Gas Gas Motos are pleased to announce the signing of Sandra Gómez. The current world champion of SuperEnduro and AMA of Enducross joins the Gas Gas Factory FG Trial Team, where she is going to fight for the national and world trial titles. The rider from Madrid is also to participate in long distance races such as the Scottish Six Days Trial (SSDT) or the Dos Dies d’Arinsal, (The Arinsal Two Days event in Andorra).
Sandra Gómez joining the Gas Gas family means yet another step in the right direction by the Spanish manufacturer in its commitment to trial and its support of women’s competition, something which has been in a state of growth lately. The rider from Madrid gets back on track after a successful story in trial after the 2015 season when she concentrated all her efforts into winning the two most prestigious titles in enduro: the World SuperEnduro, in Europe, and the AMA Enducross Championship, on the other side of the Atlantic, in the USA.
Next on her agenda is her entry for the SSDT 2016, from 2nd to 7th May in Fort William (Scotland), where the rider from Madrid is to have her first taste of competition with Gas Gas. Meanwhile, from July, Sandra Gómez will also be participating in the National and World Trial Championships. The rider from Cercedilla is also set to fight for the crown of the FIM Women's Trial World Championship this coming July which kicks off in the UK, and which this year has three double events: the first in Tong, a second in Valchiampo, in Italy, and the last in Isola 2000, France. As well as all these races, the new Gas Gas rider will also be taking part in the events left in the Women’s Spanish Trial Championship: Pobladura de Regueras (León), Vall de Lord (Lleida), Carnota (A Coruña), Valdemanco (Madrid) and Antas (Almería).
Sandra Gómez: “I’m just so excited to be back with Gas Gas, the brand that I started off with in trial. And the truth is that I’m really motivated and looking forward to beginning my training and fighting to get my first world title in trial. My first race is going to be the ‘Scottish’ in just 2 weeks. So I’m going to be using this time to get used to the new Gas Gas TXT 300 Racing, which I’ve heard so many good things about. I’m absolutely thrilled at the thought of competing”
