For those who follow the international hard enduro series, the name Graham Jarvis should ring a bell. The multiple champion has become a legend in the field.
Sometimes, enduro riders call someone a “Jarvis” if a rider has proven to be very good at tackling the very difficult sections on the trail, the same was anyone is called the "Michael Jordan” of any other field.
Just recently, this hard enduro racing legend has fulfilled a lifelong dream of having his own racing team, bearing his own name.
“Starting my own race team gives me another opportunity to be active in the sport and hopefully develop the champions of the future which would give me as great a sense of achievement as anything to date,” said Jarvis.
The Jarvis Husqvarna Racing Team has secured some of the most exciting and promising young riders: Bulgaria’s Teodor Kabakchiev; the English trio of Jono Richardson, Will Hoare, and Sam Winterburn; and experienced Welsh rider Grant Churchward. All riders will compete aboard Husqvarna TE 300i enduro bikes.
Graham Jarvis, who’s turning 46 this April, is showing no signs of slowing down. Besides focusing on his newly set up team of young guns, he will continue to race in FIM’s 8-round hard enduro series and other hard enduro competitions around the world with Husqvarna.
“This would give me a great sense of achievement, as much as anything I’ve done to date. Husqvarna Motorcycles has been incredibly supportive in this venture and we hope to repay that support with some great performances. Like everyone, I’m hoping that life, and racing, will return to normal very soon, and I look forward to getting back to competition,” added Jarvis.
