Josep Garcia – Ready to race for 2024 EnduroGP victory! | KTM

After a busy pre-season of training, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Josep Garcia is ready to race the seven-round 2024 FIM EnduroGP World Championship, beginning with the GP of Portugal from 5-7 April.

Choosing to remain on his KTM 250 EXC-F after last year’s success, Garcia has shown incredible pace and form on the machine already in testing and training ahead of the EnduroGP season start. The 27-year-old dominated the first race of his 2024 calendar, round one of the Spanish Enduro Championship, to claim victories in both the overall ‘scratch’ ranking and the E1 class.

Following his 2023 victory in the Enduro1 category, Josep is determined to retain his title and claim the hotly contested EnduroGP world championship crown. The Spaniard’s 2023 season wasn’t all smooth sailing however, as Josep suffered a broken collarbone and dislocated elbow after a crash at the GP of Sweden. Thanks to his strong results from the opening rounds, combined with an epic comeback after injury, Garcia managed to secure the E1 title.

Round one of the 2024 FIM EnduroGP World Championship gets underway from April 5-7 with the first of a Portuguese double-header, beginning in Fafe, northern Portugal. In addition to making stops in fan-favorite locations such as France, Italy, and Slovakia, the seven-round championship will also visit Wales and Romania, two countries that have not hosted EnduroGP action in many years.

Josep Garcia: “I’m really looking forward to getting the 2024 EnduroGP season underway! I’ve worked really hard over the pre-season this year and now, I can’t wait for the start of the championship. Last year, we switched from the 350 to the new 250, which was quite a big change, but I think it was a good choice because it’s so powerful and I have a lot of fun riding it. We’ll continue with the bike this season and so the goals remain the same – top both the E1 and EnduroGP classes. So far, 2024 has started well for me. I won the first round of the Spanish championship and felt really good on the bike – the team have done a great job of getting it set up. I’m feeling good and I’m super excited to get the season underway in Portugal.”
