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.

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

Ver Perfil
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!"

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

Ver Perfil
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

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

    Ver Perfil
    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."

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

    Ver Perfil
    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."

    DANIEL SANDERS OVERCOMES TOUGH PENULTIMATE STAGE OF DESAFIO RUTA 40

    Ver Perfil
    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

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

    Ver Perfil
    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."

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

    Ver Perfil
    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

    Ver Perfil
    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."

    JUSTIN BARCIA FIFTH IN SALT LAKE CITY 450SX SUPERCROSS FINALS

    Ver Perfil
    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)

    FOURTH IN DENVER SUPERCROSS A CONTINUATION OF JUSTIN BARCIA TURNAROUND

    Ver Perfil
    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!"

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

    Ver Perfil
    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

    Ver Perfil
    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."

      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.

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

      Ver Perfil
      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.

      JUSTIN BARCIA BATTLES TO TOP 10 FINISH IN TECHNICAL SEATTLE SUPERCROSS

      Ver Perfil
      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."

      PIERCE BROWN KEEPS CHARGING WITH P4 FINISH AT INDY TRIPLE CROWN

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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

      Ver Perfil
      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.

      SAM SUNDERLAND WITHDRAWS FROM RALLYE DU MAROC FOLLOWING STAGE ONE

      Ver Perfil
      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.”

      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

      • 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."

      Pierce Brown scores highest finish of SMX World Championship season

      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

        Ver Perfil
        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."

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

        Ver Perfil
        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

        Ver Perfil
        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

        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!"

        Pierce Brown grabs tenth overall at Washougal MX

        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

        Ver Perfil
        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.

        Braswell breaks into the top ten at Southwick

        Ver Perfil
        The rough and sandy track in Southwick, Massachusets, is always a challenge for both man and machine, which makes it perfect for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team.
        • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing hit the hallway point of the Pro Motocross season at the toughest track of the year
        • 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

        Ver Perfil
        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.

        Braswell brings home season-best results at Thunder Valley

        Ver Perfil
        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."

        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

        Ver Perfil
        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."

        Barcia masters the mud in East Rutherford Supercross

        Ver Perfil
        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.”

        JUSTIN BARCIA COMES OUT SWINGING AT ANAHEIM SX SEASON OPENER

        Ver Perfil
        The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team came to the AMA Supercross Championship season opener with their usual high hopes, a full off-season of preparation, and of course, Troy’s artistic touches for the rider’s helmets, bikes and gear. Racing aboard the all-new 2023 MC 450F and MC 250F Factory Edition bikes for the first time, both Justin Barcia and Pierce Brown came away with their fair share of ups and downs in Anaheim, California. 
        • The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team came in hot for the start of the 2023 season!
        • Barcia brings the speed with an amazing holeshot in the 450 main
        • Brown unfortunately suffered a race-ending crash in the 250SX West heat race
        450SX
        Justin Barcia and Anaheim 1 are generally a solid match, and he’s had plenty of success (including wins and podiums) in previous years at the season opener. Another win looked like a definite possibility once again, as he quickly grabbed the holeshot aboard his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition and jumped into the early lead. Unfortunately, after leading the first three laps ahead of last year’s champ, he had an off-track excursion that dropped him to the 11th spot.

        Justin Barcia:  "A1 is a wrap. The day started off pretty well. I felt good in the first practice but I struggled a little bit in the next two, just with feeling comfortable with the track, because it was very tricky with a lot of square edges and things like that. I made a big change before the heat race and unfortunately went in the wrong direction. So I went back to my base setting for the main event. Pretty much ripped the holeshot, led a few laps, made a huge mistake, and had a crash. I worked my way back up to like seventh and had another crash. So it was a difficult main event. We'll take a few positives from the day. We had a good start, and we had speed, we just need to keep it on two wheels and keep it simple and we'll be good. But the speed is there, the fitness is there, and the bike's there, so I'm happy with that and definitely put this result behind us and move forward."

        250SX West
        Pierce Brown started off the day on the gas, qualifying in the third position. But a hard crash in his heat race proved to be the end of his evening. After being seen by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical crew, he was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. The good news is that he’s already been released, and is headed home.

        GASGAS FACTORY RACING FIRED UP FOR A SUCCESSFUL DAKAR!

        Ver Perfil
        Tomorrow, December 31, 2022, GASGAS Factory Racing’s reigning Dakar champ Sam Sunderland and teammate Daniel Sanders will finally begin the highly anticipated 45th edition of the world’s toughest rally-raid – the infamous Dakar Rally. As always, the event’s traditional opening Prologue – the fast, short, 11-kilometer sprint – will be used to determine the starting order for the 14-stage event with the first true special stage then taking place on January 1, 2023. It’s set to be a seriously tough race this time around, but for our talented duo, all their hard work with the team has long been completed. Good luck, guys!
        • Sam and Daniel excited to start the 2023 Dakar Rally!
        • Both riders feeling good after the pre-race shakedown
        • The 45th edition of the Dakar begins tomorrow with the opening Prologue
        Yesterday’s pre-Dakar shakedown allowed Sam and Daniel to break in their RX 450F rally bikes in readiness for tomorrow’s Prologue. Ending the session feeling confident ahead of the upcoming challenge, both riders are in high spirits and more than ready to get down to business.

        Already sensing the excitement that builds in the lead up to the Dakar and with high hopes of securing back-to-back wins, Sam Sunderland will soon begin his 10th start at the infamous event. As a two-time winner and having placed third overall on two other occasions, not to mention his multiple stage wins, the Brit has all the tools he needs to once again find success at the toughest rally-raid of them all.

        After his incredible Dakar debut in 2021 where he placed a stunning fourth, Daniel Sanders confidently entered the 2022 edition with high hopes of claiming a spot on the podium. Topping the timesheets on two of the first six stages to lie third overall entering week two, he clearly indicated his ability, until an unfortunate crash and serious elbow injury on stage seven ruled the hard-charging Aussie out of the race. After rehabbing for almost a year, Sanders is back and ready to roll up his sleeves and get stuck into Dakar 2023.

        Today in the bivouac, things are pretty quiet as Sam and Daniel calmly finish off their final preparations in readiness for tomorrow’s Prologue. Once that’s complete, their focus will switch to taking on the first eight stages of the event before enjoying the mid-race rest day on January 9. After that, six more demanding days of racing remain as they head towards the finish line in Dammam on January 15.

        Sam Sunderland:  “All the hard work’s been done and we’re pretty much good to go! I can’t wait to get stuck in and I think the first week will be really tough. It’s looking pretty technical and rocky but the second week is more in the dunes, which I prefer. There’s no feeling like preparing for the Dakar. Every year you’re excited, nervous, and all the rest of it. It’s such an incredible race and I can’t wait to get out there and get this thing started.”

        Daniel Sanders:  “It’s been a long time since I raced and a long time recovering from my crash last year but we’re here and pretty much ready to go. My elbow isn’t quite 100% but once I get out there riding, I know it’ll be just fine. It’s probably going to be the toughest race of my career having been off the bike for so long, especially with there being two more stages this time around, but I’m pumped to be back racing. I’ll be looking for a steady start to the race with the ultimate goal of reaching the finish line. It’s a modest goal but it’s been a long road to get back racing and I can’t wait to get back out there in the dunes and be racing with the boys again.”

        BARCIA, BROWN AND MOSIMAN ARE BACK IN ACTION WITH 2023 TROY LEE DESIGNS/RED BULL/GASGAS FACTORY RACING TEAM!

        With the all-new 2023 MC 450F Factory Edition and MC 250F Factory Edition bikes, and a new face at the helm of our team, GASGAS Factory Racing is on the gas for a third season of SX/MX racing in the U.S.! Proudly welcoming Max Lee on-board as the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager, our returning three-rider lineup of Justin Barcia, Michael Mosiman and Pierce Brown are fired up for more in 2023.
        • Barcia, Mosiman and Brown are back for 2023!
        • Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing welcomes Max Lee as Team Manager!
        • Olly Stone steps into Crew Chief role after a decorated career as race team mechanic
        Never one to back down from a challenge, Justin Barcia is back on the hunt for a 450 title this season, racing aboard the all-new MC 450F Factory Edition in 2023. Charging his way to six podium finishes in the 2022 AMA Supercross Championship, Barcia heads into the new season with his eyes on the prize in the 31-race SuperMotocross World Championship. We’re stoked to welcome back two heavy hitters in the 250 division as Michael Mosiman and Pierce Brown return to action aboard the all-new MC 250F Factory Edition. As a three-year veteran on the team, Mosiman is well-versed in the 250 class. Coming off his first career Supercross win in San Diego last season, the Northern California native is ready to stake claim atop the podium with a consistent season ahead. Also returning for year three with the squad is Utah native Pierce Brown, the third-place finisher in the 2022 250SX Eastern Championship. Brown ended the season on a high note with two consecutive podium finishes and he looks to build upon that momentum as the gate drops for a new year of racing. Justin Barcia:   “I’m so amped for this upcoming season, we’ve got more races with more opportunities to win! I’m excited about our new bike and going racing with my wife and baby boy it’s going to be a fun season!” Michael Mosiman:   “With the added three rounds of the SMX, I think it will be very important to stay consistent and to come into each round fresh – mentally and physically. I’m looking forward to the new season.” Pierce Brown:  “I’m stoked for the 2023 season coming up. I feel really good and I’m loving the new bike! Excited to go racing.” With longtime SX/MX Team Manager Tyler Keefe taking on a more strategic role as Troy Lee Designs’ Director of Motorsports, GASGAS Factory Racing is excited to welcome Max Lee as Team Manager, along with Oliver “Olly” Stone as Crew Chief.
        By leveraging his years of experience in motorsport management, Keefe will continue working closely with the team to prepare for a successful race season in 2023 and beyond. With an extensive background with Troy Lee Designs, Max Lee will step into the role of Team Manager, overseeing the team and commercial responsibilities. As Crew Chief, “Olly” Stone will take on a more comprehensive technical role, overseeing the day-to-day operations of testing and preparing the bikes for racing.   Max Lee, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager:  “I would like to thank Roger De Coster, Tyler Keefe, my father [Troy Lee], and everyone else who has guided me and given me this opportunity. Words cannot express how excited I am to work full-time for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team, it is a dream come true for me and my family. I am thankful to be surrounded by great people and I’m looking forward to an amazing season with this team.”
        Troy Lee:  “Beginning with our very first 250 team to building the TLD/GASGAS 450 and 250 team to what it is today, I would like to express great thanks to Tyler Keefe for his 11 years of hard work and success, and we look forward to his contributions as Troy Lee Designs Motorsports Director in the next chapter of his professional career. I’m also really stoked to have Max Lee as Team Manager of the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team. It’s a very proud moment for me and I know this new leadership team is going to help a lot in his guidance.
        It’s going to be an exciting season in 2023 with three world-class riders returning to the lineup. Everyone has been putting in the work and the new Factory Edition bikes are looking good! We can’t wait to get the season kicked off at A1!”

        STRONG RIDE FOR TADDY AT SUPERENDURO ROUND ONE

        Ver Perfil
        Battling hard right to the finish, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Taddy Blazusiak kicked off the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship with a fighting fourth at round one. Narrowly missing out on a podium result at his home race, the Polish star still tied on points with third place to ensure a solid start to the new season.
        • Taddy charges hard for fourth at home race in Poland
        • GASGAS EC 350F rider second fastest in the SuperPole hot lap
        • A difficult track made for tough racing on the night
        Looking to get his FIM SuperEnduro World Championship off to a solid start, Taddy Blazusiak put in a strong showing on home soil to take a close fourth overall at round one in Poland. A difficult track with soft dirt made for tough racing on the night in Krakow. However, the multi-time world champ was eager to make the best of it.

        Rolling out for the SuperPole hot lap, Taddy showed he had pace and his lines dialed in by setting the second fastest time of the night, earning himself two extra championship points.

        With confidence building, he wanted to turn that speed into three solid results. However, a crash on the opening lap of race one put him on the back foot. In spirited style, Taddy set about charging his way forward and gave everything to finish fourth.

        With the customary reversed start order for race two, Taddy looked to fight his way to the front early on. Slipping past his rivals, he got his GASGAS out front, much to the roar and delight of his home crowd. Battling back and forth with eventual race winner Billy Bolt, the Polish star put on a show. Dropping back to second, a small mistake during the closing laps saw him slip to third at the checkered flag.

        Hoping to make amends in the third and final Prestige race, a crash on the opening lap dropped Taddy down the order. Knowing a place on the overall podium was hanging in the balance, the EC 350F mounted rider pushed hard to regroup. Racing his way from eighth to fourth, Taddy tied for third overall, but agonizingly just missed out on that home-round podium result he wanted.

        With the opening round of the season done, Taddy now looks ahead to round two in Germany on January 7, 2023.

