Knowing that there ’ s a serious crossover of skills between trial and hard enduro , GASGAS dreamed up the ultimate challenge to see just how close the two disciplines actually are . The plan ? Take the top privateer finisher at the Scottish Six Days Trial – a brutally tough event in its own right – and give that rider the full GASGAS Factory Racing treatment in order to take on the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo !
