Robert Jonas, VP Motorsports Offroad: “This is another milestone for GASGAS Motorcycles. Knowing that Glenn, Ivo, Jeremy and Simon will be heading back into MXGP and MX2 competition on the new GASGAS MC 450F and MC 250F factory machines is a proud and important moment for all involved.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

Bike prepping circa 1982. Working on my Husky, in the background you can see the Bel Ray banner my little brother borrowed at the 1974 Carlsbad USGP, a Maico butt-bag and of course my Jones sweat band. Nice ‘stash.
