Red Bull KTM Factory Racing have announced the signing of a two year contract extension with Spanish enduro star Josep Garcia.
The agreement will see the former Enduro World Champion remain with the team through to the end of the 2023 season, riding the proven KTM 350 EXC-F in the FIM Enduro World Championship and the ISDE.
Joining Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2017, Josep Garcia immediately demonstrated his speed and huge potential by winning the Enduro two World Championship riding the KTM 250 EXC-F. With the team’s focus then switching to the newly formed WESS Championship in 2018, Garcia not only had to rise to the challenge of several new and varied events, but he also had to adjust his riding style to the series’ hard enduro-focused races.
Josep enjoyed success throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons, becoming the first non-French rider to win Trefle Lozerien, claiming victory at BR2 Enduro Solsona, and topping the Enduro one class at the 2019 International Six Days Enduro.
“I’m super happy to extend my contract with KTM for another two years,’ said Garcia. “We have been working together since 2017 and I think it’s the best team to be in, plus I also have a great relationship with my mechanics, Ivan and Daniele.”
“Signing for two more years means the team and I are free to focus on the racing and aim to be at the very top. Continuing with the KTM 350 EXC-F in EnduroGP helps to keep things consistent too, so I can really work on my riding. After that, I’m hoping to experience a few new disciplines and expand my horizons as my career continues!”
