FIM Motocross World Championship

KTM, the market leader in sports oriented motorcycles and the company that is always “Ready to Race” has now secured stability for its top class MX World Championship factory racing team right through to 2013, Motorsports boss Pit Beirer has reported.

The Red Bull Teka KTM Racing Team enjoyed its most successful season ever in 2010 and has made of very positive start to racing in 2011 thanks to the passion, skill and dedication of the entire factory team and the ongoing commitment to the company’s unique racing DNA by KTM’s CEO Stefan Pierer.

Going into the new season, Pit Beirer has also paid tribute to the “great cooperation” with Claudio De Carli, the manager of MX1 World Champion Antonio Cairoli. De Carli and Cairoli came into the team together at the beginning of the 2010 season and Tony went on to win the MX1 title riding the KTM 350 SX/F bike in its first year of release.

Pit Beirer says: “We have enjoyed a great cooperation with Claudio De Carli and we very much appreciate and respect his work with the factory team. Now we can look forward to continuing to work closely with Claudio and Tony right through to the end of the 2013 season.”

Pit Beirer said he was particularly pleased that as well as acquiring the extended services of MX1 world champion Tony Cairoli for the coming seasons, also his teammate Max Nagl and the team’s MX2 duo Ken Roczen and Jeffrey Herlings would remain with Red bull Teka KTM Factory Racing until the close of the 2013 season.

He underlined that it was also very important for the continuity of the team’s development that KTM had secured the extended services of factory team manager and multi world champion Stefan Everts right through the 2013 season.

Beirer said the entire Red Bull Teka KTM factory team could now settle down, work hard and move forward to the next stage of its development.

Pit Beirer says: “We have both continuity and commitment for the team and this is very important for building our future.”
