, although I did get good starts! In the second Race I was in a good position, then had a big crash. Race 3, I was caught up with another rider getting squirrely, which put me back, and overall just a very challenging day. We'll need a rebound in Detroit!”

        DiFrancesco opened Round 4 by posting the seventh-fastest qualifying time in 250SX West, which the young Californian would back up with a strong fifth place in Race 1 after fighting for the lead early on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition. A consistent seventh-place in Race 2, combined with 12th in Race 3, saw Ryder D take home eighth overall for the weekend.

        Ryder DiFrancesco: “Positives from the weekend were my starts, they were way better, and then in Race 1 I was right amongst the fight. I made some mistakes across the day, but I'm ready to take this next weekend off and come back for Glendale in a better position.”

        Anaheim 2 presented another night of learning for defending MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado, gaining immense experience across the opening four rounds through the month of January.

        Racing his first-career Triple Crown, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing regular delivered a 12-8-15 scorecard, earning the Spaniard 12th overall for his final outing in AMA Supercross for the 2024 season.

        Jorge Prado: “Just finished my racing here in the U.S. and it’s been a great experience. I would say that this was my second real Supercross behind Anaheim 1, because this one and A1 seemed like the track was more realistic to Supercross with the conditions. I’m happy with my progress, the Triple Crown today was way different again... So much speed and intensity in the first laps, and I struggled with that, especially in the first one. I dropped back to P12 quickly, so I made more adjustments for the other two. But overall, I am quite satisfied, it’s been a good experience, for sure, and with more racing I could get better, so I am motivated for the future.”

        Anaheim 2 also saw the opening stop of the 250SX Futures development category, where new GASGAS amateur recruit Cole Davies won the Main Event to commence his 2024 AMA Supercross campaign in fine fashion on the top step of the podium.

        PODIUM SCORE IN SAN DIEGO FOR TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING’S JUSTIN BARCIA

        View Profile
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team’s Justin Barcia rebounded in style following a spell with illness to claim a strong third-place finish in the 450SX Main Event in San Diego, as 250SX West Class contender Ryder DiFrancesco finished with a consistent P9 result.
        • Bam Bam battles to first 450SX podium of the 2024 season inside Snapdragon Stadium
        • Ninth-place finish for newcomer Ryder D in the 250SX West Class Main Event
        • MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado to race Anaheim 2 after an 11th-place result
        Barcia collected the 12th fastest time in a tight 450SX qualifying session this afternoon, before racing his way to a solid fourth-place result in his Heat Race on the slick surface following constant rainfall in the area throughout the day. Launching out of the gates on board his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition in the Main Event, Barcia was inside the top three immediately as he began battling for the lead, shadowing the leaders as the race progressed. In what was a grueling encounter, he posted a calculated ride as the race wore on, with the number 51 sealing the third position. Justin Barcia:   “San Diego was a crazy day! We only had two practices, as the weather came in, so I qualified decent, but not where I wanted to be. Although, I kept a cool head and got through the Heat Race with a solid result. Main Event, I knew it was going to be gnarly – the track broke down a lot! I got off to an okay start, found second behind Aaron [Plessinger], and then missed the triple one lap, which let Cooper [Webb] get by me. Came in with a lonely third place, but super-stoked after last week and knowing that my health is nearly back to 100 percent.” DiFrancesco commenced Round 3 by posting the seventh-fastest qualifying time in 250SX West, which the youthful Californian would back up with fourth place in his Heat Race as he geared up for the night’s Main Event. A mid-field start followed by a consistent ride on a brutal track surface saw DiFrancesco piece together a race that saw him take the checkered flag in P9, as he navigated the treacherous conditions inside Snapdragon Stadium. Ryder DiFrancesco:  “Good weekend overall! I need to fix little mistakes that are keeping me from being upfront, but lots of positives to take away as we head into Anaheim again next weekend.” San Diego marked another consistent night of Supercross racing for defending MXGP World Champion Prado, whose third-career AMA Supercross event yielded the capable young Spaniard a sixth-place finish in his Heat Race for a direct transfer into the Main Event. Prado would follow that up with an 11th-place finish in the premier class Main Event, and the good news is that he and the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team have made the decision for him to remain in the U.S. and line up again at Anaheim 2 next Saturday. Jorge Prado:   “Today was another good experience. It was again not too easy after getting a bad start in the Main Event... I think the jump out of the gate was okay, but I got a lot of wheel spin, which sent me backward and meant I was one of the last to the first corner. My opening laps weren’t great, and then I got confused with the blue flags and let the riders who I was battling with by me, which was a pity. It is what it is, I can improve with my opening lap intensity, but I’m excited for three Main Events next weekend in the Triple Crown at A2 as I would like to at least be able to make one holeshot and enjoy that format of racing!” Results – 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Round 3 450SX Results – San Diego SX

        SIXTH FOR SANDERS ON DAKAR STAGE SEVEN

        View Profile
        After enjoying a little down time on yesterday’s Dakar Rally rest day, Daniel Sanders was back in action today on stage seven and clocked in with the sixth-fastest time. Starting from fourth into the special, sixth is certainly a solid result with the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing star remaining seventh overall and positive of even better days ahead.
        • Week two at the Dakar kicks off with another grueling timed special
        • Chucky remains seventh overall after strong showing on stage seven
        • Over 33 hours of racing already completed for Sanders and his trusty RX 450F
        Feeling fresh after delivering an outstanding result on the chrono stage and making the most of the Dakar Rally rest day, Sanders certainly came out swinging on stage seven. Even though he didn’t have the most favorable starting position after placing fourth on Friday, Chucky dug deep to deliver another strong result. By relying on his roadbook early on then following the dust kicked up by the leading riders, Daniel would ultimately finish the 483-kilometer timed special as the sixth-fastest rider. Daniel Sanders:   "Yeah, another very long day today. It wasn’t too bad though, not too draining or anything, I just tried to stay with the leaders on stage really. Navigation was a little tricky early on, so focusing on the roadbook was really important. Then, near the end, I caught up to the guys in front but then had to ride in their dust a little bit. Overall, it was a good stage and I’ve got a heap of energy left for the last few days, so I’m looking forward to the days ahead." Provisional Results: Dakar Rally 2024, stage 7

