The new team will field promising talents Simon Längenfelder and Jeremy Sydow in the MX2 class.
The German crew will make the step to the MX2 category with 250cc machinery and with two of Germany’s brightest prospects contemplating their first campaign at world championship level.
The 19-year-old Sydow finished sixth in the 2019 EMX250 European Championship and grabbed his first podium finish at the Grand Prix of Latvia (also the scene of his first top three moto result).
The youngster suffered an injury at the beginning of the season but immediately grabbed attention with his race-leading speed at Kegums. He made his MX2 debut at the Grand Prix of Italy last summer and impressed with a top 10 classification in the second sprint at Imola.
Längenfelder, aged just 15, was third in EMX125 with seven top-three appearances from the 14 motos, including overall podium results in Italy, Germany and Sweden and victory in Belgium.
He also stood out in selection for Team Germany at the recent Motocross of Nations in Holland (pictured above, bike No.26) and was fourth in the FIM Junior World Championship. Längenfelder will push straight into MX2 for 2020.
Jeremy Sydow said: “I’m really happy and thankful to have the opportunity to ride as a GasGas supported rider next season. It will be my second year with the team and I appreciate the trust the guys have in me and I will give everything to be as fast as possible! I’m looking forward to the season already.”
Simon Längenfelder said: “It’s great to be riding a GasGas bike next year, it’s something different but we know we will have the right equipment for our first MX2 season. I have a lot to learn, but I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m really looking forward to some good winter preparation with the team.”
