JESS PETTIS SHOWS STRENGTH AND COMES AWAY WITH 2ND OVERALL IN THE 450 MX TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP; JACOB PICCOLO WINS FIRST EVER 250 PRO CHAMPIONSHIP

View Profile

WALTON, ON – The KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team riders Jess Pettis and Cole Thompson wrapped up the MX Tour portion of the 2021 Triple Crown Series in Walton and despite having his rookie season championship run end, it was a show of strength for Pettis and the team. KTM supported rider Jacob Piccolo raced well under pressure and clinched the 250 Pro Class Championship. Jacob fought valiantly to pick up those tough moto wins when it mattered most this season and is coming home with his first ever Pro championship. Jacob adds his name alongside the list of riders to win the 250 Pro Class Championship aboard a KTM 250 SX-F like Jess Pettis, Kaven Benoit & Cole Thompson.

Jacob Piccolo, KTM Supported 250 Rider: “I’m super stoked to get the 250 Pro Championship this year. A lot of hard work in the off-season put into this and it feels good for it to all pay off. I had a great bike this year and the points were close all season long so it was a tough battle but it was a good season. Thank you to Al Dyck / SKY Racing who have been part of this program as well.”

Lining up in Moto 1, Pettis secured a top-three position off the start. He settled into a comfortable fifth early on and despite racing through injury, Pettis dug deep to salvage fifth and took home the second overall position in points in his rookie season in the 450 Pro class. In Moto 1, it was Thompson who jetted off the line to capture the holeshot aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION led the first three laps of the race. He got passed early on but continued to fight all the way to the checkers, finishing a close second in the first moto.

Pettis, on a whim, decided to line up again for Moto 2 where he had a favorable second place start. He decided not to push the envelope as he settled into a fifth-place position for the rest of the race, coming away with fifth overall on the day. With that, Pettis was able to maintain second-place in the MX Tour Championship with three overall-wins in 2021.

Jess Pettis, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “This last round at Walton was a lot of unexpected for me. With my hard crash and injuries from the previous round, I was unsure if I could ride but I was able to salvage 5-5 on the day and second in the championship. It was a dig-deep kind of day and I’m sure my body will be very sore but I’m happy with the decision. Massive thanks to my team and everyone for working so hard all season long for me."

It was Thompson who jetted off the line in Moto 1 to capture the holeshot aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION and he led the first three laps of the race. He got passed early on but continued to fight all the way to the checkers, finishing a close second in the first moto. In Moto 2, Thompson got off to a fifth place start and immediately worked his way into second by lap four. He made an early charge toward the lead battle, but he was in a race of his own to finish second in the moto and second overall for the day.

Cole Thompson, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “It was good to finish the season with a podium, especially after struggling so much the previous race. The bike was amazing and I felt really comfortable with the track, so now it’s time to start my preparation to defend my SX championship in two weeks.”

Jean-Sebastien Roy, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team Manager: “It was an amazing weekend for us at KTM! We expected Cole to do well at Walton and he was up to the challenge, he rode amazingly strong to finish the season on a positive note with a second place. It was a heck of a turnaround for Jess, the original plan was to have him sign autographs and hang out for the last round of the Canadian Amateur Nationals, but he ended up going on the line for the first moto and the rest is history. We weren’t expecting it, but it was a great ending to the season for him. KTM Supported rider Jacob Piccolo rode amazing under tremendous pressure and was able to walk away with a 250 Pro Championship. It’s a huge accomplishment for him and his team, congratulations to Jacob for getting it done! ”

WMX Class – KTM Supported racer Eve Brodeur concluded the series with a perfect season, claiming the Thor WMX Championship in a dominant fashion. She was joined atop the podium at Walton by KTM riders Sarah-Kim Villeneuve in second and Malia Garant in third for an all-orange podium sweep once again.

WALTON Amateur TransCan – KTM Supported racer & Orange Brigade rider Sebastien Racine also took the 250 Intermediate & Schoolboy 2 Championship at the Walton Amateur TransCan during the week of amateur racing leading up to the Pro National.

View Profile

OTTAWA, ON – KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team’s Jess Pettis returned to the top of the podium on Sunday with his second overall victory of the season at Sand Del Lee. Teammate Cole Thompson battled up front in both motos to secure a steady fourth overall with a 4-4 finish on the day.

