Husqvarna and GasGas also partner FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross

Husqvarna PR: 

Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to be partnering with an exciting new motocross series in 2021 – the FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross Championship. Created in conjunction with InFront Moto Racing, this ground-breaking five-round series will endorse e-powered motorsport and showcase the capabilities of e-technology to a global audience.

As pioneers of electric mobility, Husqvarna Motorcycles’ EE 5 represents the brand’s vision for the future. First unveiled to the public in late 2018 following many years of testing and development, the revolutionary EE 5 was added to the motocross line-up for MY20, changing the face of junior motocross and marking the first step into e-mobility for Husqvarna Motorcycles.

The FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross Championship creates a truly unique opportunity for aspiring young racers to develop their talents. Competing on the same circuits as their MXGP heroes with a racing format that mirrors the FIM Motocross World Championship, up to 40 competitors will contest two motos at each round with the series. Should the championship winner be a Husqvarna rider, the lucky individual will get the chance to spend time with one of our Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teams, at the end of the season. Additionally, all Husqvarna EE 5 mounted competitors will receive branded wear including a t-shirt, cap, umbrella, drink bottle and pit board.

As one of the first motorcycle manufacturers to develop true-performance, electric-powered motocross models, Husqvarna Motorcycles remains fully committed to e-mobility development and supports the introduction of this new FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross Championship series. Open to competitors aged 6-8 years old who ride EE 5 machinery, the championship allows for the innovative machine to be used within an FIM recognised series for the very first time.

Kicking off in Italy in September at the biggest motocross race in the world, the FIM Motocross of Nations, the remaining events will take place alongside four FIM Motocross World Championship rounds across Europe with the champion set to be crowned in Portugal on October 24. To compete for the FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross Championship title riders must compete in a minimum of three rounds.

Federico Valentini – Husqvarna Motorcycles Head of Global Marketing: “There is no questioning the fact that electric mobility is becoming an ever-present reality. And that motorcycle sport as we know it is starting to evolve. This electric-powered future is hugely important to Husqvarna Motorcycles. The FIM Europe Junior e-Motocross Championship is a key step towards highlighting that a cleaner, all-electric future is an exciting one, and we truly believe this series will shine a very positive light on the capabilities of our Husqvarna EE 5.”

With 40 spaces available on each start gate, places are limited, so we’d suggest getting your entries in quickly! Open to all racers who compete on our MC-E 5 and are aged between six and eight years old, we’ve no doubt that the series will be a battle for youth superiority throughout the inaugural season! So that no one goes away empty handed, all riders on GASGAS bikes will receive exclusive GASGAS pit wear including a t-shirt, cap, umbrella, and an all-important pit board!

With each stop of the tour taking place on the very same day as the FIM Motocross World Championship, every event is guaranteed to be truly spectacular. Just like in the pro classes, each round will be played out over two points-paying races with the championship winner walking away with a seriously cool prize – the chance to spend time, hang out, train and ride with one of our GASGAS Factory Racing teams.

It’s going to be awesome, and we can’t wait to see some of the best young riders in the world racing around some of the finest motocross tracks in Europe on our all-electric MC-E 5.

The series opener in September will take place in front of a huge motocross audience, at the FIM Motocross of Nations in Italy! The four remaining rounds follow in quick succession with visits to Germany, France, Spain, with the season finale scheduled for October 24 in Portugal. But if committing to all five events isn’t possible, riders can opt to compete in any three rounds of the series.

Federico Valentini – GASGAS Head of Global Marketing: “For GASGAS to be supporting a forward-looking motocross championship that gives young, up-and-coming racers the opportunity to compete on some of the world’s best tracks during MXGP weekends is something very special. The fact that this same new championship is all-electric and allows our MC-E 5 riders to compete in an FIM-sanctioned European series, that makes it even more positive. But what’s really exciting for GASGAS is the fact that this is an all-electric championship. Taking positive strides to establish cleaner, more sustainable forms of racing, on bikes that are so much fun to ride, is hugely important for all of us. We can’t wait to watch our MC-E 5 riders doing battle throughout the series.”