        Taddy Blazusiak:  “It was a tough race tonight. The dirt was so difficult to ride. Big ruts formed on the jumps, and it was hard to make consistent clean laps. In race one I used a lot of energy going from last to fourth and my arms pumped up at the end of that race. They stayed really tight for the rest of the night, and I was fighting against myself at times. I’m disappointed not to finish on the podium at home, but tying on points for third is still a good result for the championship. My speed and pace is good, so I’m confident for more in Germany.”

        GASGAS sign-off sizzling 2022 world championship year with FIM Awards bow

        Ver Perfil
        The spoils of being the best! GASGAS was recognised at the 2022 FIM Awards in San Marino as the brand officially wrapped its most successful racing year. The brand now has 34 titles in the bag! The #1 rider, the #1 team, the #2 rider and 10 wins from 20: 2022 Moto3™ was a blast for the GASGAS Aspar Team. Both the crew and the company were rightfully honored for their supremacy at the FIM Awards that took place last weekend on the Italian peninsula and with other GASGAS’ world champions: Sam Sunderland and Andrea Verona. Moto3 winner Izan Guevarra (7 wins and 13 podiums from the 20 rounds) took to the stage to accept his FIM gold medal status. The Majorcan had classified ahead of countryman and teammate Sergio Garcia (3 victories and 10 rostrums) in the standings and ruled the Moto3 division despite the often chaotic, unpredictable and incredibly close nature of the category. Guevara claimed races in Spain, Catalunya, Germany, Aragon, Japan, Australia and Valencia; owning the ‘quartet’ of all Spanish rounds. The title was the first in the principal MotoGP championship classes for the fast GASGAS ‘red’. Aspar crew claimed the Teams and Constructors crowns to-boot for a dominant display. The achievements marked a milestone for the brand on the road. On the dirt and Sam Sunderland aced his second DAKAR Rally title at the beginning of 2022: another ‘first’ for GASGAS atop the podium at the ball-crunchingly tough annual race. The Brit then doubled-up with the FIM RallyGP World Championship during the summer. Across Enduro trails it was Italian Andrea Verona who excelled to lay waste in both the EnduroGP and Enduro1 World Championships. Andrea’s competitiveness extended to the International Six Days Enduro – the oldest event in the FIM canon - and he also helped GASGAS to the Enduro1 Manufacturers gold plate.

        GASGAS TEAMS UP WITH SONDRE HAGA FOR 2023 TRIAL2 CHAMPIONSHIP ASSAULT

        Set to compete as part of the all-new 2023 GASGAS Factory Racing trial team, reigning FIM Trial2 World Champion Sondre Haga will ride GASGAS TXT GP machinery in Trial2, X-Trial, Spanish Trial Championship, and other select trial events during the next two seasons. Signing with GASGAS Factory Racing for 2023 and 2024, the young Norwegian’s #1 priority will be to battle to successfully defend the Trial2 title he spectacularly won this season. Welcome to the team Sondre!
        • GASGAS Factory Racing signs Sondre Haga
        • Norwegian star set to defend Trial2 World Championship
        • Haga joins Jaime Busto in all-new GASGAS trial team line-up
        Claiming the coveted FIM Trial2 World Championship at the final round of the 2022 TrialGP World Championship in Italy back in September, Sondre put the finishing touches to a super-successful, and hugely consistent season. Never off the podium during the first four rounds of the series, at round five he took his first win of the year to set himself up perfectly for the season finale. Doing exactly what he needed to do, and securing one more podium visit for good measure, Sondre lifted the Trial2 world title in style.

        Remaining in the FIM Trial2 championship for 2023, the calm and calculated young Norwegian will also help GASGAS compete for the manufacturers title, as well as staying super busy throughout the year with participation in X-Trial events, and the Spanish Trial Championship.

        Sondre Haga: “The GASGAS Factory Racing trial team is one of the biggest and most professional in TrialGP, so to be a part of it is really something very special for me. I’m really motivated and looking forward to working with new people, and to do all I can to successfully defend my Trial2 World Championship title. Of course, 2022 was a great year for me, and I know that winning again certainly won’t be easy. But winning is the absolute goal and with the support of all the GASGAS team I am confident that I can do it. Being a fully supported factory rider is something very special, something very new to me, and something that really motivates me. I can’t wait to make my first appearance for GASGAS and then keep working towards being ready for the 2023 Trial2 World Championship.”

        Albert Cabestany, GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager: “I’m thrilled to announce Sondre as our Trial2 rider for 2023. This year he really showed himself as a very talented and motivated rider, and together with Jaime Busto, we not only have a completely new-look GASGAS Factory Racing team for 2022, but also two exciting young riders that I know are completely focused on success. For me it’s a kind of dream team, and I’m really looking forward to working with them both. Sondre will have a very busy schedule for 2023, competing in the FIM Trial2 World Championship, X-Trial, the Spanish Trial Championship, as well as the Trial des Nations, and other one-off events. As well as being super-busy year with many competitions, Sondre will also help GASGAS with one of our goals of linking competition with the ongoing development of our production bikes. I’m sure that with Sondre and Jaime, we will have a very productive season next year.”

        GASGAS GOES BIG WITH TWO FACTORY EDITION MOTOCROSS MODELS FOR 2023!

        Ver Perfil
        One year on from launching our first-ever race team replica dirt bike and we’re back with more! And not just one, but two factory edition motocross models. Built for maximum on-track performance, the all-new GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition and MC 250F Factory Edition bikes have been designed and developed together with GASGAS Factory Racing, so you know they’re going to be good! Both feature brand-new motors, new frames, and are packed full of the latest technology, with pretty much everything else being improved over the outgoing generation. So, if you’re a racer focused on winning, you’re going to need one. It’s as simple as that!
        • GASGAS unveils two awesome TLD Race Team replica motocross bikes
        • New models developed with GASGAS Factory Racing for maximum performance
        • Each bike built to the highest spec with race-tested Technical Accessories
        The MC 450F Factory Edition benefits from a new cylinder head and CP piston – a potent combination that gives a boost to overall performance and amplifies the on-track experience for all riders. With the motor now lighter than ever, as well as being repositioned within the all-new frame to improve mass centralization, the bike’s already agile handling characteristics are taken to the next level.

        As the newest and freshest model added to the GASGAS line-up, the MC 250F Factory Edition is pretty much an all-new dirt bike. Headlining this awesome bike is the powerful, high-revving, motor that’s super compact to save weight. Together with the new frame it makes carving through corners so, so easy. The brand-new motor features a new cylinder, cylinder head and piston, crankcases, and gearbox, which all work as one to make the MC 250F Factory Edition quite possibly the very best 250cc 4-stroke motocrosser out there.

        Rewarding riders who really push the pace, the WP Suspension fitted on the Factory Edition models is set up firmer to favor aggressive riding. Up front, the WP XACT front forks feature a new hydrostop for improved bottoming resistance while the slightly slower rebound setting takes the sting out of heavy landings. At the rear, the WP XACT shock is all-new, better performing, and easily adjustable by hand for quick and easy trackside changes.

        Welcome to GASGAS Factory Racing Jaime Busto! GASGAS is super pleased to announce that 2022 TrialGP runner-up Jaime Busto will join the squad for at least two years and compete in both the indoor and outdoor world championships, as well as his own Spanish national championship and selected other events.

        • Busto to compete onboard new 2023 GASGAS TXT GP 300
        2023 is looking good for the GASGAS Factory Racing trial team! As part of the ongoing strengthening of the team, we've signed the highly skilled and flamboyant Spaniard Jaime Busto. The 24-year-old has already enjoyed a massively successful career, having claimed both Youth and Junior titles in his national Spanish championship, and an FIM Junior World Championship in 2014.

        Over the past six seasons in the TrialGP World Championship, Jaime has finished inside the top three no less than four times, as well as claiming four overall top-three championship results in the intense X-Trial indoor series. Completing the 2022 TrialGP season as runner-up, the wild Spaniard is looking to go one better in 2023 and sees GASGAS as the team to make it happen! Jaime will start his contract with the team from December 1, 2022.

        Jaime Busto:   “I’m so excited to join GASGAS for next season. It’s a brand with Spanish heritage and that’s really important, but also the whole structure and dynamic of the team looks really strong. The bike itself is great and I know the plan is to keep on developing and improving all the time. For 2023, my goal is to improve on my results from this year. I want to be more consistent and in the fight for the win at every single race. The whole GASGAS vibe fits my style really well, and I’m hoping that by working hard together we can achieve some greats results next year.”

        Albert Cabestany, GASGAS Factory Racing Trial Team Manager:   “It means so much to sign a rider like Jaime Busto to the team. Obviously, he is capable of securing top results and so our plan is to give him everything he needs to do that. But Jaime also fits the GASGAS brand perfectly, and together I truly believe we can achieve great things. His results in 2022 have been excellent – third overall in X-Trial and second in TrialGP – and so looking ahead to the next two seasons, our plan is to keep on growing the team structure to be even stronger and enable Jaime to continue fighting for world championship titles. Jaime joining the team is just one part of a big plan to put GASGAS right at the top of the trial world, and I can’t wait for the new season to begin.”

        RED BULL GASGAS FACTORY RACING FIRED-UP FOR 2023 DAKAR RALLY!

        With GASGAS Factory Racing securing official backing from Red Bull ahead of the 2023 season, our rally heroes Sam Sunderland and Daniel Sanders are all-set to take on the 2023 Dakar Rally! Ready to compete on their Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing machines, newly crowned FIM World Rally-Raid Champion Sam Sunderland will be fighting to defend his Dakar title, while young Aussie charger Daniel Sanders will be looking to prove a point and once again stamp his mark on the world’s toughest dirt bike competition.
        • Red Bull backed GASGAS Factory Racing set for 2023 Dakar Rally
        • Sunderland and Sanders to compete in their second Dakar for GASGAS
        • 45th Dakar Rally begins December 31 in Saudi Arabia
        It’s been a year of mixed fortunes for our heavy-hitting rally stars but as 2022 draws to a close we’re gearing up for the big one again – the Dakar Rally. With both Sam and Daniel showing immense pace in Saudi Arabia last January, each has experienced a very different season this year, but both are 100% committed to enjoying the 45th running of the iconic race and ultimately doing their very best.

        Sam’s 2022 Dakar Rally victory was the start of a hugely successful year for the Brit. Following on from the Dakar, he headed to the United Arab Emirates for round two of the world championship and promptly stamped his authority there with another convincing win.

        A top-five result at the Rallye du Maroc put Sunderland within reach of his second career world title. And with another strong showing at the final round in Spain, where the RX 450F racer rode to another calculated fifth-place finish, the job was done and Sam was crowned 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Champion.

        Now, already deep into his training program and focused on the major task ahead of him – his Dakar Rally title defense – Sam is fully aware of the challenge that awaits. But as always, the two-time Dakar winner will give his absolute all and fight hard for the win at the world’s toughest rally.

        With unquestionable speed, especially over the dunes seen on the first week of the 2022 Dakar Rally, Daniel Sanders was well on course to fight for a podium result. Disappointingly, the crash that ruled him out of the event resulted in a fractured elbow and wrist – injuries that unfortunately took longer than anticipated to heal. Despite requiring several extra surgeries throughout the year, Sanders is now close to full fitness and once again has his sights on Dakar success.

        Earning two stage wins at the 2022 event, Daniel comes into the upcoming Dakar with more experience, a better understanding of what to expect from the punishing terrain, and also the skills and confidence required to open stages during the two-week race. With very little pressure on his shoulders, Sanders will be aiming to shake things up in his own unique way when the start flag drops in less than two months’ time.

        Sam Sunderland: “This season has been incredible. To get the double – the Dakar win and the world championship – has been amazing. It’s taken a lot of work, both by me and the whole team, but it’s paid off massively. Now, going into the 2023 Dakar I know exactly what it takes to win. When I first won the race back in 2017, I put myself under a lot of pressure to win again a year later. The 2023 race is looking to be one of the toughest ever and I’m under no illusion as to what that means. My mindset is a little different now – my plan is to go out there and enjoy it, take each day as it comes and try to maintain a good pace throughout the whole event. Hopefully near the end of the two weeks we should be in a good place to battle for the top positions once again.”

        Daniel Sanders: “After this year’s Dakar and of course crashing on stage seven, it’s been a long year of surgeries and trying to get my body back in shape. I had a lot of bad luck with my recovery and things not healing up so good, but thankfully it’s all looking good now and I’ve been able to get back on the bike. It’s going to be a challenge going into one of the toughest races in the world without much time on the bike. The focus up to now has been to get my elbow strong enough to make it through Dakar and the rest of the 2023 season. The team have been great, and I’m getting stronger all the time. It’s a little daunting with the Dakar being my first race back after a season off, but my plan is to take it day-by-day and hopefully build things up as the event goes on. It’s a long race, but the goal is to definitely be well in the fight at the finish.”