In Moto 1, Pettis immediately put on the charge to secure the holeshot and early lead aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. He maintained a good pace out front for the first 13 laps before he was joined by another rider for the lead battle late in the race. Pettis was eventually overtaken for the lead with four laps to go and he finished strong in second. Thompson, who battled inside the top-three for the first half of the race, finished just off the podium in fourth. 

In Moto 2, Pettis once again commanded the lead with a powerful holeshot and the 450 Class rookie sustained a pace that couldn’t be matched throughout the 18-lap race. Leading from start to finish, Pettis capped off the day with his fourth moto-win of the season on the way to claiming the overall victory at Round 5. 

Jess Pettis, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “I’m really happy with this weekend at Sand Del Lee. I was able to grab both holeshots and get 2-1 moto results for first overall. I’ll continue to work hard and fight for this championship until the very end.” 

Thompson started just outside the top-five in Moto 2 and he put his head down to charge up to third halfway through the race. He fought hard in the final laps to ultimately come away with a fourth-place finish in the second moto and fourth overall on the day.

Cole Thompson, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “Tough race again this weekend missing out on the podium. I’m working hard to get things turned around during the week, it just hasn’t all clicked yet at the races. Massive thank you to the entire team for all their efforts and good job to my teammate on getting the win.” 

Jean-Sebastien Roy, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team Manager“Another great weekend for our team, Jess won the overall of the day with a tie finish and KTM supported rider Jacob Piccolo finished a strong second place and is now sitting on top of the list for the championship where he is tied for first place. Another KTM supported rider, Sebastien Racine, began his Pro debut in the 250 Pro class and finished both motos in 5th place.”

WMX Class – It was a KTM podium-sweep in the THOR WMX division at Sand Del Lee, with KTM Supported racer Eve Brodeur at the helm with another 1-1 victory. KTM rider Sarah-Kim Villeneuve finished strong in second with 2-2 moto scores, and Malia Garant rounded out the podium with 3-3 finishes aboard her KTM. 

Orange Brigade – KTM Orange Brigade rider Jacob Piccolo put forth a consistent ride in the 250 Pro class, claiming a pair of 3-2 podium finishes to secure second overall on the day. After five rounds, Piccolo continues to fight for the championship as he sits tied for the top spot.

View Profile

COURTLAND, ON – The KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team got right back into racing over the weekend with Rounds 3 and 4 of the 2021 Triple Crown Series MX Tour taking place at Gopher Dunes. Team rider Jess Pettis highlighted the team’s efforts with a pair of solid podium finishes on both days, including a moto-win on Sunday; while Cole Thompson remained steady inside the top-five all weekend long.

On Saturday, it was a one-moto format for the third round and Pettis found himself in the lead battle right away. Leading laps and showing great speed, the 450 Class rookie raced his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION straight to the podium and third overall on the day. His teammate, Thompson, followed suit with good battles up front, scoring a solid fourth overall on the day. 

The KTM duo returned to racing once again on Sunday for Round 4, picking up where they left off with some intense racing up front. It was Pettis who assumed the lead right away in Moto 1 and he mixed it up inside the top-three before finishing strong with the moto-win. Following it up with a second-place finish in Moto 2, Pettis solidified second overall on day two. Thompson had a slower start to the day, finishing sixth in moto one but he rallied back to land just outside the podium in moto two. With 6-4 moto finishes, Thompson claimed a top-five overall to round out the weekend.

Halfway through the series, Pettis sits only one point away from the championship lead in the 450 Pro Class. 

Jess Pettis, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “I struggled to find comfort on Saturday, but I was able to grab a third overall on the day and on Sunday, the team and I worked hard to make me more comfortable. The track was very challenging. I was able to get 1-2 moto scores for second overall. I am one point away from the championship lead and I’m happy with the position I’m in leading into next weekend at San Del Lee.”

With one podium finish behind him in the first four rounds, Thompson now sits fourth overall in the championship standings with plenty of racing left to go. 

Cole Thompson, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “It was a tough weekend in the sand, I wasn’t on-pace both days. Thanks to my team for everything, time to focus on next weekend and be better.”

