9th Rd. Motocross 2016 – Talavera de la Reina (ESP)

Jeffrey Herlings had quite strong starts on the KTM 250 SX-F but had to chase down French rider Dylan Ferrandis in the opening laps of his two races. “I managed to overtake Ferrandis quite quickly and did what I had to do to win the moto. I pulled a pretty good start in the second moto and was top five and managed to come out on top again.” When asked if Ferrandis might give him some problems next weekend at the French races, Herlings said: “I know what to expect.”

Pauls Jonass said he had enjoyed his weekend racing and was happy with his result. “I had good battles with Paturel in the first race and with Seewer in the second, right up to the first half of the last lap when he made a mistake. I really enjoyed the races and I’m looking forward to the next GP. We need to ride a bit more on hard pack this week and physically I am quite okay.”

It was a difficult weekend for Tony Cairoli in the MXGP class who had his share of bad luck and came away with a 5-9 moto result for overall seventh. The Italian, who had made a strong comeback from injury problems in the last three rounds on the KTM 450 SX-F said where he normally likes the Spanish track, he didn’t feel comfortable right from Saturday’s qualification race. “It was a little muddy yesterday and it’s a long time since I rode in the mud so I wasn’t feeling 100%, but I managed to come back to sixth place in qualifying, so I was happy with that, and also my speed was okay.”

Cairoli got a good start in the first moto but had some arm pump problems and said he was riding tight and was not content with his fifth place. Then things went wrong for him in the second moto. “The gate stayed up a little long and I lost concentration, I made a bit of a false start and when it came down I was last.” He still managed to move up through the pack to seventh place in the first 3-4 laps, but while trying to overtake another rider he hit some mud and went over the handlebars. “I crashed pretty hard and I had some pain in my neck and shoulders so it as a difficult race. But we will move on. From now on I will try to win races and be up front.”

2nd Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Glen Helen, CA (USA)

Moto 1
Ryan Dungey got off to a great start in Moto 1 as he assumed the early lead in the race. The reigning 450 Class Champion led the first eight laps of the race until Roczen made a pass for the lead just after the halfway point.

However, with a hard-charging Dungey in tow, Roczen succumbed to a bike issue with only a few laps left to go. From there, Dungey capitalized on Roczen’s situation in order to overtake the lead and finish strong to capture the Moto 1 victory.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Marvin Musquin powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION off the start to begin the race inside the top five. Musquin passed his way up to 3rd where he remained for a few laps before dropping back a few positions. Musquin continued to fight for a top-five position throughout the entire race where he ended up crashing on the final lap in the “Supercross section” of the track. The 450 Class Rookie rebounded as quickly as possible to salvage 9th place in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey was quick off the line as he rode nearly side-by-side with Roczen through the first turn. Dungey got the early advantage but it was Roczen who overtook the lead on the opening lap. Dungey was able to make gains on the leader of Roczen several times throughout the 15-lap race but ultimately wasn’t able to make any advances.

With a win behind him heading into Moto 2, Dungey was able to secure the overall victory with 1-2 moto finishes, while Roczen ended the day in 2nd overall with 4-1 moto scores.

FMF/KTM’s Russell Bobbitt grabbed his first win of the season this weekend at the Boyesen 2-Stroke Revolution Cherokee National Enduro in Greensboro, Georgia – round four of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series.

After three-straight runner-up finishes, Bobbitt, who is coming off of a shoulder separation just three weeks ago, finally put a clean race together and wound up dominating the Georgia event, winning four of the six tests and finishing the race with a minute and a half cushion over runner-up Steward Baylor.

On Saturday, the threat of rain loomed over the event, and left most of the nearly 500 riders expecting a muddy race. However, most of the bad weather missed the Greensboro area, dropping just enough moisture to leave the course with incredible conditions.

“The conditions were epic,” said Bobbitt. “Everyone was scared it was going to be a mud fest, but it was perfect. I felt confident with the conditions, and I was feeling good on the bike.

“I just missed winning the first test by a second or two and then I won the next four. The last test, I missed winning it by just a second, so I was on my game. I didn’t have any tip-overs or stalls, so it was a nearly perfect day.”

The win moved Bobbitt into the series points lead, 11 points ahead of Steward Baylor.

1st Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Hangtown, CA (USA)

With only one weekend off between the AMA Supercross finale and the opening round of American Motocross, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team switched gears with new bike set-up and much different track conditions outdoors.

Moto 1
In Moto 1, Ryan Dungey powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into a top three position off the start, where he quickly jumped into 2nd place behind Ken Roczen on lap two. His teammate, Marvin Musquin, got a great jump off the start to begin the race inside the top five.

With consistently fast lap times, Dungey chased Roczen down for the lead position throughout the entire 34-minute race but it wasn’t enough to close the gap that Roczen created right off the start.

