Husqvarna Racing

Off-road racing legend Larry Roeseler is now back in the saddle with Husqvarna, the motorcycle brand that’s as iconic as he is. The 10-time SCORE Baja 1000 winner may be racing trucks these days, but he still spends plenty of time on riding and racing motorcycles, and now when he does it will be on a Husky.

With 10 SCORE Baja 1000 wins and 10 ISDE gold medals under his belt, Larry Roeseler is one of the most revered figures in off-road. He spent a good portion of his career on Husqvarnas, and the Italian manufacturer is now thrilled to welcome him back to the family.

With the support of Paul Lima of GP Cycles in San Diego, “LR” recently received his new motorcycles, and in only a few weeks time, he’s already back to racing Baja on a Husky!

Larry Roseseler says: “The first place I rode my TXC511 was in Baja at the Mexican 1000. The 511 ran great the whole time. A thousand miles later, I came back home, changed the oil and put some fresh tires on it and went to a local GP where I almost lapped the field. So far this bike’s been awesome, and it’s the buzz of the pits wherever I go.

“People are just amazed by the features and the innovative design of the bikes and I have a lot of people coming up to me asking questions. I’m really excited to be a part of Husqvarna again. They’ve been a big part of my race career. Now they’re not just in my past but in my future, too.”

Corey Eastman (Husqvarna National Marketing Manager) says: “It’s great having a rider of Larry’s caliber represent us. He’s exactly the kind of guy you want out at the races talking to people about the bikes. He’s excited about where Husqvarna is headed, and so are we, so we’re happy to support his motorcycle riding and racing.”