Jean-Sebastien Roy, KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team Manager“I’m happy our guys battled through the weekend at Gopher Dunes.  We all know this track is different from a lot of other tracks and anything can happen out there. Jess and Cole have showed some strong stamina during the weekend and came away with podium finishes and in a good point position for the championship. We’re looking forward to San Del Lee next weekend where both riders have performed well in the past.” 

WMX Class – KTM Supported racer Eve Brodeur continued her winning streak in the WMX Class with a sweeping 1-1 victory on the day, followed by KTM rider Sarah-Kim Villeneuve putting in a strong 2-2 finish in the class.

KTM CANADA RED BULL THOR RACE TEAM WRAPS UP WALTON DOUBLE HEADER WITH A 1-2 PODIUM FINISH IN THE 450 CLASS

View Profile

WALTON, Ontario – The KTM Canada Red Bull THOR Race Team had a strong start to the 2021 Triple Crown Series, capping off an exciting double-header weekend at Walton with a powerful finish in the 450 class. With rookie Jess Pettis on top claiming his first-career 450 win on Sunday and getting his first-ever 450 Class Red Plate going into next weekend, teammate Cole Thompson backed it up with a solid runner-up finish, giving the team a positive outlook after the first two rounds of racing.

Officially debuting in Round 1 of the premier class aboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION on Friday, Jess Pettis was eager to return to racing with a new challenge on his plate. Pettis eased his way back in having been out of the racing circuit due to a knee injury in the beginning of 2021 and finished with a strong second place. His consistency and speed earned him a second place overall to kick off the season. Cole Thompson was not far behind finishing the day with a 4-4 for 4th overall of the day. 

Round 2 of racing resumed on Sunday with a three-moto format and Pettis maintained a consistent pace throughout the day. Claiming a strong 3rd place in moto one, the 450-rookie turned it up a notch in the final two motos with an impressive 1-1 finishes to solidify his presence in the premier class being followed closely by teammate Cole Thompson who finished the day with a solid 2nd overall.

Jess Pettis, KTM Canada – Red Bull – THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “I’m really happy with how the first two rounds went at Walton. I started out with consistent podium results on Friday to get second overall at my first 450 race after a long injury with my knee during the winter time. Round 2 on Sunday went really well – I qualified first but I didn’t feel too comfortable in the first moto so we made a few small changes. Then I went 1-1 in the last two motos to get my first overall on a 450 and getting the red plate leading into Gopher Dunes next weekend. I’m really excited and hopefully we can keep this rolling.” 

It was a solid entrance into the 2021 season for Cole Thompson, who came away with a consistent set of finishes as well. Thompson put himself in a favorable position from the get-go as he battled up front in both motos on Friday. Leading a few laps in the second moto, Thompson fought hard to ultimately come away with 4-4 finishes at Round 1. 

On Sunday, Thompson once again found himself in the lead battle during all three races and he maintained a consistent performance to claim 2-2-2 finishes across the board. Concluding the weekend with solid finishes of fourth and second overall, Thompson sits third in the early championship standings. 

Cole Thompson, KTM Canada – Red Bull – THOR Race Team 450 Rider: “Second overall today and a 1-2 finish for the team. I’m happy to be in the mix for wins, I just need to keep pushing forward to be better every moto. I want to give a huge thanks to my entire team for their full effort every day, let’s keep this ball rolling into next weekend. “

Jean-Sebastien Roy, KTM Canada – Red Bull – THOR Race Team Manager“It was an amazing first weekend for the series. The whole team did an incredible job getting the season started right and of course, Cole and Jess put the hammer down with the results on the track. Having two guys on the podium is what we have been looking for. Moving into the next round, the team is looking to put their fitness to the test in the deep sand of Gopher Dunes.” 

WMX Class – KTM Supported racer Eve Brodeur had a great start to the 2021 series as she swept the first two motos of the Thor WMX class to claim the overall victory on Sunday. Additionally, Brodeur put in a solid performance on Friday in the 250 Pro class, where she scored 26th overall at the season opener.

Orange Brigade – KTM Orange Brigade rider Jacob Piccolo had a standout performance at the opening weekend, managing two consistent podium finishes in the 250 Pro overall. Piccolo started off strong with 3rd overall on Friday and he carried that momentum into Sunday’s race as he claimed a moto win to start day and finished 3rd overall.

