Pela Renet Welcomed as Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Rally Team Coordinator

Following his retirement from competitive racing due to injuries sustained at the Atacama Rally in August 2017, Renet will remain with Husqvarna Factory Racing to assist the team in their next Cross Country Rally world championship and Dakar campaign.

Rockstar Energy and Husqvarna Factory Racing are pleased to announce the appointment of Pela Renet as their new Rally Team Coordinator.
Following his retirement from competitive racing due to injuries sustained at the Atacama Rally in August 2017, Renet will remain with Husqvarna Factory Racing to assist the team in their next Cross Country Rally world championship and Dakar campaign.
Renet enjoyed a varied and very successful career in motorcycle racing. His first world title came in 2009 where he was crowned FIM MX3 World Champion. Renet then switched to enduro, where he won several French championships as well as clinching two world titles in 2012 and 2014.
A change to rally in 2015, Renet raced the Dakar Rally for the first time. Displaying great speed and skill on his Husqvarna rally machine, he finished seventh in 2017 at the Dakar – his best result at the event.
“I am honored to be appointed as Team Coordinator to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team,” Renet said. “My results over the years would not have been possible without the backing of a great team behind me and to be able to give something back by sharing my knowledge and experience is a real privilege. I look forward to continue working with Husqvarna and hope to claim even more victories together.”
