The last round of the Spanish Enduro
Championship in Valls de Torruella this past weekend has put an end to
the contractual relationship between Danny McCanney and Gas Gas Motos.
The two sides are detaching amicably after two years in which McCanney
has become one of the most coveted drivers in the paddock and one of the
greatest in the World of Enduro. The rider from the Isle of Man, who
debuted in the hands of the Girona brand, had became the spearhead of
the Gas Gas School of Champions Project, which aims at training young
enduro riders (and trial) at the highest level.
When Danny was 19 years old and
inexperienced in international races, Gas Gas and the Great Britain
importer, decided to go for the talented McCanney, who immediately
responded with his particular riding style and professionalism. The
results were immediate when last year he finished third in Junior in the
FIM Enduro World Championship. But undoubtedly his greatest achievement
came just months later when he won the world championship in the same
category Superenduro at the handlebars of his Gas Gas EC 300 Racing.
The 2013 season concludes with his
third place ranking in the WEC, a podium with Britain in the ISDE in
Sardinia, and sub-champion In the Spanish National Enduro Championship
in the E3 category. Gas Gas wishes him every success in the future.
