Diogo Ventura is near the podium in the World Enduro Championship at Solsona

06/04/2014
The Portuguese Gas Gas rider has finished in fourth position in the second day of the opening round of the Enduro World Championship held at the village of Solsona.
The encouraging results obtained on Saturday for the official team, Gas Gas Factory Pons Racing have been followed by a substantial improvement by the young Portuguese rider, Diogo Ventura, who finished in fourth position in the Junior category on his EC300.

The rider from de Gois Portugal has shown a noticeable improvement, mainly due to better riding in the Special Tests and without losing much time in the Extreme Test, where he did not go as fast as his rivals. Still, Diogo has given his maximum effort in the Cross Test, managing to.

Yes, Diogo Ventura has shown great results, but also, the French rider, Antoine Basset had a good weekend in his debut with Gas Gas in the hotly contested Enduro 3 category of the World Cup. He was pleased with the performance of the Gas Gas EC300 and believes that he can improve his results in future races. Today he finished ninth, but in front of more experienced riders. The Catalan rider Arnau Solà did not finish due to pain suffered in his wrist related to his recent surgery, and the Swedish rider Tommy Sjostrom failed to finish due to his suffering from the stomach flu.

The Youth Cup Gas Gas rider, Chile's Esteban Lanz, ended today in twelfth position with the EC 125, but with better feelings than the previous day. Today, the member of the Gas Gas School of Champions, has lost a lot of time with two crashes in the Enduro Test.

Antoine Basset, Enduro 3
"I think in my first race with Gas Gas has not gone that bad. In this category there are very good riders and it takes some time to get great results. But I felt very good, the specials were nice and I’m comfortable with the EC300. Maybe if we work a little more, we can fight for a podium: it has good power and is very easy to ride."

Diogo Ventura, Junior
"Yesterday, with several falls, I had no rhythm, but today I think I've surprised many people. Not making good time on the Extreme, but I’ve recovered in the Cross Test. I'm happy because I’ve played for the title. We are doing well and I want to thank Gas Gas Factory Pons Team for their brilliant work this weekend. If there is a problem, they solve it right away. "

Esteban Lanz, Youth Cup
Today I felt better than yesterday, with better times in the cross test and Extreme. In the Enduro Test I was not comfortable and I have fallen twice. I have to improve quickly, and keep adapting to the 125".
