Jie Jeng debuts with Gas Gas and becomes the first Chinese rider to compete in the World Championship

22/05/2017

Jie Jeng, the rider from the People’s Republic of China makes his debut as a ‘wild card’ with Gas Gas in the first event in the new TrialGP World Championship held last weekend in Camprodón (Girona)

The rider from the People’s Republic of China had only received confirmation for his participation as an invited rider in the Spanish Trial GP from the International Motorcycle Federation (FIM) a few weeks earlier. Jie Jeng experienced his debut under in the World Championship with the support of the Gas Gas team. The dates 13th and 14th May have become dates to remember, as Jie Jeng with his first time experience in Camprodón, has become the first rider from the Federation of Motorcycle Sports in China to participate in a Trial World Championship event.

Jeng made his debut on one of the new Gas Gas TXT 250 E4 bikes from the company from Girona in the Trial2 category, a first step towards TrialGP in the World Championship. This represents a first contact with the highest level of international competition, with constant support from the Gas Gas team and his course assistant-the highly experienced Francesc Recio-, whose satisfaction will always be a happy memory for the Chinese rider.  

The Gas Gas rider suffered for his youth and lack of experience in this tough Trial2 category. Jeng finished in 22nd place after a tricky start, not just for him but for all the riders in the Spanish GP. They all had to struggle through the terrible adversities of mud after the intense rain and hail storm affecting the event at its half-way point.
