Aussie Josh Strang Remanis With U.S Husqvarna Off-Road Team In 2016
As the 2016 off-road season approaches, Husqvarna Motorcycles have announced the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Off-road Team including the return of Australian Josh Strang to a very strong line up.

Along with Strang Andrew Delong, Jacob Argubright, Mike Brown, and newest team member Colton Haaker will take on racing duties for the iconic brand with Tim Weigand heading up the team as the team manager.

Strang will be riding his second season with Husqvarna aboard the all new 2016 FC 450 in both the GNCC and AMA National Enduro Series. Strang finished out the 2015 GNCC Series with an overall third place finish and can't wait to the the new season of racing started.

"I am amped to race for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna again." Strang enthused. "I feel like the new FC 450 is just what I need to get up on the top of the box!"

Andrew Delong showed great perseverance and skill during the start of the GNCC and National Enduro series. However, due to a racing sustained injury he was not able to finish the season. He will be returning to both the GNCC and National Enduro series fully recovered riding the FC 350.

Continuing his desert ventures in the AMA National Hare and Hound and AMA National Western Hare Scramble is Jacob Argubright. Throughout the 2015 season, Jacob showed a great drive and during Round 8 of NHHA he became the first rider to podium in both the AMA West Hare Scramble and AMA National Hare and Hound on the same weekend.

2015 X-Games Endurocross Gold Medalist and Team U.S. ISDE Trophy Team member Mike Brown carries forward with the 2016 Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team. Brown finished the 2015 Endurocross season in a 3rd place overall and will continue to push for wins in 2016 while riding the all-new FC 250.

The teams newest member Haaker had a year full of success and opportunity. He started his year off winning King of the Moto's, a true test of agility and stamina. His drive to be a champion didn't stop there. He placed 1st in three Endurocross races and had a podium spot in five of the remaining races.
