Husqvarna Motorcycles to Extend Contract with Billy Bolt

Kicking off the championship with an impressive victory at Extreme XL Lagares, Bolt is the highest-placed Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team rider.

Husqvarna Motorcycles announced the signing of a new three-year contract between Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing and enduro star Billy Bolt, which sees the young British racer continuing to compete with the team until at least the end of the 2021 season.

Enjoying a solid season of World Enduro Super Series competition, Bolt sits third in the series provisional standings. Kicking off the championship with an impressive victory at Extreme XL Lagares, Bolt is the highest-placed Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team rider at the halfway mark in the inaugural WESS championship.

At just 21 years of age, Bolt is arguably one of the most promising talents in the global outdoor and indoor enduro racing scene. Together with his impressive results in the ongoing WESS series, in 2018 Boltalso secured his debut SuperEnduro victory in Sweden to become the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship runner-up.

“I’m really happy to renew my contract with Husqvarna for an additional three years. I’m in a great place right now and I am confident the team can provide all that’s needed to take my career to the next level,” Bolt said. “Extending my contract like this gives me the security and stability to continue improving in the future. The atmosphere within the team is one of the best in the paddock, which is a huge part of why I’m so pleased to be continuing with them. I feel fortunate to be part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team and I’m super motivated to continue giving my best.”
