Rho (MI), November 11, 2023
At EICMA 2023, there are not only the production models to parade to attract the always numerous audience at the Fantic stand but also the motocross and enduro models that have won more than 30 international titles in the last three years.
Together with them, there are also the riders and team managers protagonists of the 2024 season. In fact, Fantic took advantage of the Milan event to present the factory teams, both motocross and enduro, that will carry the name of the Veneto-based company in the world and European championships next year.
FANTIC FACTORY MX TEAMS
In motocross, Fantic presents some novelties for 2024: relying on three structures with deep experience, it will participate in four classes.
After its debut in 2022, Fantic returns to line up in grand style at the starting gate of the MXGP World Championship. In fact, for 2024, Fantic will participate in the premier class of motocross by entrusting the Fantic Factory Racing MXGP team to the experience of Louis Vosters' Dutch structure, a protagonist in the world motocross championship in recent years. The riders who will bring the Fantic XXF 450 to the race, under the guidance of team manager Vitaliy Tonkov, will be the outstanding Glenn Coldenhoff and the rookie Roan Van de Moosdjik.
Fantic will also be present in the MX2 World Championship and the EMX250 European Championship with the Fantic Factory Racing MX2 team, with Matteo Migliori's SM Action structure from Modena, together with team manager Emanuele Giovannelli. The Fantic bearers will be the Dutch Kay Karssemakers, the EMX250 2023 vice Champion who deservedly rises in the World Championship, and the Spaniard David Braceras. The French Alexis Fueri is confirmed in the EMX250.
The Fantic Factory Racing EMX125 team will be present in the European 125 championship with Daniele Marchese's SDM team, which will field the Italian Simone Mancini, the Hungarian Noel Zanocz, and the Belgian Douwe Van Mechgelen.
FANTIC FACTORY ENDURO TEAMS
On the strength of the five titles won this year in the Enduro World Championship, Fantic is also expected to be a protagonist in the coming season, again with two teams.
Simone Albergoni will continue to lead the Fantic Factory Enduro team, which has become Fantic's 'school of champions', thanks to the 18 titles won in the last three years. Together with him, the confirmed riders who have dominated in their respective categories will leap: Junior Enduro World Champion Jed Etchells, Junior 2 champion Albin Norrbin, who will debut in EnduroGP, the queen class, and Youth class champion Kevin Cristino. The dominator of the 2023 season will move up a category and compete in the next championship on a bigger bike.
Joining the three top riders will be new signing Axel Semb, another season star who just ended in the Junior class.
Antonio Specia's Fantic Factory Junior team has successfully demonstrated its skills and outstanding performance, earning well-deserved recognition this year. The Veneto-based outfit will jump from the European to the World Championship, with four-time world champion Jane Daniels flanked by youngsters Valentino Corsi and Pietro Scardina.