        Norbert Stadlbauer – GASGAS Rally Team Manager: “Our GASGAS riders have got some wings on their RX 450F rally bikes for next year, courtesy of Red Bull. We’re really happy to intensify the relationship with the brand heading into the 2023 season. Sam Sunderland is coming off an incredibly successful year of racing, but is already training hard and looking forward to defending his Dakar title. Daniel Sanders has been off his bike through injury for most of the year, but the young Aussie is hungry for success and will give 100% at Dakar.”

        Robert Jonas – Head of Motorsports Offroad: “The GASGAS rally project has been a huge success right from the start. And now, after an incredible 2022 season that saw Sam claim victory at the Dakar Rally as well as being crowned world champion, it’s only fitting that the team will now enjoy additional backing from Red Bull. With two incredibly talented riders in Sunderland and Sanders we have a squad that are motivated and highly capable – a great mix of experience and enthusiasm. We’re fully expecting the team to challenge for the win once again at Dakar and wish everyone involved all the very best.”

        The 2023 Dakar Rally starts December 31, 2022, and covers 14 stages through the desert of Saudi Arabia before ending on January 15, 2023.

        2023 MotoGP™ is a go! GASGAS on track with Valencia test

        Ver Perfil
        Tech3 GASGAS Factory Racing rolled out of a MotoGP pitbox for the very first time today with a busy, sunny and fascinating first ‘look ahead’ test towards the 2023 world championship! Valencia’s blue skies were the perfect ceiling for Pol Espargaro and Augusto Fernandez debut ‘Get on the Gas’ experience. Spanish brand, Spanish stars, Spanish circuit: there was a big and celebratory Iberian flavour to GASGAS’ debut at Valencia and where Moto2™ world champions Pol Espargaro (in 2014) and Augusto Fernandez (crowned only 48 hours previously) took to the track to get acquainted with the fetching bikes in black and red testing livery. After his first run, Espargaro was gesturing wildly and tapping the fuel tank of the bike; #44 was obviously pumped to feel the full potential of the GASGAS MotoGP package. Pol logged 75 laps and the 16th best time by the end of his first day of work with the crew. Fernandez’ normally wide grin was stretched to the absolute limit after his maiden blast of MotoGP power. The 2022 Moto2 #1 used all of Tuesday (79 laps) to scratch new boundaries around the Ricardo Tormo Circuit and offer a few pointers towards his preferences and settings for the race bike. The first dance was brief but fully blurred! GASGAS will now accelerate back in the factory to chisel the newest version of the Grand Prix prototypes for next year. MotoGP gets a three month break before reassembling at Sepang in Malaysia on February 10th-12th for more testing ahead of the longest ever season on record. Augusto Fernandez : “It’s been an awesome day. I have been working hard to get used to all the new things. The GASGAS is very different to a Moto2 bike and there are a lot of electronics and things to understand. We didn’t change much. We just went step-by-step and did laps and laps and laps to get familiar with what we have. For sure I need to train in a different way this winter because the bike asks different things of the body! We’ll have to focus on that. MotoGP is, for sure, more demanding. Anyway, I’m happy to have the feedback from the bike and to get my first impressions. I cannot wait until the next session already.”   Valencia Official testing times   1. Luca Marini (ITA) Ducati 1:30.032 2. Maverick Viñales (ESP) Aprilia +0.225 3.

        GASGAS waves goodbye to 2022 in championship winning style at Valencia

        Ver Perfil
        After 20 races through every corner of the globe, the 2022 Valencia Grand Prix marked the end of an incredible season of racing, which witnessed GASGAS dominate Moto3 and finish the year with a 1-2 championship finish.
        • Izan Guevara rounds out an incredible championship winning Moto3 term, with his seventh win of the year and fourth on Spanish soil, while Sergio García completes a GASGAS podium lockout in 3rd.
        • Jake Dixon charges through the field in Moto2; recovering to 7th position after dropping back to 23rd and claiming a top-six championship spot. All while Albert Arenas also blasts to 5th place.
        • GASGAS finishes a dominant year in Moto3 totaling 10 wins with 22 podiums, delivering the rider, constructor and team championship titles, while also enjoying 6 podiums in Moto2.
        What began with nerves and hope in the heat of Qatar, finished up with record breaking wins and titles on home soil! To say it has been an incredible rollercoaster of elite-level motorcycle Grand Prix racing is an understatement. 20 rounds and thousands and thousands of white-hot competition by GASGAS brought home not only a dominant 1-2 in the Moto3 riders championship with Izan Guevara and Sergio García at the bars of their rocket-like GASGAS RC 250 GP, but also a slew of points and titles. By winning 10 races and featuring on the podium 22 times, GASGAS also sealed their place at the top of the Constructor and Team standings by some impressive margins. In the Team standings in particular, GASGAS Aspar Team trounced the nearest competition by 200 points. To make matters sweeter, Izan Guevara delighted the home fans at Ricardo Tormo with a lights-to-flag victory at the 23-lap showdown. After locking in his fifth pole position of the year, Guevara stretched out the field from the front - towing a chasing Deniz Öncü with him. The pair streaked ahead, with only Sergio García managing to stay in touch by a handful of seconds. Lap by lap, Guevara held the lead in fine style, and after defending a last lunge Öncü, the 18-year-old from Majorca took his seventh win of the year. It also meant Guevara has also won all four Spanish races of the season. Sergio García made it double delight by racing a stoic final Grand Prix in 3rd position. The 19-year-old from Burriana crossed the line with a 6.5 second deficit from the leading pair, to seal his 10th podium of the season - and also his final race in the class. Huge celebrations between both riders, a pit board emblazoned with Grazie Nano for García, and a gold race helmet for Guevara were the highlights of the final round of an incredible final Grand Prix. In Moto2, celebrations were not quite as loud, but deserved nonetheless. Jake Dixon raced through a tricky weekend in Valencia. While the weather fluctuated from gusting winds through Friday, colder track temperatures on Saturday and then optimal conditions on Sunday, Dixon worked hard with the Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team to dial in his race machine. Starting from P15 Dixon initially struggled at the start, dropping to 23rd briefly. However with a blistering race pace in hand - which was faster than many of the riders ahead of him, Dixon fought back into the top-seven, finishing just 0.7 seconds from 6th placed Manuel Gonzales. What’s more, Dixon ended the season inside the top six in the championship on 168.5 points. Teammate Albert Arenas delighted with a solid ride from P11 on the grid into 5th. The result gives Arenas his second-best finish of the year (having previously finished 4th at the San Marino Grand Prix earlier in September). Arenas also closes his 2022 Moto2 account in 12th position in the championship. With a record-breaking season in the books, the celebrations can begin - before looking ahead to go FULL-GASGAS again in 2023! #11 - Sergio García: “The feeling today is incredible - second in the world championship! I’m really happy with that! The race itself was really fast, and today I pushed as hard as I could, but I didn't have any more to give. I’m happy for my family and all the people that come to support us. A big, big thank you to everyone, my team, and especially my Father who is always there.” #28 - Izan Guevara: “It was an amazing feeling in the race. I think we had incredible pace alone at the front. I pushed really fast in the final laps, and it was incredible to battle to the finish. I want to say a big thanks to my team for their work throughout the whole season. I’ve now won all four races in Spain - as well as the championship - which is just an amazing way to finish my time in the Moto3 class. A perfect race today, and now I will just enjoy the time with my family and team! Thank you!” #75 - Albert Arenas: “After a couple of weekends where we’ve worked hard we finally got a decent finish here today and it was special to race in front of family and friends. I’ve learnt so much this year – these years in fact with the Aspar Team – and we can look forward to a good dinner together tonight. I’m satisfied to finish the season in this way today; it leaves a good taste in the mouth.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “Definitely not the race I was expecting. On the second lap I made a false neutral and went back to 23-24th and had to come back through. I reached 7th but had lost around 12 seconds. Without this I think we could have made the podium today. I did all I could do.”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 20: 1.  Izan Guevara (GASGAS) 23 Laps; 2. Deniz Öncü (KTM) +0.062, 3.

        GASGAS FACTORY RACING’S SAM SUNDERLAND CROWNED 2022 FIM WORLD RALLY-RAID CHAMPION!

        Ver Perfil
        What a year! Starting in January with a stunning victory at the Dakar Rally, GASGAS Factory Racing's Sam Sunderland has today become the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Champion! Doing the double is an incredible achievement, and thanks to Sam and the whole team, they have delivered the first world title for GASGAS in rally competition.
        • Sam Sunderland is the FIM World Rally-Raid Champion!
        • GASGAS celebrates its first world rally-raid title
        • Sam and GASGAS Factory Racing end the season in style!
        Sam Sunderland:  “Amazing! It’s been a crazy year with the Dakar win and then winning in Abu Dhabi, but then we had a big gap over the summer. We were back in action for the last round in Morocco but that one was tough as I hurt my wrist in a crash before we even started. But with the championship on the line, I had no choice but to push through it and my result there really made things easier for the final round. I had a couple of close calls yesterday and after that, and knowing that getting on the overall podium would be almost impossible, I kept things super steady. I’m really grateful to have the GASGAS Factory Racing team behind me, it’s been an amazing year, and I know we’re all looking forward to celebrating this one!”

        As racing seasons go, it couldn’t really have gone much better for Sam Sunderland. Kicking off 2022 by winning the biggest race of them all, the Dakar Rally, there was no better way to start the year. And with his stunning victory, Sam took an early lead in the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship.

        Round two, the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, was up next and the GASGAS Factory Racing star’s winning ways continued. Riding a faultless race and still stoked on his Dakar win, the Brit claimed his second victory on the bounce to further extend his points lead at the top of the world championship.

        After a couple of cancellations and postponements in the racing calendar, Sam didn’t line up for FIM World Rally-Raid Championship duty again until the Rallye du Maroc in early October. In what was perhaps his most crucial result of the season, Sam overcame the discomfort of a pre-race crash to put in a gutsy performance and place fifth overall to maintain his championship lead.

        Heading into this year's final round, the Andalucia Rally, Sam needed just three points to be crowned world champion. But knowing how quick things can change in racing, the Brit left nothing to chance and clocked the fastest time in the Prologue. A runner-up finish on stage one continued his promising start before the second day of racing was cancelled due to bad weather.

        A couple of mistakes on the penultimate stage and an unfortunate time penalty ruled out any chance of ending the season with a podium result. But knowing that he just needed to complete the final stage to be crowned champion, Sam did exactly that to lift the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship trophy surrounded by the entire GASGAS Factory Racing team.

        Congratulations, Sam, let the celebrations begin!

        Malaysian magic for García in Moto3™ and Dixon in Moto2™

        Ver Perfil
        The 2022 Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit saw a GASGAS double podium across Moto3 and Moto2, with Sergio García and Jake Dixon battling to third place in their races respectively.
        • Sergio García grabs 3rd in Moto3 to extend an eight point advantage in the battle for the runner-up slot for 2022. Moto3 champion Izan Guevara finishes 12th.
        • Jake Dixon takes his sixth podium of the season - finishing 3rd - while Albert Arenas holds station in 13th
        • Just one Grand Prix remains in ‘22 - setting up a thrilling Valencian showdown; where GASGAS looks set to finish the season in epic style on home soil across the Moto3 and Moto2 standings
        From the fresh winds of Phillip Island to the pressure cooker 36°C humidity of Sepang; the 2022 Grand Prix season’s final trilogy of races has, and is set to be, nothing short of a roller coaster for GASGAS. What’s more, with the champagne spray only just drying after Izan Guevara locked in the 2022 Moto3 title last time out, it was time to go racing again in Malaysia; and then look ahead to the final flag at Valencia. Better still, the Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Moto3 squad holds an enviable position in all of the championships available. Notwithstanding Izan’s incredible title success, GASGAS leads the Constructor standings by a significant 47-point margin, and also enjoy a massive 306 point lead in the Team contest. What’s more Sergio García is in prime position to lock in second place in the Moto3 rider table to make it a historic GASGAS 1-2. García's blistering 3rd at Sepang, which the 19 year old rider battled hard for, over the Malaysian weekender, was the perfect step in the right direction for the team’s total domination of the Moto3 classifications. Over an edge of the seat 17 lap race, García maintained his position as one of the leading riders, shuffling between fifth and first place multiple times per lap. The ultimate aim was to finish ahead of his nearest championship rival Dennis Foggia - who only managed 6th place. Meanwhile 2022 Champion Izan Guevara looked set to finish the penultimate Grand Prix of the year in awesome style - until a frightening incident on lap 14 unseated him and pushed him down the order. A small mistake from rival Ayumu Sasaki, caused a sudden cut in acceleration out of the exit of turn 14, causing Izan to take avoiding action and swerve off track. Although the heroic save from Guevara could easily qualify for one of the recoveries of the season, it meant Guevara missed out on the opportunity to take his 7th win of the year. In Moto2, Jake Dixon lined up on P4, opting to miss morning warm up due to the ever changing wet-dry-damp conditions. Dixon made a ballistic start, initially circulating in third. Despite slipping to fifth by the mid race distance, Dixon turned up the heat on lap nine; taking out six-tenths of a second over fourth placed Augusto Fernandez. A relatively muted race for the majority of the 18 lap distance, exploded with a handful of corners remaining. Championship challenger Ai Ogura crashed out while making a late brake lunge for the lead, gifting Dixon a welcome 3rd position after he passed Augusto Fernandez. While it was all-action up front, Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2’s Albert Arenas rode a stoic race from P13 lights-to-flag. After 19 hard fought weekends, the final Grand Prix is set to go live on the 6th November with the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana. #11 - Sergio García: “I felt really good on the bike this weekend, but at the end of the race I think my speed at the end of the straights was really bad unfortunately. It was really difficult; I pushed as hard as I could but I think it was impossible for me to win the race today. I gave it absolutely 100% - and even though I didn't win, I can be happy in some ways because the points are important for the championship. Let’s keep working and let’s keep improving!” #28 - Izan Guevara: “Crazy race and we made a great start but there were a lot of passes and changes in rhythm. I tried to keep the gap and the distance with the riders in front and everything was going smoothly, then on lap ten I started to get faster and returned to the lead even though the tires were obviously not as good as they were at the start of the race. With five-six laps to go Sasaki made a mistake, I think he missed a gear, I almost crashed into him and it was a close one. Luckily, I could continue and saved something from the race. We’ll look to Valencia now and try to achieve the target that I put into place yesterday!” #75 - Albert Arenas: “That’s a wrap for the Malaysian Grand Prix and some more points to take home. It’s not really what we want but it was difficult today because I couldn’t really find any feeling with the rear tire. It’s like there was no grip at all, even though the bike felt great under braking and corner entry. A weird feeling because the rear was so loose, like we were riding on water. Anyway, all the points count.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “It was a crazy race right? I let them go at the beginning, and then slowly tried to catch them back up. I think I left it too far initially though, and used too much energy. Unfortunately for Ogura; he went down on the last lap, so that meant I got on the podium. People can see that I fought hard for every position I got - this one is for my darling wife and my baby-on-the-way; I love you both!”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 19: 1. John McPhee (Husqvarna) 17 Laps; 2. Ayumu Sasaki (Husqvarna) +0.048, 3. Sergio García (GASGAS)  +0.146 , 12. Izan Guevara (GASGAS)  +9.148   Moto3 Championship Standings - After Round 19: 1.

