  1. #222 adds another 2! Red Bull KTM Factory Racing are thrilled and proud to announce that reigning MXGP number one and nine times FIM Motocross World Champion Antonio Cairoli will remain part of the team for another two years and through the 2019 and 2020 Grand Prix seasons. The 32 year old Sicilian renewed his contract on Thursday in Rome in the presence of Team Manager Claudio De Carli and KTM Motorsports Director Pit Beirer. The agreement means that Cairoli – who gave the factory their first title in the premier class of the FIM series with the KTM 350 SX-F in 2010 and delivered the KTM 450 SX-F’s first MXGP crown in 2017 – will register eleven years with the brand. The 2018 contest begins next weekend with the first round of nineteen taking place at Neuquen for the Grand Prix of Patagonia Argentina. The South American fixture will mark the beginning of Cairoli’s fifteenth term as a full-time GP rider and his ninth in Red Bull KTM colors. In a remarkable career that boasts nine titles (seven in the premier class since 2009, six with SX-F technology), 213 GP appearances, 83 career wins and 145 podiums (with 163 moto victories) Cairoli is still the reference for the sport as he bids for a record-equaling tenth championship and his first viable ‘defense’ of the No.1 status with the KTM 450 SX-F. “I’m really happy to announce this because we already made history in 2010 with the KTM 350 SX-F against the 450s and succeeded with that challenge. I feel a part of KTM because of that success and since then the company has grown a lot,” commented Cairoli. “I put in a lot of effort to bring titles and I feel very proud to be part of the company. They invest a lot and do a lot of work in development and you see the result because it is the top off-road manufacturer in the world. I’m happy to continue and to do another two years and to try for more titles. I’m fully motivated for the upcoming seasons.” “Around two years ago people were already saying that Tony was getting too old to stay at the top and I took that moment to declare that we had full trust in his skills and capabilities. He had two tough seasons but it was amazing how he bounced back in 2017 and showed that we were absolutely right,” said Pit Beirer. “It made me happy and very proud that he wanted to continue and he wants to keep pushing. I believe Tony has found the right balance in his life - personally and professionally - to keep racing and wanting to achieve. He is very passionate about it and this is why he continues to be so strong. I’m only too happy to make this strong commitment to Tony and very pleased that our MXGP story will go on. I also want to thank and pay credit to Claudio De Carli and his role. He has had a big say in the Cairoli-KTM success over the years and long may it last.” Red Bull KTM Factory Racing head to Argentina in the coming days as world champions in both categories of the FIM Motocross World Championship for the sixth time this decade. www.mxgp.com www.ktm.com | media.ktm.com Facebook | YouTube | Twitter | Instagram
  2. Battling his way through a challenging weekend of racing at the sandy track of Lommel, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin has wrapped up round 14 of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship claiming fifth overall in the MXGP class. Delivering a solid performance in Belgium, Thomas Kjer-Olsen placed fifth overall in the MX2 category.
