Factory TM draft in Anton Gole!
The Factory TM outfit have drafted in Anton Gole to compete in the MX2 World Championship for the rest of the season due to Samuele Bernardini picking up an injury.
Gole competed the first GP with the factory TM squad at Ottobiano where he finished seventeenth and eighteenth in the moto’s. Considering he had only rode with the bike twice before the event just getting points was a good result for the Swede.
Gole had been with the CEC Husqvarna outfit for the beginning of the year which was a privateer setup. He now becomes a factory rider for the rest of the season and will be hoping for some good results as he adapts to the bike.
Anton Gole: “The first meeting I had with the TM guys were at MXGP of France. Samuele was injured and they wanted a fill in rider for the rest of the season. It took me a couple of days to think about everything. I talked to My Swedish sponsors and explained the situation and they gave me the good to go.
So, I tried the bike and then we decided to join the TM factory team. They are really friendly and great in every way. I really like the bike, I just need a couple more hours/races on it to get back to my regular speed. I Really want to thank my “old” sponsors as well as Marco Ricciardi and the whole TM crew for this great opportunity”
