HUSQVARNA'S ANDY JEFFERSON TRANSITIONS INTO NEW ROLE AS MEDIA RELATIONS MANAGER
Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to welcome Timmy Weigand to the North American team as Off-Road Racing Manager! The 4-time Baja Champion brings a wealth of racing knowledge and championship-winning experience to Husqvarna, and is looking forward to overseeing the iconic brand's US off-road racing efforts.
"I am excited to say the least," Weigand said. "This is a great opportunity to work with a legendary brand and a great team. I am looking forward to working with Mike Brown and National Enduro Champion Andrew DeLong, who will both be continuing with Husqvarna in 2015.
Cory Buttrick will be back with Beta USA for the 2015 season. According to Beta USA, Buttrick will attend the first few GNCCs on a Factory Beta 430 RR and then complete the entire National Enduro Series aboard a Factory Beta 300 RR.
In 2014, Buttrick, an Ohio native, rode his first year aboard Beta and successfully finished 10th overall in the National Enduro Series, despite an injury mid-way through the year. Buttrick finished as high as 6th overall and hopes to be a consistent top five rider in 2015.
Buttrick, who has come back from injury this year, is ecstatic about the 2015 season. "I'm very excited to be returning to Beta for next year, as it will give me another opportunity to prove what these bikes can do, along with myself. We already have a major head start for 2015, and with a healthy winter we should have ourselves set up for a great season. I can't thank the whole Beta USA team enough for their effort and continued faith in me."
"It is good to have Cory back on the team for next season,” said Tim Pilg, Beta USA Marketing Manager. “I feel he is just beginning to get his speed back and there are many good things to come for Cory and Beta. He knows what it takes to win and we will make sure his bikes are solid so he can reach his goals."
Buttrick will line up for the first National Enduro of 2015 on February 1st.
