Reigning ASBK champion Troy Herfoss inks DesmoSport Ducati deal.
The 2023 ASBK Champion Troy Herfoss inks DesmoSport Ducati deal that will see him take on a role as development rider, allowing him more seat time on a Superbike between his US-based King Of The Baggers race schedule.
Herfoss has officially joined Feel Racing, the company behind DesmoSport Ducati, and the deal will allow him to actively support the team and Broc Pearson behind the scenes in the 2024 ASBK Championship chase.
DesmoSport Ducati team boss Ben Henry said, “It’s great to have Troy part of the team this season. Broc’s riding really well, with significant improvement, especially through the last part of 2023, and Herf brings a level of experience that is incredibly beneficial to us in the garage as well as to Broc, that we’ve already seen some improvement from. We’re getting set for a strong season ahead and I’m really happy we’ve been able to have a bike for Troy to ride when he’s home, and appreciate his support of our season goals.”
Troy Herfoss added, “I’m just really excited for the year ahead. I love riding bikes, challenging myself, and that’s definitely what’s ahead of me. It’s no secret that Ben is a good mate of mine, so I’m excited to play some role in helping the team succeed at home too, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to keep me riding on a fast bike in between races overseas. Broc is a doing a great job on the bike and I’m looking forward to spending more time with him and the team for a strong championship campaign.”
The 2024 Australian Superbike Championship begins 23-25 February alongside WorldSBK at Phillip Island.