        PROMISE ON SHOW FOR TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING IN TOUGH SAN FRANCISCO CONDITIONS

        View Profile
        The second round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship marked a mixed night out for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team, with 450SX contender Justin Barcia salvaging points after battling through sickness this week, and Ryder DiFrancesco experiencing the highs and lows of racing in the 250SX West Class.
        • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team’s battles in the mud of San Francisco
        • Ryder D earns first Heat Race victory before enduring difficulties in the Main Event
        • Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado raced to a 450SX Heat Race victory and seventh position
        Round 2 marked a challenging night for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Barcia, who put in a warrior-like effort to endure the treacherous conditions while managing an illness. He qualified his way into the Main Event via the LCQ, where he would pilot his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition to 17th place. Justin Barcia:   “Crazy day here in San Francisco, crazy event. I got a serious sickness coming into this race, so I couldn’t ride or train, had to hit the hospital a couple of times, and I'm just really happy to be here. It was really tough with the weather, and unfortunately, my body was pretty hammered – made it hard on myself by going to the LCQ, but all-in-all it was a survival mode weekend for me. I'm happy to be in one piece and am looking forward to being healthy and putting my bike up front.” DiFrancesco opened his San Francisco race day by posting the 13th-fastest time in the sole qualifying session, before rocketing out of the gates aboard his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition in the second 250SX West Heat Race to the holeshot. Intent on checking out, DiFrancesco built a staggering 20-second margin between him and the second-place rider, sealing the first Heat Race win of his career in impressive fashion. An unfortunate start to the Main Event for DiFrancesco had him buried deep in the field, with the Californian ultimately ending up with an unfortunate DNF in the mud. Ryder DiFrancesco:   “It was a good night here until it wasn’t! All day I felt good in the mud, I don’t know where that comes from – maybe Bakersfield when it’s muddy, but that’s once a year... It was good to get my first Heat Race win, which is a cool feeling! We have a bunch of stuff to work on, but good thing we get to line up again next weekend.” Current MXGP World Champion Prado made his second AMA Supercross start in San Francisco with 12th in qualifying, quickly followed up by a massive Heat Race holeshot and a thrilling performance to secure the opening 450SX Heat Race victory. A measured ride during the Main Event saw the Spaniard claim a commendable seventh-place result. Jorge Prado:   “Second round is done, and I am very happy about everything. I feel like I got used to the format already after last weekend, which is a big adjustment for me, especially learning a new track in eight or nine laps. But hey, good start in the Heat and some good opening laps, stayed consistent, and got my first-ever Heat Race win! I was super happy about that because I’m not a big mud specialist, then in the Main Event the gate dropped very quickly, and I got a bad start. I slowly made my way through the field and only wanted to stay on the bike, that was my goal, so with seventh place, I am very happy.” Results – 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Round 2 450SX Results – San Francisco SX

        Consistent results for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team at AMA Supercross season-opener

        View Profile
        AMA Supercross roared back into action at the famed Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, this Saturday, as the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team entered the fray with Justin Barcia securing seventh place in the 450SX ranks, with new recruit Ryder DiFrancesco taking ninth place in 250SX West.
        • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team’s Justin Barcia finishes with seventh place at the season-opener
        • Ryder DiFrancesco races to ninth place in 250SX West Class on first outing with GASGAS
        • Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado delivers P13 in Supercross debut
        The buzz surrounding the opening round was in the air as riders met for the first time in months, hitting the track for the opening qualifying session of the year eager to showcase the improvements made throughout the off-season. For Barcia, limited seat time following his recovery from injury saw him land P13, equipped his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition. Fifth position in his Heat Race earned Barcia a direct transfer into the Main Event, where he would charge hard all race long inside the top 10 and translate his pace into a seventh-place result to begin his 2024 challenge Justin Barcia:   “Anaheim 1 was a stressful day and mostly because of the unknown... I didn’t have the strongest off-season I’ve ever had in my career, but I just used my veteran skills and had a good day! Qualifying wasn’t where I wanted to be, but I kept a cool head and had a decent Heat Race. And then in the Main Event, I made some good passes there and then had a good battle with Chase [Sexton], Aaron [Plessinger], and a couple of other guys, then tightened up a little bit at the end there. All-in-all, I was happy to get a top 10 and the goal for the season is to build as we go.” Piloting his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition for the first time in race conditions, DiFrancesco was on the gas from the outset, improving from 11th in qualifying and racing to a sixth-place finish in the opening 250SX Heat Race of the year. A top-10 start saw DiFrancesco battling for position throughout the entirety of the Main Event, pushing hard to move his way up the order. Ninth place was the result by the conclusion of the race, banking a solid amount of points and experience as the series next heads to San Francisco. Ryder DiFrancesco:   “It was a good night for A1, the first round is always a bit nerve-wracking, and it’s just the little things, like making it through the Heat Race into the Main Event. They’re things that no one really thinks about, so that was a huge check-off for me, and I know I have a lot more in me! Ninth isn’t where I want to be, but I ran fifth or sixth for half the race and I’m now stoked for San Francisco.” Lining up for his first career start in 450SX, all eyes were on defending MXGP World Champion Jorgo Prado as the Spaniard debuted in the tight confines of Supercross. After posting the ninth-fastest qualifying time, The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing rider signaled his intentions early, and a solid eighth place in his Heat Race resulted in a direct transfer to the Main Event. Prado powered out of the gates to one of his patented fast starts in the Main Event, mixing it up amongst the top Supercross riders in the world as he battled for position. Noting the track deterioration during the race, he gained invaluable experience under the lights of Angel Stadium, and finished in 13th place. Jorge Prado:   “First-ever Supercross race is done, and what an experience! It’s so different from what I am used to, and it was just a day of building. I felt good in practice every time, and then the night show the track was so different. I’m used to riding the test tracks with a harder base and different whoops, so every time I tried to go through these ones, they were so different, which made it difficult and unpredictable. I didn’t find a good flow in the Main Event, but got a good start. I think next week we will move in the right direction, especially with having one race under my belt, and P13 I think is not a bad start.” Results – 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Round 1 450SX Results – Anaheim I SX

        Defending MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado to open 2024 season with AMA Supercross cameo

        View Profile
        A two-week shakedown in Southern California training at RD Field is all it took for defending MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado to make the decision to try his hand at AMA Supercross, set to make a fascinating cameo appearance across the opening three rounds of the 2024 season.
        • MXGP World Champion to make AMA Supercross Championship debut in 2024
        • Partnering with the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team
        • Planning to line up in 450SX Class at Anaheim 1, San Francisco and San Diego
        That's right, our Spanish sensation is in for Anaheim 1, San Francisco and San Diego this coming January, equipped with the GASGAS MC 450F in what will be his first-ever American Supercross start – straight into the premier 450SX ranks on debut. And we're stoked to see it! Fresh from clinching the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship in the MXGP category, which was a milestone achievement for both himself and GASGAS with the Davide De Carli-managed squad, Jorge had expressed his lifelong dream of sampling the sport of Supercross – and potentially making a 450SX start! – in the United States. From there, accompanied by a blitz of media attention throughout his brief off-season excursion, the capabilities of the the talented 22-year-old were evident from the outset while applying his craft within the tighter confines of training on a full-scale supercross track layout. Together between Jorge, his regular Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team, it was decided that he will go on to contest the opening three rounds of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in a bid to gain experience via a series of gate-drops and race mileage in the U.S. during what will still be the Grand Prix off-season. Jorge Prado:   “Since I started riding my dream has always been to one day race in the U.S., specifically to race Supercross. I have watched it my whole life on television and always thought it must be great to race under lights with a huge crowd and atmosphere! And more specifically, it must be great to race at an iconic stadium like Angel Stadium. I was lucky enough in 2015, while visiting and training in the U.S., to go to Anaheim 1 – it was a great experience and made me want to try it even more. So given I won the MXGP title this year and am totally healthy and looking for a new challenge, I thought it was the perfect time in my career to come and train in USA properly to prepare for a few Supercross races. I don’t want to waste another whole year wondering if I could or should, so I am here and I am going to try it out. I’m really looking forward to it and am lucky enough to have the full support of my Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team back home with Claudio and Davide de Carli, and the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team here in the USA behind me.” Roger De Coster (Director of Motorsports, North America):   “The main goal for Jorge in 2024 is to defend the world title he earned this past season, but of course we are excited to see what he can do on a Supercross track. We all know that he is very talented, given he’s already a multiple times Motocross World Champion, having won in MX2 and being the current MXGP Champion. However, we also know that Supercross at the highest level is extremely competitive and to race with the top here requires a lot of toughness besides talent, so this will be a huge challenge for him. We wish him the very best and are glad that with the support of TLD GASGAS we are able to support his wishes to try Supercross!” Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager):   “Jorge fulfilled his dream in Europe to become MXGP World Champion this year and we are so proud of him. His desire now is to train in the U.S. and to try Supercross, because he hasn't had the opportunity until now and from our side he completely deserves it. We, as a team, along with Pit Beirer and Robert Jonas have been completely open since day one with Jorge about giving him the opportunity to race Supercross and we will support him from Europe! We can’t wait to see him line up at A1 as it’s important for him to race those first three rounds to clarify in his mind where his racing future is, as he’s still really young and can try it out. It’s also good winter training for him before the start of the MXGP season, where his goal is to defend his number one plate in 2024. Good luck, Jorge!” Following his scheduled three-round appearance in the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, Jorge will return to Europe and prepare for his MXGP World Championship defense, which will open at the MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina on March 10, 2024.

