Gas Gas has revealed its ambitious commitment for the 2018 season with the stellar signings of Jaime Busto and Jeroni Fajardo.
Fajardo arrives at Gas Gas from Vertigo with expectations of challenging for one of this season’s top rankings, having made it onto the podium twice with his former team last campaign.
Fajardo said: “I’m very motivated by the start of this season. We are giving the bike and new team a debut, and my objective is to take a step forward in the X-Trial World Championship. This move will allow me to continue to improve a great deal over the next two years.
Gas Gas is a fantastic bike and we have great human resources, so I hope to fight for the podium. I would like to thank Torrot, who have chosen me as a Gas Gas Trial Factory Team rider.”
Meanwhile Busto, joins Gas Gas from Repsol Montesa Honda. “I am very happy and motivated to face this season with the Gas Gas team. This is a new challenge for me. I will be on a new bike, one which I’ve always wanted to ride, and to which I have already adapted to quickly.
It’s also a new team, with a very good atmosphere. I’m looking forward to the start of the Championship. We’re going to give it everything and try to finish as high as possible in the X-Trial World Championship that starts in Vendee.”