Meanwhile, Musquin dropped back a few positions to ultimately finish 9th place in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey shot off the line to capture the holeshot but Roczen got around him to take over the early lead on lap one. From there, Dungey put forth a hard-fought effort to catch Roczen out front, where he came within a seconds of the leader at times. Despite a valiant effort, Dungey finished 2nd place in Moto 2, where he secured 2nd overall for the day.

“It was overall a really good way to begin the season,” Dungey said. “We want to win for sure but overall we’re just getting things started in outdoors, adapting to the bike and keeping the comfort from Supercross flowing into this summer. The speed was there, everything was there, and I trust the boys at KTM to keep advancing the bike and I’ll do the work on my side to get there.”

Musquin began Moto 2 outside the top ten but the 450 Class Rookie set his sights on moving through the pack. Musquin made a few passes to reach the 7th place position where set his sights on Justin Barcia in 6th. As the race wore on, Musquin was able to close the gap on Barcia but he wasn’t able to climb into another position before the checkered flag flew.

With moto scores of 9-7, Musquin secured 8th overall at the season opener.

“The first moto didn't go as I wanted but we worked between the motos with the team and came out with good changes," Musquin said. "I'm happy to finally race my first AMA 450 outdoor race and can't wait to go to the next one! I know the season will be long and I want to keep improving."

8th Rd. Motocross 2016 – Pietramurata (ITA)

For Tony Cairoli it was a sweet victory in MXGP, his second consecutive top step after battling injury at the beginning of the season in front of a euphoric home Italian crowd who rewarded him with rapturous celebration at the end of the second moto.

Cairoli took the win in the first MXGP moto after snatching the holeshot on his KTM 450 SX-F and managing to stay out in front throughout the moto while there were serious scraps behind among other major players. He was second behind Gajser out of the gates in his second race but the Slovenian rider took a heavy fall with 14 minutes of regular time still on the clock and Cairoli advanced into the lead. The Italian conceded the race victory in the final stages of the race after a furious duel with Febvre but his 1-2 was good enough to take the overall victory.

Cairoli’s two GP wins here in Italy, and in the last round in Teutschenthal, Germany have allowed him to start to close the gap to points leaders Gajser and Febvre. They top the points table after eight of 18 rounds and are now separated by 14 points while Cairoli, the eight-time champion trails second placed Febvre by 21 points. The Italian however is gaining in fitness, confidence and strength in each round. Cairoli’s teammate Glenn Coldenhoff finished his weekend in 17th overall after a 16-16 moto results but is still confident of improving in the next round.

Cairoli: “I’m finding my speed again and my physical condition is improving. My arm is improving with the latest therapy that I am doing and I am feeling stronger. It’s difficult to win a home GP. This track is not one of my favorites and it’s where I have struggled a bit in the past. But this weekend was good for the championship and I made a lot of points. In the last two weekends we have almost closed the gap.” Speaking about his two young rivals he said: “For sure they are in better shape. They are motivated and riding aggressively but the championship is long and I am getting closer every weekend.”

7th Rd. Motocross 2016 – Teutschenthal (GER)

It was a welcome return to the podium for Tony Cairoli who has been making a recovery from a lingering pre-season injury. In fact it was a near perfect weekend for the Italian, who was the fastest qualifier on Saturday then delivered two impressive moto wins to take home the GP silverware.

Cairoli kicked off his day with an inspired first race. He took the holeshot on the KTM 450 SX-F and immediately assumed control of the track while the two riders who currently top the leader board, Tim Gajser and Romain Febvre, were buried down in the pack. By mid race Gajser had found his way up to second place and went on the attack. He managed to briefly pass Cairoli but the Italian quickly responded and while Gajser threw everything possible at him, the eight times world champion was having none of it. He went on to win the opening moto by more than four seconds.

The Italian was equally inspiring in his second moto, grabbing the holeshot once again and taking charge at the front while the young pretenders did battle behind him. This time he was never really challenged throughout the race and while Evgeny Bobryshev and Romain Febvre battled it out for the minor podium places in the last stages, this allowed him to go into cruise mode in his final lap.

Cairoli, referring to his recent injury problems said: “I feel good for sure although I still miss something. The skills I have on this very difficult and technical track helped me to win today with a perfect score. Winning the qualification on Saturday and the two races today, it hasn’t happened often but I gained some strength this week in my arm and I very happy about that. I feel better and when you feel better you can respond and go on the attack.”

Team manager Claudio De Carli speaking about Cairoli’s win said: “We knew it was going to happen sooner or later. He already had a podium in Argentina and Kegums so it was only a matter of time. Tony and the team have worked hard on the development of the bike and on his physical condition, which has improved and this has helped him be where he is today. He really needed one victory to unblock him a bit and it came in Saturday’s qualification. This motivated him to do what he is capable of doing. Today he rode really well and when he was overtaken and made the pass again he did it with a lot of class like only Tony can do. We still have work to do to be 100% fit but we are going in the right direction.”

