Former Australasian Freestyle Motocross (FMX) Champion and star Crusty Demons tour rider Kain Saul has made the switch to ride Husqvarna motorcycles in the upcoming ‘Thirst for Destruction Tour’
25-year-old Saul became an integral part of the Crusty Demons worldwide brand since becoming the first to land a backflip on a 225 kilogram Harley-Davidson motorcycle almost a year ago, however the Queenslander from Gladstone has been riding with the group for over five years.
The move to Husqvarna, makes Saul the first Australian FMX’er to represent the brand, a job he takes very seriously.
“Being the first to represent Husqvarna in FMX is really important to me,” Saul explained. “At first my plan was just to have a ride of the all new TC 250 and see how it felt, but almost straight away I felt right at home and knew I would have no problem adjusting in time for the Crusty Tour.”
Known for having some of the biggest tricks in FMX, Saul has already mastered some of his best within days of boarding his you machine, proving the new machine is up to the task. Weighing in at just 92kg and having bee completely redesigned for 2010, the Husqvarna range of motocross bikes are one of the industry’s big movers.
The Crusty Demons ‘Thirst for Destruction’ Tour kicks off on 16 October at Perth’s Burswood Dome. For tickets and more info go to www.crusty.com.
