Dawn of a New Era | Rockstar Energy Racing & Jason Anderson
We cannot state how big Husqvarna’s return to motocross is. To see one of the most iconic brands in motorcycle history fade out of favor somewhere in the last thirty years was a hard thing to swallow for many people, and despite numerous attempts and good intentions, there was no stability in the marketplace. Now acquired by KTM, the brand is on its way back to former fame with full-fledged teams in Europe and the United States. Their American efforts will be run through the Rockstar Energy Racing team and will have Jason Anderson, Martin Davalos, Zach Osborne, and Zach Bell all aboard white bikes in Supercross and motocross.
To celebrate the revival, Anderson took a trip to Sweden in autumn and competed in his first race aboard the bike at the 24MX Supercross in Stockholm. Rockstar Energy documented the travel with an incredible video series titled Dawn of a New Era, and the first episode of three can be seen below. Watch as Anderson peddles through the Swedish countryside aboard a standard European bicycle before meeting up with Husqvarna heroes Gunnar Lindstrom and Torsten Hallman.
On a side note, is it coincidence that Anderson’s new gear is Thor, a brand founded by Torsten Hallman, and that he is aboard a Husky? Either way, it looks awesome.
