RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S TOM VIALLE CROWNED 2024 250SX EAST AMA SUPERCROSS CHAMPION

Ver Perfil

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Tom Vialle has clinched the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in the 250SX East division following tonight's title-deciding final round of the season in Salt Lake City.

At 23 years of age, Vialle adds his maiden American Supercross title onboard the KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the pair of MX2 World Championships that he earned in 2020 and 2022, respectively. It further establishes him as one of the sport's emerging superstars on an international scale with his success in both Europe and the United States.

Upon joining Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2019, a successful rookie term in the MX2 World Championship saw the Frenchman race to fourth position in the point standings, before he went on to be crowned the MX2 World Champion at his second attempt the following year in 2020. After placing third in 2021, he spectacularly regained the crown at the finale.

Originally from Avignon, France, Vialle then moved to the U.S. ahead of the 2023 season, in which he made a highly-anticipated AMA Supercross debut and gained immense experience in the stadiums on his way to P8 in the final 250SX East standings.

Vialle also finished sixth overall in the 250MX category of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship – claiming a breakout first victory at Southwick – as part of a wider SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) campaign, where he was eventually ranked eighth in the 250SMX Class at the conclusion of the hybrid-type SMX Finals Series.

Building upon the vast knowledge that he picked up one year ago, Vialle has taken his career to new heights in 2024, standing on the AMA Supercross podium for the first time in Arlington's second round of the season before taking elusive back-to-back 250SX Main Event wins in Daytona and Birmingham.

Tom continued that podium form with a runner-up result in Indianapolis, followed by third in both Foxborough and Nashville, and then was second again in Philadelphia's penultimate round. Those finishes set him up with an instrumental 15-point advantage entering Salt Lake City's ninth and final race of the eastern region.

A calculated eighth-place finish was enough to seal Vialle the title tonight in the second 250SX East/West Showdown of the year, marking Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's first in the 250SX category since compatriot Marvin Musquin won the eastern regional title victory in 2015. Vialle will now focus on the upcoming AMA Pro Motocross Championship, which commences in Pala, California, on Saturday, May 25th.

Tom Vialle: "That's pretty amazing, to learn one year and then win this title in the second year. After I won Daytona and made it two in a row in Birmingham, I knew I could fight for the title. I made it to the end and I felt great all season. Going into Supercross this year, I enjoyed it even more and am very happy to win the championship. It's only my second year here and feel like I have a lot to learn, am still learning every race, but I'm really excited now to head outdoors in two weeks at Pala. Thank you to everybody that has been behind us for this championship."

Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: "Starting at the first race when Tom wrecked in the first turn and finished 18th, I literally thought the season was over and it was just going to be another learning year for him. And then he found his groove, started winning a couple of races, and was finishing on the podium, getting better and better – the next thing we knew, we were in the lead. Daytona was a special one for us, always tough to win, and I was really proud of him there. We had the points lead coming into the final round and I was quite confident until practice today, but then I felt a little bit nervous as the day went on because it seemed like some of the stress was maybe getting to Tom a little bit. I have to say, he handled himself really well in the Main Event, put himself in a good position, and finished where he needed to finish. I'm super proud, it's been a long time since we've won a 250 title and it feels really, really good."

Alongside Vialle in the 250SX East/West Showdown was rookie Julien Beaumer, who was third quickest in Qualifying on the western region and then placed eighth in his Heat race. Unfortunately, he was credited 22nd in the Main Event after a crash and was ultimately positioned seventh in the final 250SX West Championship standings.

Julien Beaumer: "It was a rough night for me tonight. Qualifying and everything was good, but unfortunately, there was nowhere for me to go and I had a collision with Seth Hammaker in the Main. I'm 100 percent healthy and am ready to go into the outdoors."

Salt Lake City also saw Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Chase Sexton stand on the top step of the 450SX Main Event podium after delivering a commanding performance to cap off the season on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. Last year's 450SX Champion was fastest in Qualifying and then won Heat 2 of the night, before going on to take victory by 3.228s at Rice-Eccles Stadium this evening. As a result, Sexton placed third in the championship with two victories to his credit in 2024.