        CALCULATED RIDE FROM SAM SUNDERLAND ON PENULTIMATE STAGE OF THE ANDALUCIA RALLY

        Ver Perfil
        Back to full-throttle rally-racing action today following yesterday’s unfortunate stage cancellation, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland has safely completed the penultimate special of the Andalucia Rally with the 11th fastest time. Now, with just one stage remaining, the Brit is on the cusp of claiming the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship and Dakar Rally titles in the very same seaso
        • British rally star delivers calculated ride on penultimate stage
        • Sunderland on the verge of lifting 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid title
        • Just one more day of racing remains at the Andalucia Rally
        Sam Sunderland:   “It was great to be back out there racing today although with the early morning fog we had we were all a bit worried about another cancellation. But it soon burned off and then it was go time. It was a long day today. I was on my own all day and I did have a couple of scary moments out there, so I slowed things down a little. There’s a lot more to lose than gain here so I settled down and rode with a little more patience. But now we have one day to go and we’re in a really good place to get the championship done.”

        As the second rider to enter the penultimate stage after his impressive runner-up finish on stage one in Spain, Sam was on the gas through the early part of today’s 333-kilometer special. But after a couple of close calls, and knowing the enormity of what’s at stake, Sunderland wisely backed off the throttle just a touch to complete the longest timed stage safe and sound and ready for the final day of racing.

        All that now lies between Sam and lifting the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship trophy is one more special stage. At just 100 kilometers, it sounds like it’ll be a sprint to the finish, but with all the changeable terrain and weather Sam’s experienced this week, it’ll be anything but simple.

          SAM SUNDERLAND KICKS OFF ANDALUCIA RALLY WITH A SOLID RUNNER-UP FINISH

          Ver Perfil
          One stage down, three to go! Placing second on the opening stage at the Andalucia Rally, Sam Sunderland was on the gas from the moment he entered the 315-kilometer special. Navigating with precision through the rocky tracks of southern Spain with one eye on the ultimate prize - the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship trophy - Sunderland delivered a strong result to kick off the final round in the best way possible.
          • Sunderland second-fastest through Andalucia Rally stage one
          • Series leader delivers solid result on technical opening special
          • British racer moves one day closer to world championship glory
          Sam Sunderland:  “That’s stage one done and out the way. After winning the prologue yesterday I chose to enter the stage in 13th but unfortunately it was a little dusty out there. I thought after the rain we had recently it was going to be perfect conditions, but I guessed wrong there. After about 30 or 40 kilometers I found a gap and got into a rhythm, and it was pretty good overall. It was an intense stage, in and out of olive trees and the terrain was tricky to read, but yeah, overall, we’re one step close to getting it done.”

          After dodging camels in Morocco at the previous round of the FIM World Rally-Raid Championship, Sam Sunderland was today dodging olive trees on stage one at the Andalucia Rally. As winner of yesterday’s prologue, Sunderland opted to set off as the 13th rider into the opening special in a bid to follow in the wheel tracks of the leading riders and deliver a winning result.

          Expecting pre-event rain to have had more of an impact on track conditions than it actually did, Sam soon found himself riding in dust. But once he’d picked off a few rivals and found some clean air, the Brit was able to put the hammer down and work his way up the leaderboard, delivering a near-perfect performance and posting the second-fastest time.

            • Jorge Prado, Mattia Guadagnini and Simon Langenfelder to return.
              The knowledge underneath the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing awning is only going to grow in the coming months. Claudio De Carli is set to oversee the on-track efforts at GASGAS, as well as KTM, in his new position as the Motocross Race Director.

Davide De Carli steps into the position of Team Manager at Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing and, in addition, Peter Tillerkvist's set to become the team's Technical Co-ordinator. Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing will field the same three riders in 2023. Jorge Prado and Mattia Guadagnini (MXGP aboard MC 450F machinery) will be joined by Simon Langenfelder (MC 250F) beneath the team tent when the new season begins. The 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship calendar starts with the Grand Prix of Patagonia-Argentina on March 12. Robert Jonas (Head of Motorsports Offroad):  "Following a successful season in the FIM Motocross World Championship, it is brilliant that we have been able to make additional steps forward beneath the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing awning. The GASGAS team consists of some of the most brilliant minds in the Grand Prix paddock and the riders will benefit from this for years to come. I want to thank all of the staff involved for getting behind the plan and how we will head into the world championship in the coming years." Claudio De Carli (Motocross Race Director):  "Pit proposed this new role, reconstructing the motocross division in the KTM group. It is a real pleasure to be able to co-ordinate the job of two guys who have been under my guidance for years: My son, Davide, and Tony Cairoli. Davide has helped me in the past two years and I think that he is now ready for this new commitment. The group is ready to restart – we are already working here in Rome. We have a second base in Belgium, which is very important, and we are planning for the new season with great enthusiasm. I really want to thank Pit, Robert and the entire KTM group." Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager):  "I am super happy to be able to fill this position. It is an absolute honor! I have been working alongside my father for many years now and think that this is the perfect time to step up. I am motivated for the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship and excited to work with the incredible people that I have by my side. We are a strong team and will bring home good results."

              SAM SUNDERLAND EYES 2022 FIM WORLD RALLY-RAID TITLE

              Ver Perfil
              This is it, the final round of the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship is about to kick off and GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland is on the cusp of becoming a rally world champ for the very first time! All that separates the Brit from clinching the title is finishing the Andalucia Rally – a four-day event in the heart of southern Spain – where he needs a minimum of three points to lift the championship trophy.
              • Sam Sunderland back to full fitness and ready for Andalucia Rally
              • Reigning Dakar Champ sits on a healthy lead heading into the final round
              • GASGAS Factory Racing star needs just three points to become world champ!
              Sam Sunderland:  “It’s the final round this week and I can’t wait to get started. It’s been a long but really good season so far and I’m excited for the Andalucia Rally. It’s a lot different to all the other rounds with no sand dunes and a lot of slippery trails, so it’ll be a different challenge for sure. At the last round in Morocco I had a very minor injury holding me back after a small crash prior to the race. I hurt my hand but it’s been checked out and it’s all fine and 100% now so I’m ready for a good race here in Spain. We’ve been testing on similar terrain in the build-up to this race and I’m feeling confident. The goal is pretty clear, I just need to score the few points needed to win the world title so I’ll be looking for a smooth race to get the job done without any drama.”

              Fighting through a little discomfort last time out at the Rallye du Maroc, Sunderland put in a solid effort to place fifth overall and collect vital championship points in the process. In doing so, the RX 450F racer extended his lead in the series heading into this week’s final round – the Andalucia Rally in Spain. Now back firing on all cylinders, Sunderland is quite rightly confident of securing the three points needed to be crowned 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Champion!

              The Andalucia Rally is in many ways a unique fixture on the 2022 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship calendar. No sand dunes, or camels to dodge, just plenty of rocky tracks to navigate with pinpoint accuracy. And with only four timed specials, it’s the shortest event in terms of duration and distance covered with just over 1,000 kilometers raced against the clock. The Prologue kicks things off on Wednesday October 19 before the serious racing starts the following day with the fourth and final special scheduled for Sunday October 23.

              Good luck Sam, you’ve got this!

              GASGAS Guevara rules the world in 2022!

              Ver Perfil
              Izan Guevara travelled to the other side of the globe to sit on top of the world when the 18-year-old from Majorca wrapped his – and GASGAS Motorcycles – first FIM Grand Prix world championship in road racing.
              • Guevara stamps a sensational second season in Moto3™ with Aussie GP victory and the Moto3 title at Phillip Island
              • The teenager grabs his sixth victory from eighteen rounds by just a few tenths of a second after a four-way slugfest for honors
              • Guevara still has the chance to raise his season stats of 11 podium ‘walks’ and four Pole Positions in the final two rounds of the MotoGP™ series
              • #28 says his hot mid-season streak of 6 trophies on the bounce was the key: “Six races in a row on the podium; that was the time when I thought ‘we can get this’.”
              The superb GASGAS Aspar Team painted the 2022 Animoca Brands Australian Grand Prix red with Izan Guevara taking the flag - and the Moto3 crown for the year - and teammate Sergio Garcia grabbing 3rd place and rising to 2nd in the standings. The Spanish crew then toasted their spoils by painting Phillip Island crimson! Both Guevara and Garcia – the rampant ‘G-G’ for GASGAS – have won and led the ’22 Moto3 standings during eighteen rounds and eight months of racing on at least four continents. It was Guevara though, the impressive rookie in 2021, that showed rapier raw speed and then added to his skill set with maturity and consistency this term, who pushed ahead and remained error-free, often delivering big results when the pressure cooker was turned up to ‘11’. As if to prove his excellence, Guevara swept to another checkered flag in a tense tussle with Deniz Öncü, Garcia and Ayumu Sasaki on Australian soil. “Incredible! Winning the world championship here by taking the race; it’s something brutal!” he shouted afterwards. “It’s been an awesome season. It started in a tricky way but we regained ground and made it happened and right now I still can’t believe we did it.” “Someone asked me what I was thinking about when I crossed the finish line and I cannot say!” he smiled. “It was a mental ‘explosion’. I was screaming on the bike. It was a big release and very cool to celebrate with my ‘double’ Nico [Terol, 2023 Team Manager and current coach]. It’s been a lot of work and sacrifice from numerous people to get here.”

              GASGAS FACTORY RACING’S ANDREA VERONA SIGNS OFF 2022 SEASON WITH ANOTHER WINNING RIDE IN ENDURO1

              Ver Perfil
              And that’s a wrap on Andrea Verona’s incredible 2022 season! One day on from lifting the coveted overall EnduroGP crown for the very first time, the super-smooth Italian delivered his final winning ride of the series. Delivering a near dominant performance in Enduro1 to top the class, he also placed third overall in EnduroGP.  Bravo, Andrea, let the celebrations begin!
              • Verona signs off 2022 with another winning ride in Enduro1
              • Season ends with EnduroGP podium result for Andrea
              • Double enduro champ on the gas throughout final day of racing
              Andrea Verona:  “It’s been an amazing weekend here in Germany and a great way to end the season. Winning the title yesterday was the ultimate goal for myself but also the team this year, and what we achieved hasn’t really sunk in yet. The season ended today with another great day on the bike. Third in EnduroGP and first in Enduro1, so I’m happy to finish with more strong results. With the team we’ll enjoy the moment now, take some rest, and then begin preparing for 2023.”

              Even with both titles wrapped up, Verona is a true racer and lined up for day two in Germany intent on capping his incredible season with another victory. And that’s exactly what he did! Chalking up his 13th Enduro1 day win from 14 days of racing this year, the EC 250F rider very nearly delivered a perfect winning season in 2022, such was his dominance in the quarter-liter category.

