DeCoster Video

KTM, a market leader in offroad motorcycles has signed Roger DeCoster, one of the true icons of the sport of motocross to take over the management of the company’s new factory team in the USA.

The signing of DeCoster represents a major step forward for KTM in the USA. KTM has already reached the top level of the sport in Europe and the World Championship GP series and now looks be a dominant force in US competition.

2010 is the first time that the motorcycle manufacturer had won both the FMI MX1 and MX2 motocross championships in a single season and a testament to the quality of the factory team management, riders and support staff and of the latest generation KTM off-road machines.

Work now immediately begins to prepare the team for the 2011 motocross / Supercross racing season in all of the major US competitions.
