Australia’s two-time Enduro World Champion Matt Phillips will switch to Sherco’s factory team for the 2016 season, the deal made official by the French manufacturer overnight.

Phillips, 22, will reunite with the CH Racing team, in which he won his Enduro Junior world title with in 2013, and will campaign the immaculate Sherco 450 SEF-R.

“I am very pleased to be joining the Sherco organisation and racing on the CH Racing team, which a few years ago led me to discover the World Enduro Championship,” Phillips said. “It’s really great to be on a new motorcycle. I was surprised by the bike, it feels really comfortable and I’m beyond excited to return to competition.”

Marc Teissier: “It is important for us to rejuvenate our workforce and think about the future. Matthew, who has already won two world championship titles, will give a more international image to Sherco in countries where we are in the developmental stage. The factory and CH Racing will work hand in hand so that he has the best possible equipment.”
