Husqvarna's legacy in North America is impressive. It started with Torsten Hallman taking 23 of 23 race victories in 1966, simultaneously introducing modern motocross and the Husqvarna brand to American riders. Farther south, Malcolm Smith and JN Roberts started an era of Husqvarna domination on the Baja peninsula. John Penton bucked conventional motorcycle wisdom on a Husqvarna, winning the first of many AMA National Enduro Championships for the fledgling brand. Each rider is a stellar Husqvarna champion who shaped the future off-road racing in America.
