Jaime Busto has signed with Vertigo, it has been officially announced today, with the trial star set to contest the TrialGP World Championship and the remaining rounds of the Spanish Championship.
The 21-year-old Spaniard will debut on the Vertical R in Italy this weekend for the TrialGP 2019 season opener.
With many successful results, Busto leads a new generation of riders that are going to play an important role in the sport over the coming years, which is why Vertigo didn’t hesitate when the opportunity of signing him came up – Busto and Gas Gas parted ways only a few days ago.
“Vertigo considers Busto’s youth, ambition, talent and motivation give him what it takes to fight absolutely for everything,” the firm said. “From the very first moment, Busto’s affection towards Vertigo’s proposal was very positive, especially after a test run aboard the Vertical R.”
With Busto joining the factory team, Vertigo reinforces its bet on talented young prospects, securing a healthy line-up of world-class riders with a great potential to develop in the coming years. Jorge Casales, Berta Abellan, Lorenzo Gandola, Pau Martinez and Jaime Busto himself, make up a factory squad that under the watchful eye of 12-times world champion Dougie Lampkin, is set to fight for the top spots in the TrialGP World Championship.
