Busto & Gas Gas Part Company

Recommended Posts

Just had an email. No reason given.

"The rider finishes his successful stage in GasGas with the accomplishment of several championships such as the Trial of the Nations Outdoor in 2018, the X-Trial des Nations 2019 and the victory in the Hungarian and Japanese GP in 2018. In addition, the bronze medals at the X-Trial and the Spanish Trial Championship of 2018.

The GasGas family congratulates Jaime for his achievements and wishes him good luck and success for his professional future. "

The reason better be either (a) Busto has a ride elsewhere, or (b) GG has run out of money and can't pay him. Anything else is nuts. I hope he announces a new deal shortly.

Come è noto a TrialWorld, è molto probabile che il marchio con cui Jaime Busto sarà pilota nel 2019 sarà Vertigo

Torrot is pulling the purse strings tight on Gas Gas. Factory Team is pulling back from Enduro World Championship, and now this. Worldwide sales are below targets, and GG is looking to cut costs. They want to furlough 50 or so factory employees, due to this lack of sales.  I think Torrot is beginning to question whether an "Electric Urban Mobility Company" is a good fit, with an "Off Road Motorcycle Company"?

Busto will ride for Vertigo this season, but I'd venture he'll be back to Montesa/Honda, just as soon as Fuji retires.....

Martin Belair says Repsol Factory Team door swings one way.... No matter what Bou thinks of Busto or how good his chances are of a World Championship, he's not going back in that door.

The Gas Gas electric trials bike, the TXT-E is not happening either. After the international advertising push last year none have been produced for sale.

Busto's social media has seemed to indicate he might be taking a year out. He also appears to have been injured (ankle) quite recently.
