Husqvarna Motorcycles UK have sealed a deal to welcome ASA United to their Motocross team line-up in 2020.
Headed up by Lee Tolan, the team will be competing on FC 250 and FC 450 machinery in the 2020 ACU British Motocross Championship and MX Nationals.
Following a successful debut in the MX1 class of the 2019 Maxxis British Championships, Mel Pocock will remain with the team for 2020 and will compete on the FC 450 machine. Pocock has already seen success with Husqvarna Motorcycles in 2018 when he finished third overall in the MX2 class of the British championship while also delivering a second-place in the very competitive EMX250 class.
Pocock will be riding an ASA United Husqvarna Motorcycles FE 450 at Weston Beach Race this weekend before the team plans an intense programme of winter training ahead of the 2020 season. The team will be based on the promenade and fans are encouraged to see the team in action over the spectacular weekend.
Further rider announcements for the ASA United Husqvarna team will be made in due course.
Managing Director at Husqvarna Motorcycles UK Matt Walker: “At Husqvarna Motorcycles we’ve been impressed with the level of professionalism shown by Lee and his team throughout 2019, so offering support to the ASA United team was a logical and easy decision to make. Mel’s track record speaks for itself and it’s great to see the partnership in action straight away at the Weston Beach Race – we wish the team the best of luck for Weston and the 2020 season.”
Team principal Lee Tolan: “I would like to thank Husqvarna Motorcycles UK for giving me this opportunity, we have big plans for 2020 and look forward to this partnership. Our riders will be Mel Pocock and a further MX2 rider, which will be confirmed shortly. We will be competing in the Maxxis British Motocross Championship and MX Nationals, with the view to doing some European rounds with both riders.”
