New Coastal GASGAS Factory Racing Team sign-up Ricky Russell and Johnny Girroir for the 2021 GNCC and AMA National Enduro seasons.  

Ricky Russell will headline the new Coastal GASGAS team’s efforts racing the GASGAS EX 450F in the Pro XC1 class, while Johnny Girroir will race onboard the EX 250F in the 250 classes. Both riders will compete in the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series and the AMA National Enduro Championship (NEPG), plus select Off-Road events around North America.

The new team, which forms part of GASGAS USA's racing programme, will have eight-time GNCC National Champion Barry Hawk as Team Manager. 

“I’ve been in this sport for many years so it’s very exciting when a great opportunity like this comes along.” Says Hawk.

“The Coastal GASGAS Factory Racing Team is the next level for us and with the resources available from GASGAS along with the infrastructure that we already have in place, I’m looking forward to and expecting great things this season.”

The Coastal GG team joins the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team headed by Justin Barcia racing the Supercross and AMA Motocross championships plus the GASGAS Factory Racing team competing the MotoTrials USA National Championship under the wings of Geoff Aaron.
