Skyler Howes claimed multiple stage wins and podiums in the Rally-Raid World Championship and major rally events with Husqvarna.

Husqvarna Factory Racing and Skyler Howes have parted company with the manufacturer thanking him for his commitment, enthusiasm, and success during his two years racing for the team in both the FIM World RallyHusqvarna Factory Racing wishes Skyler well in his future endeavours.

After thorough discussions, Howes and Husqvarna Factory Racing have mutually agreed to conclude their partnership with immediate effect, a press release from Husqvarna stated.

Signing with Husqvarna Factory Racing prior to the 2021 Sonora Rally, the American immediately made his presence felt, taking second place in the overall classification of the rally. Howes would end 2021 strongly, claiming multiple stage wins and overall event podiums.

Following a disappointing retirement in the 2022 Dakar Rally, Howes bounced back later that season to take victories in both the Sonora Rally and Rallye du Maroc. The 2023 Dakar saw Howes lead the early stages of the event before ultimately securing third in the overall classification – his best Dakar finish to date.

It seems highly unlikely that the super talent of Howes would be on the sidelines for long so we would be expecting an announcement before Dakar on his signing with another team somewhere.
