Factory Husqvarna Reveals 6-Rider Lineup for 2020
Husqvarna Motorcycles North America, Inc., is excited to announce Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s rider lineup for the 2020 race season, which includes a dynamic and seasoned roster for both the 450 Class and 250 Class. A total of six riders, three in each class, will embark on a championship quest for the brand during this summer's Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
Headlining the team’s 450 Class effort is Jason Anderson (#21), who is back and prepared to contend for a championshiponce again aboard the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION. Joining him in the premier 450 Class for the second year is former 250 Class Champion Zach Osborne (#16), who put forth an impressive 2019 rookie season aboard the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION. And, joining the team officially for 2020, is fellow former 250 Class titleholder Dean Wilson (#15), who stepped in last season as a fill-in rider to put forth solid results aboard the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION.
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing 250 Class roster boasts a solid trio as well, including Michael Mosiman (#28), who will look to build from a breakout year in 2019. Making his full-time 250 Class debut is Jalek Swoll (#352), the 2019 Nicky Hayden AMA Motocross Horizon Award winner. Rounding out the lineup is the team’s newest addition, RJ Hampshire (#24), who will be in search of a breakout season of his own entering his sixth year of 250 Class competition.
Bobby Hewitt, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager:
“Going into this upcoming season, I believe that we have the strongest group of riders yet. Having a two-time champion in Jason Anderson, a three-time champion with Zach Osborne, and also Dean Wilson, the crowd’s favorite, as a one-time champion really gives us a solid 450 program. On the 250 side, having secured Michael Mosiman for another two years is big as we believe that Michael is going to win some races and contest the championship. RJ Hampshire, who is a veteran rider and knows how to win races, is new to the program and we believe that he is ready to compete for the championship as well. And last but not least, Jalek Swoll, who has really improved his technique as a rookie and we look forward to seeing him run up front, too.”
