No America for Brian Hsu – signs Husqvarna deal!
It had been thought that Brian Hsu would be heading to America for the 2017 season after he left the World Suzuki team. However, a move to America never happened and he has now signed a deal with the Maurer Husqvarna racing team.
He will contest in the ADAC German Championship and the European rounds of the MX2 World Championship. After leaving Suzuki and not getting a ride in the USA like he initially planned this is a pretty good ride and it will be cool to see a new team compete in the World series.
Hopefully this year he can get a full off-season in after a wrist injury before his rookie year in the class meant he missed a big chunk of the 2016 season. With a full winter hopefully we can see a much better Brian Hsu in 2017 even if it is just for the European rounds of the World Championship.
Brian Hsu: ”Now I’m happy and excited to join the Husqvarna Maurer Racing Team. It’s a fresh start for me and I think it is a great opportunity. I’m very excited to work with the new crew. I am grateful and I will do my very best to make the most of it. I would like to thank for the support of Husqvarna, FOX, Canella, Ortema, ADAC Stiftung Sport.”
