GasGas North America announces 2019 racing program for Enduro

Torrot GasGas NA Inc. is excited to release the details of their 2019 racing program. Veteran Geoff Aaron leads a young talented group of Factory Riders that are sure to have their GasGas XC250s and XC300s up front at race events across the country next season.

Our four-rider Factory Team lineup consists of Geoff Aaron and JT Baker on the West Coast, while Thorn Devlin flies the GasGas banner in the East with Korie Steede returning for her sophomore year in the GNCC Pro Class.

10-time National Trials Champion and EnduroCross Star Geoff Aaron is back for another year aboard his XC300 and will be a consistent threat in the reinvigorated EnduroCross series.

After missing most of the 2018 season due to injury, Pennsylvania’s Thorn Devlin is excited to get back to action and showcase his talents in the National Enduro and Full Gas Sprint Enduro series. We except that Thorn will have his XC300 singing and battling for the podium all season long.

Rising star JT Baker joins Team GasGas fresh off a stellar performance at the ISDE in Chile, where he took top-honors in the highly-competitive C3 class. In 2019, Baker will set his sights on the WORCS Pro2 and Western Hare Scrambles Pro class aboard an XC300.

Korie Steede from Ohio had a very successful rookie season in the Grand National Cross Country WXC class in her freshman year and looks toward 2019 to keep getting closer to the top aboard her XC250.

The GasGas Regional Support Team is made up of solid local talent that will be challenging for wins at regional events across the US in 2019; our roster is a good mix of familiar faces from last season as well as new members of the GasGas family.

Indiana’s Tyler Vore, North Carolina’s Robby Norwood, Texas’s Zach Ingram, and Florida’s Ron Commo III are all returning for 2019. Joining them are California’s Jake Alvarez, Colorado’s Clayton Gerstner, and Idaho’s Tayson Weeks.

A special welcome is in order for James Flynn, Trent Whisenant, and Tanner Wolfrum; all three of these riders were a part of our School of Champions program in 2018, and we are proud to see them graduate to the Regional Team after the hard work they put in last season.
