Pauls moved to the 450 class in 2019to finish an impressive sixth place in the final 2019 450 Grand Prix standings. Unfortunately, in 2020 Jonas suffered a bad crash that ended his season early. Almost completely rehabilitated , Pauls is ready to bang bars when the gate drops for the start of the 2021 season.
Pauls Jonass said, “I’m really excited for my future with GasGas. I have to thank the Standing Construct team for believing in me while I have been injured, but I will be back to 100%. I’m looking forward to a great future together with GASGAS and I look forward to achieving some great results when the 2021 season starts.”

Brian Bogers said: “It’s a great feeling to be on the Standing Construct GasGas team for 2021. I’m really looking forward to next season as I know the team is very professional and the bike is great. They have had impressive results over recent years, so it gives me a lot of confidence. It’s an exciting opportunity.
