Jason Anderson gives Husqvarna a win in their spiritual homeland

Posted:

Jason Anderson, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs recent signing made a winning debut ride on the Husqvarna FC 450 on Saturday at the 24MX Supercross in Stockholm.

His victory in the Swedish capital was highly symbolic as it also represented the brand‰Ûªs successful return to its spiritual homeland.

Even in early free practice Anderson said he liked the track and had a good feeling on his new factory bike. He then had a solid ride in the last of three pro-class heats, scrambling back to second after a crash in Lap 4. The US rider then advanced to the second semi and was able to convert his holeshot into a race win after grabbing the lead over Phil Nicoletti in lap four.

Anderson was then set to take on the competition in the final and quickly set the stage for success with another holeshot. He went on to accumulate an impressive lead and sealed the victory in front of 14,000 fans in Stockholm‰Ûªs Tele2 Arena.

It was an important occasion for Husqvarna as well as being the debut ride for Anderson, who also took time to meet company officials in Sweden and visit the Husqvarna museum.

‰ÛÏThat was pretty cool,‰Û
