“I am really happy to continue my relationship with the Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing,” Lucas said. “Our first year together was very successful – we have a base to build on in 2024 and that is going to be very important. Thanks to everyone for their support. I cannot wait for the new season to begin on March 10.”

Joining Lucas in the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship team is Kay de Wolf. The team will also feature Mattia Guadagnini in the MXGP division, setting the stage for an exciting season starting on March 10.

Meanwhile, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing has inked a multi-year extension with Sacha Coenen, the talented 17-year-old. Sacha, entering his second term in the FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship is looking to build on his debut season’s learnings. Despite facing challenges and injuries, he garnered ten top-ten moto results, finishing 6th overall at the Swedish Grand Prix in 2023.

Under the guidance of former world champion Joel Smets and Team Co-Ordinator Harry Norton, Coenen will continue his professional development within the factory crew.

“I’m really looking forward to next year already as well as the future seasons,” Sacha said. “This year was a big learning experience for me but great for building a relationship with the team and the guys. It was difficult at times and I couldn’t always deliver the results I wanted but we had some good races, I tried hard and had some nice starts as well. I want to have a good winter, working more with my Dad and brother, and look for more consistency next season. Then we’ll see what we can do on the track.”

The stacked Red Bull KTM roster for 2024 includes MX2 World Champion Andrea Adamo, 4th-placed finisher Liam Everts, and Jeffrey Herlings, competing in the MXGP category.

The Grand Prix of Argentina at Neuquen on March 10 marks the beginning of the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship.
