    Afficher le profil

    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

    Afficher le profil

    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."

    Simon Carlsson: “I’m really looking forward to riding GASGAS. My new bike feels great to ride and I can’t wait to get on the road with the team and start the season. The E-EDR World Cup is growing fast, and the field is strong. But I feel like I learned a lot during my first eMTB race season last year so I’m keen to continue developing and learning new things with GASGAS. It’s going to be a fun year!”

    Johannes Fischbach: “It’s great to join the GASGAS family and do my bit to push ahead with the development of their bikes. I have loved riding eMTB bikes ever since they came out. To race them now at the highest level in the E-EDR with GASGAS is a great opportunity I’m very grateful I got. The team is a natural fit, I can feel the passion for bikes here, so there’s going to be a lot of fun ahead for sure.”

    Alex Marin: “Joining GASGAS is a new chapter that I’m really excited about. It might come as a surprise to people, but with the style and vibe they are putting out, it fits me perfectly so I can see us having a cool time together. I’ve always known the brand having grown up 20 minutes from their factory in Barcelona. When they stepped into ebikes I found it super interesting, so when they gave me the chance to be a part of the family, I knew straight away it was the right decision for me. I want to keep growing as a rider, create great content and tell my story. I’m excited to see how far we can take things.”

    Alexandre Fayolle: “It's an amazing opportunity for me to join GASGAS this year. I'm really excited to work with motivated and professional people to improve my experience on the bike. The E-EDR season starts in June, so we have a little more time to test and try lots of new things! I'm really enjoying the process and can't wait to start the new season with everybody. With the experience I have gained from my last two years in the EWS-E I believe I can be really competitive and even more consistent.”
