Just like the Red Bull KTM USA Factory Team, Husqvarna Motorsports has announced their intention to compete in the final round of the 2015 MXGP World Championship with riders from both of its factory teams.
The US Factory Team, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing will join Red Bull Iceone Husqvarna Factory Racing and Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing at the classic Glen Helen venue in California for what promises to be an outstanding finish to the 2015 season.
The race weekend for the final round of the World Championship will be September 29-30 at Glen Helen, one week before the annual Motocross of Nations in France.
Robert Jonas, Head of Husqvarna Motorsports commented: “We believe that having our three factory teams at Glen Helen will be a real highlight and a true celebration of our sport. Giving our US riders the possibility to race in the last round of the 2015 World Championship is an exciting opportunity, particularly for the fans, but also for the teams, to see the world’s best compete together.”
Jonas said creating the conditions to see the world’s great riders in action on a track that is universally popular on both sides of the Atlantic was a definite win-win situation for the sport. “Our MXGP riders welcome the chance to test themselves against the best US riders and Glen Helen is an ideal venue.
“This will be a very good opportunity to finish the traditional season on a high note. Hopefully we will see many of the best US riders and teams take up the invitation and join us in what will be a very memorable race weekend.”
