Husqvarna Bolsters Factory Supported Line Up With Craig Anderson Racing Duo

Posted:

Husqvarna Australia has chosen to invest further in the future of Australian motocross by adding two more riders to its factory backing program for this year‰Ûªs Australian MX Nationals championship, which kicks off this weekend at Horsham in Victoria.

Current factory supported Husqvarna riders Jesse Dobson, Luke Arbon and Nathan Crawford will be joined by the Craig Anderson-managed pairing of Aaron Tanti and Connor Tierney, to give the pioneers of motocross an exciting and youthful five-pronged assault.

Husqvarna finished first and second in last year‰Ûªs MXD championship chase, with Egan Mastin winning the title ahead of Crawford. This year, West Australian Connor Tierney will step up into the category aboard a Husqvarna TC 250.

Tierney is young at 16, but with 10 WA championships behind him is no stranger to high level competition, and Anderson is keen to have a shot at replicating last year‰Ûªs success in developing junior champions into senior ones.

‰ÛÏIt's awesome, I couldn't hope for a better team." Tierney said. "Ando‰Ûªs a really good mentor and he‰Ûªs been helping heaps.

"I'm really happy with the setup of the bike, which is awesome. I‰Ûªm not in perfect shape physically, but this will just be a starting point and somewhere to work from for the next few rounds. I‰Ûªm super excited about my first year in seniors, to see how I go against all the big boys. That's what you look at going all the way through juniors, racing against the older guys.

"I‰Ûªm riding the 250 2-stroke this year. I rode it a little bit as a practice bike last year and really liked it. They look pretty sick, and they handle real good and have strong power. As an all round bike I love them.‰Û
