GRAHAM JARVIS FINISHES THIRD AT ROOF OF AFRICA

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S HARD ENDURO STAR ENDS 2017 SEASON WITH PODIUM RESULT
Bringing his 2017 Hard Enduro season to a highly-positive close, Graham Jarvis has placed third overall at the 50th running of the Roof of Africa event in Lesotho, southern Africa.
With the traditional ‘Round the Houses’ race and 40-kilometer time trial kicking things off at the three-day long event, Jarvis completed a strong opening day. Roof of Africa winner in 2016, in placing fourth Jarvis ensured a positive start in his bid for a fifth event win.
Day two – the first full offroad day of the race – saw Graham place third. Completing a largely mistake-free day, he finished 10-minutes down on winner Wade Young. Hoping that the third and final day would deliver increasingly technical trails, Jarvis was again unable to match the pace of the young South African riders ahead of him.
With the faster terrain better suited to his younger rivals Graham nevertheless gave his all to successfully complete the final day and in doing so end what has been another hugely successful season with yet another well-deserved podium result.
Graham Jarvis: “The 50th Roof of Africa’s been a great event. It wasn’t to be for me and a fifth win, but I’m still pleased with a podium result. Things weren’t quite as tough I’d hoped they’d be, but it’s still been great to end the year with a strong result. I’m happy enough with the way the first day went - I knew the riding would be fast, it always is on day one. Things were pretty fast throughout day two, and similar again on the third and last day. I didn't do too much wrong really on either day, it’s just Wade and Travis were faster. Ten minutes behind with one day to go wasn’t ideal, but like I said I found it hard to go fast where the grass was long and there was no clear track to follow. It’s been a long, tough season, but it’s been a good one.”
Results — 2017 Roof of Africa
1. Wade Young (Sherco) 10:41:28
2. Travis Teasdale (KTM) 10:52:34
3. Graham Jarvis (Husqvarna) 11:04:06



 

PODIUM FINISHES FOR WILSON AND OSBORNE AT PARIS SX

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING DUO IMPRESS DURING 34TH RUNNING OF EUROPE’S #1 INDOOR EVENT
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Dean Wilson and Zach Osborne showed impressive speed during the two nights of racing at the annual Paris SX where both riders enjoyed podium finishes at the end of the first night of racing. Returning to the podium on Sunday night, Wilson placed third to match his Saturday result. 

For reigning US East SX Champion Zach Osborne, the Paris SX event offered the chance to mix things up and compete on a 450 ahead of his planned switch to the AMA 450 Pro Motocross Championship, later in 2018. Despite only limited seat time on his FC 450 Osborne earned a well-deserved runner-up result to Marvin Musquin at the end of the opening night’s competition, running second from the drop of the gate to the chequered flag. Completing the opening lap of Sunday night’s main event in fifth, Osborne battled hard throughout the race to move to fourth on lap 15, where he remained to the finish. 

Making his final competitive outing ahead of the start of the 2018 AMA Supercross Championship, Dean Wilson enjoyed a largely successful time at the Paris SX, placing third on both nights. Fourth out of the gate on Saturday night, Dean needed just to two laps before moving into the third-place position behind teammate Osborne. Completing 21 mistake-free laps, Dean finished third, just 11 seconds off winner Musquin. In Sunday night’s main event Dean started third, remained in third for all 21 laps to match his Saturday night result and head back to the States with a 3/3 scorecard. 

Zach Osborne"I battled my way to fourth today, and it was nothing special. It was disappointing after the first night because I felt my race craft on the bike was pretty good, and it was maybe better than my one-lap speed. I only rode the bike a couple of times, and I came here to enjoy myself and do some racing, so all things considered the weekend was pretty successful. I wanted to feel-out the 450. I’ll be racing it outdoors next year and wanted some information and to build on that. There was some good data for Aldon [Baker] and also the guys in terms of the bike. It was a good, fun, off-season race." 

Dean Wilson"The weekend was pretty good, and I learned a lot. I was a little bit disappointed in terms of how my overall scores went, but I put myself in bad positions because my starts were terrible. I felt like my speed was good but putting it all together wasn't. I have six more weeks, so I know what I need to work on going into Anaheim. I want to get better as a rider because I feel I can go as fast as Marv for a lap or six or seven minutes, but I cannot do it for fifteen minutes, and that was kinda frustrating. I want to go back, work hard and aim to beat Marvin."

Results – Paris SX1 (450 class) 

Saturday night 
1. Marvin Musquin (KTM) 16:18.164; 2. Zach Osborne (Husqvarna) 16:22.218; 3. Dean Wilson (Husqvarna) 16:29.659; 4. Cole Seely (Honda) 16:51.772; 5. Cédric Soubeyras (Suzuki) 16:59.039…

HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLES ANNOUNCE OFFICIAL RIDER LINE-UP FOR DAKAR RALLY 2018

Courtesy of Husqvarna Motorcycles 


PABLO QUINTANILLA & ANDREW SHORT TO TAKE ON THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS EVENT IN THE RALLY CALENDAR FOR ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing – Line – Up for Dakar Rally 2018
Husqvarna Motorcycles are proud to confirm their official rider line-up for the 2018 Dakar Rally. Following an impressive season, FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion Pablo Quintanilla will be joined by Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team partner Andrew Short, with the duo set to tackle the two-week-long adventure aboard the all-new FR 450 Rally.
Making history for Husqvarna Motorcycles by successfully defending his Rallies World Championship title at the series finale in Morocco, Pablo Quintanilla will be launching an attack for the top step of the podium at the next edition of the Dakar Rally, in January. Less than 50 days before the start of the big event in Lima, Peru, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rally star is confident of a strong performance in the dunes and endless offroad trails of South America.
Enjoying a steady debut aboard the FR 450 Rally at the final round of the 2017 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship in Morocco, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Andrew Short is all set for his first Dakar. Enjoying several busy months of testing and training, the acclaimed US racer will be a strong asset for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team this January. Focused on gathering further rally experience Andrew will be looking for a strong and mistake-free performance all the way to the finish line in Córdoba, Argentina.
Competing as a teammate to Pablo Quintanilla during 2017, Frenchman Pela Renet continues to make progress as he recovers from the injuries sustained during the Atacama Rally in August. Requiring surgery on his neck and left shoulder, two-time Enduro World Champion Renet is focused on making the best recovery possible.
Taking place on January 6 to 20 in Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina, the 2018 Dakar Rally will be a special event for many reasons. Including more than 5.000km of timed specials and with a total distance of almost 9.000km to be run by all competitors, it will be the 40th edition of the prestigious annual event and the 10th time the race takes place in South America. To make things ever more interesting race organizers have included an impressive seven 100% offroad stages to be contested in the massive dunes and offroad sections of the three South American countries.
Pablo Quintanilla #10
Pablo Quintanilla: “I’m really looking forward to the coming Dakar. It’s been a really good season for me, I’m really motivated to do well at the biggest race of the year. We’ve all worked hard to improve in every little aspect and I’m really confident in my team and what I’m capable of. The key of the race for me is to know when to push and when to ride cautiously. This is something that comes with experience and it takes time to understand when it’s the right moment to attack a stage. We’ve also made a big step forward with the new FR 450 Rally. The updated bike is much lighter, easier to handle and gives you an impressive feeling of safety when going fast. We’ve been working hard to develop this machine for two years and I’m really satisfied with the end result. I enjoy racing it and I’m confident that with this bike and such a strong team we can fight for victory in January.”
Andrew Short #54
Andrew Short: “I’m really excited to be heading towards my first Dakar. The team gave me an awesome opportunity to take a step forward in my career and I can’t thank them enough for that. The Morocco Rally was a big learning experience for me and since then I’ve not stopped working. We’ve also had some good days of testing and navigation training with Pablo and it was a blast. For my first Dakar in January the main goal is to avoid mistakes and continue improving my skills in navigation. One of the most exciting things with rally racing is the fact that you’re in the zone the whole time. Since you never know what’s around the next turn, the whole experience turns into one big adventure. It’s a good feeling and something I’m addicted to now. I want to take little steps and get better with the goal to continue improving my speed and finish my first Dakar without any issues.”

The AMA Pro Rookie of the Year Award identifies the first-year professional rider who shows the most improvement as they make their professional debut. Parker Wewerka took home this prestigious award after his eighth-place overall finish in the AMA Pro division, along with the highly-sought after Pro-Am National title. 
Noah Mickelson claimed top honors as the Amateur Rider of the Year. The Minnesota native clinched both championships in the 450 A and Pro Sport divisions, and will make his debut in the Pro-Am ranks in 2018.

Pennsylvania’s Zack Decker took the top spot in championship points for the Super Mini (12-15) and 250 Mod (13-17) divisions, in addition to third place in the Youth All Star (13-15) class, which earned him this esteemed honor.
Brandon Lauer, mechanic for the newly crowned AMA Pro ATV Champion Joel Hetrick, was recognized as the Mechanic of the Year.

Wiseco was presented the Sponsor of the Year award, after their decision to step up as the series title sponsor. Their support expanded to both the professional and amateur racers where their on-site display traveled to each of the nine ATVMX rounds. 
The Team of the Year Award is based on the team that displays not only exceptional results on the track, but also carries a positive demeanor off the track. In the end, it was Phoenix Racing who took home this prestigious award throughout their commitment to the professional and amateur ranks. 
Each year MX Sports and the ATVPG recognizes those members of our race family that we lost, and this year five different individuals were remembered, including Kyler Lenz, 14, who we tragically lost at the Spring Creek ATVMX National in July.

10-Round Professional and Amateur Circuit
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (November 17, 2017) – MX Sports Pro Racing and the ATV Promoters Group (ATVPG) are pleased to announce the 2018 schedule for the Wiseco ATV Motocross National Championship (ATVMX) presented by CST Tires, an AMA National Championship. The 33rd annual Wiseco ATVMX series will feature 10 rounds for both the AMA Pro class and amateur competitors.
The 2018 season will kick off with the fourth annual FLY Racing ATV Supercross at the popular Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. For the first time ever, the race will be a points-paying event for ATVMX Pro and select amateur championship classes, with points being awarded in the main events.
From there, the series moves to the newest addition on the circuit, South of the Border in Hamer, South Carolina, and then will move on to take place at staple stops such as Underground MX, Ironman Raceway, High Point Raceway, Muddy Creek Raceway, Sunset Ridge MX, Unadilla MX and RedBud, before cumulating at the popular Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. 
"The 2017 Wiseco ATV Motocross series maintained the great tradition of competition that has been a hallmark of the program since its inception in 1985,” said MX Sports Pro Racing Competition Director, Roy Janson. "In addition to a great year of Pro Racing, culminating with a new first time National Champion, Joel Hetrick, all of the other elements that make up the series remained strong for 2017, with consistent entry numbers and a highly competitive year of amateur competition, supported by strong viewership numbers on both MAVTV and RacerTV."
The Wiseco ATVMX series has been the home for four-wheeled ATV racing since 1985, and remains America’s premier ATV racing series. This year, Joel Hetrick broke through for his first AMA Pro class championship, breaking the five-year streak of Chad Wienen.

The AMA also provides money-saving discounts on products and services for its members. Through the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, Ohio, the AMA honors the heroes and heritage of motorcycling. For more information, visit www.americanmotorcyclist.com. Not a member?