  3. April 2, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – American MX2 star Thomas Covington has claimed an impressive overall MX2 class win at the GP of Leon, collecting a fourth place result and a race win at the rough Mexican track. In what was a great GP for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, Gautier Paulin earned a podium result getting third overall in MXGP class. Confident of strong results at a track where the American had earned his first GP victory in 2015, Covington didn’t fail to deliver in Leon. The weekend started with Thomas getting a convincing qualifying race win to place himself on pole position for MX2’s final motos. Getting a good jump out of the gate in the opening moto, Covington found himself in sixth at the end of the first lap. Making some crucial passes he crossed the line fourth. With his FC 250 machine powering him to the holeshot in moto two, Thomas made a smart and well-calculated race. Following Pauls Jonass for the first six laps, he made a successful move for the lead on lap seven and never looked back. Earning 43 points from the GP of Leon Covington climbed to eighth in the provisional MX2 championship standings. Making the most out of a challenging GP, Covington’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 teammate Thomas Kjer-Olsen wrapped up round four of the series with a seventh place overall result. Starting both motos outside the top 10 the FC 250 mounted rider had to push hard to collect two seventh place results in Leon. Earning valuable points Kjer-Olsen remains fifth in the MX2 championship standings. Following tough times during the last few rounds Conrad Mewse sat out of the Mexican GP. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing MX2 rider will return to action at the following round of the series in Italy. In the MXGP category, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Gautier Paulin enjoyed a solid weekend of racing in Mexico. The Frenchman kicked off a highly positive round four with a strong runner-up result in the qualifying race. Capitalising on a great start in the opening MXGP moto Gautier found himself fighting for the runner-up spot, before eventually settling for a strong third place result. Getting an even better start in moto two Paulin put himself in third at the end of the opening lap. Successfully defending his place until the end of the race, he wrapped up the GP with one more third place result to get on the MXGP podium for the first time this season. Earning important championship points Paulin moved to fifth in the class’ points standings. The GP of Leon saw Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl battle through a challenging race weekend to claim eighth overall in MXGP class. Showing good speed in both motos the German collected 7/8 moto results and is currently placed ninth in the MXGP provisional standings. For Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Anstie the GP of Leon was an event of mixed fortunes. Earning third in the MXGP qualifying race the Brit was confident of positive results in the final motos. Making a small mistake after the start of the opening moto Anstie pushed hard to finish the race in ninth. Getting a better start in moto two the Brit suffered a crash that forced him to settle for 13th. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will return to action at round five of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship in Italy on April 15/16. Thomas Covington: “It was one of the best GPs of my career. I felt good throughout the weekend and that helped me stay focused and do my own races. Following our qualifying race win we had a great gate pick for the final motos. I didn’t get the best of starts in moto one but got my head down and managed to get fourth. My start was a lot better in moto two. I got the holeshot and soon found myself in second behind Jonass. I spotted some good lines and was able to make my move for the lead a few laps later. Winning the second moto and getting the overall victory is a great confidence booster. We had a rough start to this championship but things are a lot better now. I’m looking forward to the races to come.” Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a difficult weekend but we did our best to collect points for the championship. We struggled a bit with the track and the high altitude but worked hard and made progress during the weekend. My starts were not good so I had to push hard in both motos. In the first race I went as high as sixth but made a small mistake before the end and had to settle for seventh. Then again in moto two I was outside the top ten at the end of lap one. I made some passes and got seventh again for seventh overall at the GP. Despite tough conditions we collected valuable points and remain fifth in the MX2 championship standings. We’re heading to Europe now and we will keep fighting to go even higher in the standings.” Gautier Paulin: “Everything is coming together for us and it feels really rewarding to get on the podium. We’ve made big improvements with the bike and I’ve also managed to improve my starts. We were strong throughout the weekend in Mexico. From the time practice to the qualifying heat and the final motos we were always inside the top three. In moto one I made a good start and managed to cross the line in third. My start was even better in moto two. Despite feeling a bit tired I managed to get a good race pace to end up third again. I can’t thank all my team enough for all their hard work. I’m having fun on my bike at the moment and our goal now is to consistently battle for the podium at each GP.” Max Nagl: “It was a tough GP for us and I’m glad we managed to salvage some good points. I feel that all the travelling we’ve done this season has affected my body and I felt tired throughout the weekend. Despite a not so great gate pick I got two good starts. In moto one I was running in fourth before eventually dropping to seventh. Then in moto two I was again running close to the top but had to settle for eighth. The work continues for us and I can’t wait to get back to Europe for the next GPs. I’m looking forward to returning to our normal training and racing schedule. I know the speed is there so it’s up to me now to show we can battle for the top.” Max Anstie: “Overall, I’m satisfied with my performance. I rode strong and showed the speed is there. The weekend started quite well with a top three in the qualifying heat. In moto one I was a bit too eager to get a good start so made a small mistake after the gate dropped. I made some good passes during the moto to end up inside the top ten in ninth. Then in moto two I was running in sixth but made a mistake and crashed. My bike works very well and I’m confident we’re moving towards the right direction. It was great Gautier got on the podium and I’m hoping we’ll have more than one Husqvarna machines on the box in the following GPs.” Results – FIM Motocross World Championship, Round 4 MXGP – Overall 1.