Cairoli’s win allowed him to start to narrow the points gap between the two leaders Gajser and Febvre who are separated by only eight points. He will also have the benefit of the support of his army of fans, the more than enthusiastic Italian ‘tifosi’, at home in Italy during next week’s races. Cairoli’s teammate Glenn Coldenhoff had a more difficult day, coming away with a 16-11 race result for overall 13th.

Team Manager Joel Smets said they continue to work with Coldenhoff who is very fast in training and extremely fit, but possibly puts too much pressure on himself when it comes to race days. “We all believe in Glenn,” he said.

Erzbergrodeo XXII – Eisenerz (AUT)

Jarvis was however in a class of his own, taking his third victory by more than 30-minutes to equal Red Bull KTM factory rider Jonny Walker’s three wins at Erzberg. Walker was unable to compete because he is still recovering from injury but said in the finish area: “Graham did a faultless race.” Alfredo Gomez was heading for second place with the new KTM 300 EXC MY17 going into the last big challenge but needed multiple attempts to get to the summit before the final run to the line.

Webb appeared to have a crisis moment going through the incredibly difficult Karl’s Dinner rock section and commented later: “It was so rough. I knew I just had to survive. I was able to keep Alfredo in my sights. Then the last climb was so difficult I didn’t think we were going to make it. Luckily I was able to pass Alfredo. This is such a surreal feeling and I’m just so glad KTM gave me the opportunity to come over here.”

It was an eventful day for Gomez, who was a joint winner in 2015. He started strongly in the top five and even led the race at one of the early stages. Then he crashed hard and broke his backpack, including his supply of rehydration drink. By the time he reached the final big climb he said he was extremely tired. “I tried to find the right line, but it was impossible. I tried in third and second gear and I needed many times to do it. But the bike was good and I am happy to be on the podium.”

Spanish rider Mario Roman gained two places on the slope to finish fourth ahead of UK KTM rider Billy Bolt and South African Wade Young, both clearly the next generation of Hard Enduro riders.

In fact Bolt was one of the big stories of the 2016 edition. A new talent in the racing stable of manager Julian Stephens, he qualified at 51st on the second row and was fourth about 45 minutes from the end. But he lost the chain on his bike and had to do some emergency repairs. When he got to the final climb he flew past two riders to finish fifth in his debut Hare Scramble.

Bolt: “Julian told me after ‘Dynamite’ that the others were struggling at ‘Lazy Noon’. He said I should attack here and make sure I get up the hill. That went well and I got past Wayne and Taddy and I’m delighted to get to the finish line.”

Young, Paul Bolton and five-times winner Taddy Blazusiak finished 6-8. Blazusiak, the most winning rider at the Erzbergrodeo with five victories to his name, dropped down the order after damaging a brake lever about half way through the race. Then he broke the clutch lever. He soldiered on but had particular difficulty on the last climb, which required all his skills to make it to the top without a clutch lever. KTM rider Philipp Scholz finished ninth.

5th/6th Rd. Enduro 2016 – Grevena (GRE)

Day 1
Heavy rain at the venue on Saturday made the going tough but the factory team’s rookie British rider Nathan Watson finished 14 seconds behind new overall EnduroGP class winner Eero Remes, while third went to Matthew Phillips, the overall leader.

Remes and Watson were also 1-2 in the Enduro 1 class on the opening day. Watson was an early leader on the very slippery track with his new KTM 250 EXC-F but Remes prevailed in the day’s final lap. Watson’s KTM teammate Ivan Cervantes was third in the class although finished some 2.5 minutes behind the leaders.

The team’s American rider Taylor Robert was the fastest in special test times in the E2 class on the KTM 350 EXC-F but a time keeping error cost him a 60-second penalty and he was bumped down the third. This left the two top spots to Phillips and Loic Larrieu.

Day 2
Robert had another strong day on Sunday where rain held off but residual mud from the downpour the previous day meant conditions were still difficult. With a second place in E2, the American was very close to claiming the class win. Watson, whose weekend earned him a 2-2 result in E1, has made a very strong transition from Motocross to Enduro in just three, two-stage rounds. It was also a step in the right direction for the team veteran Cervantes who finished with a 3-4 in E1. Unfortunately the team was without the services of French rider Christophe Nambotin who is still recovering from an early season injury.

KTM once again underlines its commitment to its foundations in offroad, as its world-dominating, class-leading Enduro machines have been completely revised with a staggering 90 per cent of the model year 2017 line-up’s components being new. Notable weight reductions of up to five kilograms have been realized throughout the model range, with improved mass centralization resulting in increased performance and better handling.

