Husqvarna Backs Up And Coming Townsville Dirt Track Star

Posted:

He is very young, very tiny and very fast, and now Husqvarna Australia has offered talented dirt track up and comer Billy Van Eerde a hand at the right time, in the form of a brand-new Husqvarna TC 125 with which to race the Australian Dirt Track Titles at Kempsey in a little over a fortnight.

The Casey Stoner cup winner has already taken two Queensland championships this year aboard a Husqvarna TC85, but now has committed fully to senior machinery and will race his new TC 125 alongside the Husqvarna FC 250 four-stroke he began racing at Easter.

Hailing from Townsville, Queensland, 13-year-old Van Eerde moved to moved to Singleton, NSW to be in the thick of the dirt track action, and attracted the support of local Husqvarna dealer Chris Watson Motorcycles.

‰ÛÏI haven't ridden the new 125 yet but I've sat on it in the van and it looks good and feels good!" Ven Eerde said. "I‰Ûªm looking forward to it, it will be really fun riding it and the 250 four-stroke.

"I'll try and get some podiums, maybe even firsts. I‰Ûªll try my best.

"The Elite Performance Academy last weekend will also help, it was very interesting and a lot of fun. I learned a lot of new things about nutrition and ways to get fit and also some psychological tips.‰Û
