Graham Jarvis will lead the efforts of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing extreme enduro team during the 2017 and 2018 seasons following a contract extension with Husqvarna Motorcycles.

Starting 2016 with a runner-up result at Minas Riders in Brazil, Graham put in two dominant performances to secure a third win at Erzberg and a record-breaking fifth career victory at Romaniacs.

In the midst of one of his most successful seasons to date, Jarvis looks forward to continuing his relationship with Husqvarna aboard his weapon of choice, the TE 300 two-stroke.

“It’s fantastic that I’m going to race with Husqvarna for another two years,” said Jarvis. “The new TE 300 is an amazing machine, I’ve been racing it for a few months and already I’ve earned two major wins on it – Erzberg and Romaniacs.

“Within Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing I feel like I’m part of a global team. My focus is on the big outdoor extreme enduro events, while I’ll also be trying to squeeze in as many other races as possible. I feel like I’m in the best place right now and I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”

Graham will now turn his focus to the The Battle of Vikings event in Sweden on 29-30 June, before heading to America for the 2016 Tennessee Knockout extreme enduro event on 21 August.
