Cab Screens motocross team announced their plans for 2017 last night, continuing their partnership with Husqvarna Motorcycles and Husky Sport.
Cab Screens have again secured Chinese construction firm, LiuGong, as their joint title sponsor so they will continue with the team name Cab Screens / LiuGong / Husqvarna into 2017. “It’s great to continue our relationship with Husqvarna Motorcycles and all the team backers that continue to support us and move forward with us,” said team manager Lee Webber.
The team has a strong commitment to nurture and support young talent on the national stage and they will continue that ethos in 2017 with Dan Thornhill and James Harrison in the Pro MX1 classes alongside amateur rider Josh Coleman in MX2. “I am also hoping that we can add a youth rider to our amateur team to join Josh Coleman for 2017,” said Webber. “In Dan and James, who are both only 21, I believe we have the two youngest and most exciting riders in the MX1 class. I’m looking forward to seeing how they can improve on their 2016 results. Next year is already shaping up to be a fantastic one.”
The team are committed to the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship and Michelin MX Nationals but also intend to compete in a couple of Grands Prix with Thornhill and Harrison.
A host of other sponsors are already secured for 2017 with a few more to be finalised, but currently Husky Sport, Michelin Motorcycle, Akorn Construction, LRS Suspension, LMC Plant and Site Services, Structural Steel Craft, Pro-Green, Bell Helmets, Acerbis, Race FX, Decade Europe, 100%, Matrix, Rynopower, Amped, HGS Exhausts, Putoline Oils, CFX Seat Covers, Malcom Rathmell Sport, Talon Engineering, Hardcore Racing, Samco, WP and Pro-Bolt will be supporting Cab Screens in 2017.

Their ethos and ambitions match ours and we’re proud to support this young team and see their riders progress in 2017.”
Mike Carter for Husky Sport said: “I’ve known Lee and the team for some time and have really enjoyed working with them this year. They are a local team who support top local riders and that is something we’ve always done at Husky Sport, so it’s a pleasure to work with them next year.”
