KTM’s series, “Behind the Machine,” which documents KTM’s pursuit of the AMA 450 Motocross Championship through the past three seasons, concluded this week with the eighth wepisode.

Speaking of the latest webisode, titled “Finale – History is Made,” KTM says “It was a year of sacrifice and euphoria. KTM never won a premier class championship in American motocross. Three years ago they vowed to take the success they earned in Europe overseas to the United States. In the season finale of Behind the Machine, history will be made.”

To launch the “Behind the Machine” series, KTM partnered with Red Bull. The series 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.”
