CH Racing Husqvarna’s new signing Ricky Dietrich will compete in the 2012 ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship.
With the opening two rounds of the 2012 Husqvarna ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship rapidly approaching American off-road racer Ricky Dietrich has confirmed his participation in the series, which starts in Aldershot, Hampshire on February 11/12.
Recently signing to race for the Italian Husqvarna CH Racing Monster Energy team where he will contest the entire Enduro World Championship, Dietrich’s decision to also compete in the Elite class of the BSEC series injects further excitement into an already hotly contested championship. Formerly residing in California, Dietrich is one of the State’s top off-road racers having won titles in both the AMA Endurocross and AMA WORCS series.
In 2011 Dietrich switched disciplines to compete in the AMA National Motocross championship finishing 14th overall – his season best result coming at round two in Texas where he claimed a superb fifth place. A rider with an excellent pedigree in both enduro and motocross, Dietrich is certain to prove a welcome addition to the 2012 BSEC series.
Ricky Dietrich: ‘I’m excited to be competing in the British Sprint Enduro Championship for Husqvarna. I’ve heard many good things about this series and feel that it will be perfect preparation for the Enduro World Championship. It will give me the opportunity to put in some real special test training under race conditions. My experience in enduro racing is limited but I’m keen to learn and I feel the BSEC will be the perfect place to do that.’
‘The championship has attracted a lot of talented riders so getting to compete against the top UK talent will give me a good indication of where both my speed and fitness is at. It will also be my first experience of the UK so I’m excited to see a little of the country, meet some new people, and maybe try out an English breakfasts I’ve heard about!’
