Jarrod Bewley and Geoff Braico to Give Husaberg a 2014 Swan Song
Aussie enduro aces and passionate ‰Û÷Berg pilots Jarrod Bewley and Geoff Braico have been chosen to fly the Husaberg flag in what is to be the marque‰Ûªs final year as a distributor-backed entity in Australian off-road racing.

For the Husaberg team, that makes 2014 a historic task - the final lap of an exciting era in Aussie off-road racing, with two riders who would very much like to make that last lap a victory lap.

Bewley, who this year stacked AORC class wins onto E3 class wins at both Finke and Hattah to establish himself as one of the premier Aussie off-roaders of 2013, will again saddle up on the FE501 while Geoff Braico takes aim at an E2 berth on the nimble FE350.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªll be continuing from what I did this year, riding the FE501 in the AORC, at the 4-day and at Hattah with all the same sponsors from this year." Bewley explained. "I can't wait put in another big effort next year and see how I end up.

"I‰Ûªm working hard to get back to where I know I can run and it‰Ûªs slowly coming together for me. I had good form in the last few races and was able to show how good the ‰Û÷Bergs are, just by taking it a race at a time and enjoying my racing.

"The 501 is an awesome bike to ride - I rode one in Finke, Hattah and the last 6 AORC races I think and I‰Ûªve only just got my new 2014. There are a few little changes but nothing major. I‰Ûªm looking forward to working with Geoff again, and bouncing a few setup ideas back and forth under the Husaberg awning at races.

"I‰Ûªve raced against GB since juniors and we‰Ûªve been good mates for the last 5 years. We have fun together, and we both love trying our best to get the Bergs up there," he concluded.

Geoff Braico feels fortunate to score the Husaberg ride as the brand makes it's exit from the production line in 2014.

‰ÛÏTimes are tough so I feel fortunate to score this ride with Husaberg and be able to see the final year out with the brand, it‰Ûªs an exciting thing and I‰Ûªd dearly love to put it on the box in the last year." Braico stated.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm testing the FE350 at the moment and will probably ride that for the season. I‰Ûªve ridden E3 for the last 5 years, and it will be my first time in E2 so I‰Ûªm pretty excited by the challenge, but with Pricey and Milner there it won‰Ûªt be an easy year!

‰ÛÏI really like the lightness of the 350 and it stops a lot quicker than the 501 did, but I want to get fitter so I can use a more aggressive style on it and that will be a focus over the next couple of months. With the big bikes it‰Ûªs all about being smooth and flowy.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve also got a bunch of new sponsors getting on board so I can‰Ûªt wait to get out there, get the results and haveanother clean year.. Braico added.