  4. Just wondering if the ordinary person can buy a factroy edition ktm. I.e sxf 450
  5. Thanks to Harvey, forcast has rain down there Wed, Thrus, Fri, Sat, and Sun. Is this place all sand? Is there much mud and clay?
  6. See https://motocrossactionmag.com/is-suzuki-pulling-out-of-the-world-motocross-championships/ Considering running costs, it's little surprise that a couple of factory 250F teams are being shutdown and one scaled down. Does this 450 team pull back mean that 4 strokes are now too expensive for the manufacturers too? The top end of the sport seems unsustainable. One solution might be for factory teams to quit funding race teams at the elite end, and put the money saved into lower bike prices for the consumers. I hope Suzuki chiefs regret shutting down their 2 stroke development. Cannot say I feel sorry for them.
  7. Yesterday Tim Gajser dominated at the MXGP of Argentinia and grabbed the red plate with two hands. He rides really smart, calm and committed. Jeffrey Herlings still not at where we all expected and Cairoli with two horrible starts, but still quick... http://mxdose.com/mxdose/gajser-jonass-dominant-in-argentina/ Highlights: http://mxdose.com/mxdose/mxgp-of-argentina-2017-highlights/
  8. I have a 2002 yz85 with a dep expansion chamber and dep end can, pretty sure my bike is running on standard jets but the bike seems really boggy at the low end and spits out so much oil from the exhaust does anyone know what jets to run for the dep pipes?
  9. hello everyone. recently purchased a 2012 KTM 150 SX. guy told me all it needed was a refresh on the top end(obviously piston and rings specifically) so i get the bike home start breaking it down, get it down to bare frame then go into the head and the cylinder jug has a piece of it missing (i think the piece that is missing was some kid of tab that guided the piston, but with that piece gone it blew the back of the piston skirt out. oh did i mention the engine was filled with water? i drained it before taking the motor apart. anywas, smh... i have a lot of money into this bike, a new cylinder barrel/jug is almost $1,000 from ktm. if that was all it needed id say fine and just put the money out (have to pay for quality) but thats not all the bike needs so i cant go that route. on the other hand, i dont want to give up on the project because i know how beautiful it would turn out. not to mention its a FREAKIN' KTM!!! what im getting at is does anyone have or maybe knows someone who might have a cylinder jug for a 2012 150sx? ive checked ebay, letgo, craigslist and all of the typical for sale sites... please if anyone knows ANYTHING/ ANYONE please reach out. im almost tempted to say id even take a head from a 125sx? facebook profile: https://www.facebook.com/kevin.okeefe.965
  10. MXGP and MX2 Team Riders Wrap Up Their Pre-Season Racing Activities on a High Note in France February 12, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders have concluded their pre-season racing activities in style during the 2017 edition of the Lacapelle Marival International Motocross event in France, collecting three top three moto results. With the hard-packed circuit in the south of France hosting the final international race before the start of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship, the event proved to be the ideal warm-up for the 19-round-long season that kicks off on February 25. Enjoying a good day of racing in front of his home fans, Gautier Paulin delivered strong performances in each of the three motos he contested. In his first race on hard-packed terrain the FC 450 mounted Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider put in a strong opening moto performance to finish third. Wrapping up the event with seventh in moto two and 10th in the Superfinal, Gautier now looks forward to the start of the MXGP season in two weeks’ time. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Max Nagl landed in Lacapelle Marival with one goal in mind – to make the most of his time on the French track and to test different bike settings in real racing conditions. Wrapping up the event with 9/15/11 results the German rider ended the day satisfied with his progress and speed. Working hard to improve some minor details, Max Anstie’s highlight for the day was a seventh place result during the opening MX1 moto. Continuing to build his speed aboard his new FC 450 machine, the young Brit will be looking for a strong MXGP class debut in Qatar. Continuing to impress aboard his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing FC 250 machine, Thomas Kjer-Olsen secured a sixth and a third during the two MX2 motos to earn an impressive podium result with third overall in the 250cc