Round one of the 2018 Australian Supercross Championship rolls into Jimboomba, Qld, this Saturday, and the DPH Motorsport Factory Husqvarna Racing Team is ready to hit the track. Aboard brand new 2019 Husqvarna FC250s, both Dylan Wills and Hayden Mellross have been extensively testing with the team to ensure they’ve left no stone unturned in their preparation for the gate to drop

Dale Hocking, DPH Husqvarna team owner: “The race bikes are packed and the truck is on its way to Jimboomba for round one. It’s no secret that I love supercross; our entire DPH crew does. The excitement, the crowd, the spectacle and the close racing. I know that both Dylan and Hayden are motivated more than ever to do well and they’ve been working hard to ensure they are prepared for whatever is thrown at them come Saturday. I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Jarrod and Boyd for their work behind the scenes to get things ready, along with all our partners. If it wasn’t for your support, we simply couldn’t go racing, so thank you.”

Hayden Mellross“I’ve been home for two weeks now and it’s been great. Seeing my family and friends and riding in my own backyard, doing what I love. I’m lucky to be in the position I am, with great support with market-leading brands and products around me and a solid opportunity to succeed, so I’m working hard to give back to everyone that’s behind the team and myself when that gate drops.”

Dylan Wills“I can’t wait for Saturday to get here! I’ve been testing, practising and training for several weeks now, and I want to go racing! The FC250 is a great bike, and, paired with products from all our sponsors including Dunlop, WP,  Motorex, Topline, Vortex, VP Racing,  Unifilter, Neken and NGK, it really lifts the bar even further. This bike is easily the best equipment I’ve ever had, so I’m looking forward to laying it all out there on the track.”
