Mike Brown To Husqvarna For 2014
Husqvarna Motorcycles have confirmed that Mike Brown has signed to race for the brand in 2014.
Brown, who placed as runner up in this year’s AMA Endurocross championship, will front the Husqvarna’s 2014 Factory Off-Road Race Team in endurocross. The move from KTM to Husqvarna will also see Brown contest the Australian Enduro X Nationals in January and February plus selected rounds of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship along with his AMA EnduroCross Championship schedule.
“It’s a big deal to be associated with Husqvarna,” confirmed Brown. “For sure, I’m excited. EnduroCross is the main focus, but I’ll be racing a bit of everything – as much as I can to get the brand out there. I’m going to do some of the Australian Enduro X Nationals they’re having in January and February and then finish out the FIM Super Enduro Championship in Europe.
“I’m going to do the first three rounds of the GNCC series, some enduros and a few AMA Motocross races this year. I’ll be staying busy, for sure, but I’d rather race every weekend than sit around. I’m looking forward to it!”
Brown will be joined by Russell Bobbitt, Andrew DeLong and Jacob Argubright on first U.S. team to race the all-new Husqvarna Motorcycles in 2014.
