Torrot GasGas NA Inc. is pleased to welcome Pennsylvania’s Thorn Devlin to join the GasGas North America race effort. The UNDEFEATED 2017 Expert AA National Enduro Champion will bring a great amount of eagerness and expertise to our growing racing efforts during the 2018 season. Operations Manager Mark Berg is very excited to have Thorn be a part of the GasGas family:

“We are thrilled to have Thorn riding our XC300 GasGas in 2018. Thorn has gained so much speed and skill during the last couple of years, and it will be an exciting year to help him continue to grow.”

Thorn will be aboard the new 2018 XC300 machine at all stops on the Full Gas Sprint Enduro tour. In addition, Devlin will be competing in the National Enduro premier NE Pro 1 division. Despite the fact that this will be Thorn’s first year in the foremost division in NEPG, we look forward to some great rides after seeing his potential last season.

Torrot GasGas is also pleased to welcome Paige-Ruane, Inc., as a major supporter to Thorn’s 2018 racing efforts. A leader in Powersports Insurance, Paige-Ruane, Inc will play a large role in supporting Mr Devlin in his racing. Owner Ron Ruane cannot wait for the new season to start:  After watching Thorn’s progress over the last few years, it is clear he is a very fast rider, and I think he will be able to transition to GasGas very easily. I am very familiar with the GasGas brand and look forward to the 2018 Full Gas Sprint Enduro series. PRI Powersports Insurance and GasGas will make for a formidable partnership in the off-road racing world starting in 2018!

The season starts in February, and Thorn has been already logging hours on the new bike with great anticipation for the racing to start:

Joining the GasGas Team is a very big and exciting step in my career. The opportunities given to me by GasGas for my first year as a Pro rider are humbling and exhilarating; I am excited to be able to showcase my talent as an ambassador for the GasGas brand. The new XC300 is competitive right out of the box; impressive is an understatement, and it deserves to be on top. My plans for the 2018 season are to put my GasGas up on the box while I continue to develop myself and my riding on and off the track.

- GasGas
- Paige-Ruane, Inc.
- Moose Racing
- Sidi
- 100%
