Jamie Law is to ride for the new-look Apico Husqvarna team as it moves from the MX2 into the MX1 class in Britain next season. He’ll be racing an FC450 alongside Matt Burrows in the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship and the Michelin MX Nationals.
The team will also be supporting Jack Lindsey in the British Youth Nationals and Michelin MX Nationals as he moves up to the Big Wheel 85cc class.
Law said: “After sitting out the start of the 2016 season, I was returning to racing towards to the end of the season with a renewed passion and focus to do well at the top of the sport in the UK. With the support and backing of Apico and Husqvarna I’m really excited to start working towards the new season with a great team.”
Burrows said: “During the 2015 season I was able to ride for the team as a fill in rider in the MX2 class, so it is great to be back riding for the team in the MX1 class. It’s also great to have such a strong package around us as a team so that myself and Jamie can focus on getting the results on track when the gates drops in March.”
Speaking about the move to MX1, Apico’s Dylan Brown said: “After two successful season in the MX2 class it was felt that it was the right time to move into the MX1 and continue the progression of the team. We are looking forward to another great season with Jamie and Matt in 2017 as title sponsor and showcasing the range of fantastic products at Apico.”
Husqvarna’s David Edwards said: “It is great to be continuing to work with the Apico Husqvarna team for 2017 and the new line up of Jamie and Matt. It will also be great to see the team moving into the MX1 class and represent the Husqvarna brand in a new class.”
