2016 was a good year for Josh Gotts on his TM UK machine, with more support in 2017 he's hoping for more. 

The 23 year old from the West Country has been working hard and etching out a career in Enduro and it's hardly surprising as Josh has been riding bikes for as long as he can remember. 

"I've ridden bikes pretty much since I could walk but only raced now for 5-6 years, I started off doing my first British championship way back in the clubman ranks, year after year worked my way up to the championship class in 2015 where I finished 9th overall in the championship and 5th in the junior E2 championship. In 2015 I also represented team GB at the ISDE in Slovakia, it was an awesome experience and a pleasure to represent my country in my sport. But unfortunately mechanical problems on day three bought the event to a stop for me.

This past year had been a pretty busy schedule for me, starting off with the British championship in April then heading to Morocco for the Enduro GP opener, then a further 6 stops throughout the year. Being my first full season it was a big eye opener but gave me a lot of confidence and experience that I've needed. I ended up 14th overall in the junior rankings, so I was fairly happy with that considering it was my first year in the sharp end of the Endure GP's. 
 

With us supporting Josh it seems only fair that we ask him what he thinks of our exhaust systems. "I've been riding TMs now pretty much all of my biking life and as you boys know they come stock with HGS pipes. They're not bad pipes until they get a bashing, and espcecially with the nature of enduros they do not last too long and being a mechanical engineer myself I have way too many beyond repair! But since using the DEP system it's been great. Believe it or not I’m on the same exhaust I started with over 8 weeks, which is pretty much a miracle for me! But on a serious note I’m really impressed with the full system and the power it produces, it gives more bottom end to the bike making it more rideable in the tight trees and still having that punch in the mid with the legs on the straights too! I know you guys hook me up but regardless, having now used the pipes I would recommend them to any enduro rider."
