Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing has extended its contract with Zach Osborne for an additional year, taking him through the 2021 season.

Osborne, who recently represented Team USA at the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN), has two 250SX East titles to his name along with a 250MX outdoor championship, and completed his rookie premier class campaign this year with a number of podium results.

“I’m very grateful to continue my relationship with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing,” said Osborne. “We’ve had some very successful years and I’m looking forward to more.

“I’ve truly enjoyed being a part of this program since the revitalization of the brand started back in 2015 and it feels like just yesterday that I joined the team. We have a great group of people and I enjoy going racing with them every weekend.”

Team manager Bobby Hewitt added: “As a team manager you hope to have a least one opportunity in your career to have that one special rider – someone who is talented, motivated and driven to win races and be a champion.

“More importantly, someone who understands the meaning of a man’s character and those you represent on and off the track, and for me, Zach has been and always will be that guy. It has been a privilege to have Zach on the team and it is my hope that he will continue and finish his career with me and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team.”
