Ivan closes the season with a Scratch and E2 victory

17/10/2011
The second position of Jordi Figueras at E3 completed an excellent weekend for the brand.
The Gas Gas team shone prominently at the final race of the Enduro Spanish Championship, played on Sunday in Mont-Roig del Camp (Tarragona), thanks to the demonstration by Ivan Cervantes and Jordi Figueras in E2 and E3, respectively. Ivan triumphed in the intermediate category and at Scratch, while Jordi took the second place in the upper class.

The final competition of the season was raced on a dry and dusty terrain, which made it especially hard work for riders and motorbikes. This didn't stop Cervantes crowned the excellent performance of the EC 250 in the second half of the year with their first overall victory. Boosted by its audience and the fact of riding very close to Cambrils, the Gas Gas rider dominated from the first test and ended up beating for more than half a minute to Cristobal Guerrero and more than forty seconds to Juha Salminen, third Scratch and winner in E1.

Jordi Figueras starred in one of the best races of the year in E3, at all times was in podium positions and even came close to the win, finishing less than nine seconds from victory. The excellent race of Figueras was completed with his eighth Scratch position. Josep Rallo finished in a good sixth in E2, while Arnau Sola was eighth in the same class.

This excellent result is interpreted from the Gas Gas team as a first step in what purports to be the 2012 season in which the entire team is focused now both in terms of development as at the adjustment of motorcycles.

"It was a fantastic race for us. All year I've been chasing this result and finally has arrived. It has also been in front of my friends and my people. I'm very pleased with the team's work in the second half of the season and the evolution of the bike. I don't see this victory as the last possible of 2011, if not the first of 2012. I'm sure that if we keep working well, next season will keep this line. At the end we were runners-up behind Cristobal Guerrero, but my dream now is focused on developing the new bike and fight to regain the title next year".

"It wasn't an easy race, but I'm very happy with this result. Some races have ended very close to the head but we couldn't get it... and finally this time we have shown what is the level where we are. I'm very happy for the team and all my people, because everyone deserves this podium".
