Johnny Aubert Signs with Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team for 2018 | News

The Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team announces the signing of Johnny Aubert. The two-times world champion enduro rider joins forces with the factory in Salt as a rider and brand image.

Two weeks ago Gas Gas announced the incorporation of Giovanni Sala as Team Manager of the Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team project and this week it is time for another new face for the team. Gas Gas is pleased to announce the signing of the two-times world enduro champion Johnny Aubert.

The 37-year-old French rider joins the Gas Gas family as a luxury reinforcement for its renewed competition structure. Aubert will compete in a National Championship, yet to be determined, and in the French classics on the new Gas Gas EC300. A definitive sports program will be announced after the coming EICMA show in Milan.

“I am very excited to be putting in the cornerstone of this house in the renewal of the brand and demonstrate the qualities of their motorcycles to the Gas Gas enthusiasts. I am sure that this is the beginning of a great adventure between us” emphasised Aubert after signing with the Salt factory for two years.

With two titles and 38 GP wins behind him, Johnny Aubert has always stood out as one of the fastest and most complete drivers in the Enduro World Championship. His beginnings in motocross, a speciality in which he was proclaimed 80 cc World Champion in 1993, when only 13 years old, took him to the United States to compete in AMA Motocross and Supercross. This is the great league of this speciality, where the French driver forged his refined technique and explosiveness in the specials. Virtues that, a few years later and now back in Europe, took him to conquer the Enduro World Championship in both 2008 and 2009.

Two E2 world crowns to which Aubert also added two world sub-championships and two national enduro championships in France and Italy, as well as several victories with the ‘Bleus’ in the Olympics of this speciality, the International Six Days of Enduro. A competition that the French rider has won three times with his country – in the 2010, 2012 and 2013 editions – and two individually, as an absolute winner, in 2007 and 2010.
