THE WEEKLY FEED: LARRY ROESELER-TEAM HUSKY 1985

CAPTURED: Larry Roeseler 1985 HQV 510

When Husqvarna debuted the TC510 in 1984 their off-road team was stacked and Larry Roeseler took a liking to the new air-cooled 510 four stroke. Of course he was the only team member who could start it consistently and LR took to the four strokes power character. By 1985 (this photo) they had gone to a single shock and had refined the carburetion, but it was a finicky starter at best. Roeseler was competitive in the desert and a major player in the ISDE world, where Larry’s versatility could be showcased.

Wade Young and Mario Roman Confirmed for 2018 Tennessee Knockout Sherco factory riders are among the world’s best Extreme Enduro racers Sequatchie, TN (August 2, 2018) – Sherco has confirmed that both Wade Young and Mario Roman will be competing at the 2018 Kenda Tennessee Knockout on August 19th. Both riders are past podium finishers at the TKO and will be a serious threat to take the win. Young just won the 2018 Red Bull Romaniacs event, arguably one of the toughest Extreme Enduro events in the world. The South African, who is still just twenty-two years old, has previously won the Hells Gate Enduro in Italy and has won the tough multi-day Roof of Africa in his home country two times. Young finished second to Cody Webb at the 2016 TKO and will be gunning for the top step this time around.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

In 1983 Husky made a big change to their off-road line and did away with the 430 engine (of course my favorite) and replaced it with a 500cc powerplant. I never got along with this engine, it was throbby, vibrated like a dryer digesting a size 12 Hi Point boot and was a girthy boy. I shoehorned my 420 Auto engine into the chassis and used this as my enduro steed when I went up north to the District 36 Enduros to do battle with Dave Bertram, Robb Sutliff, Jenn Henning, Eddie Diaz and the boys. In this form it would actually haul my carcass around and I was somewhat competitive. Unfortunately it ate transmission parts and Husky cut me off on Auto parts at the end of the year.
