The Husqvarna Racing Team featuring Todd Waters has unveiled its look for the 2021 Australian ProMX Championship and Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), both of which are scheduled to take-off this month.
Waters is the reigning national MX1 champion after capturing the title in 2019. He didn't get a chance to defend that crown in 2020 due to the series cancellation, however, a string of impressive state-based results have him in the box-seat to carry momentum into his upcoming campaign beginning this Sunday, 11 April, at Wonthaggi, VIC.
After trying his hand at AORC one year ago and immediately finding success by finishing third in the shortened championship, 30-year-old Waters will once again pull double-duty in 2021 by adding off-road to his agenda alongside his ProMX intentions. The postponed AORC series will now commence on 17-18 April at Victoria's Golden Beach.
Waters will be equipped with a Husqvarna Racing Team FC 450 in his motocross endeavours this season, while entering an FE 450 in enduro events. He's proven to swiftly adapt between the pair of disciplines, showcasing his capabilities at the highest of levels nationally.
In addition, 25-year-old Dylan Wills will join the Husqvarna Racing Team in the Australian Supercross Championship during the latter stages of the year, plus Callum Norton will lead the brand's desert program when the Finke Desert Race returns over the June long weekend.
Todd Waters: "After having a break for over 12 months in terms of national events, I'm super-excited to get out there and go racing again. We've done some pre-season races, which have gone well, and I feel really good. I'm comfortable with Husqvarna, am familiar with the bikes - both the FC 450 and FE 450 - and surroundings, so look forward to both the ProMX and AORC series in 2021. In motocross, to be able to defend the number one plate in motocross is the aim, but at the same time I will be going to do my best every race weekend as I always have done. Same with AORC, we got some experience there last year and to be a part of the official off-road program will be a good opportunity for me as well, so hopefully we can deliver the results to match and have a good year all-round."
