Danny McCanney – SuperEnduro, KTM & 2014…

Danny McCanney – SuperEnduro, KTM & 2014…

Now parted from Gas Gas Danny McCanney is focusing in on the opening round of the SuperEnduro World Championship and busy making plans for 2014…

“Right now I can confirm that I will be racing at the first round of the SuperEnduro World Championship in Liverpool. And that I’ll be on a Fowlers Motorcycles backed KTM. It’s an event I wasn’t going to miss, so having the guys at Fowlers step in to help me out with a KTM 250f is great. Obviously, having spent so long on a two-stroke the 250f will be something completely new for me, but so far things are going well. I’ve ridden it on a couple of Endurocross tracks and it feels good. It’s light, easy to throw about and got plenty of power, which is exactly what I need for the big boys class.

“I’ve had a couple of incredible years with Gas Gas. I started enduro on a Gas Gas, secured my first factory contract with Gas Gas, and most importantly won my first world championship with them. It’s been a whirlwind couple of years and I’m grateful to them for all the support they’ve given me, and pleased with what we achieved together. I owe them, and John Shirt at Gas Gas UK, a lot of thanks.

“But I suppose like any rider there comes a time in your career when you feel like it is time to move on. Whether it’s for better or worse – and I’m hoping it’s for the better – that time is now. For a while I’ve felt like I needed to change something about my program. My results in the EWC have been good but not quite to the level that I know I can achieve. I believe that I can win the junior world title and this change – whatever it might bring – is the added motivation I need to help me do it.

“As yet my future is still unknown. Nothing concrete is in place. What bike I will ride and who for in 2014 is something I’m working hard on. It’s not an easy time to be a professional rider. Rides are scarce and there’s a lot people looking for support. But I’m confident that things will work out and I can soon begin to focus on the new season ahead.

“Moving into the Prestige class for SuperEnduro is a little nerve wrecking but I’m looking forward to the challenge. It’s going to be tough – at least five guys can win. My aim is to push for a top five result – hopefully I can hit that target, as I need good result now more than ever…”
