POSITIVE DAY FOR GASGAS FACTORY RACING AT MXGP ROUND 17
OUR FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RACERS GET THINGS BACK ON TRACK AT FIRST OF TWO STOPS IN MANTOVA
Bouncing back from some challenging rounds of FIM Motocross World Championship competition, GASGAS Factory Racing has enjoyed a solid day at the MXGP of Lombardia. Producing the best overall result for the team was MX2 ace Isak Gifting who put together two consistent seventh-place finishes for sixth overall. Simon Langenfelder was also on the pace, securing a sixth-place finish in race two while on his way to ninth overall in MX2. In the MXGP class, we were a man down as Pauls Jonass’ broken ribs ruled him out of racing, bringing his 2021 season to an end. Pauls’ teammate Brian Bogers toughed it out for 10th overall after returning from illness.
GASGAS Factory Racing enjoys strong results at MXGP round 17
Gifting on the gas as he places sixth overall in the MX2 class
Final round set to take place this coming Wednesday in Mantova
Isak Gifting: “The first one at Mantova is done and it’s been a really good day for me. My starts weren’t the best, but I was able to make a lot of passes early in each race, push forward, and stay out of trouble. It’s been a difficult season so to have a good result today is a really positive thing for me and I’m definitely aiming to do the same, or better, on Wednesday.”
Isak’s teammate Simon Langenfelder is a consistent racer with the young German following up his 11th overall last time out in Arco with ninth overall at the MXGP of Lombardia. If it wasn’t for a first lap crash in race one, which saw the 17-year-old charge from last to 11th, he may well have ended up even higher as in race two he brought his MC 250F home in a strong sixth place.
