Husqvarna Australia Brand Manager Jon Hafey: “The Fox brand name has a long and distinguished history in the sport of dirt bike racing – just like Husqvarna does – so it’s a nice fit for the Husqvarna Off-Road Team to align with Fox for season 2017.
Our off-road team racers have been some of the big hitters and improvers in AORC and enduro-X racing in recent years so we won’t send them into battle with anything less than top-quality gear. Fox has the boys covered from head to foot with nothing short of but the best stuff.”
Scott Runciman – Fox Australia Brand Manager: “We’re super excited to be sponsoring team Husky; we’ve been watching their growth and their re-establishment over the last few years. We’ve been speaking with Glenn over the last few years trying to get something going, but obviously with our commitments to another team we weren’t able to get there. But once that opportunity opened up, we couldn’t get onto it fast enough.”
