After all the news about new motorcycle manufactures, this had to happen. The Spanish brand JTG, or Jotagas, is bankrupt. Once started by Jordi Tarres, JTG was kinda successful, but never contracted any high level factory riders. Riders like Pol Tarres and Jack Sheppard have competed on a JTG, but Jack left JTG last december and switched to Beta. The Brit was not having a great season on the TRS. There was a constant lack of spare parts and the factory rider even missed a race. Still, the bike was beautiful.
Finally! Gas Gas released their first 2016 motorbike. Continue reading
Marc Colomer will join Gas Gas. The world trials champion from 1996 will work with the Spanish manufacturer, and will focus on the development of the motorcycles. Continue reading

Håkon Pedersen dominates ADAC Hallentrial Ingolstadt
The Norwegian champion Håkon Pedersen had a great night in Germany. Pedersen switched a few months ago to Gas Gas, after several season riding on Ossa. The second place in the qualification was already an impressive achievement and taking victory in the final made his night perfect.
His German teammate Franz Kadlec couldn’t win on home soil, but a second place in the final was not that bad. Kadlec switched a few months ago to Gas Gas as well.
The Italian rider Gianluca Tournour took third place. This resulted in a full Gas Gas podium. The Spanish factory will be happy with that, after the struggling the last half year.
