Max Nagl currently sits third place in the MXGP class following 14 top three moto finishes. With only four rounds left to race the Husqvarna rider will be looking to finish on the podium, end the season on a high and give back to the team for rewarding him with a new contract.

“I’ve enjoyed some of the most successful times of my career as an MXGP rider with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team so to be staying with Husqvarna, Antti [Pyrhönen] and the guys is something I’m really very pleased about. I think that we’ve showed what we’re capable of as a team and enjoyed lots of very positive GPs during both this year and in 2015,” Nagl commented.

Although I’m now one of the most experienced riders in the MXGP class, I truly believe that I can be every bit as competitive next year as I am right now. Continuing to be a part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team is something I’m very excited about.”

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager Antti Pyrhönen is extremely pleased with the news and confident in Nagl’s ability to push on for a world MXGP title.

“Continuing to work with Max is something I’m extremely pleased about,” said Pyrhönen. Together we’ve experienced so much during the last 18 months, with Max showing enormous amounts of professionalism at all times. In recent GPs he has shown what he is really capable of. Everyone knows just how fast and talented a rider he is and I believe that next year he will again be a regular podium finisher, challenging for GP wins and the MXGP title.”
