Dylan Wills will lead the charge for the Husqvarna supported riders during the MX Championship before moving over to the factory team when the SX season gets underway.
After annoucning their factory Australian supported riders earlier this year, KTM and Husqvarna have announced their both their 2021 supported rides including a host of junior riders who will race under their respective banners.

Leading the Husqvarna program in the ProMX Championship series will be experienced 25-year-old Dylan Wills who will pilot a FC 250 outdoors prior to stepping into the Husqvarna Australia Racing team in the Australian Supercross Championship later this year.

Western Australian teenager Brock Flynn will represent Husqvarna in MX3 at the national level, maintaining his longstanding relationship with the brand. At 16, Flynn will also contest the state championships in WA riding both the FC 250 and FC 450.

A talented junior team line-up has also been assembled, including Jack Mather (FC 250/TC 125), Heath Fisher (TC 85) and Braden Plath (TC 85), who won the 65cc World Championship in 2018 with the brand.

In addition, multiple-time national champion and current J3 class title-holder Billy Hargy (FC 250/TC 125) will be Husqvarna's junior rider in the Australian Off-Road Championship for the coming season.

"To continue our support of some of Australia's top young juniors is significant for the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand and in addition we have the supported national riders that we are getting behind this season." KTM Group Australia's Ben Grabham stated.

"The fact that we have Dylan Wills, who will be a part of this program for ProMX and then join the factory team in Supercross, really demonstrates our commitment to these young riders and where our platform can lead them.

Over in the orange camp it will be Jy Roberts, a longtime KTM racer who will continue aboard the 250 SX-F in the MX2 class throughout the ProMX championship. At 20 years of age, Roberts is eager for national competition to resume and to further himself at this stage of his young career.

In addition, KTM Junior Racing graduate Ryan Alexanderson will also be supported by KTM as he transitions into the senior ranks, equipped with the 250 SX-F and focusing on the MX3 development category this season. Both will also contest the Australian Supercross Championship later in the year.

KTM Junior Racing will also form a significant part of KTM's program in 2021, featuring Jet Alsop (250 SX-F/125 SX), Kayden Minnear (250 SX-F/125 SX), Jett Burgess-Stevens (250 SX-F/125 SX) and Cooper Ford (85 SX/65 SX), each of them holding national and state titles and looking to continue those winning ways into the future.



"The KTM Group is dedicated to supporting the up and coming next generation. Our riders are the elite juniors in Australia and we have seen the likes of Mitch Evans, Regan Duffy, Mason Semmens and Jett Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence rise through our junior program in recent years." Grabham said.

"In addition, the riders we are supporting in MX2 and MX3 at a national level provide a pathway to aim for our KTM Australia Racing team in the future."
