A big switch around within the KTM/Husqvarna camp is Alfredo Gomez joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team.
Following two successful years with KTM, Gomez has rejoined his old teammate Graham Jarvis under the Husqvarna awning.
“Spending some of my first years as a professional rider with Husqvarna Motorcycles, I always felt comfortable on Husqvarna machinery,” told Gomez.
“I truly believe that becoming a member of the global Rockstar Energy Husqvarna squad will help me take my career even further.
“The switch comes after what has been one of the best seasons in my career.
It has of course been a pretty standout year for the Spaniard.
Highlight no doubt was winning the ErzbergRodeo back in June and finishing as runner-up in the SuperEnduro World Championship.
“Winning two out of four rounds in the 2017 SuperEnduro World Championship I then went on to secure what has been one of the most important wins in my career, at Erzberg.
“Following a great season, I’m confident I can now push for winning results in SuperEnduro. It’s going to be a tough series, but I can’t wait to get started in Poland.”
Gomez will make his first outing in Husqvarna colours at the opening round of the SuperEnduro championship in Poland on December 9.
