PRESS RELEASE: POWAY, CA (DECEMBER 30, 2014) – Thor MX is excited to announce the signing of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson for the 2015 SX and MX season. Jason is coming off a Championship season that saw him clinch the 2014 AMA 250 Supercross West Title.


The addition of Jason to the Thor team provides a great opportunity for Husky and Thor to re-ignite their relationship from the early years of motocross in America with Thor’s founder Torsten Hallman. Torsten was instrumental in the introduction of the Husqvarna brand to American motocross fans, and now Jason has that same opportunity.


We’re looking forward to big things from Jason as he moves up the ladder to the premier 450 class for Supercross and Motocross this season and we are excited to be reunited with Husqvarna Factory Racing.

Tickle was moving up the ladder last season in Supercross before an injury sustained in practice at the Toronto Supercross put an early end to his season. Now fully recovered and motivated to get back to racing, 

“I’m really excited to be back with Thor and looking forward to a breakout year with RCH Factory Racing” stated Broc during a recent visit to the Thor offices in Poway.
