Big news in motocross where Fantic will be present in four classes counting on three highly prestigious and professional structures.
Fantic returns to line up at the starting gate of the MXGP world championship and does so in great style: the Dutch structure led by Louis Vosters will manage the vehicles of the Fantic Factory Racing MXGP team engaged in the premier class, thanks to the great experience gained in years of international competitions always at the highest levels. The riders who will take the Fantic XXF 450 to the race, under the guidance of team manager Vitaliy Tonkov, the champion Glenn Coldenhoff, who in 2023 achieved 5 podiums and has been the undisputed protagonist in MXGP in the last 5 years. Together with him, the promising rookie Roan Van de Moosdjik.
Fantic also strengthens its commitment in the MX2 World Championship and in the EMX250 European Championship, entrusting the Fantic Factory Racing MX2 team to the Modena-based SM Action structure of Matteo Migliori and Emanuele Giovannelli. The Fantic standard bearers in the MX2 world championship will be the Dutch Kay Karssemakers, vice champion in EMX250 who deservedly moves up in category, and the Spaniard David Braceras. In EMX250, the Frenchman Alexis Fueri is confirmed.
The Fantic Factory Racing EMX125 team is also completely new and very young. Daniele Marchese’s SDM team will field Simone Mancini, the Hungarian Noel Zanocz and the Belgian Douwe Van Mechgelen, in the hotly contested European eighth-litre championship.
FANTIC FACTORY RACING ENDURO TEAMS
Strengthened by the five titles won this year in the Enduro World Championship, Fantic is expected to be a protagonist again next season, again with two teams.
Simone Albergoni will continue to lead the Fantic Factory Enduro team, which has become Fantic’s ‘school of champions’ , thanks to the 18 titles won in the last 3 years. Together with him, the highly confirmed riders who have conquered their respective categories will make the jump in category: the Junior Enduro world champion Jed Etchells, the Junior 2 champion Albin Norrbin, who will make their debut in the EnduroGP, the premier class, and the world champion of the Youth Kevin Cristino class. The dominator of the 2023 season will move up a category and will compete in the next championship astride a larger displacement motorbike.
Alongside the three champions, the new signing Axel Semb, another protagonist of the season just concluded in the Junior class.
Deserved promotion for Antonio Specia’s Fantic Factory Junior team, which sees the excellent results obtained this year rewarded by moving from the European championship to the world championship. The team will be present with the four-time world champion Jane Daniels, supported by the young Valentino Corsi and Pietro Scardina.
