One of the biggest details of the past week is Husqvarna’s announcement of a motocross racing program for 2015. A revival by KTM is expected to bring the European brand back to its former glory, but in motocross nothing matters until it’s lined up for a race. On Friday night, details of the partnership with Bobby Hewitt and Dave Gowland’s Rockstar Energy Racing team were released and we were on hand for the introduction on Friday night.
Yesterday we posted an interview with Hewitt and Gowland on the Rockstar Energy Racing team’s rise from private effort to full factory outfit, and below are more details from KTM North America’s President Jon Erik Burleson and the Husqvarna’s first signed motocross rider in the US, Jason Anderson.
