The young German rider is to stay in the Gas Gas team. Kadlec will be competing in the 2017 World Trial Championship in the World Pro category on an official Gas Gas TXT300 Racing bike. He will also be riding this bike in the fight to keep the German title for the fourth consecutive year in this speciality.
The young Bavarian trial whiz-kid and Gas Gas are renewing their successful relationship which has resulted in their winning the last three German trial championships. Franzi Kadlec -who after winning the 2014 European Trial Championship made the jump to the top class: TrialGP– will once again be battling to find a place in the FIM Word Championship X-Trial and WTC ‘top five’.
Undisputed master of German trial in the last three seasons, Kadlec’s eleventh places in 2015 and 2016 in TrialGP, is just confirmation of the ever upward trend for the results of this young rider, only 19 years old, from Bad Tölz, in the World Trial Championship.
Kadlec, who will be riding a Gas Gas TXT 300 Racing bike for the official Gas Gas Factory FG Trial Team, will combine his participation in the World Trial Championship (indoor & outdoor) with the German Trial Championship where he will be competing to reclaim the title.
