KTM Canada announces details for its race contingency support program for the 2023 race season. Standing behind its READY TO RACE commitment, KTM is once again offering more than $400,000 in race rewards for amateur and professional racers at over 20 series across the country.
The KTM Canada Red Bull Race Team has aligned with FLY Racing ahead of the 2023 Triple Crown Series, in which it will field a dynamic three-rider roster in Jess Pettis, defending 250 Pro class champion Ryder McNabb and the returning Kaven Benoit.
At 25 years of age, Pettis will enter as KTM's sole team rider in the 450 class onboard the 2023 KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION this season, motivated to rebound after an injury-affected past season and with his sights firmly set on the number one plate. He's energized by the striking new look with FLY Racing and the challenge that lies ahead in a bid for a maiden premier class crown.
Jess Pettis, KTM Canada Red Bull Race Team 450 Rider: “I’m really stoked to be working with FLY. The gear is awesome and we’ll look fresh all season. I’m feeling really healthy and can’t wait to go racing.”
The KTM Group’s racing and production alliance with high quality lubricant firm, Motorex, will reach two decades of longevity in 2023. A renewed deal between Europe’s largest motorcycle manufacturer and the Swiss specialists will continue to see Motorex as the ‘first fill’ choice for the KTM Group’s brands as well as the principal option in various world championship race disciplines.
