Dietrich shows off his CH Racing Husqvarna TE250.
Ricky Dietrich and the Husqvarna CH Racing team are ready to get their feet wet in the 2012 season, starting this weekend with the Husqvarna ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship (BSEC) in Aldershot, Hampshire. The American off-road-turned-motocross rider made a quiet transition to the European race scene at the end of 2011, and is now ready to dive into the 2012 season with the factory Husqvarna CH Racing team.
The BESC is one of the three championships on the 2012 calendar for Dietrich. The 2008 AMA EnduroCross champion and AMA Racing Athlete of the Year will also be contesting the Italian Motocross Championship and most importantly, the prestigious FIM World Enduro Championship, where he will ride the Husqvarna TE250 in the E1 division.
Now an official member of Husqvarna's factory CH
Racing team, Ricky Dietrich is ready to take on the
British Spring Enduro Championship this weekend.
"The Enduro Sprint Series is going to be a good warm-up for the World Enduros," Dietrich said. "It's basically like a World Enduro format but shorter. It's more just about doing the special tests. David Knight and a few other top guys are racing the series so it's a good way to judge my speed and fitness coming into the World Enduros."
