Andrew Short Set To Continue Rally Career with Rockstar Husqvarna

Posted:

One of the most acclaimed US motocross and supercross riders in recent history, Andrew Short made the switch to rally towards the end of 2017
Husqvarna Motorcycles have announced that Andrew Short has signed a one-year extension to his current contract with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, which will see the American continue to race cross-country rally competitions through to the end of the 2020 season.

One of the most acclaimed US motocross and supercross riders in recent history, Andrew Short made the switch to rally towards the end of 2017. In January 2018 the American rider made his Dakar Rally debut where, despite breaking his ankle in the closing stages, he completed the gruelling race in a creditable 17th place.

Continuing to work on both his navigation and speed, Short competed in the 2018 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship where he produced a number of top-10 finishes. Going into his second Dakar at the beginning of 2019, it was clear Andrew had made huge advances and ultimately placed fifth overall at the end of the 10-day event.
For 2020, he is expected to continue his strong run of form and produce top results in both the Dakar Rally and at the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.
The 36-year-old has enjoyed continued success during this year‰Ûªs world championship including fifth in the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge followed by an excellent runner-up finish in the recent Silk Way Rally.

Andrew has proven himself to be a great asset to Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing in terms of his professionalism and willingness to learn. For 2020, he is expected to continue his strong run of form and produce top results in both the Dakar Rally and at the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm excited to be with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team for another year." Short enthused. "It takes time to get to the point where you understand rally and can ride competitively, but I believe I am at that stage now.

"There is always more to learn, but with the Dakar moving to Saudi Arabia it will be a new experience for everyone and I‰Ûªm hoping that will be in my favour and help me continue to progress. I‰Ûªm really happy to be part of the team and I think it gives me the very best opportunity.

"To be successful in rally, you need the very best crew behind you, and I have exactly that right now. I‰Ûªm looking forward to what 2020 brings.‰Û
