The British rider has been in the form of his life, most recently securing a third at Erzberg and his fifth career Romaniacs title. Currently aged 41, Jarvis will remain with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Racing Extreme Enduro team through the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

It’s fantastic that I’m going to race with Husqvarna for another two years,” Jarvis exclaimed. “The new TE 300 is an amazing machine. I’ve been racing it for a few months and already I’ve earned two major wins on it – Erzberg and Romaniacs. Within Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing I feel like I’m part of a global team. My focus is on the big outdoor extreme enduro events, while I’ll also be trying to squeeze in as many other races as possible. I feel like I’m in the best place right now and I’m looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.” 

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Team manger, Andreas Hölzl is excited with the new deal and the ability for Jarvis to continue competing at the most extreme events in the world.

We’re excited to renew our contract with Graham for another two seasons,” Hölzl said. “He will continue racing our team’s TE 300 in the biggest extreme enduro events worldwide. Carrying a huge amount of experience in extreme enduro racing, Graham is still very fast compared to many of the younger riders, which he proved that this year at both Erzberg and Romaniacs. With Graham age really is just a number. I think Graham has a lot more to give and will continue to surprise us with his performances in the future.” 

Jarvis will now focus on the Battle of Vikings enduro in Sweden before heading to the States for the 2016 Tennessee Knock Out extreme enduro event.
