FC 450 puts Osbourne on the podium in Geneva

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osbourne claimed 3rd place on the first night of supercross racing in Switzerland.

Following his strong third overall result two weeks ago at the Supercross de Paris, Osborne landed in Geneva looking to gain some more race time aboard his FC 450 ROCKSTAR EDITION machine.

Getting off to a strong start on Friday, the American topped the first qualifying session on the first day of racing at the Palexpo arena.

Getting a good start in the final moto on Friday, Zach took the lead during lap three and stayed ahead for a large part of the race. Suffering a fall a few corners before the drop of the flag, he had to settle for a strong third place result.

Posting the second best time on Saturday’s qualifying session, Zach was looking to finish even higher on the second night of racing in Geneva. Getting a good start in the final moto, Osborne suffered a fall in the first corner and was unable to continue the race.
