Haaker, one of the most decorated off-road racers in the U.S., will face a hungry field of premier class competition this season as the four-time AMA EnduroCross Champion looks to defend his title once again in 2021 aboard the FX 350. Additionally, as a three-time FIM SuperEnduro World Champion, Haaker will compete in select rounds of the AMA National Extreme Offroad Championship aboard the TE 300i this season.

Thad DuVall heads into the 2021 AMA Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) Series healthy and strong as he returns to the team aboard the FX 350. DuVall missed most of the 2020 championship due to a knee injury but he eased his way back at the end of the season to prepare for an XC1 Open Pro title fight in 2021. DuVall will also compete in the U.S. Sprint Enduro Series this season.

Craig DeLong, who clinched the GNCC XC2 250 Pro Championship as well as the National Enduro NE Pro2 title in 2020, will be mixing things up this season in terms of competition. Returning to defend his XC2 title aboard the FC 250, DeLong will make the jump into the AMA National Enduro Championship’s NE Pro1 division where he will line up on the FX 350.

Following a solid debut with the team in 2020, Austin Walton will return this season racing aboard the FX 450 in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) and the AMA National Grand Prix Championship. With a WORCS overall victory under his belt last season, Walton looks to take his winning experience into the new year as he contests his first-ever title in the premier class.

Tim Weigand, Team Manager: “I am excited for the 2021 season and how the team is structured. Colton and Craig are eager and ready to defend their 2020 championships. It will be great to have Thad back healthy and consistently running up front. Trevor has had some setbacks but is more determined than ever to come back stronger. Austin has a year under his belt now and understands what it takes to run up front so I have no doubts we will see him on the podium often.”

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team will kick off its 2021 off-road race schedule this weekend in Delano, California for Round 1 of the AMA National Grand Prix Championship. For more information on Husqvarna Motorcycles and its athletes, visit www.husqvarna-motorcycles.com.
