More news coming from the Austria group. After the announcement of two years extension of Justin Barcia with GasGas TLD, now the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Team has secured the services of RJ Hampshire for at least two more seasons until 2025.

Hampshire entered the team in 2020 and since that, he has been quite consistent with some good results and a couple of wins in both the AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross series. According to the team, Hampshire will remain in the 250 class for another two years despite the successful debut in the 450SX he had at Daytona. Husqvarna hasn´t won a championship in the small-bore class since Zach Osborne in 2017, and all the bets to conquer another title still rely on Hampshire´s talent.

Next words are form the press release of Husqvarna:

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing and RJ Hampshire will continue together for the next two seasons of the SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX), inclusive of the 2024 and 2025 AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross series.

Hampshire has signed to remain onboard the Husqvarna FC 250 for the duration of this latest contract extension. The 27-year-old first joined Rockstar Energy Husqvarna in 2020, impressing to date within the program to score three Pro Motocross 250MX overall wins, a 250SX Main Event victory, and multiple podium finishes across both championships.

Despite battling various physical setbacks in the opening rounds of 250SX West this season, Hampshire holds second position in the standings as he looks to complete the remaining rounds in the best possible way. He also stepped up to the FC 450 at the Daytona Supercross, winning his Heat race on debut and finishing eighth in the Main Event.

“I couldn’t be happier to be signed with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing for another two years,” commented Hampshire. “It’s truly a blessing to have a team that believes in me as much as I believe in myself. We’ve continued to make progress year after year and we all strive to be the best we can be. I look forward to getting the Husqvarna FC 250 back on the top step for years to come.”
