World Enduro Super Series (WESS) runner-up Alfredo Gomez has re-signed with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing in a multi-year deal that will see him through the 2021 season.

The Spaniard was a regular front-runner in all eight rounds of the 2019 WESS championship, finishing just shy of the crown behind Manuel Lettenbichler (KTM).

“I’m really happy to continue with Husqvarna Motorcycles for another two years,” said Gomez. “We’ve grown together a lot during the last few years and I have a really strong and enjoyable relationship with everyone in the team – in a way it has become like an extended part of my family.

“I’m really proud of what we achieved during 2019 by finishing second overall in the WESS enduro world championship and always fighting for the victory. When I seriously injured my leg, they stood by me. There was never any pressure to return to the bike early, they just wanted me to get better.

“I feel like that was when our bond became even tighter than it already was. I’m looking forward to what lies ahead during these next two years and in particular 2020. We’ve shown ourselves as title contenders with the TE 300i and for certain our goal is to become world champions together.”

The opening round of the 2020 WESS season is scheduled for 8-10 May for the Extreme XL Lagares in Portugal.
