SX2 title-threat Dylan Wills has revealed he’ll transfer to the Dyson Motorsports team for the upcoming 2017 Australian Supercross Championship after spending majority of the year with KSF Racing.

Wills will take his personal Husqvarna deal to the outfit and will join KTM-mounted Dylan Wood, an up and coming rider that the team supported for the duration of the Motul MX Nationals this year.

It’s understood the team will be headed up by highly-regarded technician Jess Foreman, who will also serve as Wills’ mechanic throughout the six-round championship.

“It’s a new team coming from sprintcars that will be called Dyson Motorsport,” Wills told “Our main sponsor is Complete Parts and Equipment Solutions, and I brought my own Husqvarna deal over to it, so I’ll still be on the FC 250.

“They did the whole motocross season with Dylan Wood and they were looking for a second rider for supercross, so that’s where I come in. I was lucky enough to have a deal to leave my other team if something better came up, so obviously a massive thank you goes out to KSF Racing for being so cool about it and letting me move on, and a big thank you to Sean and Felicity Dyson for the opportunity.

“At the moment I’m bringing in all my own sponsors such as Alpinestars, Bell, Oakley and Pirelli – we’ve got a pretty good set-up. The team manager is Jess Foreman, he was Matt Moss’ mechanic at Suzuki and Caleb Ward’s mechanic at KTM, so we have an awesome little set-up and I think everyone at the races will be surprised with how good it is.”

The number 64 says he feels better prepared than ever heading into supercross, setting firm expectations to be mixing it up with the front-runners in the quarter-litre division after finishing seventh in the standings last season.

“My preparation has been the best probably out of any season,” he continued. “I had a chance to do a couple of days testing with Ken Wheeler from Factory Spec and we got the bike exactly how I wanted it. It’s a really awesome package and I’m just really excited to go racing.

“My expectations are just the same as usual. I want to get out, get some good starts and run up with these front boys. I’m not scared of these Americans coming over, I’m actually excited to bang bars with them – I think if there’s going to be a time to put it to them, it’s now.”

KSF Racing is still anticipated to be attending the rounds of the Australian Supercross Championship, with newly-appointed rider Jesse Madden set to fulfill the vacant position left open by Wills, alongside Suzuki-mounted international Daniel Herrlein. The opening round is set for this Saturday, 23 September, at Jimboomba in Queensland.
