Accomplishments summary: 

“In 2009 I won the Junior Swedish Championship title. I then went on to win the Swedish Championship in 2010. That same year, I also participated in the European Championship, taking 2nd in Germany, and the World Championship, in which I placed 17th.
After making the move to American in 2011 for my rookie year, I traveled the AMA Pro Nationals with MX Heaven for two years. Riding a CRF450 with a stock motor, I placed 26th overall in 2011. In both 2012 & 2013 I missed half of the season, but with increased knowledge and experience of the American tracks I still earned 31st and 27th overall in points. In 2014 I was picked up part way through the season by Honda’s race team and earned 10th overall in points. In addition to this, I raced that same year for Sweden’s Motocross of Nations Team. 2015 I raced again in America with the support of Honda as well as the new help of Motosport and GPI. Despite missing the last couple races of the season, I earned 10th overall in points again. I look forward to 2017 and continuing to move in this current direction of new accomplishments.”

Fredrik Noren First Bike                                       History:

“I think that the interest in motocross started when I was around 5 age. I watched as my brothers drove and thought it looked really cool like it was just for dad to get me a bike, borrowed a  50cc from some friends until I turned 6 and dad got a bike just for me.  I remember it so well, it was an awesome bike, a kawa 60cc. I was so happy so I did not say a word! It was on my 6 birthday and after that I have always thought it is the best there is! Then after a few years it started to get a little more serious.”

2006: “Joined the Swedish team, rode Svemo cup and tried to ride a little more outside of Sweden.  I took some points in junior European championship. I took 4th total in Svemo cup.”

2005: “Started to ride a little faster and tried to run the Svemo cup (usm). I ran all the races and it went well for the first serious year. I finished 11 total in the series.”

2007: “Went up to ride 250f also called mx2. I also still rode Svemo cup and tried a few junior European championship races and took some points. I took 4th total in Svemo cup again. I then got a “wildcard” to race the last Swedish championship race at Tomelilla. There I qualified in 17th and ended up 12th and 24th in the motos.”

2008: “I was no longer an amateur racer, I was a pro racer. I focused on riding Swedish championship and took 71 points. Finished 9th in total standings. I also did the Junior Swedish championship, finished 5th total in that series. I then started motocross school that same fall.”

2009: “Won the Junior Swedish Championship and ended up 7th total in the Swedish championship. I had a lot of bad luck this year and felt that I should of been on the podium in the Swedish championship. This same year I raced the Junior Mx of nations with  Filip Thuresson and Calle Aspegren.”

2010: “Won the Swedish championship in the 250 class. I tried one GP and ended up 17th and 24th in the motos. I was selected to represent Sweden in Thunder Valley mxon. I addition to this, I raced Coupe de l’avenir for Sweden and got 3rd and 6th  in the motos.”

2011: “I graduated motocross school and decided to race in America. I did ok for being my first year outside of Sweden and got some points. I took 46 points and finished 26th place in the entire series. This year I also got selected to represent Sweden in France at the mxon.”

2012: “After being home in Sweden during the winter to work, I decided again to go back to America to race. Missed half the season due to injury and came back at Redbud. My injury was still bothering me a lot, but could still make pretty good results. Had two top 10 finishes and got 39 points and end up at a 31st place overall in the series.”

2013: “I tried racing a few Arenacross races and did ok for hardly any practice at all. Then I went back home to Sweden for work. I left for California in March hoping to start riding for outdoors, but with troubles raising enough money for my season I was without a bike for a long time. I borrowed money to buy my bikes and started prepping in April. With not enough practice and testing I actually started out the season pretty well. I was one of the best placing privateers till I broke my wrist; again I missed half of my outdoor season. Finished 27th in points standing and earned race number 80 for 2014.”

2014: “I raced as number 80 outdoors as a privateer, part way through the season I was picked up by Muscle Milk Honda to race for them and all serve as a test rider. At the end of the season I earned 10th overall in points.”

2015: “I raced the AMA Pro Nationals as number 39 for Honda and Motosport/GPI/Honda team here in America. In addition to this, I continued worked for Honda as a test rider and plan to continue into 2016. A few races in 2015 were missed due to injury, but given this, I earned 10th overall in points again.”
