16/05/2013
The Rally-Raid rider Jordi Viladoms will participate in the Sardegna Rally race, the third round of the Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, riding a Gas Gas EC 450F with the Baja kit.
The Sardegna Rally race will take place from May 31st to June 5th, the third round of the Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, in which Gas Gas rider Jordi Viladoms will be present, he is the reigning champion of the Italian round.

Viladoms, who got the win in the 2012 Sardegna Rally, is one of the best riders in the field and after participating in a Championship event in Spain on the Gas Gas Enduro, rider and team decided to agree to a continuation of the agreement with a view of preparing for the Dakar Rally.

The Rally of Sardinia is one of the more complicated tests in the Cross-Country Rallies World Championship, especially in regards to navigation. For the particular characteristics of the race, most participants do not use a rally bike, but an Enduro motorcycle with navigation instruments and a special kit that allows greater autonomy.

Jordi Viladoms participated in the Valverde del Camino Enduro, Spanish Championship, with the official team, Gas Gas Factory Team Pons. It was an agreement to provide continuity in Viladoms’ preparations, which also included participation in Enduro or National rally-raid races.

The Sardegna Rally Race will begin on Friday, May 31st in Alghero with inspections and the prologue stage, and ends in San Teodoro on Wednesday June 5th after traveling more than 1,500 kilometers, (930miles) more than half being timed sections.

Jordi Viladoms:
I am grateful to Gas Gas, which has given me this opportunity to continue my training as a rider participating in raids with the Gas Gas EC 450 F in the Sardegna Rally Race. I wanted to defend my status as defending champion of the race and this was the best option to do so in the best conditions. Also, I have full confidence in the team, since the assistance of the Pons Gas Gas Factory Team will not be new to me. Sergi Duran was my mechanic during my time in Enduro and several rallies. I know the mechanics and know I will be well supported”.
