Gert is fighting for the title this season with KTM rider Tom Vial, losing just four points to the French athlete seven stages before the end of the season. They are both more than 100 points ahead of third-place finisher Simon Langenfelder from GasGas.
Vial is the only KTM factory driver in the MX2 class this year, but he is scheduled to move to the MXGP category next year, which has not yet been officially confirmed. Gertz, meanwhile, has already announced that he will spend another season in the MX2 class, and now he has two great options.
Hans Corvers, owner of the Yamaha plant’s MX2 team, told MXMag in an interview that Gertz is currently on offer from both Yamaha and KTM for next year, and the athlete is currently considering which one to accept.
“He will start in the MX2 class anyway, it has already been decided, but it has not yet been decided whether he will do it with us or the orange team,” Corvers said. “I think he’s thinking about the seasons that will follow next year, because he’s going to sign a two-year contract for one season in the MX2 class and one season in the MXGP.”
Gerts is expected to make a decision in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, his main competitor, Vial, will probably start in the MXGP class next year, although there are rumors that he will continue his career in America.