        GASGAS would like to thank Taddy Blazusiak for all his achievements – both as a factory racer and brand ambassador – and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Good luck, Taddy!
        • Polish star’s time with GASGAS comes to a close
        • Taddy proved a popular ambassador and successful factory racer
        • GASGAS wishes Taddy all the best for the future
        Joining GASGAS midway through the 2020 season, Taddy played a huge role in helping reshape GASGAS and spearheading our factory enduro efforts. His top-six hard enduro finishes in the 2021 season and the spirited battle for the 2022 SuperEnduro championship, including several podium finishes, were just a few highlights of his impressive time racing for GASGAS. Despite challenges, including an injury-hit 2023 SuperEnduro season, Taddy's drive and commitment never wavered as he battled through to clinch third overall in the final championship standings that year. As a rider ambassador for GASGAS, Taddy was instrumental in pushing the GASGAS identity, and played a key role in helping to shape GASGAS into the leading force it is today. Everyone at GASGAS wishes Taddy all the best for his future.

        SAM SUNDERLAND WITHDRAWS FROM RALLYE DU MAROC FOLLOWING STAGE ONE

        View Profile
        After putting in a courageous effort to complete the opening stage at the 2023 Rallye du Maroc, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland has made the difficult decision to withdraw from the event. Unable to race at 100% following his pre-race crash, Sam, with the support of the whole team, will now focus on getting back to full fitness before beginning to prepare for the upcoming Dakar Rally in January 2024. It’s been a challenging year for Sam. Following a highly successful 2022 season where he claimed his second-career Dakar Rally victory, the Brit went on to be crowned FIM World Rally-Raid Champion. But in racing, anything can happen, and the cards certainly didn’t fall Sam’s way in 2023. Heal up soon, Sam, and we’ll see you at Dakar ‘24.

        Andreas Hölzl – Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:   “This is for sure not the way we wanted to end the season with Sam, but as he’s still suffering from his pre-race crash, it was the right decision for him to withdraw after stage one. Everyone at Red bull GASGAS Factory Racing supports his decision and now Sam will rest, recover, and begin focusing on the upcoming Dakar Rally in January.”

        Ryder DiFrancesco to get on the gas in 2024 with Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing

        View Profile
        Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing has signed Ryder DiFrancesco for the 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) season, spanning the AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross Championships, as well as the high-profile SMX Finals series.
        • Ryder D is GASGAS-bound for 2024 onboard the MC 250F Factory Edition
        • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing lands talented teenage prospect
        • 2024 season will mark DiFrancesco's first in 250SX regional division
        Still just 18 years of age, Ryder D is regarded as one of the sport's finest young talents in U.S. competition, emerging from a highly-decorated amateur career into the professional ranks this year with immediate promise and a share of encouraging results.
        The 2024 season will see DiFrancesco line up for his rookie 250SX campaign – the specific region yet to be determined – when the gates drop on Supercross early next year, in addition to his second term of lining up outdoors in 250MX, and the SMX post-season.
        Max Lee, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:   "We're super-excited to have Ryder DiFrancesco join the team for the 2024 racing season. He has a lot of talent and a good work ethic, so I think he’s a great fit for the group and the GASGAS brand!"
        After beginning this year in Supercross Futures, Ryder went on to contest the entire Pro Motocross Championship, achieving four top 10 overall results in 11 rounds, and a season-best of sixth at Ironman Raceway's final round, which earned him 10th place in the standings.
        DiFrancesco continued that form at SMX Playoff 1 in Charlotte, where he finished fourth overall, and would eventually race to 12th position in the 250SMX Championship. Now, the opportunity to GET ON THE GAS arrives, and the teenager is eager to take on fresh challenges in a new environment, equipped with the razor-sharp MC 250F Factory Edition.
        Ryder DiFrancesco:   "I am very excited to make the transition to the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team for my first full professional season! I’m ready for new challenges and learning a new bike, which is the exciting part of what's ahead together."

        SIMON LÄNGENFELDER ENDS 2023 WITH A PODIUM IN GREAT BRITAIN

        View Profile
        The 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship reached a conclusion today and Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing ended the term in fine fashion, with more success in the MXGP and MX2 classes. The superb track of Matterley Basin in the United Kingdom hosted the grand finale, where Jorge Prado was able to celebrate his recent championship success.
        • Jorge Prado concludes title-winning term in MXGP.
        • Simon Längenfelder claims ninth podium of 2023.
        • GASGAS narrowly miss out on manufacturers title. 
        Simon Längenfelder showcased his brilliance aboard the MC 250F yet again – he stormed to pole position aboard his MC 250F and replicated that performance in the first MX2 moto today. A mediocre start made the second moto trickier for him, but he secured fourth place and second in the overall classification. The forty-three points gained today helped him jump to third in the final championship standings. Claiming a bronze medal is a phenomenal achievement, especially considering that he had to miss three of the events with an injury. Simon Längenfelder:  " I won the qualifying race and the first moto, but the second moto was not the best. To come back after injury is never easy, so I am happy that I did that and could take third in the championship. I am looking forward to the Motocross of Nations and then we will focus on 2024. " Jorge Prado entered the Grand Prix of Great Britain atop a wave of momentum and put that to good use in Saturday's qualification heat, as he claimed his eleventh pole position of the term. A fourth in moto one earlier today put him in a good position to maintain his podium streak, but a crash early in moto two put him in an impossible situation on the fast-paced layout. '61' salvaged eighteenth for tenth overall on the day. Crucially, he walks away from the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship as the undisputed world champion with more moto victories than anyone else. Mattia Guadagnini was unable to complete the final stop of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, unfortunately, following an incident in training. Jorge Prado:  " It was nice to race and not think about the championship! I was able to enjoy the moment. This season has been a dream come true. Thank you to the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing for all the hard work this year. We did this together. " Although the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship is over, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing stars will focus on the upcoming Motocross of Nations. Jorge Prado, Simon Längenfelder and Mattia Guadagnini will represent their respective nations in France on October 08. Results – 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, Round Nineteen MXGP – Overall

        Pierce Brown scores highest finish of SMX World Championship season

        View Profile
        Visiting the birthplace of Supercross, the Los Angeles Coliseum, the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team was looking for strong finishes to close out the SuperMotocross playoffs.
        • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing was a beehive of activity all day long as this is close to their home turf
        • Justin Barcia had a tough end to his ’23 campaign
        • Pierce Brown had his best race of the SMX Playoffs
        250 Pierce Brown stepped things up for the final round of the SMX Playoff, qualifying in third position, and setting himself with a great gate pick for the night’s racing. When the gate dropped for the first moto, he rounded the first turn in 13th aboard his MC 250F Factory Edition, picked off a few spots on the first lap, and powered his way up to eighth by the checkered flag. For the second moto, he was 11th around the first turn, and sixth by the time they finished the first lap, and fifth at the finish. That gave him seventh overall for the night, and 11th overall in the series. Pierce Brown:   “The last round of SuperMotocross is done and dusted. All around it was a pretty good day. I qualified good. In moto one I had a bad start, but I ended up eighth. In moto two I got a better start, and I ended up fifth so I was happy with that. I feel like I was riding good all day...I'm happy with it. I'm ready to take some time off and then get back to work. " 450 For Justin Barcia, his night was spectacular, but unfortunately, far too brief. Justin has had a string of great starts during the SMX Playoffs, and that continued in the Coliseum, as he powered his MC 450F Factory Edition into second as he rounded the first turn. He had made a pass for the lead on the first lap, but a hard crash immediately after that put an end to his night. He finished his season in seventh overall among the 450 class competitors.

