Standing Construct Racing wordt het officiele fabrieksteam van GASGAS in 2020

Op dinsdag kon u al op Motocrossplanet lezen dat Glenn Coldenhoff in de toekomst op een GASGAS uit zal gaan komen in het wereldkampioenschap MXGP.

Standing Construct Racing wordt het officiele fabrieksteam van GASGAS in 2020

Dit moment zal al in 2020 zijn. Het volledige Standing Construct team zal de overstap maken naar GASGAS waardoor ook Ivo Monticelli op de GASGAS uit zal komen in het wereldkampioenschap MXGP. Naast het fabrieksteam in de motorcross zal Laia Sanz voor GASGAS gaan rijden in de Dakar Rally en zal Taddy Blazusiak voor het merk uitkomen in de endurowedstrijden!

Commentaar Glenn Coldenhoff: ''Mijn teammanager belde mij en vertelde mij over de mogelijkheid om met GASGAS te gaan rijden. Ik was gelijk vereerd. Om de status als fabrieksteam te krijgen is een beloning voor al het harde werken en de professionaliteit die we hebben laten zien. Het is een grote stap voor het team om een fabriek achter je te hebben met al hun ondersteuning en ervaring. Ik kijk er naar uit om met deze geweldige groep mensen van Standing Construct te blijven werken en ik ben vereerd en gemotiveerd om dit nieuwe merk te mogen vertegenwoordigen in het wereldkampioenschap MXGP.''


Commentaar Tim Mathys, eigenaar Standing Construct GASGAS Factory Racing Team: ''Dit is een belangrijke nieuwe stap in het verhaal van Standing Construct. 2019 was ons beste seizoen tot nu toe. We zagen de beste resultaten uit hun carriere voor Glenn en Ivo en ons team kon ze van het juiste voorzien zodat ze deze resultaten konden behalen. We hebben er het volste vertrouwen in om aan het nieuwe hoofstuk met GASGAS te beginnen. Het is een eer om het eerste MXGP team te zijn dat deze bekende badge opgespeld krijgt. Ik wil het GASGAS race management en Pierer Mobility AG bedanken voor hun ondersteuning. We zullen onze kleur veranderen maar niet de ambitie om vooraan te rijden in de MXGP.''

Lees hieronder het uitgebrachte persbericht:


Renowned offroad manufacturer GasGas will radically expand their FIM World Championship competition program for 2020 and will enter factory racing teams in new disciplines such as Motocross, Rally and Enduro.
GasGas will make a historic inaugural step into MXGP courtesy of an alliance with the Standing Construct squad, expand their presence and competitiveness in Rally thanks to linking up with high profile record-setter Laia Sanz and host the multi-title winning talents of Taddy Blazusiak in the arenas of Enduro and Extreme Enduro.
Significantly ‘Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing’ is the very first works Motocross Grand Prix team for the marque and boasts the exciting combination of Glenn Coldenhoff and Ivo Monticelli on MXGP machinery in 2020. Coldenhoff secured 3rd position in the 2019 MXGP standings and has owned his class in the last two editions of the FIM Motocross of Nations. Monticelli impressed in his second term in the premier division in 2019 to fill 11th spot in the championship.
Laia Sanz, a serial FIM Women’s trial world champion and now almost ten years as an Enduro and Rally record-breaker (Female category winner and highest ranked female finisher at the Dakar Rally with a personal best of 9th overall in 2015) will lead the charge for the revitalized GasGas effort in Rally. The soon-to-be 34 year old will disembark to the middle east in a matter of weeks for the 42nd Dakar Rally beginning on January 5th.
It is hard to find a bigger name in the world of Enduro than Taddy Blazusiak and the decorated 36 year old Pole is the perfect vanguard for the GasGas name in the 2020 WESS Enduro World Championship.
Glenn Coldenhoff: “My team manager called me and told me about the opportunity for us to ride with GasGas and right away I was really honored. To reach the status of a factory team is a reward for all their hard work and professionalism. It is a really big step for the team; to have a factory behind you with all their support and resources. I am really looking forward to continue working with this great group of people at Standing Construct, and I am super-honored and motivated to represent this new brand in the MXGP class.”
Tim Mathys, Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing Team Principal: “This is an important new step in the story of Standing Construct. 2019 was the best year yet for us: we saw career-best performances from Glenn and Ivo and our staff were able to give them exactly what they needed to get the results. We are full of confidence and with extra experience to be able to begin this new chapter with GasGas. It is an honor to be the first MXGP team to carry that famous badge and start a new era. I want to give thanks to the GasGas race management at Pierer Mobility AG for the support. We will change our color but not the ambition to keep being at the front of MXGP.”
Laia Sanz: “When the announcement was made about GasGas’ future, things happened very fast and so we had the challenge to prepare very quickly for Dakar 2020. We are in a positive way; the bike looks great and we are in full preparation for the race in January. The other interesting thing with GasGas is the opportunities it might present me for the future - GasGas is known as a trials bike brand and this is also close to my heart and roots. The page turns for the brand from now, and my goal is to do the best job possible whilst bringing my passion and expertise to the company as we start on a new journey together.”
Taddy Blazusiak: “I’m stoked to be part of this new adventure. I’d been with KTM forever and they are well known for their work and their competitiveness, so this is a fresh direction for me and it’s a privilege to be the first rider of the new GasGas era. I cannot wait to start working and racing with the new GasGas factory team.”
Robert Jonas, VP Motorsports Offroad: “GasGas is another fascinating story for our motorsport department. It is a strong and very recognizable brand, so it’s exciting to see how we can take it into new racing series. When we decided to move GasGas into MXGP for the first time there wasn’t a better choice than Standing Construct. Tim and his crew bring passion and knowledge to their jobs and that has been really easy to see, especially in 2019. Laia has some history with GasGas in Rally and was the natural fit to push the name back to the front at the Dakar. She’ll be an ideal ambassador both on and off the bike. It’s fantastic for us to have a rider of Taddy’s profile and professionalism when it comes to the first steps of the Enduro program. Overall, I would say we have pushed hard to make a competitive statement for GasGas and the next phase of their participation in the racing world; moving forward we’re fully focused for track success on a global scale.”
