Gas Gas Motors are finally back in full operation with their first batch of enduro machines rolling off the production.
It’s a case of good times at the Gas Gas plant in Salt, near Barcelona, Spain with the new era of the brand heralding the first of their EC 300 Racing bikes.
The Torrot takeover of Gas Gas has also now allowed for the reorganisation of their USA structure.
The company has opened a new distribution centre in South Dakota and next summer will be establishing a new headquarters in California.
The firm commitment to Gas Gas North America Inc. is reflected in the project personally led by Iván Contreras, CEO and company owner; Joaquín Perlés, Director of Business Development and Digital Marketing; Mark Berg, COO, and Rod Overstreet, Sales Manager, supported by David Martínez, Head of International Sales. Gas Gas has a firm commitment to the USA.
And while Jonathan Barragan and Diogo Ventura front the firm in EnduroGP, there’s also race news stateside too.
GasGas CEO Ivan Contreras has enlisted the talents of AMA/FIM SAG/AFTRA Pro Motorcycle Stuntman Tj Austin to Coach/Run/Test the America's GasGas California International, National, and Regional Race Team for 2016.
The team is made up of a great crew for 2016 of former and new riders for GasGas.
Phil Smage, Gold Medal X Games Champion, AMA EnduroCross/TrialsCross & your Favorite Former Marvel Universe Tour (Captain America) Stunt Rider himself.
Michael Salsman, 3 Time National 2014 thru 2016 Team King of Moto Champion, AMA #2 National Plate holder and 13 Time AMA National TrialsCross Podium winner.
And introducing Megan Griffiths, who is replacing former GasGas Team mate Lexi Pechout, not only with GasGas for the Women's EnduroCross season but also for Team Canada Women's ISDE.
