KTM released the fourth episode Wednesday of “Behind the Machine,” a series that documents KTM’s pursuit of the outdoor AMA 450 Motocross Championship through the past three seasons.

In this episode, titled “building a champion,” KTM talks about the shift from the SX-F 350 to the creation of the SX-F 450.

Speaking of the fourth episode, KTM says: “it was one year ago when the focus at the race shop shifted from the development of the rider friendly 350, to the creation of a highly competitive 450, not only capable of winning races, but also inspiring the confidence of a championship caliber rider.

“With Andrew Short and Mike Alessi racing in a contract year, and Roger Decoster courting previous outdoor champion Ryan Dungey, the face of KTM will forever transform.”

The “Behind the Machine” series features eight webisodes. KTM has partnered with Red Bull to launch the series, which is directed and produced by Troy Adamitis of Adamitis TV.

KTM says: “Throughout the series, viewers will hear interviews from the Red Bull KTM Team members and riders as they live through the highs and lows of the past seasons. The series will conclude with the arrival of KTM’s first 450 Motocross title earned by Red Bull KTM rider Ryan Dungey.”

A new episode is expected to launch every Wednesday.