          Justin Barcia finishes sixth in Chicagoland SuperMotocross

          View Profile
          The second round of the SuperMotocross Playoffs gave the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team a chance to rebound from a tough first round, and they found a very fast and flowing circuit at Chicagoland Speedway.
          • Double points meant double opportunity for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team
          • Justin Barcia scored a 4-10 for sixth overall
          • Pierce Brown tallied a pair of 11th-place finishes for 11th overall
          450 Once again showing starting prowess and the power of his MC 450F Factory Edition, Justin Barcia rounded the first turn in the top three. He briefly moved to second before being passed by a pair of riders who moved him to his eventual fourth-place finishing spot. In the second moto, he once again rounded the first turn in the top two, despite starting well on the outer half of the gate. Unfortunately, a crash in the sand section dropped him to 11th, and he was only able to pick up one spot before the finish. Still, his 4-10 moto finishes were good for sixth overall, and he currently holds down the seventh spot in the 450 standings. Justin Barcia:  “Chicagoland was a good day. I had good qualifying sessions, I was feeling good and had a good first moto. In the second moto I had a crash in the sand, and I was pretty stacked up from there, I couldn't really make any passes and struggled a little after that. That was a tough second moto. But the first moto was really good so we had a few positives this weekend and I'm looking forward to getting back to California, doing a little bit of work before the last race, and going out with a good last race at the L.A. Coliseum.” 250 For Pierce Brown and his MC 250F Factory Edition, his day was all about 11th. Two 11th-place finishes resulted in an 11th overall. Pierce Brown:   “I felt a little under the weather all day. I just didn't have what I needed, so we're just going to rest up and get ready for the last round."

After passing the first checkpoint as the seventh fastest rider, the Brit maintained his pace and reached the end of the 334-kilometer special just over one minute away from a top-five finish. Not bad at all after well over three and a half hours of racing.

          Up next is stage three. A looping, 268-kilometer special from the bivouac in Belen, it’s almost all in the sand too which is Sam’s favorite terrain. We know he’s going to enjoy it and as he’s setting off in seventh, he’ll have plenty of lines to follow, which in rally, makes the job just that little bit easier.

          Sam Sunderland:   “Another long day today and it was pretty physical out there. The stage had a mixture of things I love like all the sand sections, but also things I hate like the rocky riverbeds! Honestly, in terms of results, today wasn’t very special. I’m getting there slowly though and I’m still rebuilding my confidence after a difficult start to the year. I feel good within myself and my riding, so I just need to keep improving day by day.“

          Justin Barcia wraps up MX season with a top-five moto finish at Ironman

          View Profile
          The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team wrapped up a tough injury-plagued outdoor season at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana, with a goal of building momentum for the upcoming inaugural SuperMotocross playoffs.
          • Despite missing nine races, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia goes into the playoff races in the tenth overall spot; while Pierce Brown is the 15th ranked 250 rider after missing seven races
          • Justin Barcia had an 11-5 score at Ironman for seventh overall
          • Pierce Brown’s 17-10 moto scores gave him 13th overall for the day
          250 MX After qualifying just outside the top ten of the talent-laden 250 class, Pierce Brown’s first moto got off to a rough start when he went down with a cluster of riders in the second turn. After remounting his MC 250F Factory Edition, he made his way back to 17th. In moto two, he got off to a better start and was 14th at the end of the first lap. From there, he picked off four riders, making his way to tenth at the finish. Pierce Brown:   “The first moto was a little bit rough. I got tangled up with some riders after the start which was unfortunate. I had to start from basically dead last, and was able to make it up to 17th. Not a good moto, but I was happy with my riding. In moto two it wasn't a great start or a terrible start, but I was able to make some passes and ended up tenth. So, for how the last couple motos have been I'm pretty happy with how I rode in moto two and how it went so hopefully we're building some momentum for the SuperMotocross rounds." 450 MX In his third race back since returning to action, Justin Barcia qualified tenth aboard his MC 450F Factory Edition on the fast and flowing Ironman circuit. Unfortunately, a crash early in moto one dropped him deep into the 40-rider pack. He salvaged what he could for the moto by charging his way back to 11th at the finish. In moto two, a much better start had him running in the top four, and he dropped one spot to finish fifth at the checkers. Justin Barcia:   “I had a tough first moto. I got into a little pile-up and came back to 11th. It definitely wasn't happy with that. In the second moto, I had a decent start and rode really hard. I found some decent lines, had a good flow going, and ended up fifth. I was definitely happier with the second moto considering where I was at a couple weeks ago to now. Not bad, but I definitely have a lot of work to do. I'm looking forward to SuperMotocross and getting back to my winning self.” Next Event (SuperMotocross Round 1): September 9, 2023 – zMax Dragway in Concord, N.C.

          Justin Barcia gets back on the gas at Budds Creek

          View Profile
          The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team has been playing a bit of catch-up through the latter part of the Pro Motocross season since both Pierce Brown and Justin Barcia were injured and couldn’t put in a lot of work on bike setup before the team headed outdoors. But with a press day to experiment, and two solid motos for Justin, the weekend proved productive.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing used this round as a test session to get caught up on their setup for the remaining races in the outdoor season, as well as preparation for the upcoming SuperMotocross playoffs
          • Justin Barcia finished fifth overall with a 4-5 score
          • Pierce Brown had a tough day with crashes and finished with a 15-24 tally
          450 MX Considering that Justin Barcia was in only his second race back aboard his MC 450F Factory Edition since returning from injury, he put in an impressive ride in moto one. Justin was among the leaders heading into the first turn but slipped into third spot by the end of the first lap. Battling with other competitors throughout the moto, he dropped to as low as sixth place but worked back to finish fifth at the finish, hot on the rear wheel of the fourth-place finisher. In moto two, Justin was third off the line and made a great move into the second corner to nail down the second position. He stayed there for a couple of laps before slipping to third, where he remained for much of the moto as he battled other riders. With six laps to go, he was passed and moved to fourth, where he finished. Justin Barcia:   “It was definitely a more productive day here at Budds Creek. I qualified sixth after two good practices, and we kind of used this weekend as a testing session. It's hard coming back after being unable to test and do everything you need to do to prepare for the Nationals. Everyone has a lot of races under their belts, so we used press day as a test session, and then we changed the suspension going into the first moto. It worked out well for us today. We had two good starts, and battled up front in both motos. All in all I was extremely happy with where I'm at for not being able to train or anything. This is like only my fourth 30-minute moto since I started riding again, so considering that, I'm quite happy. We'll keep plugging along and working hard. I'm looking forward to Indiana and we'll keep building for SuperMotocross.” 250 MX With a deep and talented field, Pierce Brown was just outside of the top ten in the first moto aboard his MC 250F Factory Edition. But a bobble on lap two dropped him into the mid-20s for position, so the rest of the moto was spent working forwards to 15th. A tangle off the line in moto two put Pierce deep into the pack, and from there it was a battle to climb back to 24th. Pierce Brown:   “It was a tough day for sure. I qualified decent in Q1, and in Q2 I struggled. After that I just couldn't find my flow. In moto one I got a bad start and fell a couple laps in. When I restarted, I was in a pack of guys that weren't moving forward, and I couldn't move through them so it was tough. In moto two I tangled with a rider right out of the gate and I got the worst end of the stick on that one. It's racing. We'll bounce back next week at Ironman."

