Never one to rest on his laurels, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Andrea Verona has decided to switch things up in 2023 and contest the intensely competitive Enduro2 class as he sets out to defend his EnduroGP World Championship title. The young Italian will ride the awesome GASGAS EC 350F as he takes on a new challenge for the new season.
Andrea Verona: “I’m really looking forward to getting started with the 2023 season. I have wanted to try out a new challenge and move to the Enduro2 class for a while now and after winning the E1 and EnduroGP classes last year, it gives me the perfect opportunity. My feeling in the GASGAS Factory Racing team is great – we’re both putting in 100 percent at every race to be the best and that’s just one of the reasons why I decided to stay with the team for another two years. The bikes are great, the EC 250F obviously took me to two E1 championships and the EnduroGP world title, and I think the EC 350F will suit me perfectly, too. My goals now for the 2023 season are to improve my speed in all conditions and try to win even more racing days than last year. Obviously, the main goal is to take the EnduroGP victory again.”
Since joining GASGAS Factory Racing at the beginning of the 2021 racing season, Andrea has dominated the Enduro1 class of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship. The ever-smiling 23-year-old finished on the podium at every round in 2021 and went on to smash that record in 2022, where he won all but one day of racing in the E1 category. Moving up to the hotly contested Enduro2 class, AV99 will be full gas as he fights to defend his overall EnduroGP crown and claim his first career E2 world title. Go get ‘em Andrea!
