GasGas has signed Isak Gifting alongside Simon Langenfelder in its Diga Procross GasGas Factory Racing team for the 2021 MX2 World Championship.

After beginning the year in EMX250, Gifting has been a fill-in rider at GasGas and turned heads with a fifth-place result overall at Lommel 3 on Sunday.

“It’s an amazing feeling to continue with the Diga Procross GasGas team in 2021 as a full factory rider,” 19-year-old Gifting said. “Riding grands prix has been a dream of mine since I was a little boy and now I’ve made it. Racing for a factory team, it’s just unbelievable.

“The bike is fantastic and having a solid team around me with a great manager, mechanics and a trainer gives me a lot of confidence. I have a great feeling going into 2021 – I can’t wait to have a full winter of testing with the team and I’m sure that together we can achieve some great results.”

Meanwhile, Langenfelder will return to the team for 2021, his second term of MX2 World Championship action. Having shown flashes of speed throughout this season before an untimely leg injury, the young German is fully focused on his recovery and looking ahead to prepare for the new season.
