Supercross and motocross rider lineup announced at Murrieta headquarters

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing took the opportunity to introduce its 2019 Supercross and motocross rider lineup earlier this week at Husqvarna Motorcycles’ North American headquarters in Murrieta, California.

Reigning AMA Supercross 450 class champion Jason Anderson returns to the team for 2019 and is prepared to defend his title aboard his FC 450 Rockstar Edition machine.

“The 2019 season is rapidly approaching and I look forward to getting back to Supercross,” Anderson said. “It’s going to be stacked this year in the 450 class and I look forward to consistently racing my way to the podium.”

“2019 marks my rookie season in the 450 class, an opportunity I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid,” Osborne said. “The 450 class is the pinnacle of the sport and I’m very excited to try my hand and see what I can do against the best in the sport.”

Anderson’s 2018 450SX title

Husqvarna Motorcycles’ North American headquarters almost always features a bike on display in the entryway of the building. For the Supercross and motocross team’s introduction, Husky appropriately had an FC 450 Rockstar Edition on display with red No. 1 plates in recognition of Anderson’s 2018 450SX title.