              With his FIM EnduroGP World Championship trophy safely packed away, Andrea was focused on victory in the EnduroGP class. Challenging for the overall win all day, the 23-year-old would ultimately place third to once again highlight his incredible speed and consistency - the two traits that unquestionably helped him secure his maiden EnduroGP title with a day of racing to spare.

              And now, the off-season. Certainly deserving of a well-earned rest along with GASGAS Factory Racing after what was a truly historic year, Andrea will now enjoy a little downtime before beginning to prepare for his EnduroGP title defense in 2023.

                Izan Guevara is the 2022 Moto3™ World Champion!

                Ver Perfil
                GASGAS on the podium in Moto3 and Moto2 in Australia, and a Moto3 championship title in the bag; does it get any better than this? Izan Guevara wins and secures the riders’ title while Sergio García finishes 3rd. In Moto2 Jake Dixon takes a cool fifth podium of the year.
                • Izan Guevara secures the 2022 Moto3™ Riders’ World Championship title two races before the end of the season. The first for GASGAS in MotoGP™!
                • Guevara wears the crown in dominant style by winning the 2022 Australian Grand Prix ahead of teammate Sergio García, who finished third.
                • GAVIOTA GASGAS ASPAR TEAM World Champions (164 points lead). GASGAS leads Constructor ranking with 41 points (50 max in two races to go)
                • In Moto2 Jake Dixon scores a fifth podium of the season in 3rd while teammate Albert Arenas finishes 14th.
                He was the 2019 European Talent Cup champion, the 2020 JuniorGP World Champion and now Izan Guevara is the 2022 Moto3 World Champion! Amidst the stunning scenery of southern Australia, and racing on what is considered by many to be one of the finest motorcycle race circuits in the world, Phillip Island, Izan Guevara made his mark on the history books. 6 victories and 11 podiums meant the 18-year-old Majorcan was able to wrap up the 2022 Moto3 title, two races before the end of the year. Over a 23-lap race which saw a white-hot battle between four leading riders - covered by just seven hundredths of a second - Guevara emerged on top and sealed his championship challenge in commanding style. Ultimately Guevara’s rivals, including his own Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Moto3 teammate - Sergio García - had no answer for a blistering final breakaway lap at the end of the race, and a new champion was crowned! In Moto2, Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team rider Jake Dixon yo-yoed through the standings throughout the Australian Grand Prix weekend. Dixon initially posted fastest on Friday, but then grip issues during Saturday qualifying saw the British rider line up on Sunday in P14. Keeping his head down, Dixon rode a strategic 25 lap race to work his way back up the field to take a decent third place podium. Teammate Albert Arenas progressed throughout the race too. Starting from P19, Arenas posted consistent times, to finish inside the top 14 and pick up two points. With just two Grand Prix remaining of the year - Malaysia and Valencia - GASGAS is poised to secure additional titles in Moto3 - by currently leading the Constructor and Teams standings. Watch this space. #28 - Izan Guevara: “To be world champion is incredible! I don’t know how to say it. It was an incredible race which has been part of an incredible season. It was a really close group at the front here today - I pushed as hard as I could, and in the last lap I thought it was possible to win the race. Huge thanks to my team, my family, and my friends for the support.” #11 - Sergio García: “Overall I’m happy with the result - I raced really, really hard today. I think ultimately the problem was on the straights; I was missing a little bit of speed. But we have to continue working on this and keep pushing for the final Grand Prix of the season.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “ I’d been fast through free practice and then I had a really bad qualifying which dropped me down to P14. I wasn't able to get any more out of the rear tire but I was able to keep up the consistency and do the same lap time every lap. I didn't have the pace of the others in front, but to come through from 14th was as good as we could have hoped for. That one was for Chrissy Rouse - his passing is so sad, and my heart goes out to all his family and friends. I raced with all my heart today - which is what he did every time on the bike.” #75 - Albert Arenas: “Well, we managed to get a few points and physically I felt fine after the crashes I had yesterday. It was a hard weekend and we have a few more days now to recover and get better for Malaysia and to try and end this period of flyaways in a good fashion. Many congrats to Izan for the title after a great season.” Pit Beirer – GASGAS Motorsports Director : “What a finish to an amazing championship for Izan, Jorge and all of his team. It’s been clear for some time that we have another special talent coming through the ranks and Izan showed his champion credentials in the best possible style today. GASGAS’ first world title in the MotoGP classes and we couldn’t be happier.”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 18: 1. Izan Guevara (GASGAS) 23 Laps; 2. Deniz Oncu (KTM) +0.345, 3.

                GASGAS FACTORY RACING’S ANDREA VERONA IS 2022 ENDUROGP WORLD CHAMPION!

                Ver Perfil
                Simply amazing! Andrea Verona has won the 2022 FIM EnduroGP World Championship title after placing fifth overall on day one at the EnduroGP of Germany. Adding further silverware to his already well-stocked trophy cabinet after claiming his third Enduro1 title back in August this year, Verona’s incredible season-long speed and consistency saw him secure the EnduroGP crown with a day of racing to spare. A deserving two-time world champion in 2022, Andrea Verona just keeps on getting better and better!
                • Andrea Verona is the 2022 FIM EnduroGP World Champion!
                • GASGAS racer does the double to secure EnduroGP and E1 crowns in 2022
                • Italian star and GASGAS Factory Racing claim third world title together
                Andrea Verona:   “This feels good! I’m super happy to be EnduroGP World Champion for myself but also the team. My goal was to win but I didn’t expect it to happen this year as I still have some areas of my riding to work on, but I was really consistent, and this is what won me the EnduroGP title. I was only off the podium two times all season including today, and this made all the difference. I have to say a huge thanks to GASGAS Factory Racing, all of the team sponsors, and everyone in Austria as this is a massive team effort. This is the biggest title to win in enduro and I believe I’m the first Italian to do it so, yeah, amazing. I think it may take a little while to sink in, but it’s been an amazing year and one that I won’t ever forget.”

                Way back in May, Verona made his 2022 EnduroGP title-winning aspirations crystal clear with a stunning victory on day one in Spain. From there onwards, well, the EC 250F racer simply excelled at every event and in all conditions. Combining his blazing-fast speed with unrivalled consistency, Andrea hit the EnduroGP podium on every single day of racing that followed except one, to build up a comfortable points lead ahead of the final round in Germany.

                Arriving at the season finale needing to score just 13 points across the two days of racing, even if his main rival won on both days, the odds were heavily stacked in Andrea’s favor. But leaving nothing to chance, the 23-year-old gave 100% as always to wrap up the 2022 EnduroGP title in style with a rock-solid fifth-place finish on day one.

                For Verona and GASGAS Factory Racing, that’s three world titles in just two years together! Two in E1, and now the prestigious EnduroGP crown. And with the super-fast and gracious Italian confirmed to race with GASGAS Factory Racing for at least another two seasons, we can’t wait for 2023 and beyond. But first, the final day of racing in Germany!

                Fabio Farioli – GASGAS Factory Racing Enduro Team Manager:   “What can I say? Andrea has won almost everything there is to win in 2022. The Italian championship, E1, EnduroGP, and even the Super Test series. He is so talented on a bike, and he has a smart head on his shoulders. When he knows he can’t win, he doesn’t ride over his head, and he takes the most points possible. He’s so fast in all conditions - stones, rain, mud, hardpack, everything - and he very rarely makes mistakes. For these reasons, he is a complete, all-round champion and I think he has more to give. I think this is just the start of his enduro career and he has a very bright future ahead of him.”

                GASGAS AND HINSON LOOK AHEAD TO TWO MORE YEARS OF GETTING ON THE GAS!

                Ver Perfil
                Since early 2020 when GASGAS took on the Dakar Rally for the very first time, Hinson Clutch Components have been fitted inside all of our MXGP, enduro, and rally bikes as we know just how tough, reliable, and high performing they are! So when the time came to renew things with the world’s best clutch component manufacturer, it was a pretty easy decision to make, and GASGAS Factory Racing will continue to benefit from using Hinson products throughout 2023 and 2024.

                Hinson has been manufacturing high-performance clutch components since 1992, so when we went full throttle into offroad racing at the turn of the decade, there was only one brand to call when it came to sourcing quality clutches for our dirt bikes. Shortly after the ink had dried on that deal, we won our first round of MXGP, and soon after that we won an AMA Supercross main event!

                Fast forward a little and by far the biggest accomplishment that GASGAS and Hinson have achieved together is winning the 2022 Dakar Rally! The grueling event, won by Sam Sunderland and his Hinson equipped RC 450F, required high performance and next-level reliability in order to succeed. And without a doubt, Sam’s win proved just how capable GASGAS Factory Racing machines fitted with Hinson products truly are.

                Robert Jonas, Head of Motorsports Offroad:  “Over the last three years, GASGAS and Hinson have won world championships in enduro and of course, Sam Sunderland won the Dakar which is clearly the highlight of the partnership so far. There has also been MXGP, and AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross wins too, so to continue the relationship with Hinson was a really easy decision to make. Hinson is one of the key technical partners that GASGAS Factory Racing has and on behalf of the team, I know everyone involved in the racing program is excited for the next two years alongside Hinson.”

                Ron Hinson, Hinson Clutch Components Director of Sales & Marketing:  “Since we partnered with GASGAS at the start of 2020 it’s been a really rewarding relationship. With the success they have achieved in a such a short time, and across multiple disciplines, it shows just how good their bikes are and the performance of our products. We’re only a few years into this technical partnership and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together in the seasons ahead.”

                GASGAS FACTORY RACING RE-SIGN ANDREA VERONA!

                Ver Perfil
                GASGAS is proud to announce the signing of a two-year contract extension with 2022 Enduro1 World Champion Andrea Verona. The super-fast Italian will continue to race for GASGAS Factory Racing in the FIM EnduroGP World Championship through to at least the close of the 2024 season!
                • Andrea Verona signs two-year contract extension
                • Two-time E1 champ to remain with GASGAS Factory Racing through 2024
                • Italian star to fight for EnduroGP crown this coming weekend!
                From joining GASGAS Factory Racing at the beginning of the 2021 season, Verona has dominated the Enduro1 category on his GASGAS EC 250F. Not only that, but the 23-year-old has also won back-to-back E1-class victories at the prestigious International Six Day Enduro – an incredible feat when up against the world’s best.

                Success hasn’t just been confined to the E1 category, however. Claiming five podiums over the course of the 2021 season, Verona ultimately placed third overall in the hotly contested EnduroGP class. Now, in 2022, the ever-smiling Italian has delivered an incredible season of consistent rides, claiming his first overall EnduroGP day win as well as a seriously impressive run of top-three overall results, missing the podium just once in 12 days of racing.

                Heading into the seventh and final round of the 2022 season in Zschopau, Germany this weekend, Andrea leads the EnduroGP standings by a substantial 28 points over his closest rival. Aiming to give his all as always, Verona has his sights set firmly on putting in another super strong ride and doing all he can to secure the 2022 EnduroGP crown.

                Andrea Verona:  “I’m really happy to continue racing with GASGAS Factory Racing for another two years. The past two years have been amazing, not only in terms of the results but also how the whole team works together. I think it’s been really good for me, and really good for GASGAS also. I feel really good with the bike and really good with all the members of the team – I think it’s the most complete team in the paddock in terms of bike and the overall set-up. Already I’m looking forward to the winter as we will again work really hard as a team, testing the bike and preparing for what I hope will be another great season in 2023. But first we have this weekend and the last round of the championship. I’m leading the EnduroGP standings by 28 points, which is great, but as we know anything can happen, and for me it’s important to stay focused on my racing. I know in myself if I ease off at all I am more likely to make mistakes, so this weekend I’m planning to give it everything and hopefully we can finish the season in a good way.”

                Robert Jonas – Head of Motorsports Offroad:   “Enduro is hugely important to GASGAS and so to re-sign Andrea for two more years is a massive boost to the team, strengthening the brand’s commitment to the FIM EnduroGP World Championship. Andrea has shown incredible speed and consistency throughout the 2022 season, proving to be almost unbeatable in the Enduro1 class and is now on the brink of claiming his first EnduroGP title. Whatever happens this weekend, we’re proud and excited to have Andrea with us for the next two years.”

                Fabio Farioli – GASGAS Factory Racing Enduro Team Manager:   “It’s great to have Andrea confirmed with the team for the 2023 and 2024 seasons. This year has been really exciting, both for him and GASGAS Factory Racing. By claiming the Enduro1 title early, then going on to take the E1 win at the ISDE, Andrea has already shown his class this season. Now, with one weekend of racing left to go, we as a team will support Andrea the very best we can in order for him to finish the season on a high and hopefully with another world title to his name. After that, we are already making plans for next year and will soon start testing as we work together to hopefully achieve even more success.”