Chase Sexton: "Salt Lake was a really good day for me – fastest qualifier, won the Heat, and the Main. I felt a lot more like myself in the last three races, because it's been a long year, but I've learned a lot and the team stuck by me, so I'm looking forward to outdoors and building off this. This is a good momentum builder and what I needed going into the Pro Motocross series, so I'm pretty confident and am ready to keep getting better."

CHASE SEXTON FIGHTS HARD FOR EIGHTH IN PENULTIMATE ROUND OF SUPERCROSS

Ver Perfil

Reigning AMA Supercross Champion Chase Sexton fought hard to finish eighth in the penultimate round of the 2024 season in Denver tonight, recovering from a first turn incident for position, as Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammate Julien Beaumer took a top 10 result in the 250SX West Main Event.

Sexton set the third-fastest lap in qualifying and placed second in Heat 2 onboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, but his night came unstuck with an early crash in the premier class 450SX Main Event. He clawed his way back to as high as fifth until another fall bumped him back down the order, before he went on to finish P8 – a result that has him tied on points for third in the standings with a single round remaining.

Chase Sexton: "Denver, not a great Main Event, but we had a pretty solid day up until that point. I fell in the first turn, came from pretty much last to fifth and then fell again, so I rode it in from there for eighth. I pretty much have every piece of the puzzle, so I just have to put them together now, and that's encouraging for us at least heading into the final round next weekend."

250SX West rookie Beaumer continued to build experience in Round 9 of the 250SX West division. He was fifth on combined times at the conclusion of qualifying and then raced to third position in Heat 2 of the afternoon, before clawing his way to 10th in the Main Event riding the KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

The teenager was comfortably inside the top 10 across the opening laps before a mishap dropped him to the rear of the pack, but he managed to make his way back to P10 by the time the checkered flag flew. As a result, he retains sixth in the championship standings, now within three points of the top five.

Julien Beaumer: "It was a good day overall, probably my best riding of the season, and I'm happy with that. Unfortunately I got landed on early in the Main Event and started from way back at that point, but came back to 10th. I'm happy with my riding, even if the result doesn't show, so we will go back to work this week and be ready for Salt Lake."

CHASE SEXTON AND TOM VIALLE CHARGE TO SECOND IN PHILADELPHIA SUPERCROSS

Ver Perfil

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammates Chase Sexton and Tom Vialle both delivered important second-place finishes in Philadelphia's 15th round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship. For Vialle, his result enabled him to extend his advantage in the 250SX East standings with a single round remaining in the eastern region.

Sexton was back on track aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION this weekend, fifth on the time sheets at the conclusion of Qualifying and then racing through the pack to claim sixth in Heat 2. The defending 450SX Champion also put on a charge in the Main Event from fifth after lap one for an eventual P2 result, currently positioned fourth in the point standings.

Chase Sexton: "Philadelphia was a good round for me, we're happy with second and I felt like it was a strong ride in the end. I didn't get a good start, but was able to make my way through the pack and had some really good laps. Tonight, I had a little bit more of my normal speed, and I haven't really had that all year, so I feel like I'm coming into form in these final races of the series. There's been a lot of learning this year, I feel like I've grown a lot and it's made me better – we'll keep clicking these things off and keep getting better with the team."

Philadelphia saw Vialle reunited with the 250SX East red plate as the series leader and he was instantly on the pace this morning, setting the benchmark in Qualifying 1 on his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. The Frenchman ended up third on combined times and then scored second in Heat 2, setting him up strongly for the Main Event.

Two-time MX2 World Champion Vialle was buried in 10th position at the end of the opening lap, but was spectacular on his way to second position as the checkered flag flew – climbing to within 1.111s at race's end. As a result of his seventh-consecutive podium, he will carry a 15-point lead into the Supercross Finals at Salt Lake City in two weeks' time.

