The new-look Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team squad will field American Mike Brown in this week’s Australian Four-Day Enduro at Dungog, NSW.

Brown will renew acquaintances with team regulars Glenn Kearney (E3 class), Lachy Stanford (E2 class), Scott Keegan (E1 class) and Damien Smith (Vets), as he rides a Husqvarna FE250 in the E1 category.

The 41-year-old American rode for the Aussie team in its very first outings in the Enduro-X series in February and March.

“The boys all look to be on track, and Brownie, he’s just trying to keep clear of snakes,” team manager Glenn Kearney said. “Other than that he’s happy.

“Obviously the first challenge is to try to get everyone to the finish safe and sound – which is a tough ask over four days – and the next is to do it with good results.”

Brown went on to finish sixth in the Enduro-X championship despite missing the opening round.
