ON THE GAS FOR MXGP24: RED BULL GASGAS FACTORY RACING

The wait is nearly over! As the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship season rolls into sight, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team is gearing up for what promises to be an awesome season ahead. With three top-tier riders locked and loaded, as well as a winter of intensive preparation in the books, the team is ready to go bar to bar with the competition right from the first gate drop on March 10th.

  • Jorge Prado is ready to defend his MXGP world championship title with Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing.
  • Simon Längenfelder is eyeing improvement on his impressive back-to-back 3rd place finishes in the MX2 World Championship.
  • New to the team, exciting talent Marc-Antoine Rossi is now living his dream with Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing.

Defending 2023 MXGP World Champion Jorge Prado’s attention is now fully on MXGP 2024, with a comprehensive bike testing schedule, as well as a planned race before the season opener in Argentina on March 10th. Better still, Jorge's peak fitness and fired-up attitude signal that the reigning world champ is all set to pick up from where he left off in 2023.

In MX2, 20-year-old Simon Längenfelder enters his third year with the team. The phenomenally talented German rider has competed in GASGAS colors since the manufacturer debuted in the Grand Prix series in 2020; after which, he signed to the elite Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing awning for the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship. '516' made an immediate splash by dominating the season-opening Grand Prix of Great Britain, and then went on to secure third in the championship standings. In 2023, Längenfelder scored a phenomenal 13 top-five finishes, nine podiums, and two wins, resulting in another third-place overall finish in the standings. Now with a solid off-season behind him, all eyes are now on Längenfelder as he aims to improve on his already impressive back-to-back 3rd place overall championship finishes.

Newcomer to the team, and a widely tipped breakout talent of the 2023 FIM Motocross World Championship, is Marc-Antoine Rossi. The young Frenchman stated it is a dream come true to have joined the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team. Rossi's winter training in Belgium and Italy, under the guidance of team manager and coach Davide De Carli, has focused on enhancing his performance across different terrains. Living in Rome has brought Rossi closer to his team, creating a supportive family atmosphere. Rossi raced in EMX250 last year and secured his maiden win in the class in Germany. Then at the Grand Prix of France, where he debuted in the MX2 class as a wildcard, he underlined his potential at the highest level with 8-6 scores, also proving that he will be a source of confidence as he enters his first full season.

With the season set to go live on March 10 for the MXGP of Patagonia-Argentina, the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing squad is looking forward to showcasing their hard work, talent, and determination on the global stage, aiming to add more victories and titles to their already impressive record. Let the battle commence!

Davide De Carli (Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing Team Manager):

Looking ahead to the 2024 season, the feeling within the Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing team is very good. Having Jorge, our defending MXGP champion, alongside the incredible talent of Simon Längenfelder in MX2, and welcoming the fresh energy of our new signing, Marc-Antoine Rossi, in MX2, we are excited for an extraordinary year. Each rider brings a unique strength and determination to the team, and together, we share a single goal: to bring the speed, defend our titles, and reach new heights. We've prepared very thoroughly, everyone is feeling in top condition. For sure, the competition is tough, but we are more than ready.
