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.”
