Three-time Australian Superbike champion Troy Herfoss has been drafted in to replace the injured Cameron Beaubier in MotoAmerica, landing a Superbike opportunity after making a major impact as King of the Baggers points leader.

Herfoss, 37, signed with Indian Motorcycle to ride in the US for 2024 across the King of the Baggers and Super Hooligans series, which he will continue in addition to joining the Tytlers Cycle Racing BMW team.

“First and foremost I would like to wish Cam the best recovery possible,” Herfoss commented. “He is a true champion in our sport, and it is an honour to ride his bike. I want to thank both Michael Kiley and the team at Tytler’s Cycle Racing and Gary Gray of Indian Motorcycles for allowing me this opportunity.

“It has been a dream of mine to race in MotoAmerica and this year has been so much fun. I have an enormous itch that needs scratching around MotoAmerica and Superbikes, and although it will be a challenging weekend, I am sure a rewarding one as well.”

Herfoss will debut at Brainerd next weekend and then is expected to line up once again at The Ridge Motorsports Park between June 28-30. After winning his ASBK titles with Honda and contesting a partial season with DesmoSport Ducati in 2024, he will now be equipped with a BMW M 1000 RR in MotoAmerica.
