Starting this weekend, Mike Brown will be racing three consecutive rounds of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals in Canada aboard a Factory Husqvarna FC 450. The Factory Husqvarna racer is taking advantage of the break in the season to head north and race several rounds of the CMRC Canadian Motocross Nationals.

"We're really looking forward to having Mike Brown up here to race the nationals," said Canadian Race Team Manager, Andy White. "He’ll be racing the three July rounds of the series in the MX1 class. We brought him up a couple years ago to race and the fans love it. Mike is the kind of guy who always gives 110% so we know we're going to have three good rounds with him."

The Canadian Motocross National series is four rounds in to its 10-round tour, and Brown is joining the fray just in time for the toughest track of the championship. The deep sandy terrain of the Gopher Dunes National presents a formidable challenge for racers - one that Brown is looking forward to tackling on his Factory Husqvarna FC 450.

The Gopher Dunes National is the first of three rounds Mike will be racing in Canada. The Sand Del Lee (July 20) and Deschambault (July 27) will give Brownie three solid weekends of motocross racing during his Canadian summer retreat. Support for these three races comes courtesy of local Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers at each stop, starting with Machine Racing Husqvarna in Ontario. Support for the Sand Del Lee and Deschambault rounds will come from Quad Expert Husqvarna in Ottowa and Les Chutes Husqvarna in Quebec, respectively.
