Husqvarna has announced its official rider line-up for the World Enduro Super Series.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team line-up to compete in the World Enduro Super Series (WESS) has officially been announced as Graham Jarvis, Colton Haaker, Billy Bolt and Alfredo Gomez.

So far in 2018 we’ve seen each of the riders racing different events: Gomez (before he badly injured his leg), Bolt and Haaker in SuperEnduro. Meanwhile Jarvis has been going it alone in extreme events like the Ales Trem, Tough One and Hell’s Gate.

The newly formed WESS championship though will bring the official Husky team together for seven events in 2018.

Strong line up

Spearheading the team’s efforts in this multi-discipline enduro championship will be Graham Jarvis and Colton Haaker.

Three-time Erzbergrodeo Hare Scramble winner and holder of a record six victories at Romaniacs, Jarvis faces new challenges in the WESS championship with traditional enduro and beach races among the rounds.

Graham can rely on vast experience though in the opening round in Lagares, Erzberg and Romaniacs. He also has a decent record at the Megawatt.

Two-time SuperEnduro Champion, Haaker, brings plenty to the table and will be a strong contender in the mixed bag of WESS races with his broad range of riding skills.

Since joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Racing team last year, Billy has been putting himself about to gain experience across the disciplines. Still only 19-years-old, Bolt can only grow further as a rider in this series.

The main goal for reigning Erzberg Rodeo Hare Scramble champion, Alfredo Gomez will be working towards competitive return to racing after badly injuring his leg in a training accident earlier this year.

The Spaniards is doing everything possible to be fit for round one, the Extreme XL Lagares in Portugal, May 11-13.
