GASGAS SUPPORTS WOMEN'S HARD ENDURO PERFORMANCE AWARD
NEW FOR 2023, GASGAS BACKED AWARD SET TO SHINE A LIGHT ON FEMALE PERFORMANCES IN FIM HARD ENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
With the start of the 2023 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship fast approaching, GASGAS is excited to be getting a little more involved in the HEWC series by officially supporting the Women's Hard Enduro Performance Award. Starting at round one in Serbia, and running throughout the championship, at each of the series’ seven stops one worthy female competitor will have her efforts recognized and be awarded with a super-cool trophy.
The goal of the new award is simple – to highlight the place of women in motorsport, promote and develop female participation, while encouraging more women to take part. Not focused exclusively on the highest finishing female competitor at each event, the Women's Hard Enduro Performance Award will consider all outstanding female performances.
Together with the HEWC series, GASGAS is fully committed to helping push female participation in hard enduro sport to an exciting new level. Who knows, we might soon see a rider capable of matching the incredible successes of GASGAS Brand Ambassador Laia Sanz!
Rene Esterbauer – GASGAS Head of Global Marketing: “GASGAS is all about encouraging all riders to join in the action and especially on two wheels! We're thrilled to be involved with such awards that will hopefully encourage more riders to join the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship and support the new Women’s Hard Enduro Performance Award. In the HEWC, the women race alongside the men and we have seen some incredible performances from GASGAS Brand Ambassador Laia Sanz over the years, we hope this new award will attract more talented racers to the series and support the growth of the sport.”
Winfried Kerschhaggl - FIM Hard Enduro World Championship Manager: “With the Women’s Hard Enduro Performance Award supported by GASGAS we want to provide a platform to highlight and promote the extraordinary performances of our female competitors. Especially as they compete on a level playing field with their male competitors in the Hard Enduro World Championship. Riders like Laia Sanz, Sandra Gomez, and Jane Daniels have achieved great things, but ultimately, we want to see more and more female riders compete on a regular basis. With this award, we hope it will help us work towards that goal and make a positive and proactive step forward in Hard Enduro.”
