Isak Gifting joined the DIGA Procross Factory Juniors team at round nine, arguably becoming the stand-out rider of the 2020 MX2 World Championship. Since then, he’s done nothing other than deliver impressive results and the MXGP of Garda Trentino was no different! A sixth-place finish in the opening moto set a positive tone for the day, with the MC 250F rider charging to an impressive third in race two. In claiming fifth overall, it elevated the Swede to 12th in the final championship standings despite the only contesting 10 of the 18 rounds.
Isak’s teammate Michael Sandner also ended the season strongly, scoring points despite crashes in both races. Since joining the DIGA Procross team, Sandner’s shown true determination by battling for position in each and every moto, with the Austrian’s best overall result of 12th coming at round 16.
Isak Gifting:“A great end to the season for me. I felt good on the bike all day and it showed in the results. Physically I felt strong, which is good this late in the season. Another podium finish in race two is another great result for me and the team. Joining the team to end the season as a fill in rider has been fantastic. It was a great opportunity that I grabbed with both hands and it’s been a great experience. It has helped me to improve every part of me. My physical strength, my mentality, and most of all, my riding. Knowing that I will return to the DIGA Procross team for next season means that I can focus on my training over the winter. I am in good hands with the team and I can’t wait for next season to start already!”
Michael Sandner:“It was a big a struggle for me today but I still scored points in both races, which is good. Some mistakes in both races cost me some positions, which is disappointing and in the first race I was in the first turn crash so it was good to get into the points in that one. Being part of the DIGA Procross team for just over half of the season has been an amazing experience. I am really thankful for the opportunity and the team has been great to me. They are so professional and welcomed me into the team and I’m happy that I was able to score points for them in nearly every race. Thanks guys.”
