The domestic factory team and factory supported riders of the most traditional brand in dirt bike racing ‰ÛÒ Husqvarna ‰ÛÒ are eagerly facing their sternest test so far; the first round of the Monster Energy MX nationals at Broadford, Victoria.
The Craig Anderson-managed Husqvarna Motocross Racing Team is the newest factory team on the block, and despite minimal preparation time, utilises some of the most competitive racing platforms, and exciting up-and-comers, in the sport today.
Anderson, one of the most decorated combatants in Australian motocross history, has worked feverishly to ensure that, his team, his bikes, and his young charges will be ready to fight on Sunday, and Anderson is confident that all three riders have the potential to make their mark.
"Well, after a late start, it's all coming together for us now." Anderson stated. "The boys are happy with their bikes and real focused. We've been working closely with Ross McWatters at MCD for the last few days chasing the perfect suspension and engine setting for Brock, and we‰Ûªve found a setting he‰Ûªs real comfortable with.
"Nick was always happy with his and Egan‰Ûªs suspension is dialled so we‰Ûªre set," he added.
"For Egan it‰Ûªs his first big race as a pro and I'm confident in him to do really well, if he doesn't over think stuff. Nick's a hard-working country boy and he‰Ûªs been getting good starts and solid results lately. Brock's been training a lot and should go well, so we'll just focus on keeping it simple and looking after all the little one percenters that bring results.‰Û
