Good to see he got a ride for 2019.

GS is so under-rated as a rider, I can't understand why he can't put some sort of multi year deal together. Probably one the best things for Suzuki in offroad but after one year thats it. Consider he also is/was a single dad with now a newborn he relates to most people out there...

Hatch is my boss. It’s cool he’s helping Gary out. It is sort of nuts he doesn’t have more support.

Just to clarify what was said. He has a daughter who is around 7, was a single Dad. He and his finance (I don’t think married yet?) just had a baby.

I would say Gary is easily the #2 off-road rider on the west coast behind Taylor Robert. Not to mention a hard worker and used to be a mechanic for Ricky Dedrich. If I had a off-road team he’s the first guy I would hire.

Does anyone know what series he'll be racing in '19?

Probably the same as last year. Hare and hound and WORCS, possibly Big6.

FWIW, I don't think he raced any National Hare & Hounds last year: http://www.moto-tally.com/nhha/standings.aspx?EY=2018&SC=O1

Here's the top 5 overall for the 2018 WORCS pro class.
The Big 6 WCGP title will be decided this weekend.

He didn't race NHHA in 18...though I'd like to see him come back and race them. I know KTM has an interest in them where Suzuki doesn't.

Ah man...that would be a huge blow to that series. (I don’t think husky was racing it this year...after racing it 2017 with Agubright).

I thought I saw thayn Brabec will be racing the full series in 2019-I assume with JCR Honda?