                FIGHTING FIFTH OVERALL FOR SAM SUNDERLAND AT 2022 RALLYE DU MAROC

                Ver Perfil
                And that’s a wrap on Rallye du Maroc 2022! For GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland, it wasn’t quite the result the current FIM World Rally-Raid Championship leader was looking for, but fifth overall in what was a seriously competitive line-up was a strong finish nevertheless. More importantly, Sam extended his championship lead to 22 points with just one round to go - the Andalucia Rally later this month.
                • Fighting fifth overall for Sam Sunderland at Rallye du Maroc 2022
                • World Championship leader extends lead with just one round to go
                • Andalucia Rally up next for Sam and GASGAS Factory Racing
                Sam Sunderland:   “That’s the Rallye du Maroc done for another year. It’s been a tough one and I haven’t been at my best this week. But day by day I improved and with some small changes to the bike things got better as the race went on. All week there were some tricky navigation points and today was no exception. Seven kilometers in and quite a few of us couldn’t validate it and then we were all just riding in dust which made us all slow our pace. It was frustrating but all in all, I’m happy and I didn’t try to force the issue or take any risks. Fifth is good for the championship and now it’s on to Andalucia in a couple of weeks.”

                The downside to Sam’s impressive runner-up finish on yesterday’s special was that he was the second rider into today’s fifth and final stage. After making a quick start, a troublesome waypoint early on allowed many of his chasing competitors to catch him up. With a group of riders formed, Sam kept his cool despite the frustration of riding through dust for the remainder of the day.

                Knowing that any chance of lifting the 2022 FIM Rally-Raid World Championship in Morocco had gone, Sunderland maintained a solid pace to safely bring himself and his trusty RX 450F home to secure fifth overall and in doing so, further extend his lead at the top of the standings to 22 points. And now, with just one round to go, all Sam needs is a 13th place finish or better at the Andalucia Rally to be crowned world champion. Bring it on!

                  SUNDERLAND ON THE GAS TO PLACE SECOND ON PENULTIMATE STAGE OF RALLYE DU MAROC

                  Ver Perfil
                  Oh yeah, that is how it’s done! Needing to deliver a strong result with the pressure well and truly on, Sam Sunderland has clocked the second-fastest time on stage four at Rallye du Maroc to move up to third in the provisional standings with just one timed special to go. Now that’s what we call a productive day in the desert!
                  • Sunderland back to his best on penultimate stage at Rallye du Maroc
                  • GASGAS Factory Racing rally star masters the technical timed special
                  • Just one more day of racing to go in Morocco for Sam and his RX 450F
                  Sam Sunderland:   “Today was the longest stage and it definitely felt like it! It was fast out there with a lot of difficult terrain, but after making a few small adjustments to the suspension on my bike, it really made a difference and I felt much more comfortable. I was able to attack a little more and that really helped. Things in rally can change quickly so it’s important to take things day by day as my good friend Toby crashed out today, but fortunately he’ll be ok. My focus is now on tomorrow and the final stage and I’m excited for it.”

                  It’s been a bit of a wild ride so far at the Rallye du Maroc but on the penultimate stage, Sam was definitely back to his best. After making a steady start on what was the longest stage of the rally - a whopping 346-kilometer timed special from Laayoune to Tan-Tan – Sunderland massively upped his pace once he’d passed the first checkpoint.

                  Continuing to take serious chunks of time out of the leaders throughout the penultimate stage on his way to posting the second-fastest time, Sam’s impressive result sees the Brit leap up to third in the overall leaderboard. And with just one more timed special separating him from the event’s finish line in Agadir, the race to the finish is set to be epic!

                  Watch the red spread! GASGAS will push for major honors in all three world championship classes in MotoGP ™ 2023 with a mouth-watering blend of exuberance and experience. GASGAS will hope to thrust some special red into podium ceremonies of the Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP categories next year. In addition to the GASGAS Factory Racing roster of Pol Espargaro and Augusto Fernandez in MotoGP, the championship winning team of GASGAS Aspar Team will field Izan Guevara and Jake Dixon in Moto2 and Ryusei Yamanaka and David Alonso in Moto3 with the whole squad to be managed by former world champion Nico Terol.
                  • All-new line-up in Moto3 with the RC 250 GP bikes sees Japanese star Ryusei Yamanaka joining Columbian youngster David Alonso
                  • Izan Guevara continues his GASGAS story as the current Moto3 championship leader pushes into the intermediate division in 2023. Consistent podium contender Jake Dixon stays for a second season
                  • GASGAS is the latest brand to have a strong athlete talent ‘path’ through all three stages of MotoGP
                  The cast list is set for GASGAS full blooded premiere in 2023 MotoGP. Thanks to the strong association with the GASGAS Aspar Team the brand can count on fierce potential through the ranks and from teenage promise in Moto3 to ongoing growth in Moto2. The fresh GASGAS presence in MotoGP - due to the link with the Tech3 setup - ensures Pol Espargaro and Augusto Fernandez will be the envy of the racers following in their exhaust plume. Moto3 David Alonso – The 2021 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Champion and understudy for the GASGAS Aspar Team earns his Moto3 spurs for 2023. The 16-year-old has been fighting in JuniorGP this year – claiming one victory to stand 6th overall – and has received the stamp for the highest level. Ryusei Yamanaka – Still just 20-years-old, Ryusei has notched three seasons of Moto3 education after making his way through ‘Road to MotoGP’ talent filters like the Asia Talent Cup and the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. He has lodged nine top ten finishes in 2022 and came close to podium reckoning in Mugello, Italy this summer. Moto2 Jake Dixon – One of the few British riders in the world championship, Jake Dixon has an established relationship with GASGAS Aspar Team and has delivered on his potential by walking the rostrum four times in 2022 and sealing two Pole Positions. 2023 will be the 26-year-old’s fifth season in Moto2. Izan Guevara – An authentic rising star who stands on the threshold of Moto3 world championship success in just his second term in Grand Prix racing. Regardless of how 2022 eventually plays out, the 18-year-old Majorcan has progressed enormously and entertained vigorously. He’ll be an exciting debutant in 2023 Moto2. As 2022 winds down GASGAS Aspar Team are still chasing the Moto3 world title with Guevara leading by 49 points (prior to the Animoca Brands Australian Grand Prix) and Sergio Garcia also 3rd in the standings (both riders have won rounds this campaign). Jake Dixon and Albert Arenas have been pushing for podium trophies in Moto2 and have lodged four so far. Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez, Team Principal : “It’s been some years now that we have been working with young riders from the first levels and taking up to a position where they can be world championship contenders. Together with GASGAS that will be our objective again in 2023. We go another year in Moto3 where we count on the experience of Ryusei together with the youth of David, who we have been nurturing for five years and have enjoyed success in the European Talent Cup and the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. In Moto2 we confide in Jake again after a decent season in which he has appeared on the podium several times, and then the special talent of Izan – one of the jewels in our crown – who will make the change after such a strong year pushing for the Moto3 title. All four are strong riders, fast, and we know them well so we hope we can keep the GASGAS name on top of the podium in ’23.”

                  STRONG FOURTH-PLACE FINISH FOR SAM SUNDERLAND ON DAY THREE IN MOROCCO

                  Ver Perfil
                  Onwards and upwards! Stage three of the 2022 Rallye du Maroc saw Sam Sunderland back at the sharp end of the results as the Brit mastered the gnarly terrain to clock the fourth-fastest time. After what was by far his best performance this week, Sam’s now knocking on the door of the top five in the provisional standings with a spot on the overall podium well up for grabs. It’s go time!
                  • Sam posts his best stage result so far at 2022 Rallye du Maroc
                  • Dakar champ narrowly misses out on a top-three stage finish
                  • Technical terrain and tricky navigation no match for Sunderland
                  Sam Sunderland:  “Another long and tough day. The wind we had today was pretty epic which blew sand across a lot of the tracks to make navigation even more tricky, but it’s the same for everyone, I guess. For the most part I was riding by myself for pretty much the whole stage, and I felt good on the bike, the best I have since the race started, I would say. Today was a big improvement so I’m aiming to carry on like this and keep on moving up the leaderboard.”

                  Day after day, the Rallye du Maroc is providing tough test after tough test. Needing a strong result on stage three, which was made all the more treacherous thanks to some serious cross winds, Sam simply delivered, with his hard effort seeing him race across the finish line just 25 seconds behind the third-placed rider in fourth.

                  Now, with two stages to go and little to separate the riders ahead of him, the Brit remains in close contention for a place on the overall podium. But it won’t be easy as tomorrow, Sam will be the fourth competitor to enter the special and take on the longest stage of the event as one of the leading riders. But if anyone can lead out, navigate with precision, and deliver a strong result under pressure, it’s GASGAS Factory Racing’s very own, Sam Sunderland.

                  SAM SUNDERLAND CLAIMS A FIGHTING SEVENTH ON STAGE TWO AT RALLYE DU MAROC

                  Doing exactly what’s needed to remain in contention for victory at Rallye du Maroc, Sam Sunderland has placed seventh on stage two despite losing a little time locating a troublesome WPC. Keeping his cool after successfully validating the waypoint, Sam upped his pace to make up for lost time, eventually bringing his RX 450F home in a strong position. Now seventh overall in the provisional standings, the times at the top remain close with three stages remaining.
                  • Sunderland posts the seventh fastest time on stage two
                  • Rallye du Maroc serving up technical terrain and tricky navigation
                  • Sam now lies seventh in the overall provisional classification
                  Sam Sunderland :  “Today was another tough one with the terrain and also the navigation. Early on in the stage I took a little bit too long to get going but at refueling I had a bit of a reset and then I felt strong to the finish. One WPC was really difficult to find in the off-piste, which was a little frustrating, but it’s the same for everyone and tomorrow’s another day.”

                  Stage two at Rallye du Maroc proved to be a frustrating one for our rally ace. But knowing just how vital staying calm and remaining focused can be, once Sam had validated a troublesome checkpoint it was full gas the finish.

                  And it was Sunderland’s high pace that secured the seventh-fastest time on stage two to reduce his deficit to the rally leader, despite slipping to seventh in the provisional standings. Now sitting just over seven minutes adrift of the lead with three stages remaining, not to mention having a favorable starting position for tomorrow’s stage three, Sam is just getting warmed up!

                  POSITIVE START FOR SAM SUNDERLAND AT RALLYE DU MAROC

                  Ver Perfil
                  GASGAS Factory Racing’s Sam Sunderland has got his 2022 Rallye du Maroc off to a strong start by completing the technical opening stage with the fifth-fastest time. With high speeds, mixed terrain, and plenty of navigation on the menu throughout stage one in Morocco, it was a seriously tough test, but for the reigning Dakar champ, it proved to be a productive day in the office.
                  • Sunderland fifth-fastest through stage one at Rallye du Maroc
                  • Reigning Dakar champ safely completes challenging opening special
                  • One stage down and four to go in Morocco for Sam and his RX 450F
                  Sam Sunderland:   “That’s stage one in the books! It was a good but challenging day for me. Lots of navigation, mixed terrain, and even a 30-kilometer section on a beach, which was pretty fast! Towards the end it was a bit of a struggle. I hurt my wrist in a small crash last week and near the end it was a bit sore, so I had to back off my pace a little. But overall, I’m happy and fifth is a good start to the race, I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”

                  It's been a while since a full line-up of the best rally racers in the world were in action, and stage one at the Rallye du Maroc served as a reminder to just how technical, and physical, rally racing really is. As the 16th rider to enter the 316-kilometer special, Sam was on the pace from the start and quickly began working his way up the overall leaderboard.

                  Enjoying the mixed terrain in the early going, as well as a wide open 30-kilometer sprint down a beach, the reigning Dakar champ showed stage-winning pace. After holding down third place for much of the special, the Brit was frustratingly forced to slow his pace a little due to a little discomfort following a crash during testing prior to the event. Sam nevertheless held strong for a solid fifth-place finish.

                  With today’s over three-hour long stage complete, Sam will now focus on Monday’s stage two. A winding 315-kilometer special from Tan-Tan to Laâyoune, the terrain is expected to mirror the conditions found stage one. Another tough day at the office is guaranteed.

