Husqvarna Motorcycles have announced a new three-year contract between Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team and Billy Bolt. 

 

Young British racer Billy Bolt has signed a contract extension to continue his successful partnership with the Rockstar Husqvarna team until the end of the 2021 season. 

Bolt is one of the brightest stars in enduro and has enjoyed a solid season in 2018. On the back of a rapid rise through the ranks in SuperEnduro to claim second overall in the championship, Bolt switched to outdoors and the new World Enduro Super Series competition – kicking off the championship with an impressive victory at Extreme XL Lagares. 

Sitting third in the WESS provisional standings, Billy is the highest-placed Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team rider at the halfway mark in the championship.

21 year-old Bolt is pleased to re-sign with the team which has already brought him so much success: “I’m really happy to renew my contract with Husqvarna for an additional three years,” said Bolt. 

“I’m in a great place right now and I am confident the team can provide all that’s needed to take my career to the next level. Extending my contract like this gives me the security and stability to continue improving in the future. The atmosphere within the team is one of the best in the paddock, which is a huge part of why I’m so pleased to be continuing with them. I feel fortunate to be part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team and I’m super motivated to continue giving my best.” 

 

Andi Hölzl – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager commented: “Billy is one of the most talented up and coming riders and we are extremely pleased that we will continue working with him for the next three years.” 

Kicking off the outdoor racing season with victory at the Extreme XL Lagares and winning the Prologue at Romaniacs, he has already demonstrated he’s a top contender at the World Enduro Super Series. His third position in the provisional WESS standings shows what he’s capable of. We’re happy to have him aboard and we look forward to continue supporting his racing goals in the future.”
