The young rider from the Isle of Man completes the list of reinforcements for the Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team for the next season. McCanney will race in the SuperEnduro World Championship and EnduroGP as official Gas Gas rider.
Danny McCanney joins forces with the Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team. The British rider has signed for two years with the official Salt factory team headed by Gio Sala, Team Manager of the renewed squad.
The rider from the Isle of Man returns to the team with which he had his first international races. And he is back to ride on the new Gas Gas EnduroGP bike that he will race with in the SuperEnduro World Cup beginning on December 9th this year in Krakow (Poland), and also in the next EnduroGP World Championship, a competition that will start in Finland on March 17th, 2018
The signing of McCanney is in addition to the French rider Christophe Nambotin so they can both race in Gas Gas Enduro Factory Team colours at the maximum level of international competition. Barely 26 years old, the young rider from the Isle of Man already holds two world titles in his sporting career. McCanney was proclaimed SuperEnduro Junior World Champion with Gas Gas in 2013 and, a season later, he also won the Enduro Junior World Championship crown.