For MY2017 the line-up has been changed to include the 125 XC-W and 150 XC-W (replacing the 125 and 200 EXC), which are specifically designed for closed course racing, as well as the more traditional, fully homologated powerhouses with the 250 EXC and 300 EXC in the 2-stroke range. In the 4-stroke range KTM continues with its completely updated versions of the 250 EXC-F, 350 EXC-F models, as well as modifying the name of the higher capacity models to fall in line with the typical 4-stroke name to 450 EXC-F and 500 EXC-F.

Not only does each machine receive a new chassis with new suspension including the WP XPlor 48 upside-down split fork by WP, the R&D team in Mattighofen, Austria combined with its network of test riders, factory racing teams and input from KTM North America R&D, has worked tirelessly to deliver new engines at the same time with improved performance, reduced weight and a more compact size to assist with better machine handling.

With refinements from the frame and bodywork, down to the smaller details in the dashboard of these READY TO RACE machines, KTM has utilized the latest technology to consider every improvement possible for the amateur rider right up-to the professional world championship racer.

Following a tried and tested tradition, the specially finished SIX DAYS models stand side by side with the legendary, new generation EXC bikes. Available as 2- and 4-stroke bikes and equipped with several performance-enhancing and useful technical parts, the new “Six Days Spain” bikes, designed with sophisticated special graphics, top the latest KTM EXC model range.

Joachim Sauer (KTM Offroad Product Manager): “As the saying goes, after the race is before the race. According to our understanding in state-of-the-art development, the brand new line-up of our offroad competition Enduros are proof of KTM`s ongoing commitment to our core discipline. We believe this Enduro sportmotorcycle range will push the excitement and satisfaction of any rider to a new level.”

The new KTM MY2017 Enduro range was unveiled yesterday evening at its launch in Les Comes, Spain and the new machines will begin to arrive in European dealers in June.

17th Rd. Supercross 2016 – Las Vegas, NV (USA)

Inclement weather cancelled the morning’s qualifying sessions as a major downpour occurred just after the first practice. As a result, the evening’s qualifying positions were pulled from the free practice, where Ryan Dungey put his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION atop the field, with Marvin Musquin in the 7th place position.

Both riders were seeded into 450SX Heat 2, where unfavorable track conditions awaited following hours of heavy rain. Despite the muddy obstacles, Dungey captured the holeshot and led all five laps of the heat race. Musquin began the race in the 5th place position where he was unable to make an advance into a transfer spot.

Musquin lined up in 450SX Semi 2, where he was able to secure a transfer position into the Main Event with a 3rd place finish.

Main Event
In the 450SX Main Event, Dungey shot off the line to capture the holeshot and the early lead in the race, while Musquin followed close behind in 4th. Dungey led the first six laps of the Main Event before Ken Roczen made a pass to take over the lead. However, Roczen lost control and crashed through a rhythm section soon after, and Dungey, with nowhere to go, ran into him and crashed as well. Dungey quickly remounted and reclaimed the lead, while Roczen eventually pulled off.

Meanwhile, Musquin was riding a solid pace inside the top five when he landed off a double and collided with another rider, causing him to crash hard. As a result, Musquin was forced to pull into the mechanic’s area to make adjustments to the bike.

Dungey held strong amidst a chaotic Main Event to capture his 9th victory of the season in Las Vegas.

“Tonight was a challenge and the track was tough with that drizzle (rain). I really needed that good start,” Dungey said. “I’m glad we got a win to end the season strong and get ready for what lies ahead. This is one of my best seasons in Supercross so far and I’m looking forward to more.”

Kailub Russell wins inaugural CST Tires Camp Coker Bullet GNCC while Layne Michael claims first XC2 Pro Lites victory of the season

The new venue located in Society Hill, South Carolina was an instant hit among racers and fans, but the lighting storm also made quite the impression forcing the race being cut short to two hours to accommodate the deteriorating track that quickly became impassable with the substantial amount of rain that occurred prior to the start.

The GNCC Track Crew worked diligently to completely re-route the race track for the 1 p.m. pro race, and once the checkered flag flew on the gruelling six-lap race it was FMF/KTM Factory Racing's Kailub Russell who landed on the middle of the box and took home the inaugural win.

Once the green flag dropped, it was Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing/Bel-Ray's Josh Strang who jumped out to the early lead claiming the $250 All Balls Racing Holeshot Award. With Russell stuck in a mid-pack position, Strang looked to capitalise on the early lead.

However, Russell knew that he had to quickly pass the rest of the field while they were still grouped together on the first lap. The three-time champion was able to adjust to the changing track conditions and make his way to the lead once he checked into timing and scoring for the first time.
