HUSQVARNA SIGNS SECOND 250 RIDER FOR 2014 TEAM
Martens and Tonkov.
Jacky Martens’ 2014 Husqvarna team, officially known as Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing, has signed a three-year contract with Russian rider Aleksandr Tonkov. Tonkov is best known for holding the throttle wide open and crashing into the finish line arch earlier this season in Italy. Tonkov will join Romain Febvre as Husky’s official 250 GP team. Kimi Raikonnen’s Ice 1 Racing will run the 450 team.
Jacky Martens said, ”With Aleksandr and Romain Febvre we have two talented riders who are able to fight for podium positions. Both riders have shown great things this season, but due injury they have lost a lot of points. The team will give both riders a better structure so they are able to grow in the right way.”