class. Finishing ninth overall in the combined MX1/MX2 Superfinal the Dane was the third fastest MX2 rider during the day’s final race. Conrad Mewse rounded out his participation at the event with fourth overall in MX2 class behind teammate Kjer-Olsen. Getting a great start in moto one the British youngster brought his FC 250 home in third. Despite missing the start in moto two, Conrad battled his way from 13th at the end of lap one to eighth at the chequered flag. Mewse’s Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammate Thomas Covington showed some great speed in France. Third out of the gate in the opening moto, the American suffered a few small mistakes that dropped him to seventh. Finding himself in the provisional runner-up spot in moto two, Thomas went on to take the lead of the race before further mistakes dropped him to fourth. He placed fifth overall in the MX2 class. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team riders will now head to Qatar for the start of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship on February 25/26. Gautier Paulin: “It was good to race in front of my home fans. It was my first race in hard-packed terrain aboard the FC 450 and I felt we made some great progress. My highlight for the day was the opening MX1 moto, where I managed to get third. Overall, what I definitely take out of this race is the fact that now I feel a lot more confident to push in any kind of condition on my new bike. All the members of the team have been giving their best since day one and now I’m a lot more familiar with the bike. The MXGP season that starts in two weeks will be a long one. The goal is to take one moto at a time and push hard to reach the top.” Max Nagl: “This weekend we decided to focus on testing different race set-ups without overly stressing ourselves about the results in any of the motos. Our goal was to try new things and see what suits us the most. I’m really happy that we managed to find a really good set-up that we tried during the combined MX1/MX2 Superfinal. Most probably this will be our base set-up for the opening round of the MXGP series in two weeks’ time. The plan now is to take some time off the bike so that both physically and mentally I’m 100% ready for the Qatar GP.” Max Anstie: “It might not have been the perfect day for me, but overall I felt we took some more steps in the right direction. My goal for the weekend was to try new things with the bike and with my riding on the big FC 450, and I’m glad everything worked well. It was a great training event and a good way to wrap up our pre-season preparations before Qatar. With the racing now done, we have two weeks to perfect some small details. The work never stops so we will try to make the most of the time left to get the best out of the bike and myself before the start of the MXGP season.” Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It was a good day and a great event. We got two good starts and that was very important. Overall, I’m happy I showed once again I can battle for the top. In the opening moto I got a good start but had a small crash in the back part of the track that dropped me to 10th. I got back on the bike and started passing people to finish sixth. Considering the track was one-lined, I think it was great I could make passes. Then in moto two I had another good start and battled my way to third at the chequered flag. We will continue working hard and I’m really looking forward to the start of the World Championship in Qatar.” Conrad Mewse: “I felt good on my bike this weekend. All the hard work during the winter is slowly paying off. I know the speed is there and I now need to work on some small details such as my starts. I had a good jump out of the gate in the opening moto and pushed hard to end third. I missed the start in moto two and had to work my way from outside the top 10 to eighth. I feel that we made some good progress in that kind of hard-packed terrain. We still need to work more in fine-tuning our set-up and suspension, but we now have a good base for the first GP of the season in Qatar.” Thomas Covington: “I’m satisfied with the progress made this weekend. Despite not having fully recovered from my sickness I raced two strong motos to get 7/4. Unfortunately, in the Superfinal I felt the effects of my illness and decided not to take any unnecessary risks. My speed was good during the whole day and I even managed to lead the second MX2 moto for a while, before some small mistakes dropped me to fourth. It was another good test for all of us and now we will be focusing on doing the best we can to start the World Championship with a good overall result in Qatar.” Download all high-resolution pictures here.
