With Benjamin Herrera, the Beta Factory Enduro Team completes its 2019 line-up
13/02/2019, Rignano sull'Arno - Beta has officially signed up Benjamin Herrera to complete the Beta Factory Enduro Team line-up.
The 24-year-old Chilean – in the picture with Team Manager Fabrizio Dini, next to a Beta production-model – will indeed support EnduroGP World Champion Steve Holcombe.
Herrera will be busy throughout the whole World Enduro Championship and in some stages of the Assoluti d’Italia on the Beta RR 350 4T.
This is an important promotion that sees the young Chilean move from the Beta Importer Team in his country to being the official rider for the 2019 season.
"I am very pleased I signed this new contract – said Benjamin Herrera – it’s a dream come true. I've always wanted to become an official rider and now it's amazing. The aim is to achieve good results both in the World Enduro Championship and in the Assoluti d’Italia in the E2 class. I’m well aware of the value of the Beta brand, since last year I raced with this bike, even if not as an official rider, and I really like the RR.”
We will see our riders on their bikes very soon: the Assoluti d’Italia will start on 2 March at Gioia dei Marsi, while the first stage of the Enduro World Championship is scheduled for 22 March at Dahlen in Germany.
