Sherco USA is making big moves in 2020 – Quinn Wentzel, Ty Tremaine and Louise Forsley first signings for the new FactoryONE Sherco Enduro Team.
Building their profile and commitment in North America, Sherco USA have taken a bigger step ahead of the 2020 season with the creation of the FactoryONE Sherco Enduro Team. High-profile signings are already on the books with Quinn Wentzel, Ty Tremaine and Louise Forsley putting pen to paper.
The FactoryONE Sherco Team has a wide experience in trials with their top rider Pat Smage having 11 AMA National Trials Championships under his belt. For the newly formed FactoryONE Enduro team they will count with a planned eight-rider line-up set to compete in American Hard Enduro, EnduroCross, WORCS, GNCC and NEPG plus selected international events.
By implication that means further announcements are due for the new team and we’re expecting some big news in the very near future on the rest of the line-up.
Meanwhile Wentzel, Tremaine and Forsley are already on their new Shercos and will finish their 2019 season onboard the white and blue machines with Tremaine (above) having already delivered a fourth place at the Donner Hare Scramble and Forsley finishing fourth at the last round of the EnduroCross.
Wentzel will defend his Grimpossible Hard Enduro, newly named Quinnpossible, this November 24 on a Sherco SE-R 300 before going to the new Hard Enduro event in Texas, the Red Bull OverRide in early December. Having recently finished second at the 2019 AHES Wentzel’s priority is focus on the AHES and other Hard Enduro races with some occasional appearances at the EnduroCross series: “I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the FactoryONE Sherco USA Offroad team,” said Wentzel.
“I started my Trials career back in 2010 with Team Sherco RYP (Ryan Young Products) and have had amazing support from them throughout my career, so I am stoked to reunite with them in Enduro. The SE 300 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 look forward to what the season has in store.”
Ty Tremaine, complete with a fresh haircut, will focus on EnduroCross and WORCS champships while also lining up at some hard enduro races along the way, switching between a Sherco 300 four stroke and two-stroke depending on the event: “I am so thankful for this opportunity to ride for FactoryONE Sherco. The support from Sherco USA and Team Manager, Wayne Dickert, has been beyond my expectations,” admitted Tremaine. “The Sherco 300 is an absolute weapon and I am excited to go try to put this thing on top of the box!”
Louise Forsley plans to go back to trials, where she already has won six AMA championships, plus will take on the full EnduroCross season in 2020 plus says she might be at the start line of a few hard enduro races in the process.
“I'm really excited and honoured to be part of the FactoryONE Sherco Team,” said Forsley who’s planning on contesting the SE-R 125 for the indoor and hard enduros. “Sherco USA and 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!”
