Australia’s Josh Strang will lead the five-rider Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory off-road team into the 2016 aboard the all-new Husqvarna FC 450.

The team, managed by Tim Weigand, also includes Andrew Delong, Jacob Argubright, former AMA 125cc motocross champion Mike Brown and new team member for 2016, Colton Haaker.

2015 saw Strang make the move to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna off-road team where he put together an impressive season taking home third overall in the Grand National Cross-Country series (GNCC).

Heading into his second year with the team the Australian looks forward to contesting both the GNCC and AMA National Enduro Series aboard the completely revised 450cc offering from Husqvarna.

“I am amped to race for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna again.” said Strang. “I feel like the new FC 450 is just what I need to get up on the top of the box.”

Strang will kick-off his 2016 campaign at the season opening round of the AMA National Enduro Series on 7 February in Wedgefield, SC.