MADD MOOSE PODIUM (1)

TRYSTAN HART CHARGES HIS WAY TO VICTORY AT THE MADD MOOSE HARD ENDURO

View Profile

MARQUETTE, Mich. – The 2021 AMA Extreme Championship headed east for the third round of its eastern series and FMF KTM Factory Racing Team’s Trystan Hart put forth a solid panel of 1-2-1 moto scores to come away with the overall win at the Madd Moose Hard Enduro. Teammate Taylor Robert maintained a consistent running throughout the day, rounding out the top-five overall with 4-5-5 finishes. 

It was once again a head-to-head showdown between Hart and his championship rival Cody Webb, as both riders dueled over the course of the three-moto format. It was Hart who charged out of the gate in race one, racing his KTM 300 XC-W TPI to a convincing victory. In race two, Webb struck back but it wasn’t without a fight from Hart, who ultimately finished 10 seconds behind for second. Race three was a winner-take-all and Hart proved to be the stronger rider on the day as he bested Webb by a 10 second margin, claiming the race three win and overall victory in Michigan. After three rounds, Hart continues to lead the way in the EEC point standings.

Trystan Hart: “It was an amazing day! I won the first moto and Cody won the second moto so it was do or die heading into the final moto. Cody pressured me the whole moto but ultimately I withstood it and secured the win.”

For Robert, consistency was key as he struggled to put forth a mistake-free performance in the tight terrain. In race one, he powered his KTM 300 XC-W TPI to a good start and kept a solid pace to finish fourth. He capped off the day with a pair of fifth-place finishes in races two and three, which gave him a top-five overall for the day.

Taylor Robert: “All-in-all, it was a fun race and I felt like I did the best I could. I was starting up front pretty much every time but I had little mistakes here and there. We’ll try to get them back at the next one.”

Next Race: Round 4 WEC – June 19 – Silver Mountain Extreme in Kellogg, Idaho

KTM RED BULL THOR FACTORY RACING’S COLE THOMPSON MAKES BIG RETURN TO SX TOUR AS 450 PRO POINTS LEADER FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL DOUBLE HEADER WEEKEND AT GOPHER DUNES

View Profile

COURTLAND, ON – KTM Red Bull THOR Factory Race Team’s Cole Thompson made a statement return back to racing over the weekend with impressive first and third overall finishes at the 2020 Triple Crown Series SX Tour opener at Gopher Dunes. Sweeping both Main Events on Friday and following it up on Saturday with a pair of seconds to emerge with third overall, Thompson has assumed control of the 450 Pro championship points with two rounds remaining.

With a double header race weekend taking place at Gopher Dunes, Friday served as the opening round of the SX Tour and Round 2 followed closely behind on Saturday. After being off the bike for a month, Thompson was READY TO RACE his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION and it showed as he went on to sweep the opening round with 1-1 Main Event finishes. It wasn’t without contest, though, as Thompson diced back-and-forth with Dylan Wright in the first race before solidifying the top position with five laps to go. In Main Event two, Thompson got out front early on and led all 21 laps to seal up a successful first night under the lights.

On night two, Thompson once again assumed the early lead in both Main Events but this time the cards weren’t in his favor as he dropped into second halfway through both races. With a good number of laps led throughout the night, Thompson was able to maintain a consistent pace to finish 2-2 in the Main Events and secure third overall at Round 2. With two rounds remaining in the SX Tour, Thompson holds a seven-point lead in the championship.

Cole Thompson, KTM Red Bull Thor Factory 450 Rider: “It was a great first weekend back with the team. I was able to win both Main Events on night one and then a consistent 2-2 for night two. I’m happy to be back at the races, happy to have the points lead and obviously with two rounds to go, I want to come out swinging and hopefully clinch this championship next weekend.”

 

Jean-Sebastien Roy, KTM Red Bull Thor Factory Team Manager: “I’m very pumped for Cole and his win on Friday night. On Saturday, he got a bad start in the Main Event but he rode really good and was the fastest guy. It’s positive for him to be back and hopefully finish the season strong next weekend at the last round.”

Orange Brigade – KTM Orange Brigade rider Sebastien Racine once again had a clean sweep in the amateur division taking the win in the 250 Intermediate, Open Intermediate and Cash Class.
