The FactoryONE Sherco Team announced that it has re-signed Louise Forsley for the 2021 off-road season.
Forsley, Sherco Together Again
FactoryONE Sherco welcomes back Louise Forsley to the FactoryONE Sherco Trials and Enduro Teams. Louise was the runner up in the AMA Extreme Off-Road series in 2020 and the third-place finisher in AMA EnduroCross, which had its season condensed into a two-week schedule all at Glen Helen Raceway. Louise is a 6x US Trials Champion but didn’t get to compete in the NATC (North American Trials Council) season as it was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. Louise did however win the California Trial Invitational in Murrieta, CA, which was the only trial held with a Women’s Pro Field.
Louise: “I am so excited to sign with the FactoryOne Sherco USA team again for the 2021 season. I feel very fortunate to have a team behind me that supports all my motorcycle passions. I have been with the Sherco brand for a very long time and am so grateful for the opportunity to continue to be part of the family. Thank you FactoryOne and Sherco USA for allowing me to continue to live the dream!”

Team Owner Ron Sallman says, “We are beyond thrilled to have Louise back on the FactoryONE Sherco Team. Louise is one of the most talented motorcycle riders, and that is seen by her ability to ride slow and technical in Trials and then flip the switch to Hard Enduro and EnduroCross. She is a tremendous ambassador for the Sherco brand.”
Louise will be back to compete in the entire 2021 NATC Trials Series, AMA Extreme Off-Road Series, and AMA EnduroCross Series. She will spend most of her seat time on a Sherco SE 125 2-stroke in Extreme Off-Road and might make the switch to an SEF 250 Factory 4-stroke for EnduroCross. She rides an ST 250 Factory for observed Trials.