          It's back to business for Justin Barcia at Unadilla

          View Profile
          After being focused solely on the 250 class since the start of the Pro Motocross series, the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team team was pumped to have entries in both classes at Unadilla.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing crew was excited to welcome back Justin Barcia at the famed Unadilla course
          • Justin had a rough return to action, with a crash-caused DNF in moto one, and a battle through the pack in moto two.
          • Pierce Brown scored another top ten 250 overall with a 12-11 day
          450 MX After sitting out the first eight rounds of the Pro Motocross series following an injury late in the Supercross series, it was back to business for Justin Barcia at his “home” race in Unadilla. He showed off excellent speed early in the day as he qualified in fourth position aboard his MC 450F Factory Edition. Unfortunately, a crash in the first turn of moto one damaged his clutch lever, and the team opted to remove it. After another crash later in the moto, Justin opted to head back to the pits. After starting just inside the top 20 in moto two despite another tangle on lap one, Justin methodically picked his way to 14th, making the most of his race to prep for future events. Justin Barcia:   “The day started off really well. I was really having a good time and was going into the first moto with a lot of good vibes and good feels. Unfortunately, I got in a first-turn pile-up, and damaged my bike pretty bad. I tried to do a few laps but I ended up crashing again and had to pull her in and go back to the semi. So that was a shame for the first moto, not really the race I wanted coming back. In the second moto I had the far outside gate pick. I got off to a good jump, but pretty much had nowhere to go in the tight Unadilla first corner so I was pretty buried. I was charging through the third corner and got in another little pile-up and ended up going down. It was an extremely tough moto. That was my first 30 minute moto in a long time. So it was a tough day, but all-in-all it was very nice to be back at the races. We know we've got a lot of work to do and knew that this would be a good test for the future Supermotocross stuff. So we'll keep working and be back next week at Budds Creek.” 250 MX Pierce Brown ran inside the top ten for most of the first moto aboard his MC 250F Factory Edition before a crash late in the race dropped him to 12th. In moto two, he started in the low teens before eventually moving up to 11th. Consistency paid off, with an 10th overall. Pierce Brown:   “I had an all-right day, with tenth overall. I definitely want more. We struggled a little bit in both motos, just getting off the gate. I had to come from behind in both motos, especially the second one. In moto one I fell with a lap to go, so I lost some spots there. In moto two I had a charge. I made some pretty good passes with a couple laps to go to get myself in a better position. I'm happy, but I want more. We're going to push to build for the rest of the season." Next Event (Round 10): August 19, 2023 – Budds Creek Motocross Park in Mechanicsville, Md.

          Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing's Justin Barcia back on track for Unadilla

          This weekend's ninth round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Unadilla will see Justin Barcia make a welcome return to action with Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing, marking his first outdoor appearance of the 2023 season.
          • Justin Barcia will be back behind the 450MX Class gates at Unadilla
          • Final three rounds of Pro Motocross will lead into SMX Championship
          • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS thanks 250MX fill-in Caden Braswell
          Barcia, who was recently on location at the GASGAS Spice It Up Festival in Italy to help introduce the 2024 range, will be back on track riding his MC 450F Factory Edition across the final three rounds of the outdoor season and is excited to build momentum over the course of the next three weeks.
          Justin was initially injured toward the end of April in Nashville's AMA Supercross Championship round, with complications delaying his return. Despite sitting out the final stages of the 450SX season and missing the majority of Pro Motocross, the 31-year-old currently sits 10th in the combined SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) standings.
          Justin Barcia:   "It's been a process, for sure, a lot to think about. We're past the injury now after two surgeries, lots of training and a lot of recovery, so I'm definitely excited to come back at my home race in New York for the fans and myself, just to get out there. There are no expectations set because I've been off for a lot of months, so I just want to go out there and have fun and build. Obviously, as a racer, you always want to be competitive, but I just need to get back to the races and enjoy being around the team, as well as my family and friends there. Unadilla's going to be a cool race!" With Barcia lining up alongside 250MX team regular Pierce Brown this Saturday at Unadilla, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing would like to thank fill-in rider Caden Braswell for his efforts throughout the opening eight rounds of the series.
          Max Lee, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:   "We are very excited to have Justin Barcia back racing with us at Unadilla. It’s been longer than we all expected for him to be returning to the races, but we are as excited as ever to have him alongside Pierce Brown this weekend. Without a ton of time that Justin has had on the bike, it looks like he hasn’t skipped a beat. I’m excited to bring him back to his home MX race of the season and hopefully bring some more excitement as well! Caden will no longer be joining us at the races this season. The team is very thankful for the opportunity to work with him and for keeping us racing, since for the first six rounds, he was our only rider. We wish him the best in the next step of his career and hope he can keep improving. See you at the races!"

          Heading into round eight of the Pro Motocross season, the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team was looking to post some solid results ahead of a two-week break.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing crew was ready to rock in the Pacific Northwest on the famed Washougal circuit
          • Pierce Brown was in his second race back and turned in his best results of the season
          • Caden Braswell has moved to 11th in the overall season standings
          250 MX Pierce Brown was in his second race back since returning from injury and showed improved speed on his MC 250F Factory Edition. A 12th in moto one after a crash, and an 11th in moto two resulted in a tenth overall for the day. Pierce Brown:  “Not the best day, but we ran the pace for a little bit with the guys in the first moto. While in eighth or ninth I was behind Shimoda trying to match his laps and made a mistake jumping into the sand. I ended up crashing pretty hard and I ended up 12th. In moto two I think I ran in sixth for about half the moto. The track was gnarly today and it kind of beat me up. I was still shaken from the crash and ended up fading. I don't know what place I got, but I ended up tenth overall. Better than last weekend, but we definitely want more." For Caden Braswell, a 15-13 afternoon was good for 12th overall, and he boosted up a spot in the overall 250 series standings to 11th place. Caden Braswell:   “Washougal was better than last weekend but not where I want to be. Strengths were the end of the motos; I felt strong and my fitness was there. Overall, I just need to improve my qualifying and sprint speed. As always, thanks to the  Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team.

          Pierce Brown returns to action at Spring Creek MX

          View Profile
          It’s been a lonely summer for Caden Braswell for much of the Pro Motocross season, as the Floridian has been the lone healthy GASGAS Factory rider for much of the season. But the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team was at double-strength for Spring Creek MX, with the return of Pierce Brown to the lineup.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing was ready to take on the challenge of the sand whoops and hills on the Spring Creek course
          • Pierce Brown made Spring Creek his debut race of the Pro Motocross season after returning from injury
          • Caden Braswell was excited to not be the lone rider in the rig this weekend
          250 MX For his first race of the outdoor season, Pierce Brown picked a tough one. He was 11th off the line aboard his MC 250F Factory Edition, and he climbed to ninth at the finish. In moto two, he came off the gate well and was up to seventh place, before a crash and technical issue caused him to slip to 16th at the finish, leaving him 12th overall for his return to action. Pierce Brown:   “For the first race back at Millville the first race back I had some fun. I'm finally out here racing with the boys and the first moto was quiet but solid with a ninth. The second moto started a little better. That uphill triple is big. I tried it one time, cased it, and came to a stop. After that, I got to the top of the hill, tucked the front end, and fell. But after that, I got up and felt like I was riding really good. I caught back up to the pack that passed me. But overall, for the first race back it was a fun one. I get to go to Washougal next week, which is one of my favorite tracks on the circuit, so I'm excited for that one." For moto one, Caden was 13th off the line, and while he climbed as high as 11th during the moto in the highly competitive class, he eventually returned to 13th at the finish. During the second moto he battled inside the top 15, but a crash dropped him to 23rd in the moto, and 17th overall for the day. Caden Braswell:   “Out here at Spring Creek it was a beautiful day. God gave us some great weather this weekend. We had an awesome track, and the team did a great job. We had two bikes (on track) this weekend, which was awesome. It was nice to have a teammate. These were not the results I was wanting, but we'll come out swinging in Washougal." Next Event (Round Eight): July 22, 2023 – Washougal MX Park in Washougal, Wash.

