The inaugural SMX Riders’ Cup continues to gather pace around the world, especially following a pair of massive announces that were made at the recent MXGP of Switzerland. Husqvarna were one of the manufacturers to reveal their team and that a pair of Talon riders, Jason Anderson and Zach Osborne, will be making the trip to Germany.
The event is expected to mark a return to racing for Jason Anderson, who is currently sat on the sidelines after sustained a broken collarbone at the beginning of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series. Zach Osborne, on the other hand, will be looking to carry the momentum gained in recent weeks into the Veltins Arena. Osborne currently sits sixth in the 250MX standings in the United States with three rounds remaining.
