GasGas is making a push to get its name back out in the American motorcycling landscape. Herein is the company’s press release from the Second Annual Tough Like RORR.
GasGas Factory U.S. rider, Broc Hepler put the extreme enduro world on notice that GasGas is coming back stronger than ever with a solid top ten performance at the 2nd annual TOUGH LIKE RORR event in Tamaque, PA on July 2nd & 3rd. With over 5 hours of racing on some of most grueling terrain in PA this race truly tested man and machine. Hepler came out with an 8th place finish against a stacked field of talented riders beating some top factory riders in the process. Just finishing the event was victory for most, but to place in the top Ten in his first try at this style event was beyond our expectations.
Hepler said, “My Factory GAS GAS EC300 worked very well for the rocky conditions. Tough Like RORR needs a more treacherous name to do the event justice. It was a great event that the club put on with spectator viewing spots and fresh tight trail. With the super technical conditions mixed with the 5 hours of race time I felt a bit of out of my league but the experience was all in all a good one. If you want a difficult race with long laps then this is for you.“
Team Manager Johnny Barber said, “I’m excited to see Hepler trying some different style events. I know races like Tough Like RORR aren’t his forte but it just goes to show how well rounded of a rider he really is. To come out your first time riding this style of an event and place in the top 10 is incredible to me. I think this event was a good experience for him as he continues to progress as a top off-road contender.“
