JONASS, JASIKONIS, KJER OLSEN AND BEATON WELL-PREPARED FOR 2020 MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OPENER

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Pauls Jonass, Arminas Jasikonis, Thomas Kjer Olsen and Jed Beaton are all set for the much-anticipated opening round of the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship, the MXGP of Great Britain that takes place this weekend, March 1.


Following months of preparation, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna's official MXGP and MX2 class riders will finally begin their championship campaigns, with the world championship series kicking off in Europe for the first time since 2012.



In the MX2 class, Thomas Kjer Olsen starts the season focused on the MX2 title, despite a recent injury that has forced him to take some time out from riding. Championship runner-up in 2019 with one GP victory and three race wins, the Dane has been a constant podium-threat throughout his time in the MX2 division. With 2020 marking Kjer Olsen's final year in the MX2 category due to the under-23 age limit rule, the FC 250 rider is looking for a strong start to his year at Matterley Basin.


Rasmus Jorgensen – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 Team Manager: "The entire team has been working extremely hard all winter long, and we can all feel the excitement to get this season underway. The riders are all really pleased with their FC 250 machines, and I am confident they all have a great base set-up on their bikes. Thomas is obviously coming in a little on the back foot after spending five weeks off the bike. It's important for him to stay calm, take what he can from the early GPs and look at the bigger picture. After finishing second in the championship last season he is really motivated. Jed is in really good shape and has made great improvements over the winter. It's a long season and he needs to stay consistent. Our EMX250 rider Kay De Wolf will join us in Valkenswaard for his EMX250 debut after making the transition to the FC 250 over the winter. We're fully prepared and looking forward to getting the racing season underway."
