A three-rider Husqvarna Junior Racing Team has been outlined for 2023, with returning duo Heath Fisher and Jack Deveson to be joined by emerging youngster Ethan Wolfe in a selection of junior national and state championships throughout the upcoming season.

Fisher achieved national title success last year and claimed the 85cc 12-under 14 years crown at the Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMX), which came in addition to immense success internationally including the American Amateur National Motocross Championship at the famed Loretta Lynn’s MX.

Making it a TC 85 1-2 at the AJMX event, Deveson joined Fisher on the podium in 2022. The duo, both 14 years of age, also represented Australia at the Junior Motocross World Championship, with Fisher finishing an impressive P7 in the 85cc class in Finland.

For 2023, Deveson will compete onboard a TC 125 and FC 250, while Fisher will have the chance to win another 85cc national title, also racing onboard the TC 125 this year.

A welcome addition to the Husqvarna Junior Racing Team this year, reigning AJMX 65cc 7-under 10 years champion Wolfe will chase further national title success equipped with the TC 65, the 10-year-old taking to the gate also in the 85cc ranks.

“Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia is excited to bring young Northern NSW rider Ethan Wolfe into the team for 2023,” said KTM Group Australia national brand manager Tam Paul. “The current Australian 65cc champion has more than earned his place and will join returning standout riders and current Australian 85cc number one and two, Heath Fisher and Jack Deveson, in what will become an extremely potent team contesting for many wins across the country.

“With Braden Plath graduating into seniors in 2023, we thank him for his great representation of the Husqvarna Junior Racing Team, both on and off the track. Of course our success wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of our longterm major partners Motorex, Fly, Bridgestone, SKDA, ODI and Funnel Web.”

For 2023, the KTM Junior Australian Motocross Championship (AJMX) is set to take place at the Acacia Hills Motocross Club, Northern Territory,  between 11-16 July.
