Roan Van De Moosdijk Joins Kay de Wolf At Rockstar Energy Husqvarna

Posted:

Husqvarna Motorcycles has signed former EMX250 champion Roan Van De Moosdijk to replace Jed Beaton, who has aged out, for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

In joining the Nestaan MX2 run Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team, Van De Moosdijk will compete in the MX2 World Championship alongside fellow Dutchman Kay de Wolf. Forming a highly competitive line-up.

Just one year after placing third in his debut season in the hotly contested EMX250 series in 2018, Roan claimed the title in 2019 after a season-long battle for the championship. Stepping up to the MX2 World Championship for 2020, the now 21-year-old immediately impressed with three overall podium results from the first five rounds. Two further top-three finishes followed later in the year, with the Dutchman securing a maiden race victory and claiming second overall at the MXGP of Lommel. Roan would ultimately place seventh in the final standings.

Bringing everything he learned in his rookie MX2 season into 2021, Roan enjoyed another promising campaign start, claiming three third-place moto finishes to lie fifth in the series standings after the first four rounds. Frustratingly, a broken scaphoid sustained following a crash at the MXGP of Czech Republic prevented him from delivering what was set to be his breakout season in the MX2 World Championship.

“I’m so pleased to be joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 team, it’s really a very special moment in my career,” Van De Moosdijk enthused.

“This season has been tough, but I’m putting that behind me and looking forward to working with the team and having Kay as my new teammate. I have a really good feeling about things, and I know that at the start of this season things were going well, and that my speed and fitness was where it needed to be to challenge for the podium. I’ll have the best bike and the best support next year, so I just want to keep working and improving through the winter and get back to where I was and then give 2022 everything I have. Finally, it looks like the season will be back to normal, and I’m really looking forward to that. I want to say thanks to everyone that has made this happen – I can’t wait to get onto my new bike and to start our winter testing and training.”

Fully healed, Roan, alongside new teammate Kay de Wolf, will soon begin testing in readiness for the opening round of the 2022 MX2 World Championship.