          • Caden Braswell showed continued improvement his best pro finishes to date
          • Good news! The team is expecting Pierce Brown to be back in action next week
          250 MX Caden Braswell  and his MC 250F Factory Edition came into Southwick looking to continue the upward trajectory of his rookie season. When the gate dropped for moto one, he was in 16th position at the end of lap one, and he steadily worked his way steadily, finishing ninth by moto’s end. He backed that up with a 12th in moto two, giving him a solid tenth overall for the day, the first time he’d cracked the top ten overall. Caden Braswell:   “Out here at Southwick it was a fun one. I got to do some sand surfing and had a blast with the team. We got our best result of the season so far. I'm happy to be putting the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS machine in the top ten, but I'm hungry for more and super-grateful for the opportunity."

          Double podium joy for the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team

          View Profile
          The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team ventured to an all-new venue in Lombok, Indonesia, for today's round of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship. The man-made facility marked the conclusion of the Asian excursion and another successful race for the GASGAS duo; Jorge Prado and Simon Längenfelder got on the gas to gain trophies in their respective classes.
          • Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing finish the Asian adventure.
          • Jorge Prado extends his gap in the championship standings.
          • Simon Längenfelder climbs back on the MX2 overall podium. 
          Jorge Prado took full advantage of the Grand Prix of Lombok-Indonesia and added another two points to his championship advantage. Prado won the qualification heat, which has become a specialty of his, before really shining in the first moto today. '61' started third in the heat and put on quite a charge to claim the lead with just two laps remaining! It was a brilliant showing and backed up with a second in the final stint, which placed him second in the event's overall classification. Prado is one hundred and three points clear in the championship standings – eight rounds remain now that the eleventh fixture is complete. Jorge Prado:  " It has been a good weekend. We extended our championship lead as well, but the most important thing is that we are riding well. We won the qualification heat and moto one – it is always good to do that. I am really looking forward to the next two rounds that are coming up. I won Loket in 2021 and always enjoy Lommel. " Still less than two months on from the arm injury that he sustained in May, Simon Längenfelder impressed at the Grand Prix of Lombok-Indonesia. '516' pushed into fifth in moto one, despite a mistake, and shined in the second stint. Ending lap one in fourth, he charged up to second and was just seven seconds shy of the winner when the checkered flag flew. 5-2 scores put him third in the overall classification and helped him maintain eighth in the championship standings. Simon Längenfelder:  " It is so good to be back on the podium. Not many people expected this, including me! I was fifth in the first race and did not think about the podium after that. I was happy to stay consistent in the second race. Now we will work on the weekend off and keep getting stronger. " Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing will make the long trip back to their base in Europe now, before resetting and tackling round twelve of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship in Czechia.

          Braswell brings home season-best results at Thunder Valley

          View Profile
          Gravity has been extremely tough on the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team through the latter part of the Supercross season and during the start of the Pro Motocross tour, with the 250 duo of Michael Mosiman and Pierce Brown still on the mend. On the 450 side, Justin Barcia had intended on trying to return to action, but a setback with a cracked collarbone plate put him back on the sidelines. That left 250 rookie Caden Braswell as the lone team rider heading into Thunder Valley.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing was extra-lean, with a single 250 riders lining up
          • Caden Braswell scored his season-best by every measure…qualifying, moto finishes, and overall
          • Mastering the tough, extremely rutted track proved to be a good confidence booster for Braswell
          250 MX With Michael Mosiman still sidelined after a tough crash at Hangtown, and Pierce Brown still on the mend, it was up to Caden Braswell to hold it down for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team. Despite the extreme challenges provided by the Thunder Valley course, Braswell turned in his best results of the season. He bettered his previous best qualifying position on his MC 250F Factory Edition by six spots. He also improved his finish in each moto by several spots, scoring a solid 12-12 day for 12thoverall. In moto one he ran inside the top ten for nearly half the moto, giving him a better look at the pace of the front-runners. " I wasn't really happy with the results from Hangtown, so we worked hard this week and rode with some more confidence. I felt a lot more loose and free on the bike, and enjoyed the longer ruts here at Thunder Valley,” said Braswell. “I'm looking forward to some more good starts, more long ruts, and some good dirt at High Point."

          Hangtown tough on the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team

          The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team headed to California's Gold Country hoping to turn around their recent racing fortunes.
          • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing was running lean and mean again in Northern California with a 250-only roster
          • Michael Mosiman had a 14-40 day after a tough crash in moto two
          • Caden Braswell continued his four-race fill-in roll with the team
          250 MX Michael Mosiman was on home turf at Hangtown and he was looking for a solid result aboard his MC 250F Factory Edition. Unfortunately, a 14th-place finish in moto one proved to be the high water mark for him and the team, as a tough crash in moto two ended his day. Updates on his status for future events will be provided after he gets checked out by his doctors. The team’s other rider, Caden Braswell, tallied a 27-16 day for 19th overall. That matched his result from round one at Pala. "Out here at Hangtown, we had a progressive day,” said Braswell. “We've got some things to look back on, and also some good things to take away. My confidence is growing on the bike and with the team. I'm surrounded by great people and I'm looking forward to the third round in Colorado with a big old fire in my belly."

          Michael Mosiman returns to action at Pro Motocross season opener

          View Profile
          The 2023 AMA Supercross season proved rough on the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team rider roster, so it was a two-rider all-250 effort that lined up for the opening round of the Pro Motocross Championship in Pala, California.
          • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing 450MX regulars Justin Barcia and Pierce Brown continue to recover from injuries sustained late in the AMA Supercross Championship.
          • Michael Mosiman returned to action after sitting out much of the 250 East Supercross season
          • After previous success with the GASGAS amateur program, Caden Braswell joined the team for the first four rounds
          250 MX After injuries earlier in the season, Michael Mosiman was back in the saddle of his MC 250F Factory Edition, but still in rebuilding mode. He scored a 19th in moto one and made some adjustments for moto two and came home with a tenth-place finish. Michael Mosiman: “This was the first round for me after quite a long time off. It's been a lot of hard work to build back, and today was just another step in that process. I would have liked to finish better but there are some building steps and some things that we improved. We made big improvements to the bike in the second moto and I felt a lot more comfortable. That allowed me to put together clean laps. I'm excited for the future and to head to Hangtown and get after it.”
          Caden’s first crack at the Pro Motocross series resulted in a pair of 18th-place moto finishes in an extremely stacked field.
          Caden Braswell: "I'm super grateful for the opportunity. Pala was an amazing experience for my first Pro Motocross National. I'm absolutely thrilled to have done it with the Troy Lee Designs Red Bull GASGAS team. The team was amazing...super-hard working and encouraging. I'm disappointed in my results because I know the bike and I are capable of so much more. I'm going to keep my head up pulling into Hangtown and strive to do better."

          VIDEO: GET ON THE GAS AT THE SSDT!

          View Profile
          It was long, it was tough, it was incredible! The Scottish Six Days Trial was every bit the awesome spectacle we knew it would be. And for 2023 we captured all the action from the near week-long event, giving a detailed and in-depth GASGAS look at the iconic trial.
            Following GASGAS supported riders Jack Dance and our two visiting Americans Daniel Blanc-Gonnet and Josh Roper through the event, we also turned the cameras on Tom Minta and Michael Brown.