                  Torrential Thai weather and fast racing for GASGAS in Buriram

                  Ver Perfil
                  A dramatic weather-dominated OR Thailand Grand Prix saw GASGAS race to fourth in Moto2™ with Jake Dixon and fifth in Moto3™ with Izan Guevara. With three races to go, the Thailand Grand Prix at the Chang International Circuit brought high drama including storms, a top four finish for the Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team, and a key top five result in Moto3 for team Gaviota GASGAS Aspar.
                  • Izan Guevara lays on a champions ride into 5th from P11, despite a difficult weekend while Sergio García suffers a DNF after being taken out on lap one.
                  • Jake Dixon made the most of a storm affected and shortened Moto2 race to finish 4th, while Albert Arenas takes 14th.
                  • With three races remaining in 2022, GASGAS are poised for championship success in Moto3 by topping the Rider, Constructor and Teams standings.
                  The relentless schedule of races continues to double down with GASGAS battling through their third Grand Prix in a row. What’s more, the ultra-fast and flowing Chang International Circuit in Thailand welcomed its first Grand Prix in three years. From wet to dry and back again, the Thailand Grand Prix was arguably dominated by the weather; which is typical of the hot and humid conditions experienced in Thailand during early October. The Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Moto3 Team and their rivals managed to just sneak a race before the looming clouds soaked the 4.6km, 12 turn venue. From what could have been a disastrous weekend, Izan Guevara managed to convert a P11 start into a top-five finish after an arduous practice and qualification period on Friday and Saturday. Working the 22 lap race to the maximum, Guevara fought hard to close down a sizable gap to the leading group and engage in a four-way battle for fourth with Stefano Nepa, David Muñoz and Andrea Migno. On the final lap Guevara survived a few major scares unscathed to cross the line in 5th, and bag 11 points in the process. The result means he also takes a 45-point advantage over nearest championship rival Dennis Foggia, who leap-frogged Sergio García in the standings after taking the Moto3 win in Thailand. García in particular endured a weekend to forget in Thailand, with a P20 grid start turning into a nightmare result. On the opening lap rival Adrian Fernandez high sided through turn 12 and side-swiped García into the gravel. Despite restarting and circulating for a handful more laps, García eventually retired on lap 8. Shortly after the Moto3 podiums concluded and the Moto2 crews - including The Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team - were lining up on the grid, spots of rain started to appear on everyone’s visors. Unfortunately what started as light precipitation, turned into a monsoon-style soaking and resulted in a fragmented Moto2 race. Red flagged after eight laps due to the weather conditions, Jake Dixon - who recently renewed his contract to ride for GASGAS in 2023 - secured 4th place from his P7 grid slot. Meanwhile Albert Arenas, who incidentally won the Moto3 race last time he was in Thailand in 2019, finished 14th from his P15 grid slot and having ploughed through the pack in the rain after a late tire change and launching from pitlane. Next up, Phillip Island beckons, with the Australian Grand Prix on October 16. #11 - Sergio García: “I don’t know what to say. I tried to do my race and come back step-by-step but it barely lasted a lap when someone crashed into me and that was it. I know things like this can happen but it is still hard to accept. I went back out to see if there was anything to salvage but it was just to ride around in the end so not worth it. Forget this one and think to the next one.” #28 - Izan Guevara: “Time to think of the championship. It was a really hard race and demanding on both the front and rear tires as well as physically for me. I started well and felt good but I couldn’t run with the group ahead and then had to focus on 5th. We now have our first chance in Australia and we’ll see how we do." #75 - Albert Arenas: “An unexpected race. When we were on the grid and ready with slicks the rain started. Then the race was declared wet it meant we quickly had to change bikes and tires and we had to start last. I did well at the beginning and gained twenty places to be near the top ten but it was hard to see on track and was pretty crazy. Red flag and in the end we could not restart. A new experience, and good to learn how to handle the stress of last minute changes. I really wanted to restart to see where we could finish but, anyway, now a week off and a chance to recharge before we go to Australia.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “Crazy race. It was just a matter of survival and I rode well within myself because I wanted to finish. I was close to Canet when the red flag came out so it could have potentially been another podium or maybe more, who knows. The heavier the rain was the less risk I wanted to take. When the bike is aquaplaning along the straight at 150mph it doesn’t matter how much talent you have. Anyway, another solid result and we’ll enjoy the week-off before Phillip Island.”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 17: 1. Dennis Foggia (Honda) 22 Laps; 2.

                  SAM SUNDERLAND FIRED UP AS RALLY RACING RETURNS WITH RALLYE DU MAROC

                  Ver Perfil
                  Over 200 days since Sam Sunderland raced to victory at the 2022 Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge – round two of the 2022 FIM Rally-Raid World Championship – the series finally fires back into life this weekend at the Rallye du Maroc. Eager to get back to business after a lengthy break in the calendar, the GASGAS Factory Racing star is excited to be back racing in Morocco after a summer spent fine-tuning his RX 450F. It’s time to go racing!
                  • Sam Sunderland returns to competitive action at the Rallye du Maroc
                  • Dakar Champ leads the world championship heading into round three
                  • Daniel Sanders continues to focus on returning to full fitness after injury
                  Sam Sunderland:  “It’s really exciting to be back racing after a pretty long gap in the calendar. But we’re here, and I can’t wait to get started on Saturday. We’ve done a lot of testing over the summer, including here in Morocco, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the changes we made work in a racing environment. Recently it’s been a case of getting used to the high speeds again but that’s gone well, and everything has fallen into place at just the right time. I’m feeling good and it’s great to be back racing again.”

                  With a couple of cancellations and postponements during the 2022 rally racing season, Sam Sunderland has made full use of the downtime to further develop his Dakar Rally winning RX 450F. Focused on putting those refinements to the test while keeping one eye on potentially wrapping up the 2022 FIM Rally-Raid World Championship with a round to spare, the Brit is fighting fit and ready for action in Morocco.

                  Rallye du Maroc kicks off with a short prologue on Saturday, October 1 ahead of the first full length stage on Sunday. In total, the five-day event covers 2,316 kilometers, with 1,575 of those raced against the clock. The fifth and final stage takes place on Thursday, October 6 and once riders have charged across the finish line in Agadir, they’ll have successfully completed round three of the 2022 FIM Rally-Raid World Championship.

                  Unfortunately, Sam’s teammate, Aussie Daniel Sanders, will be absent from racing in Morocco as he continues to return to full fitness after picking up an early-season injury.

                  GASGAS SECURES TRIAL DES NATIONS PODIUM WITH LUCA PETRELLA

                  Ver Perfil
                  Bringing the 2022 outdoor trial season to a close at the iconic Monza road racing circuit in northern Italy, GASGAS rider Luca Petrella has secured a spot on the podium with team Italy having finished a strong second, sandwiched between winners Spain and Great Britain in third. Competing as the only GASGAS Factory Racing team member in the event, Benoit Bincaz led team France to a fourth-place result.
                  • Luca Petrella puts GASGAS on the podium as team Italy claim second at 2022 TdN
                  • GASGAS Factory Racing’s Benoit Bincaz secures fourth with team France
                  • Monza event wraps up 2022 outdoor trial season
                  Held inside the iconic Italian road race circuit, the 2022 Trial des Nations served up a host of man-made sections, with home fans out in force to support Petrella and the Italian national squad. Fired-up for a podium result from the start of the day, Italy and Petrella made a strong start to lap one, only falling behind eventual winners Spain from section five onwards.

                  Completing lap one with the second lowest score, Italy held their nerve to put in an impressive team performance on lap two. Dropping just eight marks, compared to Spain’s one mark and Great Britain’s 19, they secured second to give GASGAS mounted Petrella a well-deserved home podium result.

                  Riding together with Hugo Dufrese and Gael Chatagno, GASGAS Factory Racing’s Benoit Bincaz competed his international outdoor season with a fourth-place result as France ended the day 18 marks behind Great Britain.

                  Thanks to the combined efforts of GASGAS riders Erika Melchoir and Huldenborg Barkved, Norway placed fourth in the Women’s Trial des Nations while Maddie Hoover helped the USA finish seventh. Leonor Moreira and Olivia Brunsvig played their part in Portugal and Denmark finishing eighth and ninth respectively.

                  In the International Trophy, GASGAS riders took two places on the podium with Martin Matejicek helping the Czech Republic secure a winning result while Marco Mempor and Fabio Schollar helped team Austria to a place on the podium in third after a close-fought battle with Sweden.

                  Benoit Bincaz:   “It’s been a fun time here at the Trial of Nations. Unfortunately, despite fighting for a place on the podium, France ended up fourth, which is a little disappointing, but we all gave our best and it’s still a result to be proud of. Being in Monza was pretty special, a great place to end the outdoor season. Now it’s time to keep training and prepare for the final X-Trial event in October.”

                  Albert Cabestany – GASGAS Factory Racing Trial team manager:   “It’s been great to welcome riders from all around the world to the Trial des Nations here in Italy. For GASGAS, and for many others, the event is the last major outdoor international competition of the season, so there is a special atmosphere. It’s great to see these riders that don’t get the chance to compete with the TrialGP regulars being a part of the event, enjoying themselves, and doing their best. For us, it was a pleasure to help and work with many of these riders, and also to see GASGAS on the Men’s podium with Luca Petrella.”

                  Impressive rides from GASGAS Factory Racing riders at MXoN

                  Ver Perfil
                  The Motocross of Nations never disappoints and the seventy-fifth edition, which was held at RedBud earlier today, was certainly no different! Even regular rain showers couldn't silence the crowd, who hung over the fences from the start of the weekend to the very end. The Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team had all of their stars in action; Jorge Prado (Spain), Mattia Guadagnini (Italy) and Simon Langenfelder (Germany) impressed at different points. 
                  • Jorge Prado leads Spain to sixth overall.
                  • Mattia Guadagnini impresses in moto two.
                  • Simon Langenfelder pushes hard at MXoN.
                  Returning to the RedBud circuit where he has had success in the past, Prado was immediately comfortable on his MC 450F and set the fastest time in his practice session. Prado's first moto in Spanish colors was very consistent – he started in sixth and finished in the same position on a track that'd been hammered by rain. Again battling at the front of the pack in the final moto, he hit the checkered flag in seventh and got fourth in the MXGP overall classification. Prado led Team Spain to their best result in fifteen years, sixth, too! Jorge Prado:   "I had a solid day at RedBud! It is always great to race here with such amazing fans. I took sixth with Team Spain and I am happy with that, as we are a very young team and I know that we will improve. I will keep dreaming of a podium with my country. Thanks to everyone for the support!" Mattia Guadagnini was a fan favourite as soon as he touched down in the USA and the way that he rode in his first moto only helped that! Using all of the power in his MC 450F, he ripped into the early lead and was at the front for almost half of the race. Guadagnini eventually took third, which ended up being Italy's greatest result. Unfortunately, crashes hindered him in the third moto and he could only salvage a nineteenth. 3-19 scores left him in sixth in the Open overall classification, but he was certainly capable of so much more. Italy took fourth in the overall classification. Like Guadagnini, Simon Langenfelder was racing at the Motocross of Nations for just the second time in his young career. Langenfelder was charging early in moto one when he made a mistake, but he was not to be deterred and went from twenty-eighth to seventeenth. There was a lot more work to be done in the second moto; Langenfelder fell in turn one and had plenty of ground to make up in the rain. Amazingly, he got on the gas and charged all of the way to eleventh at the checkered flag! Not only did that leave him fifth in the MX2 overall classification, but it was also Team Germany's best result. Germany finished eighth. Mattia Guadagnini:  "The first race was unbelievable. I took the holeshot and led for half of the race before finishing third. I was so, so happy. I made a really big mistake in the final moto and crashed on the start. I crashed another time too, so it was not the best race. I was not riding that good either. I am really happy about my first race though." Simon Langenfelder:  "It was an okay weekend. I had some bad luck with my starts, so I had to fight a lot to get to the front. It was not easy! I had a good second race, for sure, as I took eleventh after getting caught up in a crash at the start. I came from quite far back. I am happy with my weekend! It was just cool to race here on my MC 250F."

