Ahead of this weekend’s season-opening EnduroGP event in Finland, Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to reveal the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing EnduroGP preview video.
Fielding a four-rider squad across two classes, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team are geared up for what is expected to be a hugely challenging series opener. As the championship’s only ‘spiked tyre’ event, the Finnish winter enduro will sees team riders complete 19 hours of racing and a total of 26 special tests.
Frenchmen Mathias Bellino and enduro newcomer Christophe Charlier will spearhead Husqvarna’s EnduroGP class effort. Bellino returns to TE 300 2-stroke machinery, with Charlier campaigning on Husqvarna’s FE 350 4-stroke.
Danny McCanney also makes the switch to 2-stroke machinery for his Enduro 2 class campaign, competing aboard a TE 250. Racing alongside him on an FE 250 4-stroke is Pascal Rauchenecker.
The nine-round 2017 FIM Enduro World Championship begins this weekend in Finland before visiting Spain, Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Portugal, Great Britain, Argentina, ending in Germany in October.
