The motorcycle brake components brand has closed new and significant sports agreements with globally prestigious teams for the 2020 season, including SH Honda in MXGP, Boé Skull Rider in Moto3 and MV Agusta in Supersport 600.
GALFER continues to make a name for itself in the world of motorcycle competition and will have an even greater presence in some of the most important disciplines worldwide for 2020.
In off-road competition, the French SH Honda Team (best private team in 2019) will be supported by GALFER brake components on their competition motorcycles for the 2020 Motocross World Championship. More specifically, they will be using the new oversized ø280mm RWSX brake discs in combination with the compound G1396R racing disc pads. The riders for the team will be Jeremy Van Horebeek from Belgium and Valentin Guillod from Switzerland, two men with enormous experience in the world of MXGP. Jeremy Van Horebeek was MXGP world runner-up in 2014 and achieved two podium finishes in 2019. Valentin Guillod was European champion in 2013. In the MX2 category, the French rider Maxime Renaux (SM Action Yamaha) will be in contention for the title and also uses GALFER products. The new team of Fantic Motor will fight for the European Motocross Championship with Andrea Bonacorsi and Andrea Rossi.
Besides Motocross, the Beta team in EnduroGP will continue to use GALFER brake products with the two British world champions, Steve Holcombe (5-times champion) and Brad Freeman (champion in 2019). Also the Italian team TM Racing will continue with the support of the Spanish brake brand.
In TrialGP, the Montesa-Honda team will also maintain their trust in GALFER for 2020 with the 26-times world champion Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami. TRS, Vertigo, Beta and Sherco will also use their brake products in the TrialGP competition.
GALFER is also increasing its presence in the speed racing categories. In MotoGP, the Boé Skull Rider Moto3 team will join the GALFER family with Italian riders Ricardo Rossi and Davide Pizzoli. In addition, the new Racing JCW1 brake discs – recently developed by the engineers in the GALFER R&D Department – will be fitted to another 11 MotoGP motorcycles: Leopard, Gresini, Estrella Galicia, SIC58 and Reale-Avintia in Moto3 and Stop & Go in Moto2.
For the Superbike World Championship (WSBK), the Italian team MV Agusta will use GALFER brake discs and pads in the Supersport 600 category thanks to the brilliant new signing of the current world champion, Randy Krummenacher. Raffaele de Rosa and Federico Fulgini will compete alongside him. In the same category, GALFER will continue to partner with the Evan Bros team and its rider Andrea Locatelli.
