Anderson and Pourcel Extend Contracts

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing is
pleased to announce the extension of Jason Anderson’s contract through 2018.  His proven ability during his 450 rookie
season was highlighted with continued successes in Supercross, as well as AMA
Pro Motocross Championship Series. “I’m very excited about this opportunity
with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team”, said Jason. “To have my deal go
through 2018 makes it easy for me to focus on the goal of delivering results,
and nothing else,” he continued.


Anderson has contributed to the thriving team
dynamic and overall success of the team. Team Manager, Bobby Hewitt, speaks
highly of Anderson, stating “Jason and I have built a great working
relationship and we feel the same way about what we want to accomplish together.”


Rockstar Energy’s Marketing Director, Mike
Kelso, shares his excitement, “I couldn’t be happier that I get to watch my
longtime friend and Rockstar Energy athlete, Jason Anderson, continue to
carry the Rockstar flag into the future.”


In addition, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory
Racing is equally as excited to announce the contract extension of the team’s
newest member, Christophe Pourcel, through 2017. Husqvarna Head of
Motorsports, Robert Jonas explained, “Having Christophe compete alongside Jason
in Supercross is an important step forward. Christophe is a highly skilled
racer, with championship winning experience to match.”   


Since signing with the team in April 2015,
Pourcel has challenged the top contenders and has had close battles, even landing
on the podium. His time off proved not to be a factor as he makes a strong
comeback to the world of motocross. “I truly believe he has found his home
with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing,” said Bobby Hewitt.  “Christophe Pourcel has not only proven to
be a team asset on the track, but has also become an intricate part of the
overall positive team personality at Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory
Racing,” commented Mike Kelso.


Christophe, enthusiastic, stated “I’m really
excited to continue with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team
and look forward to starting my 450 Supercross career. I am also looking
forward to racing the new 2016 Husqvarna Motorcycles and bringing even more
success to the brand and team.”      


“Continuing to work with both Christophe
Pourcel and Jason Anderson throughout the 2016 Supercross and Motocross
season is something Husqvarna is very pleased about. Both riders delivered
some great results during the 2015 450 motocross championship. With the support
of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team, we have big hopes for
what Christophe and Jason will achieve next season,” Robert Jonas elaborated.


At the conclusion of the 2015 AMA Pro
Motocross season, Pourcel finished 5th in points and Anderson 6th
in points. Both riders will transition to the newly redesigned model year
2016 Husqvarna FC 450 and prepare to battle the field at the MXGP of USA, to
be held at Glen Helen Raceway on September 20th, 2015.
