Latvian former world champion signs new deal for 2021
Former MX2 world champion Pauls Jonass is leaving Rockstar Energy Husqvarna to join forces with Brian Bogers on the Standing Construct Gas Gas team next season.
The Latvian – 250 champ in 2017 – hasn’t been in action since the Dutch GP at Valkenswaard at the start of March after he was sidelined by a training crash but he’s now almost fully fit and looking forward to the challenge of a new team.
“I’m really excited for my future with Gas Gas,” he said. “I have to thank the Standing Construct team for believing in me while I have been injured but I will be back to 100 per cent and then I can start testing with the team.
“It’s an exciting time for me and my rehabilitation is going very well. I’m looking forward to a great future together with Gas Gas and I look forward to achieving some great results when the 2021 season starts.”
Dutchman Bogers currently sits 12th in the MXGP title chase thanks to a rock-solid second half of the season.
“It’s a great feeling to be on the Standing Construct Gas Gas team for 2021,” said Bogers. “I’m really looking forward to next season as I know the team is very professional and the bike is great. They have had impressive results over recent years so it gives me a lot of confidence.”
