Rider change for Norway MXoN squad – Fredriksen drafted in

Håkon Østerhagen has to sit out the Motocross of Nations ( MXoN ) due to injury. Østerhagen will be replaced by Håkon Fredriksen.

Unfortunately, Østerhagen has suffered a serious injury again. But on the positive side, Håkon Fredriksen is now ready to start. After being out of competition for a long period due to injury, Fredriksen is back in impressive form and highly motivated for the challenge ahead. He will compete in the MX Open class on a Yamaha 450. Fredriksen has previous experience from the Motocross of Nations (MXoN) in 2019, which was his breakthrough in an international context. We look forward to an exciting weekend in France, writes trainer Espen Blikstad.

The Norwegian team, with Cornelius Tøndel, Kevin Horgmo and Håkon Fredriksen, is ready to participate in the Motocross of Nations (MXoN) 2023. The event will take place on October 6, 7 and 8 in Ernée, France.
