head with being in the premier class, and he has been

WHAT IS JASON PARTICULAR ABOUT IN
TERMS OF BIKE SETUP? All the guys at this level are
particular about their bikes. The good thing for me is that
Jason is really sure of himself. He knows what he wants.
When we’re testing and trying different things, he’s
good at knowing which direction to take. He makes his
decisions final, and there’s no second-guessing. He has a
good head on his shoulders.
HOW HAS JASON ADAPTED TO THE NEW
HUSQVARNA FC450? At times a 450 can be a

package the new bike is really good. It has helped him
reach his potential a little bit easier.
