The Husqvarna Racing Team had a dream start to the 2024 Cross Country racing season, winning both the Open and OR3 classes at Rocky Bay in Kwa-Zulu Natal this past weekend.

Cocker, who claimed the OR2 championship in 2023 season took to the Open Class with confidence and had a golden day in the saddle finishing 1st in his class and bagging the overall win for the day!

Cocker commented on the day saying, “This was an amazing race! It was close out there, but I dug deep and grabbed the win in both my class and overall. The track was rough, but the team’s support and my Husqvarna FX350 made all the difference.”
In the OR3 class, young gun Luke Walker wasn’t fazed by the competition. He rode his FC250 to victory in OR3 and an impressive third place overall, adding another win to Husqvarna’s fantastic day.

Walker commented, “I had a blast racing and a great day out. Managed to finish fourth in the time trial which helped me a lot in the main race with the dust. I managed to get out of the dust for most of the race and pull a gap on the rest of the guys in my class.”
He continued to say, “The track had some tricky bits, but my FC250 handled it perfectly and I am extremely happy to start my season off with a win and to put the Husqvarna brand on top!”

Megan Prinsloo, Husqvarna’s Marketing Coordinator commented, “We are very proud of both rider’s performances this weekend and looking forward to a strong season ahead for Husqvarna Racing”.
