Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing has unveiled its ambitious move for the 2024 FIM Motocross World Championship by signing Italian sensation Mattia Guadagnini.
This strategic signing underscores the team’s determination to not only field a championship-contending MX2 Team but also to venture into the fiercely competitive MXGP class in the upcoming season.
At only 23, Guadagnini’s track record is impressive, having claimed the coveted red plate in the MX2 division, secured Grand Prix victories, and even graced the MXGP podium. His potential hasn’t escaped the keen eye of the Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing team, and they’re committed to working closely with him to elevate his performance to new heights.
With this latest addition, Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing solidifies its roster, with Mattia Guadagnini as their sole representative in the MXGP class, while Kay de Wolf and Lucas Coenen aim to seize the MX2 title.
Expressing his enthusiasm for the new chapter, Guadagnini stated, “I am really excited about making a step forward in my career with Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing – the commitment from everyone on the team has given me a massive boost. I am just as eager to make the move to Belgium; I feel that is necessary to battle for consistent podiums in the MXGP class.”
Rasmus Jorgensen, Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager, added, “It is very exciting to add Mattia to the team. It is often overlooked just how young he is and what he has achieved in his short professional career thus far – it will be fun to nurture that talent. We have three of the brightest stars in Europe under our tent. 2024 cannot come soon enough.”
Robert Jonas, Vice President of Off-Road Racing, expressed his support, saying, “It’s brilliant to support Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing as they move into the MXGP division with Mattia Guadagnini. Guadagnini has shown superb potential in recent years: I am certain that Rasmus Jorgensen, along with the rest of the team, will extract the most from him and put the FC 450 onto the podium soon enough.”