                  Motegi glory for GASGAS as sensational Guevara wins Moto3™ & Dixon battles to fourth in Moto2™

                  Ver Perfil
                  Fearless Izan Guevara bounces back from a warm-up crash to win Moto3™ while Jake Dixon races to a gritty 4th place finish in Moto2™
                  • Izan Guevara takes win no.5 of the season in a masterclass performance at Motegi to extend his Moto3 championship lead while Sergio García pushes hard and finishes 4th.
                  • Jake Dixon lays on a confident performance to rank in the Moto2 top four just 0.4 seconds off the podium while Albert Arenas recovers to 8th
                  • Grand Prix racing in the Far East continues thick and fast after Motegi with round 17 of 20 - the Thailand Grand Prix - going live on the 2nd of October.
                  GASGAS goes big in Japan as racing returns to the stunning Mobility Resort Motegi circuit for the first time since 2019. Cutting through the high drama created by the weather - which brought Typhoon storms and rain, and then a sun-baked race day - both the Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Moto3 Team and Inde GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team enjoyed a solid weekend hunting around the 4.8km circuit. Looking ever the champion elect, Izan Guevara logged a sensational performance at his first ever visit to the Japanese venue. Despite crashing heavily during Sunday morning warm-up, and starting the race from P9, the 19-year-old Spanish racer rocketed through from the start to leapfrog up the order and emerge as race leader inside the first lap. What followed was a treat for fans worldwide, as Guevara proceeded to control the race from the front, shrugging off intense pressure from Ayumu Sasaki, Dennis Foggia and Jaume Masià. The excellence not only netted Guevara the win but, significantly, it was also his second back-to-back victory of the season, and now gives him a 45 point lead in the championship over his team-mate, who is currently placed second. García in fact salvaged another challenging weekend with a solid ride into 4th. Starting on the front row, García had looked unsettled on the bike during the Japanese weekender - suffering two huge crashes during qualifying. Nevertheless, he pushed hard to manage his race and record another 13 points to his championship campaign. In Moto2, Jake Dixon endured a rollercoaster ride from the front row of the grid to a 4th place finish. Ever his own harshest critic, Dixon had remained unconvinced at his own speed at Motegi, and despite a difficult start where the 26-year-old British rider slipped back to ninth, Dixon worked hard to recover back to the sharp end of the pack, only narrowly missing out on a podium place by 0.4 seconds. Teammate Albert Arenas also salvaged his Japanese weekend from a low grid start to a top eight ranking. After suffering a crash during the wet conditions of Q2 on Saturday, Arenas was forced to start Sunday’s race from a lowly P17. Working hard through the 22 lap Grand Prix, Arenas chipped away to bag another eight points towards his championship campaign. With the Asian leg of the 2022 season in full effect, the action moves to the Chang International Circuit for the Thailand Grand Prix in just a week’s time - on October 2nd. #11 - Sergio García: "A positive day in terms of my feeling on the bike and the fast pace in the race. I was improving lap-by-lap and that was the key today in keeping and bettering my position. We made a step forward here compared to MotorLand last week. Now we have to make another in Thailand.” #28 - Izan Guevara: “I’m really happy with my race - I made an incredible start from P9 and pushed as hard as I could. I want to say a big thanks to my team because I had a big crash during warm up, and they were able to repair the bike in record time. Massive thanks to everyone for their support - back to back victories now; it’s just incredible!” #75 - Albert Arenas: “A difficult race but I think we can be satisfied with our comeback. We take points home and more knowledge about how to handle rear grip. We want more than this but it was still a platform to build from ahead of the other flyaways.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “I was a bit nervous at the beginning but then found my rhythm and started to pick off the guys around me to eventually get back to 4th. I closed the gap to Alonso but in the last moments I was just thinking about not crashing. If it hadn’t been for a few DNFs lately then I might have had a go at it. I thought it was better to bring back 4th position. There are still things we can improve and it was just my second time here in Motegi so the top four is not too bad today.”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 16: 1.

                  MIQUEL GELABERT SIGNS-OFF FROM 2022 TRIALGP SEASON WITH A SIXTH PLACE FINISH IN ITALY

                  Ver Perfil
                  That’s that! The 2022 FIM TrialGP World Championship is done and dusted with GASGAS Factory Racing’s Miquel Gelabert digging deep to end the year with two solid rides at the TrialGP of Italy. Sixth on day one after ending the first of two laps in third, in the chilly, tree covered mountains surrounding Ponte di Legno, Miquel finished seventh on day two to end the year seventh in the final TrialGP series standings.
                  • GASGAS Factory Racing wrap-up 2022 TrialGP series in Italy
                  • Miquel Gelabert in the mix for top three result on day one
                  • Gelabert & Bincaz finish the season seventh and 10th in TrialGP standings
                  Returning to a two-day format for the final event of the championship, the TrialGP of Italy served up some cold conditions and spectacular action high up in the mountains of Northern Italy. Offering one last chance for the class of 2022 to battle it out for podium places, for GASGAS Factory Racing’s Miquel Gelabert, it was a case of close but no cigar as the skillful Spaniard wasn’t quite able to turn a third-place result at the end of the opening day’s first lap into an end-of-day podium result.

                  Eventually placing a strong sixth on day one, try as he did, day two just didn’t go as Gelabert wanted it to. Riding well, but just not quite able to reproduce the form he’d served up on day one, he finished the day seventh – a positive end to his 2022 TrialGP championship.

                  Hindered by a crash in the opening section on day one, Benoit Bincaz rounded out the 2022 TrialGP World Championship with 8/12 results in Italy, placing 10th in the final TrialGP championship standings.

                  In the Trial2 class Gianluca Tournour gave his home fans plenty to cheer about as he came out on top of a three-rider fight for victory. Winning by just one mark, the young Italian backed it up with second on day two to wrap-up the year sixth in the Trial2 World Championship standings.

                  Miquel Gelabert:  “I was riding super good on day one and felt so good on my GASGAS. It was a great trial, a very nice way to end the championship. As is often the way, one mistake can have a big impact on the result, and that’s what happened to me. In the end I finished sixth, but I was fighting for third, which I was very pleased with. Only one five score and then some time penalties prevented me from finishing third. It’s frustrating not to get that podium result, but my riding was really good, which I’m pleased with. Day two also started well but I made a mistake on section four and then I had a small issue on section nine. I gave everything on the second lap and eventually finished seventh. Not the result we wanted to end the season, but my riding was good so it’s a positive way to end the year.”

                  Benoit Bincaz:  “ It’s been a mixed trial for me. Day one was good, but I had a crash in the first section, which meant I was riding in some pain for the first lap. Thankfully, my second lap was much better, so I was able to finish eighth overall for the day. Today things just didn’t work out, there’s really not too much more to say. But being in the GASGAS Factory Racing team this year has been awesome, I’ve learned so much. The mid-season races were good for me, and now I hope to end the year well next weekend at the Trial of Nations, here in Italy.”

                  Albert Cabestany:  “We finish the 2022 TrialGP season with a lot to be pleased about, but also with some areas we need to improve on with our riders. Gianluca Tournour was racing very strong in Trial2. The season ended in a very good way for him with victory in Belgium and then the win on day one here in Italy, which he followed up with a strong second place finish today. So, it’s been a superb job from him. We are also very happy with Jack Dance’s first season in Trial2. We know it is a very tough class with 25 riders all challenging to score points, and Jack has made a very good season. The important thing is that he knows what he needs to improve on during the winter. In TrialGP we came very, very close to a podium result on day one with Miquel. That would have been a fantastic way to end the season, but unfortunately that top three result just escaped from our hands. But nevertheless, he put in a great ride and has given his all throughout the championship. Also, I have to mention Luca Petrella, the young Italian, who claimed his first ever top-six TrialGP result. I am sure we will see more and more from him next season. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the weekend Benoit wanted. But overall, as a team, it has been a strong year and as always, we will keep pushing to improve.”

                  Peerless Guevara dominates Aragón Grand Prix for GASGAS

                  Ver Perfil
                  The Gran Premio Animoca Brands de Aragón illustrated the true highs and lows of motorcycle racing for GASGAS - with Izan Guevara putting on a vintage performance to take his fourth win of the season, while Sergio Garcia finished 13th. In Moto2 both Jake Dixon and Albert Arenas couldn’t reach the checkered flag.
                  • Autosolar GASGAS Aspar rider Izan Guevara scorches the Moto3 field from P1 to the top step of the podium, recording his fourth win of the year, while Sergio Garcia finishes 13th
                  • Shimoku GASGAS Aspar’s Jake Dixon suffers a difficult weekend crashing out of the top six while Albert Arenas unfortunately falls on lap two
                  • GASGAS faces a dash to the other side of the world in just four days to compete in the Grand Prix of Japan on the 25th September
                  The undulations of the 5km MotorLand Aragón circuit in Northern Spain were almost a perfect reflection of the emotions experienced for both the Autosolar GASGAS Aspar Moto3 team and the Shimoku GASGAS Aspar Moto2 Team. In Moto3 Izan Guevara showed his mettle with - arguably - a career defining performance. The 18-year-old from Palma de Mallorca had set his sights on nothing short of victory in what was his home race. With an agreement to move up to Moto2 alongside Jake Dixon for next season, Guevara is aiming for race victories but also to finish the season with the championship title in hand. He’s ideally placed to do that now. After blistering qualifying sessions which netted him P1 for Sunday, and then a scorching 19 lap light-to-flag performance, Guevara is already looking like champion material. His fourth win of the year so far now means he is 33 points ahead of his teammate Sergio Garcia - who could only finish 13th in Aragón - in the riders standings. GASGAS is also dominating the Constructor and Teams standings by a significant margin, making it exceptional news all round. Unfortunately the Shimoku GASGAS Aspar squad suffered a weekend to forget in Moto2, with Albert Arenas cashing out on lap two and then Jake Dixon losing the front and tumbling out of the race on the last lap while battling in the top six. The double retirement on Sunday could have easily gone the other way for Arenas and Dixon who had qualified in 2nd and 3rd respectively. The opportunity to bounce back is just around the corner nevertheless as GASGAS and the entire Grand Prix paddock now dashes to the far east, to the other side of the globe, for the Motul Grand Prix of Japan on the 25th of September #11 - Sergio García: "I wasn’t expecting a race like this. I couldn’t find the feeling I wanted and made a lot of mistakes at the braking points and on corner entry. I know we could have done better but it was also important to keep calm. It is important to keep positive and keep working hard like we always do across the race weekends.” #28 - Izan Guevara: “This was an incredible and really important result for the championship - this victory is really important for me and the team too. It was an incredible race, our pace was so strong all weekend. I pushed hard straight from P1 at the start and just raced as hard as I could to keep the gap as big as possible. An incredible weekend, and Motorland is my home!” #75 - Albert Arenas: “Obviously the race did not go to plan, it barely got started and there was a lot of chaos on the first laps. I saw Augusto was flying and I arrived to Turn 12, locked the front and went down. Things that can happen sometimes and I have to put it down to learning because the rest of the weekend had been going very well. We’ll keep pushing as we head overseas now. Japan means the first time at Motegi since 2019 and the Asian leg of the calendar has always been quite good for me in the past. We have good speed and we just need to cut down these mistakes in the six races we have left.” #96 - Jake Dixon: “I was fighting for 4th position and don’t really understand what happened with the crash. I’d like to have a look through the data. I want to say sorry to the team. I gave them a lot of work this weekend. Not ideal. We’ll move onto Japan now and to a track I really enjoy.”   Results - 2022 Moto3 World Championship, Round 15: 1. Izan Guevara (GASGAS) 19 Laps; 2. Ayumu Sasaki (Husqvarna) +0.957, 3.

                  Augusto Fernandez completes 2023 MotoGP™ GASGAS Factory Racing line-up

                  Ver Perfil
                  Current ‘standout’ from the 2022 Moto2™ class, Augusto Fernandez, will take the plunge into the big-time for 2023 when he will partner fellow Spaniard Pol Espargaro in the brand new GASGAS Factory Racing Team in MotoGP. Fernandez, soon-to-be 25 from Mallorca, has been the most prolific racer in the intermediate division so far in 2022 with four Grand Prix victories prior to the Gran Premio Animoca Brands de Aragón, round 15 of 20, this coming weekend. Competing for the decorated Red Bull KTM Ajo team, Fernandez is hoping to give the squad their second Moto2 title in a row. Augusto came through national and European levels to first taste Moto2 and the world championship in 2017. He was a replacement rider in the class in 2018 and he swiftly learned the necessary speed and demands, to the point where he notched three wins and a total of five podiums in 2019. 2020 was another educational year but he grasped six trophies in 2021 to obtain another top-five championship finish and fall under the attentive gaze of Aki Ajo and his all-conquering crew. Fernandez’ development, ability and potential means that he now follows the path of progression to MotoGP. Thanks to the brand-new union with the Tech3 Racing team, GASGAS now have a flow from FIM JuniorGP™, Moto3™, Moto2 and into the elite with MotoGP. The dynamic and energetic brand will enter the peak of Grand Prix for the first time next year due to the synchronization with Hervé Poncharal’s long established and successful squad. Augusto Fernandez : “Wow, this is amazing: to be able to make the jump to MotoGP with GASGAS. I want to thank everyone in the racing structure around me for all their support since I signed with the Red Bull KTM Ajo team last year. I’m really happy. It’s a dream. We still have work to do in Moto2 and I want to go for the title and go to the MotoGP class – and this next challenge - in the best possible way.” Hervé Poncharal, GASGAS Factory Racing Team Principal : “I have been following Augusto for a few seasons now and we already discussed moving up to the higher class two years ago but he was not ready yet for the big jump. When we met again recently, it appeared very clear that he was prepared to come to MotoGP. I am excited about next season because our garage will have a mix of experience and youth through Pol and Augusto. They are both Spanish and will work in a positive and constructive way and this is what we have been looking for. Welcome to MotoGP Augusto, keep calm and focus on your Moto2 championship. We will be waiting for you in our garage on Tuesday following the Valencia GP for your first MotoGP test.” Pit Beirer, GASGAS Motorsports Director : “Augusto completes a special ‘all-Spanish’ flavor for the first year of the GASGAS story in MotoGP. He has worked great with Aki and his team, fought hard on the track and showed that he knows how to make the difference in a very close championship where we have seen quite a few different winners. We feel that he has done everything to earn his chance next to Pol in 2023 and to discover what MotoGP is all about. He is about to take the toughest step, where the competition is so strong, but we believe in him and he also believes in us and that’s the best reason to take a step forward.”
