Craig Anderson Racing Leads Husqvarna’s Charge Into Broadford
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

Brock Winston has made the move up to the MX1 class for 2014
Brock Winston who had a successful 2013 Motocross Championship finishing third in the MX2 class is ready to hit the race track on Sunday.

‰ÛÏI'm looking alright, it's been a rushed setup as everyone knows but we've got a start point for this weekend." Winston explained. "Hopefully I can get some good points and stay in it for 10 rounds. I went pretty good at Broadford last year but it's always a different track and it can be real difficult to ride, so we‰Ûªll just go as hard as we can and see what the result is.

"Working with Craig has been good, he's pretty determined and we‰Ûªre both going in the same direction. He does whatever he can for me and we‰Ûªre doing whatever we need to win, so we get on sweet.‰Û

Egan Mastin will look after the official factory teams MXD campaign as he steps up to senior racing for the 2014 season.

‰ÛÏI've been riding at our track with Brock and that's been great. He's pretty motivated, so it's awesome to train with someone who's up there and it's definitely been helping me - I've had to be really consistent throughout a moto to try to hang on to him." Mastin said.

"I‰Ûªve never been to Broadford before but I can‰Ûªt wait to step up and begin in seniors. Hopefully I'll be in the title hunt, that's what I'm aiming for and for top three most rounds. My bike is awesome, it's pretty much just got a pipe on it and my suspension pretty sorted.‰Û
