Husqvarna Factory Racing
Rally riding is one of the toughest and more extreme disciplines of motorcycle sport. Bold and adventurous competitors spend long hours on the bike in hostile terrain, negotiating the ground at speed while navigating their course. The most celebrated of the international events has to be the Dakar Rally held every January, a fearsome challenge for riders and machines and eagerly anticipated by sports fans globally.
Of course, where there’s such a challenge you will find Husqvarna Motorcycles, which has consolidated its position as a dominant force in all offroad racing activities since the introduction of the global Husqvarna Factory Racing team in 2015.
Husqvarna Motorcycles has further strengthened its rally challenge with the signing of Skyler Howes to the Husqvarna Factory Racing team. Exceptional rides in both the 2020 and 2021 Dakar Rally saw the Utah resident finish inside the top 10 and as leading privateer – the highlight being an impressive fifth overall at 2021 event. Skyler will be lining up with Luciano Benavides at the 2022 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship and 2023 Dakar Rally.
