Enduro | Offroad
Enduro is a sport that lies at the heart of KTM. Apart from SuperEnduro, which is held indoors, the word ‘Enduro’ is connected with offroad races that require skill and endurance over varying terrain.
This season reigning FIM Enduro2 World Champion Josep Garcia will defend his title along with battling for his main goal of taking the overall EnduroGP and category having finished runner-up last year. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider also enjoyed the outright overall victory in the International Six Days Enduro in 2021, a feat he will be looking to repeat again aboard his KTM 350 EXC-F.
Teammate Manuel Lettenbichler will race in the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, aiming to go one better than his runner-up finish last year – a season in which he won the notoriously challenging Red Bull Romaniacs event for the third consecutive time. The series has evolved from the WESS Enduro World Championship and features famous races around the world – continuing the ethos of WESS but now under FIM regulation.
These two championships are the perfect platform for KTM to put its Enduro machinery to the ultimate test as the proving ground for development of its READY TO RACE production models. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team also competes in the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship, and a number of national enduro events.
In the USA the FMF KTM Factory Racing Team has collected many prestigious offroad accolades over the years. In 2022, three KTM riders will proudly defend their No. 1 plates from coast to coast as three first-time champions emerged in 2021 with Ben Kelley clinching the GNCC title, Dante Oliveira taking the WORCS title – along with his second NGPC title – and Trystan Hart emerging victorious in the AMA Extreme Championship. They are joined by Josh Toth in both east coast championships and Taylor Robert, a three-time WORCS champion, former ISDE overall Champion and X-Games gold medalist, who will contest the west coast series.
