ask to expect a top result from Tom as Erzberg is notoriously difficult , but the way Tom approached and prepared for the event , and the way he rode during the race , he really impressed us . It ’ s an amazing story and one that GASGAS is incredibly proud of . Congratulations , Tom !”
Tom Minta : “ I still can ’ t believe how amazing Erzberg was ! Getting the chance to compete in such an amazing event , and as part of GASGAS Factory Racing , was an amazing experience and something I ’ ll never forget . I didn ’ t quite know what to expect going into the race , but my personal goal was to reach
Carl ’ s Dinner and that ’ s exactly what I did ! In the lead up I put so many hours in practising , I felt really good on the bike and ready for the challenge . The Iron Giant is so big . Photos and videos don ’ t do the size of the place justice . It ’ s massive ! Without a doubt my trial background definitely helped me in all the technical sections and without that there ’ s no way I ’ d have gotten as far as I did . The whole experience was off the scale , the atmosphere was incredible , and I can ’ t wait for 2023 where my goal is to reach the finish line .”
