Following two very successful Dakars, which thanks to the efforts of Laia Sanz really helped put GASGAS back onto the global motorsports map, the reins have now been handed over to our new desert charger, Daniel Sanders.

As a former ISDE winner, Sanders clearly has the skills needed to compete at the highest level on two wheels, something he made perfectly clear at the 2021 Dakar. Rocketing to a seriously impressive fourth overall and finishing as best rookie, make no mistake, Daniel can’t wait to see what he can do in 2021 and beyond.

Daniel Sanders – GASGAS Factory Racing: “Being the face of GASGAS in rally is really cool. I’ve not been in rally that long so to be picked up and put on a factory team this early in my career is awesome. I’m so looking forward to racing this year as part of this team. It’s been such a long time since the Dakar and with the world championship coming up really soon, I just can’t wait to be competing again. I’m excited for the future, the opportunity that I have, and it’s going to be a great year of racing. Let’s go!” (source: gasgas)
