Riders


Ricky Russell
XC1 Pro
Veteran Ricky Russell #212 made big improvements in his riding late last year and has carried that into this off-season. With just a handful of weeks before the first race of the year, Ricky is looking strong and hungry to consistently land on the podium.
 
“I’m really excited to enjoy another year with the Coastal GasGas team. Towards the end of the year, everything was really starting to click and our speed was back up to par, so I can’t wait to start the year out strong and healthy ready to battle for wins.”
Johnny Girroir
XC2 Pro
250F ace Johnny Girroir #1 is back on the team with a twist for 2022. Piloting a GasGas EX250F for the final time in the GNCC Series, Girroir will defend last years XC2 title while making the jump to the Open Pro class in the US Sprint Enduro Series on an EX350F.
 
“I’m really excited to go racing this year with the Coastal GasGas team after a successful 2021 season. My confidence is high, my mind is in a great place and I’m in the best shape of my life.”

"I'm excited and looking forward to the upcoming season with the Coastal GasGas Factory Racing team. We had a lot of fun in 2021 and we’re looking for 2022 to be an even better year. I expect Johnny to continue with his success carried over from last season, he’s in good place mentally and physically and that is a very good recipe for another fantastic year. As for Ricky, I think we’ve found some things he’s been missing with riding technique and he made big improvements late last year. I think he’s going to have the season that we know he’s capable of, which is consistently running up front and winning races.”
