Gas Gas claimed an important victory when Jonathan Barragan won at the Spanish Enduro Championship on the all-new EC 250 Racing two-stroke.

In November Gas Gas unveiled their new line up of two strokes at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy. 

While looking the business, it wasn’t until last weekend’s opening round of the Spanish enduro series that we got a chance to see if they could do the business.

Scoring a fifth place on day one, Barragan then smashed it on day two to secure a 20-second margin of victory.

"We are ecstatic about this first Scratch victory with the new bike,” told Barragan. "On the first day we knew we had a good enough pace to stay ahead, because our times in the second and third times round were very good. We cannot really ask for more. It's been an amazing debut!

With just three months testing on a brand new bike, naturally enough things were stressful in preparation for the start of the season admitted Barragan…

“The time before the start of the season was difficult for us because we knew we were arriving a little late with the new enduro and we were running out of time, we were late but we did the job well, as we intended. 

“This is a shared victory with them and with the entire factory because behind this new Gas Gas EC 250 Racing there is the effort and work of many people and of a whole factory which we are proud of.”

Having certainly risen from the flames, Gas Gas’ “Project Phoenix” EC 250 Racing looks to be on the right track.
