26/01/2014 - The new rider for the Spanish Gas Gas brand did not find his rhythm in the special on the Mexican track and finished in ninth place. Gibert maintains his fifth overall position.
The fourth round of the World Championship SuperEnduro was held in the Mexican city of Guadalajara with great success as the crowd filled the VFG Arena.
Dani Gibert had a difficult night in his debut with Gas Gas. The particularities of the track did not let the Catalan rider show off his extraordinary talent that has allowed him to contest for the podium in some previous rounds.
After practice where he finished in eighth place, in the first final he improved and was able to finish seventh. In the middle final, his sleeve got entangled with another rider and he finished eighth. In the third and last final, Gibert was pressing for a good result, but suffered two falls that left him in ninth. Despite not getting a satisfactory result, the Gas Gas rider holds the fifth position in the overall championship standings.
The next round will be held in Barcelona, on Sunday February 9th at the Palau Sant Jordi, in the Catalan city.
