KTM confirms company's factory teams looking forward to US GP in Glen Helen
Robert Boop
With the opening of the MX World Championship season in Bulgaria just around the corner, the Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Team is busy preparing to defend the MX1 and MX2 titles won in 2010 during the team's most successful ever championships. One of the highlights of the current season will be the US GP in Glen Helen, they confirm.

Speaking from the company headquarters in Mattighofen, Austria, KTM Racing Department chief Pit Beirer underlined that the company intended to launch its best riders and efforts into securing the titles again in 2011. This also included having a strong lineup for the US GP in Glen Helen, scheduled for May 15, 2011. The US GP was re-introduced into the program last season and given the importance of Motocross in the USA, is welcomed by the teams.
Pit Beirer: "Of course the US GP at Glen Helen is a great addition to the World Championship calendar and one that we expect to be a highlight in 2011. We will be there with a very strong lineup of our top riders because the event helps to reflect to increasingly global aspect of the championships and because the USA plays a pivotal role in our sport."
KTM made a firm commitment to be directly involved in racing in the US domestic competitions from 2011 and is currently fielding a strong lineup of riders in the Red Bull KTM Factory Team contesting the 2011 AMA SX and MX outdoor series under the leadership of MX legend Roger DeCoster.
Pit Beirer and Roger Decoster have both confirmed that one of the highlights of Glen Helen will be the expected return to the track of MX2 World Champion, Marvin Musquin. The French rider is in the USA working on his post-surgery rehabilitation after knee surgery. He incurred ligament damage in November riding at the Paris Bercy Supercross.
Currently racing in the USA for Red Bull KTM are Andrew Short, Mike Alessi and after his return to the track in the outdoor season, Marvin Musquin. The 16-year-old MX2 vice world champion Ken Roczen is racing selected events in the US SX season before returning to Europe for the World Championship series.
The Red Bull Teka KTM Factory Racing Team for the World Championships continues under the expert leadership of 10-times World Champion Stefan Everts and Claudio De Carli. Riders for 2011 are: MX 1: World Champion Tony Cairoli of Italy and Max Nagl of Germany; MX2: Roczen, 16-year-old Dutch talent Jeffrey Herlings and Jeremy van Horebeek of Belgium
