Well, it's not exactly "news" as the deal was sealed back in September, and we knew about it before it happened, but Husqvarna has now officially announced that their entire range of official teams will welcome Rockstar as title sponsor in 2016 in a worldwide marketing strategy. For Max Anstie it is a return to Rockstar as he raced in their colours already in 2013 with Suzuki; the biggest upheaval has to be faced by Max Nagl, who, after a year back at Red Bull with IceOne after two years with HRC, will now again miss the support of the Austrian training centre.

LAST MAN STANDING<br />
   ... Valentin Guillod & Standing Construct go their separate ways

Valentin Guillod & Standing Construct have split up before their MXGP collaboration has even started. After finishing 4th in MX2 this summer, the 23 year old Swiss and the Belgian team signed to continue their association into MXGP in 2016, but differences over winter preparation has been them go their separate ways. Guillod: "Recently the team wished to change our organization, my winter preparation and wanted to impose things that we had not discussed previously and which does not suit me. We therefore prefer to separate now, and we work to find a solution for next season with Yamaha. I am confident, and continues to prepare myself for the Genoa Supercross, Lille and Geneva that I would argue on a very good 450 Yamaha. I think that roll in Supercross can only be positive for a motocross driver, these two disciplines are complementary." Guillod has a two year contract with Yamaha Europe, so he need have no concern that he will be placed somewhere; Standing Construct will conrinue in MX2 with Sascha Tonkov and Juilen Lieber.
