ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA left fans in awe when it revealed an all-new look and star-studded line-up for the 2021 racing season.
Among the riders sporting the team’s eye-catching new look was David Goosen, who was recently signed to represent Husqvarna in both the MX1 and MX2 Class this year. The rider was crowned the country’s National Motocross Champion in 2017 – a defining moment in Goosen’s racing career. While championship titles have narrowly evaded his grasp since then, the rider firmly believes that his race for national glory has only just begun.
“I’m so excited to be able to continue my journey racing motocross and signing with Husqvarna has just made it that much better!” said Goosen.The team also took the opportunity to welcome two 17-year-old riders stacked with talent to the National Enduro and Cross-Country squad respectively in 2021, namely Heinrich Aust and Davin Cocker. With multiple national champion Brett Swanepoel spearheading the hunt for national titles in both the National Cross Country OR1 Class and National Enduro E2 Class, the team’s newest recruits will grab the opportunity to race alongside the South African star. Aust will represent the team on the Enduro side in the E1 Class, and Cocker will attempt to chase down the OR3 title that narrowly evaded his grasp in the Cross-Country Championship earlier this year. “It all feels very real now – thank you to everyone who helped keep this dream alive! I can’t wait for this year with my Husqvarna team and to race alongside my teammate, Brett Swanepoel,” said an elated Cocker.
It is a big season for Swanepoel who will attempt to defend both the overall National Cross Country and National Enduro E2 Championship. The rider showed incredible commitment to fight back from a near career ending injury to pull off the double victory, which was last achieved by Louwrens Mahoney in 2006.The team was equally as excited to announce that it will once again support rising star Neil van der Vyver in the National Motocross Championship. The four-time national champion will represent the team in the 85cc Class this season.
“I am beyond excited with the team that we have assembled for 2021 and very pleased to have introduced not only the new team members but also an all-new look for Husqvarna,” said Fensham.
