“Lee got in touch a few weeks ago about riding for his team and I was so happy to get the offer to ride for both him and Husqvarna Motorcycles UK. I have only raced one British Round before at Landrake at the end of last year, but I enjoyed the experience and I will put everything in to my racing for 2020. Now I have signed for ASA United Husqvarna and tested the bike, I can’t wait to get going”
Lee Tolan: Team Principal, ASA United Husqvarna

We saw him race at the final round of the ACU British Motocross Championship at Landrake and were really impressed by what he did considering that was his first ride in the UK. He already has a great racing CV in Europe and with him racing in the EMX250 Championship and the British series, we are looking forward to working with him to achieve strong results next season.”
