Caleb Ward:”I’m super excited to be racing for the 8biano Racing team in 2017, it’s been a goal and dream of mine to race the World Championships so I’m really stoked that I’ve been given the opportunity to do it. I’m really looking forward to getting over to Europe and experiencing everything and riding the new Husqvarna. I’ve ridden KTM’s for a long time and I think the Husky will be quite similar so it should be an easy transition. I’m also keen to ride all new tracks and to be racing different riders for the first time which will be really cool, I’m sure it’s going to be a huge learning curve but I can’t wait!”.