            Finishing up as the highest-placed GASGAS rider in an amazing third overall, former GASGAS factory rider Michael showed he’s still got the skills, putting in an amazing week-long performance to finish hot on the heels of the top two finishers.

            Fifth overall for GASGAS was Tom Minta. Top privateer one year ago in Scotland to earn himself a wildcard ride at the iconic Erzbergrodeo, this time around Tom rode his GASGAS to a super solid result, just two places ahead of up-and-coming young charger Jack Dance.

            Jack Dance:   “The SSDT is very physical across the moors, but my bike performed brilliantly. It’s only a little 125, but I’m so happy with how it performed in the sections. It’s so smooth, and you can give it some gas whenever you want to. I’m happy with my ride. It’s been incredibly slippery in almost all the sections. Overall, I’m very happy with where I finished. People tell you about the SSDT, but until you experience it, it’s just very unique and a really good trial.”

            Tom Minta:  “To be honest, I came to the SDDT this year with no expectations, just looking to come and enjoy it. I started off the week strong and I got to about Wednesday, I think, and I was sitting about sixth. That’s when I realized that I could do quite well. I had a solid day on Thursday, which pushed me up to fifth and I managed to hold on to that. If someone had told me I’d finish the week in the top five, I would have laughed at them. Overall, I’m incredibly happy with the performance I put in.”

            Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager:   “The Scottish Six Day Trial is an incredible event, something unique and very special to the sport and GASGAS. This year’s event was great – tough days of riding, great times, and some good weather, which is always welcome. Even without our TrialGP regulars Jaime Busto and Sondre Haga, it was great to see some really positive results for GASGAS. Michael is a rider that knows the Scottish event very well, and he delivered some great riding. As did Tom, Jack, and many others. For Jack, it was his first appearance, and it was surprisingly good as he was riding with a 125cc bike! For me he was the rider of the event! Congratulations, to all GASGAS riders that completed this special competition.” Click here to watch the full 2023 SSDT highlight edit on YouTube!

            Simon Langenfelder sidelined with an arm injury

            View Profile
            Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Simon Langenfelder sustained an unfortunate injury to his right arm in practice on Tuesday, May 09, and underwent surgery that night. The injury will stop him from building on the momentum that he gained at this past weekend's Grand Prix of Spain, where he stormed to 1-1 results on his MC 250F. Langenfelder is currently fourth in the MX2 championship standings, just four points from the rider in third, and was enjoying a consistent start to the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship. '516' had not fallen from the top ten in any of the motos and won three of the twelve stints that had been run. Those triumphs were a clear sign of his exciting progress in the MX2 division. The arm injury will, of course, sideline him. Further information on timelines is set to be published in due course. Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing wish the young star a speedy recovery. The team cannot wait to see him back in action aboard his MC 250F. Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager):  "Simon crashed in a normal training session yesterday, unfortunately, and broke his right arm. He immediately had surgery with Dr. Nannarini and his team last night. I cannot thank them enough! This is the worst part of the sport, but I am sure that Simon will come back soon and stronger."

            Simon Langenfelder sweeps the MXGP of Spain

            View Profile
            The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team has just completed their most successful Grand Prix of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, as Simon Langenfelder swept both MX2 motos aboard his MC 250F and Mattia Guadagnini scored a maiden podium in the MXGP class. The squad was "on the gas" in every sense of the word, as countless fans flocked to the Spanish fixture to catch a glimpse of Jorge Prado in action on home turf.  
            • Simon Langenfelder takes first Grand Prix victory of 2023.
            • Mattia Guadagnini puts MC 450F on podium for first time.
            • Jorge Prado maintains grip on red plate at home Grand Prix. 
            It had been over a year since Langenfelder last won a Grand Prix, but he was never going to be denied at the Grand Prix of Spain. It took no time at all for him to jump into the lead in the first moto and he controlled the race from that point on; eight seconds was his final margin of victory. The second moto was even more special, unbelievably, as he took the holeshot and led all laps en route to an advantage of fifteen seconds. The Grand Prix win – the second of his young career – catapulted him to fourth in the series standings. Four points separates him from the rider in third. Simon Langenfelder:  " A Grand Prix win is always so special! My first podium of 2022 was via 1-1 scores and the same has happened this year. That is always really nice! I am happy with my starts and that I stayed on top for the whole of both motos. Being the fastest is always nice. " Those who have paid close attention to Mattia Guadagnini's recent progress wouldn't be surprised by his strong showing on Spanish soil, as he has taken huge strides aboard his MC 450F in recent weeks. '101' started second in moto one and actually claimed the lead after a handful of laps – he led for six laps in the middle of the race before eventually settling for third. Guadagnini featured in the top three for the whole of moto two too, as he battled with the eventual Grand Prix winner before securing third again. 3-3 scores were enough for second in the overall classification, his first MXGP podium. Jorge Prado tied for third overall at his home Grand Prix, but the tiebreak meant that he was classified in fourth. Starting in the lower half of the top five in the first moto, he was very impressive as he sliced through the field and eventually took second place with just a couple of laps to go. The second moto was made trickier by an even worse start, unfortunately, but he did all he could and salvaged fifth at the checkered flag. 2-5 scores put him in fourth overall, as stated previously, and helped him maintain his grip on the red plate in the premier division. Six points is his current advantage. Mattia Guadagnini:  " What a weekend! I have been wanting this podium for a while because I could see that my speed was getting better and better. I need to thank the team for their support and sticking behind me. Both motos were really good today, with great starts, so I want to keep this up. " Jorge Prado:  " It was an okay weekend. My starts were not that good today, but I kept charging. I had really good pace in the first moto. My start was even worse in the second moto and it was hard to make passes – the track was very challenging. It was still a very special weekend, with the spectators, and I have the red plate heading into the next round, which is important. " It is time for Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing to return to their base now, as there will not be a round of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship this coming weekend.

            Barcia masters the mud in East Rutherford Supercross

            View Profile
            The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team had to wait out a lightning delay and deal with a downpour, but the results were worth it as Justin Barcia took the 450 main event win in extremely muddy conditions.
            • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team records its first main event win of the 2023 AMA Supercross season
            • Justin Barcia was fast in his home race, whether in wet or dry conditions
            • Pierce Brown finished 11th in the 250 East/West Showdown
            450SX Judging by the third place and second-place finishes at the previous rounds in Glendale and Atlanta, Justin and the team had high hopes heading into East Rutherford, NJ, located just outside New York City. Thunderstorms caused a delay for the scheduled start of the main events, and a steady downpour made a quagmire of the track. But after getting a strong start out of the gate, and sizing up the leader for the first six laps, Justin Barcia and his MC 450F Factory Edition took over the lead and stretched it to a 14-second advantage at the finish. Justin Barcia:   "I don't remember practice. I don't remember the heat race. But I remember that main event! I got out there and was battling with the boys, took the lead, rode away, and took the win. It was very special. The team crushed it, mud-prepped quick, and it was an awesome race. I don't really know what else to say because I'm very happy!” 250SX East/West
            For Pierce Brown and his MC 250F Factory Edition, the night was a bit more challenging. After qualifying fifth, and finishing fourth in his 250 West heat race in the dry conditions, things were looking good. Unfortunately, a midpack start, followed by a crash, resulted in an 11th-place finish. Pierce Brown:  “It wasn't an ideal night in New York. I did all right in the heat, with a fourth-place finish. We had a couple of hour delay before the main event. It rained hard, so the track was pretty wet when we got out there. I got off to an okay start...midpack. I was trying to go through the pack and collided with a rider about three or four laps into the race and fell. That set me back pretty far. I think I got up in last or second-to-last. After that I put a charge on and did all I could do and ended up 11th.”

