FactoryOne Sherco has signed Ty Tremaine, Louise Forsley, and Quinn Wentzel to its enduro team for 2020. The trio of riders will finish out the 2019 season on Sherco motorcycles. Tremaine most recently finished fourth overall at the Donner Hare Scramble in California aboard a 300 SEF Factory, while Forsley raced the final round of the AMA EnduroCross series at the Ford Idaho Center in Boise, Idaho, on a 125 SE-R model where she finished fourth in the Women’s class.

Tremaine grew up riding high-speed desert races before joining the WORCS series. He became a professional at the tender age of 13 after seeing immediate success. He is a three-time Junior AMA EnduroCross champion as well as the 2015 FIM Junior SuperEnduro World champion. He is also a multitime X Games competitor. In addition to racing, Tremaine is a firefighter for Carson City, Nevada.

“I am so thankful for this opportunity to ride for FactoryOne Sherco,” Tremaine said. “The support from Sherco USA and team manager Wayne Dickert has been beyond my expectations. The Sherco 300 is an absolute weapon, and I am excited to go try put this thing on top of the box!”

In addition to coming back to trials riding, Louise Forsley will focus on the entire 2020 AMA EnduroCross season. You may see her at the starting line of a few Hard Enduros as well. She will spend most of her seat time on a 125 SE-R two-stroke machine.

Forsley’s background is rooted in the sport of MotoTrials. She is a six-time women’s NATC/AMA US MotoTrials champion and Trial des Nations team member. She finished the 2012 AMA EnduroCross season as runner-up before going on a five-year tour with Marvel Universe Live as a performer. Most recently she captured the SuperTrials series number 1 plate in Luckenbach, Texas.

“I’m really excited and honored to be part of the FactoryOne Sherco Team,” Forsley said. “Sherco USA and Ryan Young Products (RYP) have always supported me in my trials career, so I'm really excited to be brought on to the new EnduroCross team. I love the brand and the people, and I am really looking forward to the 2020 season!”

Quinn Wentzel’s priority will compete the American Hard Enduro series and other extreme races, but you may see him line up at a few AMA EnduroCross races too. He plans to cross train on a Sherco 300 trials bike as well.

Quinn Wentzel will be racing the remainder of the 2019 season on a 300 SE Factory model, defending his title at the formerly named Grimpossible Hard Enduro, which is now referred to as the Quinnpossible, on November 24, and then turning his focus to the Red Bull Override Hard Enduro in Decatur, Texas, in early December. Although he also raced motocross and GNCC as a child, Wentzel’s background is in MotoTrials, where he is a former High School and Expert class champion. He started riding extreme enduro in 2012 as a natural progression from trials to off-road. Wentzel’s list of accomplishments are extensive, including finishing as the runner-up in the 2019 American Hard Enduro series. He is also a winner or podium finisher of several extreme enduro races including Battle of the Goats, RevLimiter, Groundhog Extreme, Bad Medicine, and Grimpossible, and he has been a consistent top 10 finisher at King of the Motos, the Tennessee Knockout, and Tough Like RORR. “I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the FactoryOne Sherco USA off-road team,” Wentzel said. “I started my trials career back in 2010 with Team RYP Sherco and have had amazing support from them throughout my career, so I am stoked to reunite with them in enduro. The 300 SE Factory is an awesome machine, and I can’t wait to see what I can do on it. I want to thank the guys at Sherco USA for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to what the season has in store.”
