The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team earned both the 250 East and 450 class Monster Energy Supercross Championships, but now, all its star riders are out with injuries. First it was Dean Wilson, then Jason Anderson last week, and now Zach Osborne. “Filthy” Phil Nicoletti, or perhaps more appropriately these days, “Fill-In” Phil, will come aboard the Husky team to ride while the other racers recover. It’s too bad both Anderson and Osborne won’t be able to race, coming off such great results so far this year. That’s racing for ya…

The disappointment of this announcement comes after Osborne was involved in a first turn pile-up during the start of Moto Two at the Thunder Valley National this past weekend in Lakewood, Colorado.

We expect Osborne to make a successful recovery and cannot wait to see him back on the track!

I am excited to get my recovery started and move onto the next step of my career!”
