Husqvarna will be offering a Husqvarna Service Package for riders and teams in the classic annual event, which is the oldest off-road competition on the official FIM motorsports calendar. The Husqvarna Service Package is designed to support riders with Husqvarna rental bikes, race service, spare parts and expert advice. The Service Package is a strong alternative as it may alleviate some of the organizational stresses faced by riders not supported by factory teams or huge sponsors, allowing the riders to focus on their racing.
Only a limited number of Husqvarna Service Packages are available though, and interested are encouraged to contact Husqvarna Motorcycles official dealers and apply as soon as possible using the application forms attached to this document.

About the ISDE
Often reffered to as the “Olympics of motorcycle racing,” the ISDE was first held in Carlisle, England in 1913, just 10 years after Husqvarna produced its very first “motorized bicycle,” and the event celebrated its centenary edition in Sardinia, Italy, last year. The ISDE pits riders and national teams against each other for six days of brutal off-road competition. National teams compete for the coveted World- and Junior Trophies and hobby racers have the unique opportunity to ride in the same conditions and on the same track as the sport’s elite.
Team France were the champions of the 2013 ISDE, with Team USA second and Team Italy third. Some 500 riders from 40 countries have already registered for the 2014 event.
