Swedish rookie Isak Gifting (DIGA Procross GASGAS) underlined his indisputable potential with a fantastic fifth overall in MX2 at yesterday’s MXGP of Garda Trentino after backing up a strong sixth in race one with third in the final moto.
“A great end to the season for me,” he said. I felt good on the bike all day and it showed in the results. Physically I felt strong, which is good this late in the season. Another podium finish in race two is another great result for me and the team.
“Joining the team to end the season as a fill-in rider has been fantastic. It was a great opportunity that I grabbed with both hands and it’s been a great experience. It has helped me to improve every part of me. My physical strength, my mentality and, most of all, my riding.
“Knowing that I will return to the DIGA Procross team for next season means that I can focus on my training over the winter. I am in good hands with the team and I can’t wait for next season to start already!”