            TADDY TAKES THIRD IN SUPERENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE

            View Profile
            It all came down to this! The fifth and final round of the 2023 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship was an absolute nail-biter with GASGAS Factory Racing’s Taddy Blazusiak overcoming the odds to bag third overall in the championship fight. Despite entering the season finale on the back foot, Taddy used his home round in Poland to his advantage on his EC 350F to finish on the box and with it, end the championship on the podium too!
            • Taddy on the box with third in Poland
            • EC 350F racer fights to the end for third overall in the championship
            • GASGAS wins SuperEnduro manufacturers’ title
            Taddy Blazusiak: “What a night! It was a tough battle the whole way and I gave it everything I could. Coming into the final race it was tight on points for third overall in the championship and I knew I had to send it! I was riding well and managed to make some aggressive moves to get up to second position. It’s been so nice to get third overall in the championship in what’s been a hard season. I came in injured and on the back foot, but we never quit. To help GASGAS take the manufacturers' award is pretty sweet too.”

            After a challenging four rounds racing his way back into shape following a wrist injury, Taddy found his best form when it counted most in Gliwice, Poland. Feeling sharp from the off, he was ready to fight tooth and nail for the final step of the championship podium with close rival Cody Webb.

            A great start to the night saw him come away with third place in race one. Putting in fast laps and being able to attack from start to finish, left him wanting more for race two. Always a difficult one to judge due to the reversed start order, Taddy got to work. Multiple battles saw him reach as high as second, before placing an eventual fourth.

            With it all to play for in race three, Taddy was on a mission to get the job done and take third overall in the championship. Straight out of the gate he was hustling hard and making up positions everywhere he could. With rival Cody Webb on his rear wheel, Taddy kept looking forward and charging. Moving up into second place and cheered on by his home fans, Blazusiak was in his element. Undoubtedly his best ride of the season, Taddy took his EC 350F to second place and with it took third overall in the championship chase.

            Despite at times this season feeling like luck was never on his side, Taddy always dug deep with true fighting spirit like only he can. Rewarded with a podium result on home soil and top three in the championship, Taddy's performance also helped to give GASGAS the top manufacturers' award in the 2023 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship.

            Time to roll out the ‘red’ carpet: GASGAS Factory Racing primed for MotoGP™ 2023

            View Profile
            As the clock ticks down and the revs climb towards the launch of 2023 MotoGP, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 have whipped away the covers from the GASGAS RC16 race bikes to face this year’s landmark FIM World Championship.
            • Unmistakeable red GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 livery unveiled for 2023 MotoGP frenzy
            • Pol Espargaro, Augusto Fernandez & GASGAS management give their views on the season ahead
            • Watch the launch video of the newest, youngest and coolest brand to hit MotoGP HERE
            The GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 team shredded slicks for the first time at the Valencia test in Spain last November and then several weeks ago at Sepang in Malaysia. Ahead of the final two days of pre-season prep work at the Algarve International Circuit in Portugal on March 11-12 (followed by the opening round of the 21-Grand Prix series at the same venue on the last weekend on the month), the team had the MotoGP paddock talking with their official presentation at the new Spanish GASGAS factory complex just outside of Barcelona. The party saw Pol Espargaro (31 years old, Moto2™ World Champion in 2013, 52 GP podium finishes and 15 wins in two classes) and Augusto Fernandez (25, reigning Moto2 World Champion, 20 rostrums and 7 victories in Moto2) star with the crimson GASGAS RC16 and a gathering of guests, media and GASGAS fans as the crew popped the corks on their maiden MotoGP tilt. Espargaro enters his tenth year of MotoGP having sprayed premier class podium Prosecco at least once in four of the last five seasons. He brings experience of having raced for two other manufacturers. He made his MotoGP debut with the Tech3 squad from 2014-2016. Fernandez is the sole rookie in the division but is floating on confidence after his ’22 Moto2 title success and has shown excellent signs of adaptation to the faster and more complicated MotoGP technology in the test outings so far. GASGAS is the most exciting and dynamic new brand in the 74-year-old championship and promises to lay thick rubber on the 21 circuits that makes-up a ’23 campaign with the fresh Saturday ‘Sprints’ format to be introduced. GASGAS achieved international recognition and distinction as a manufacturer of title-winning Trial machinery. The marque then quickly shook the establishment in AMA Supercross, MXGP, Enduro and the DAKAR rally in the last three seasons and blitzed the 2021 and 2022 Moto3™ series – thanks to the dominant Aspar Racing Team - with a total of 14 victories and the world title last autumn pocketed by rising star Izan Guevara. Pol Espargaro, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3: “I feel like I am coming back to my roots. With Tech3 and the new brand we have a GASGAS ‘mood’: friendly, close to people and we’re really hard workers, so I believe that if we fight and push together as a team we will be there. We will be right at the top. I think the potential is high on this bike. For sure we have a lot of work to do because the level in MotoGP right now is super-high but I think we can reach it. In Valencia for the first test I felt the DNA of the bike and when it matches your own DNA it makes you feel so good! The bike is almost ready to fight for something really great this year.” Augusto Fernandez, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 : “Well, I’m jumping into MotoGP with this confidence of being world champion and it’s good but honestly I don’t know what to expect in terms of positions. I’m looking forward to being competitive soon and trying to be in the battle with my teammate. I think I am facing the most important year of my career but I know I need to be patient. I am discovering everything that it means to be a MotoGP rider, a factory rider. But it’s good to see how many people you have behind you and not just your team; the whole factory that is waiting for you and your results. Portugal is coming soon and I’m really looking forward to it and it’s a dream come true: my debut in MotoGP. I honestly can’t wait.” Pit Beirer, GASGAS Motorsports Director: “When we first put that Moto3 GASGAS bike on the grid - with our fantastic partner in the Aspar Racing Team - nobody was even dreaming of a MotoGP team two years later but here we are with our new baby and our new brand. I feel we have a strong combination. You have Augusto, the young one who is world champion and is hungry, looking up to the big boys but then you have a guy like Pol coming back to the family who is a fighter and who motivates the whole team and who, of course, brings some really good MotoGP experience. I feel it is a super-strong team. It is a new direction for our friends Tech3, and in terms of the structure we combined the best of the best. We enjoy these kinds of partnerships because in the long-term they make you very successful. I feel it is an exciting time, and with these two riders and this new brand; I feel we are ready to go.” Hubert Trunkenpolz, Member of the Executive Board : “If you want to create awareness for a motorcycle brand then MotoGP is the right platform. It’s where you reach the most people globally and where we can make GASGAS known and make the GASGAS brand more popular. If we also look to the GASGAS brand values then its young and vibrant and it’s clear that MotoGP with its demographics is also the right platform or us. Having two Spanish riders with our old friend Pol and with a rookie – Augusto – I think it is a perfect fit. In the future the GASGAS range will be enlarged and expanded with street motorcycles and MotoGP is preparing the ground for these products that will come year-by-year.” Hervé Poncharal, GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3, Team Principal: “I have been in MotoGP for quite a while and I’ve experienced quite a few seasons and every new season is always a very exciting moment. To do it with GASGAS means a lot for me because I have been following this brand since it started in Trial – I love the name – and I’m excited. We always believe that experience and youth is a good mix. I am pretty sure that Pol is happy to be back and having Augusto with us is something very exciting because it is always perfect to receive the rookie rider as a Moto2 world champion. I am very happy, very proud and we are looking forward to creating positive vibes. Red vibes!”
