The latest Ohlins MX products are to be put to the test in the Swedish manufacturer's new motocross team.

Ohlins USA has created bikes with specially-designed MX products that will take part in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship, according to MotorycleUSA.com.

Riders Michael Clarke and Garret Toth have already been signed up to race for the new squad, while Ohlins are looking to add a third rider to the line-up very soon.

Ohlins USA's off road manager Stacey Berger said that having a racing team is a huge challenge, but one that the firm is relishing.

"Regularly working closely with our three dedicated riders sharing our mission will allow us to meet our goals quickly, benefitting every Ohlins racer," he told the news provider.

Forming its own team is a natural progression for Ohlins, as the firm supplies most top racing bikes - including the entire MotoGP grid - with front and rear suspension parts.
