Solid Five-Rider Team set to Represent Husqvarna Motorcycles in AMA SX Competition
November 9, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles are excited to announce the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s rider line-up for the 2019 AMA Supercross season. No stranger to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team is Jason Anderson. Coming off a 2018 AMA Supercross 450SX Championship title, Anderson is back and prepared to contend aboard the FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION. Joining him in the 450SX premier class is, Zach Osborne. Osborne joins the ranks after earning two consecutive 250 East AMA Supercross championships and one AMA Pro Motocross championship.
The drive within the team doesn’t stop there, as Thomas Covington makes his U.S. racing comeback with the team aboard the FC 250 after a successful career overseas racing the FIM Motocross World Championship. Michael Mosiman will continue to race in the 250SX class joined by Jordan Bailey, making his AMA Supercross debut.
Bobby Hewitt- Team Manager: “Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing had a great 2018 Supercross season, in achieving two championships. Looking forward to 2019, we are going to work even harder to have a repeat successful season. Having both Anderson and Osborne in the 450 premier class is beneficial as we have young, up and coming 250 riders on our team. Covington, Mosiman, and Bailey are training hard for the upcoming season. I feel very fortunate to have a great staff, strong manufacturer support with Husqvarna Motorcycles, and a dedicated title sponsor again with Rockstar Energy. We are surrounded with 100% support and it gives everyone the confidence to have another historical season!”
Jason Anderson: “The 2019 season is rapidly approaching. I look forward to getting back to Supercross aboard my FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION. It’s going to be stacked this year in the 450 class and I look forward to consistently racing my way to the podium.”
Zach Osborne: “2019 marks my rookie season in the 450 class, an opportunity I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid. The 450 class is the pinnacle of the sport and I’m very excited to try my hand and see what I can do against the best in the sport.”
Thomas Covington: “I’m really excited to continue my relationship with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing here in the states with Bobby Hewitt’s team. They’ve had a lot of success in the last couple years so I’m thankful to get this opportunity.”
