AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame
Lars Larsson was a pioneering motocross and off-road racer from Sweden who helped introduce motocross racing to America in the late 1960s. He was a leading International Six Day Trials/Enduro (ISDT/ISDE) rider during the 1960s and 1970s. He earned multiple gold medals riding for the United States, Mexico and his native Sweden. In addition to his excellent racing record, Larsson was also instrumental in setting up the original Husqvarna dealership network across America in the late 1960s, which helped further off-road racing in this country. He also helped launch Torsten Hallman Original Racewear (THOR), which became a leading motocross racing gear and apparel company.
