Gas Gas has scored a real coup in the build-up to next year's FIM World Enduro Championship, by snaring the signature of longtime Team KTM racer Ivan Cervantes to race for the Spanish brand.

Here's the news:

Ivan Cervantes, five times world indoor enduro champion, has signed to ride in the Spanish and World Enduro Championships during the next three seasons and also assist in development of new products related to his specialty, enduro.

Both Ivan and the CEO of Gas Gas Motos, Ramon Puente (pictured), were especially pleased and excited about the new challenge presented to them.

Mr Puente said: "After overcoming some difficult years, the arrival of a rider of this kind has been a big boost to Gas Gas, and also Gas Gas fans. Ivan will contest the E2 class aboard an EC250 and also work with the R&D department with the development of new products for the future. Ivan's appearance at the recent Mlian Motorcycle show was a great way to release the 2011 range of Gas Gas bikes and show that Gas Gas is serious about its commitment to racing and future products."

Ivan Cervantes said: “After winning five world championships I'm very excited to now have the opportunity to win many more titles but this time with Gas Gas. The truth is that the treatment and commitment Gas Gas has given me is incredible and Gas Gas only see the vision and desire to win and build the world’s best off-road motorcycles. I am convinced we can do great things together, but I know we have to work hard and we can only do our best."
