National E1 Champ Jared Thomas
You’ve got a bunch of heavy hitters on GasGas motorcycles this season…
Jared Thomas, the 2011 E1 National Champion, is also on a GasGas. He is riding an EC250 Six Days model in the E2 class through A&E, with support from GasGas Pacific.

Stephen Foord will also be on a 300 for A&E Racing and GasGas Pacific. He won the World Enduro Canada National Trials Championship in 2009, plus he won the expert title in both the Alberta and the Western Canada Hare Scrambles Championships that year.

Stephen is quite an accomplished trials rider and made the cut at Xtinction last year! He rides a Sherco in trials, but this will be an exciting year since he and quite a few other Alberta guys are racing enduro and cross-country for GasGas! Matt Coonfer will also be on a GasGas 250 through A&E and GasGas.
Matt Coonfer took third overall in the C class in the CEC series in 2010
