GasGas Spain with the Mediser team
MARCH 1, 2021
GasGas wants to continue supporting amateur drivers and private teams and announces its collaboration with Team Mediser for the 2021 season.
There is a need to support small teams that support athletes, and the fact is that many proriders come from Trial and still use their Trial motorcycles for their training sessions.
This philosophy of support for grassroots sports, which is perfectly in line with the values of GasGas as a brand, is what defines the Mediser Trial Team, which has behind its back two years of experience welcoming and promoting young riders in its ranks.
Thus, for the 2021 season, GasGas, in addition to aligning Miquel Gelabert and Jorge Casales in the official GasGas Factory Racing team, GasGas Spain will also offer support to the Mediser Trial Team in the Spanish Trial Championship.
For this season, the team, in addition to changing colors and brand, also changes all its components, which will be from now on: Rafael Salcedo and Joaquín Salcedo (TR3), Mario Santolaya (TR4), Marc Piquer and Marc Freixa Jr. (Junior). and Manuel García Panizo (Veterans).

JANUARY 3, 2021
Arnau Farré has signed for Scorpa for the next season 2021. He will compete in the Trial World Championship in the increasingly disputed and interesting Trial2 category, in which he will opt for the podium and fight for the first places. And as an interesting novelty, he will also compete in the French Championship in its maximum TR1 category, in which it will also fight to win the French title. In addition Arnau will have the support of Comas Trial.
Marc Teissier, owner of Scorpa and Sherco, wants to further promote the Scorpa brand, which until now had remained in the background compared to its couple Sherco. Both are made in the same factory and are almost general motorcycles, although keeping certain peculiarities that make them different. Teissier has always had a special affection for Scorpa, as it was the first brand he founded before it was sold and later recovered. We will surely start to see more Scorpas in the paddocks and in the shops soon.

By 2021 I hope to get a lot of podiums and be able to finish in the top three overall. I know it won’t be easy, but I think I have the level to do it. Right now I am training as much as I can and when I feel 100% confident with the bike I think I will be able to meet my goals.Also, having Albert Cabestany as team manager is great, I will be able to receive very valuable information from him.
