A broad roster of Australian national and junior riders will be supported by Husqvarna Motorcycles throughout the 2021 season, the brand outlining its program that will feature a mixture of capable racers.

It will be led in the Penrite ProMX Championship by experienced 25-year-old Dylan Wills who will pilot a FC 250 outdoors prior to stepping into the official team in the Australian Supercross Championship.

“I’m really happy to do another deal with the KTM Group and to be back riding the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand in 2021,” said Wills. “I’ve been with them for a lot of years now, so it’s good to keep that relationship going

“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.”

Western Australian teenager Brock Flynn, 16, will represent Husqvarna in MX3 at the national level, maintaining his longstanding relationship with the brand.

“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,” Flynn commented. “The goal is to deliver the best results I can and represent them well, so I’m excited to be riding MX3 this year.”

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.

“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,” stated KTM Group motorsport coordinator Ben Grabham.

“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.”
