In the latest MXGP magazine, Claudio De Carli who owns the Factory GasGas team in the GP paddock has discussed the signing of German talent, Simon Längenfelder who they signed up to contest the MX2 World Championship this year. The start of the season couldn’t have gone any better for Längenfelder as he went 1-1 and dominated the event. 

“I always watch some young riders, usually in the European Championship, and I think the first time I saw Simon was 2019 and he was riding in the 125 class. If I remember well, he had a great race in Lommel, and he was very young’” shared Claudio De Carli.

“I remember I talked about him with Pit Beirer; Simon was in a GasGas team, we were still KTM but when our team passed to the GasGas brand, we wanted a young rider alongside Mattia (Guadagnini) and talking with Pit we decided that Simon could be a good choice” he added.

“I always liked his riding style, very clean and ‘light, but I was sure he could improve a lot, mentally, physically and everything. He joined us in the winter, and he worked so much and is always positive. Before the start of the season, I was sure he could fight with everyone in the MX2 category, but honestly, I could not imagine such a great result in the first GP in Matterley Basin, where he was perfect and unbeatable. I think he can go on like this because he has the mentality and the preparation” Claudio explained.

“Simon showed in the first two GP’s that he is riding to win. We are not putting pressure on him, and we’ll see what the season brings” confirmed Claudio.

“I think that Simon can do really good, he is only 17 years old, so he is improving a lot and we are really positive”, added Davide De Carli.
