2016 GAS GAS Team

Official GasGas USA riders for Trial and Enduro.

 Los Angeles, California – May 10th, 2016.

 GasGas continues its activity in the USA not only on the production side but also in the competition. 10 AMA National Trials Champion, Geoff Aaron, will be back to run with the red team for the endurocross season. As the CEO of GasGas, Ivan Contreras, said “We are proud that one of the best American trial riders ever, chooses GasGas as the best bike he can ride and compete”. Geoff will continue his expo’s and compete in the 2016 Endurocross series, where he has been present the latest years, including podium at the 2015 Las Vegas Enduro Cross.

 Broc Hepler and John Barber form the East team of the factory in USA. Hepler, coming from the National Motocross and riding in Enduro for GasGas is a great asset to be competitive and help build a strong future. Also, John Barber is the East Coast Promotions manager and his experience as a National and International champion (ACES Enduro Series, National Enduro Overall in Indiana, plus a few ISDE medals) is a valuable support to complement and support Heplers performance. GasGas looks forward to developing and growing our race efforts in the east with Mr Barber at the controls.

 For the West Coast, the “GasGas California Racing” team is formed by four experienced and new riders. TJ Austin (AMA/FIM Pro Motorcycle rider) will run and coach this crew that will cover the West Coast races in 2016. Phil Smage, Gold Medal X Games Champion, AMA EnduroCross/TrialCross. Michael Salsman, 3 Time National 2014 through 2016 Team King of Moto Champion, AMA #2 National Plate holder and

13 Time AMA National TrialsCross Podium winner. The fourth rider is Megan Griffiths, that will be representing GasGas not only for the Women´s EnduroCross season but also for Team Canada Women´s ISDE.

 In words of Ivan Contreras “We are excited to have such professionals and champions riding our GasGas bikes and taking the top positions that we have been holding for 30 years both in Europe and USA.”
