Husqvarna Motorcycles will support a broad roster of Australian national and junior riders throughout the 2021 season, the brand outlining its program that will feature a mixture of capable racers aiming to make their mark in the sport.

Leading the program in the ProMX Championship series will be experienced 25-year-old Dylan Wills who will pilot a FC 250 outdoors prior to stepping into the Husqvarna Australia Racing team in the Australian Supercross Championship later this year.

Western Australian teenager Brock Flynn will represent Husqvarna in MX3 at the national level, maintaining his longstanding relationship with the brand. At 16, Flynn will also contest the state championships in WA riding both the FC 250 and FC 450.

A talented junior team line-up has also been assembled, including Jack Mather (FC 250/TC 125), Heath Fisher (TC 85) and Braden Plath (TC 85), who won the 65cc World Championship in 2018 with the brand.

In addition, multiple-time national champion and current J3 class title-holder Billy Hargy (FC 250/TC 125) will be Husqvarna’s junior rider in the Australian Off-Road Championship for the coming season.

Ben Grabham:
To continue our support of some of Australia’s top young juniors is significant for the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand and in addition we have the supported national riders that we are getting behind this season. The fact that we have Dylan Wills, who will be a part of this program for ProMX and then join the factory team in Supercross, really demonstrates our commitment to these young riders and where our platform can lead them.

Dylan Wills:
I’m really happy to do another deal with the KTM Group and to be back riding the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand in 2021. I’ve been with them for a lot of years now, so it’s good to keep that relationship going and I’m excited for ProMX to start. It’s all really familiar for me, we have a good package coming together and I am looking forward to going and getting it done on-track.

Brock Flynn:
It’s good to continue with Husqvarna Motorcycles for another year and moving up from their junior program I look forward to carrying this support into this next stage of my career. The goal is to deliver the best results I can and represent them well, so I’m excited to be riding MX3 this year and also the state rounds in WA as well.

Jack Mather:
This year will be good to get going again with racing and I can’t wait for it to get started. We will ride the junior classes and also hopefully some MX3 rounds in ProMX as well where we can. It’s exciting for us as racing was interrupted last year, so I will be ready to go.
