Those eagle-eyed among you may have clocked that Gautier Paulin wasn’t wearing his Fox kit in the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team shoot released yesterday. If you’re one of those, well you can feel free to ignore this article. For the rest of you, read on…

Last night SHIFT announced the signing of Paulin to its stable of riders. “It feels amazing to join SHIFT,” Paulin said in a press release. “When I first saw the first sample of 3LUE Label a few months ago, I was immediately so excited for this project, so I’m proud to be part of it!”


GP21 goes into the 2017 season on new machinery following his move from Monster Energy Kawasaki to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team. Paulin will debut the second SHIFT 3LUE Label Limited Edition racewear at the opening round of MXGP in Losail, Qatar.

“This is the most technical gear I’ve ever seen. And it looks really athletic. This is the future and I love it, he exclaimed”

Brand Manager Shift MX Europe, Philippe Casadesus, said: “It’s a great pleasure to welcome GP21 to the SHIFT Syndicate. His unique style and personality are the perfect fit for the Shift MX brand.”
