GEICO Honda Rider Osborne Named To U.S. Enduro Team

For the second time in his illustrious career, GEICO Honda 250 rider Zach Osborne was honored with one of six spots on the U.S. World Trophy Team for the 89th International Six Days Enduro event, Nov. 3-8, in San Juan, Argentina.

"It's an honor to be chosen a second time to compete in this event," Osborne said. "I think this year will be even better for me because last year was my rookie year. I feel like I was a little bit green to the event and everything around me. Hopefully, this year I will be more prepared knowledge-wise for what to expect. I'm really looking forward to having this opportunity again."

Even though this is only his second year on a GEICO Honda, Osborne has an abundant amount of professional riding experience internationally. Before returning to the U.S. full-time, Osborne competed in Europe for five years of his career trying to capture an MX2 championship.

"I think my past international riding experience will work to my benefit," Osborne said. "I've been fortunate to experience many different cultures throughout my career. That, paired with my adaptability, should really help me.

"This year the event is being held in South America. I've actually been there a few times already, and I definitely think that gives me a little bit of an advantage."

After suffering a left-thumb injury in the motocross season opener and sitting out the entire 2014 season so far, Osborne looks to make his return to the motocross circuit this year at the Unadilla National, Aug. 9, in New Berlin, N.Y., where he will finish out the AMA Pro Motocross season.

"I think I've used my time off this summer wisely to train and be prepared for my return to the outdoor motocross series," Osborne said. "I hope to use the end of the season to show everyone what could have been this season and lead me up into the International Six Days Enduro on a positive note."