Tom Vialle: "It was a good race tonight. I saw Haiden [Deegan] right behind me and trying to push – together we actually came back from pretty far and to the front. The track was pretty gnarly again, we passed a lot of guys in that Main Event, and it was stressful at times, but I pushed to the very end and it was a good result to finish second here in Philadelphia. Now we will look ahead to Salt Lake City and I am excited to get to the final round of the season."

    NASHVILLE SHOWDOWN PODIUM SEES TOM VIALLE TAKE CHARGE IN 250SX EAST

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Tom Vialle reclaimed the 250SX East red plate following a third-place finish in the 250SX East/West Showdown at Nashville, putting him in control of the points lead with two rounds remaining in the eastern region.

    A convincing third-place result on the podium in the opening Showdown of the year saw Frenchman Vialle take charge of the series in class at Nissan Stadium, building a 13-point advantage. The double MX2 World Champion was fastest in 250SX East qualifying this afternoon and then posted a Heat race victory, before putting in a consistent performance on his way to P3 in the Main Event riding the KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    Tom Vialle: "To finish third overall and first on my coast, it was a really good race for me. I tried to stay focused on my own race and had a good pace. The track was pretty sketchy, so you really had to concentrate, and I actually liked it a lot today – I felt like my riding was good all day. Two races to go and we're getting closer to the end! I really look forward to the next two races."

    For teammate Julien Beaumer, the 250SX West rookie was a promising fifth-fastest in qualifying, but had to transfer through to the Main Event via P1 in the LCQ, and then he overcame further adversity to claim ninth tonight. It was a result that saw him maintain sixth in the point standings while continuing to gain important race mileage in his first-career Showdown appearance.

    Julien Beaumer: "It was a pretty good night here in Nashville. I made it hard on myself by going through the LCQ and then the Main Event was tough, obviously not having the best gate pick. I got off to a decent start, but then got pushed really far out and was a long way back. I made a good charge up to ninth, and I am happy with my riding tonight, so I'm going to go back to work and get ready for Denver."

    Unfortunately for defending 450SX Champion Chase Sexton, after qualifying fourth and finishing third in Heat 1 equipped with his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider was ruled of contention with a heavy crash on lap five of the Main Event. He has since been cleared of any major injury after being evaluated and intends to race-on at the Philadelphia round next Saturday.

    Chase Sexton: "Crashed out tonight. A stone cracked my throttle body and the throttle got stuck off of that single-single, which ended my night. Bummer, but nothing's broken, and we'll bounce back in Philadelphia."

    RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING EXTENDS AARON PLESSINGER CONTRACT INTO 2025 SEASON

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing has re-signed fan favorite Aaron Plessinger for the 2025 SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) season, which will continue to include the AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross Championships ahead of the SMX Finals Series.

    At 28 years of age, Plessinger is currently in the prime of his premier class career, to remain equipped with the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into next year and to continue the rapid progression that he and the team had achieved in 450SX this season, prior to him being injured in Round 13 at Foxborough.

    'The Cowboy' has been in spectacular form during 2024, holding the red plate for multiple rounds after picking up his first-career 450SX victory in San Diego, and then going on to claim additional podium finishes at the Anaheim 2 Triple Crown and in Arlington. He will unfortunately miss the final four rounds of Supercross with a fractured elbow, but is expecting to be READY TO RACE when the gates drop on the AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Pala, California, on May 25th.

    Plessinger first joined Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2022, gaining momentum in 2023 by finishing third in the final 450MX standings and fifth position in the inaugural 450SMX Championship, prior to his breakout campaign this year.

    Aaron Plessinger: "I'm really excited to be staying with Red Bull KTM through 2025. It is an awesome team and I think we're going to do some big things together in the future – even bigger and better than what we've achieved so far. I couldn't be more stoked to be staying within this family and building upon where we're at, the level that we have been able to reach this season. For this year we made some major changes in the pre-season and really haven't changed the bike at all since, which has really, really worked out in our favor. I've won my first Supercross Main Event, have gotten three podiums in total, and something's clicked for us this year. This is the most enjoyment I've had in my entire 450 career and I'm just enjoying the ride, which is rare, and I'm very fortunate. I'm stoked to be back for 2025, so hope we keep progressing and I will be doing my best to perform to the level that we aim to once I am able to line up again outdoors. I'll keep riding my heart out when I'm back from injury and am really blessed to be staying with the crew."

    Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: "We are really pleased to have Aaron back on the team for 2025 – he is an asset to our team from so many different aspects, from his personality to his riding, and his results. Since joining our team in 2021 he has continued his progression each year and this 2024 season we have had our best yet with him. Once he returns, we hope to continue this momentum and experience with the team for the rest of the year and into 2025. It is a pleasure to have him on our team and I look forward to next year with him. He's not only good for himself, but he’s good for the other riders too, as well as our team morale, mechanics, and everybody. He is a great person and a real asset to the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team."

    Roger De Coster – Director of Motorsports, North America: "I'm really happy that we were able to extend Aaron’s contract and we are really looking forward to ending this year strong in Pro Motocross before continuing into the 2025 season with him. He is fun to work with, he is great for the team, he’s good for other riders, and he’s good for the crew. We are very happy to have him."

    ELBOW FRACTURE FORCES AARON PLESSINGER OUT OF 2024 AMA SUPERCROSS REMAINDER

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Aaron Plessinger will miss the final four rounds of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, after evaluations this week confirmed he sustained a fractured elbow at Round 13 in Foxborough last Saturday.

    Plessinger was sidelined from the Massachusetts race following a crash in the opening qualifying session. The impact resulted in a fracture of the proximal ulna bone in the elbow region of his arm, which will require an anticipated recovery time of 4-6 weeks.

    Without having to undergo surgery, Plessinger will be targeting a return to competition at Fox Raceway's 2024 Pro Motocross Championship season-opener in Pala, California, on Saturday, May 25th. That race also marks the second stage of the combined SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) series.

    Aaron Plessinger: "I'm really bummed to not be able to finish out the full Supercross season, given I was having my best 450 season yet. Your elbow is just one of those areas of your body that takes a lot of impact when you ride, so I need to do the right thing and let it heal properly with a realistic goal to be back in time for the start of the Pro Motocross series. The good thing is there is no ligament damage, so healing should hopefully be short and sweet. It’s hard to be negative when I’m lucky enough to work with a great team who fully support healing properly, so we should all be back together getting ready for an early start on outdoor preparations in a few weeks' time."

    Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: "Aaron started the season out so well with a race win and multiple podiums and we are just really bummed for him. He's such a great attribute to our team and we have loved watching his growth over the past few seasons, ultimately culminating in his best 450SX season yet. But we all know that accidents happen and this is just a part of racing. The vibe in our semi is never the same without The Cowboy around, but the team will rally together and finish out the Supercross season strong knowing we’ll have Aaron back lifting everyone’s spirits come time for Pro Motocross."

    CHASE SEXTON AND TOM VIALLE EARN FOXBOROUGH SUPERCROSS PODIUM RESULTS

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Chase Sexton made his return to the 450SX podium in Round 13 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship at Foxborough's Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts tonight, finishing just short of the victory after charging hard to a P2 result in the Main Event, as Tom Vialle claimed third position in 250SX East.

    Equipped with the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, defending premier class champion Sexton was fifth on the time sheets following qualifying this afternoon and then raced to P3 in the second heat of the night.

    Sexton was positioned fourth after lap one in the Main Event, quickly climbing into third and then pressuring for second at that point. He managed to make a pass for position on lap 18 and then went to work on challenging for the lead, eventually taking the checkered flag in the runner-up result and now sits third in the standings, 15 points outside of the lead with four rounds to run in 450SX.

    Chase Sexton: "It was definitely hard to pass on this track tonight... I got by Jason [Anderson] early and then I was behind Kenny [Roczen] for a while. It took a lot to set that pass up, trying to get an angle [to make the move]. After that, you couldn't be super-aggressive with how the track was, it was really slippery, so you had to be patient. I saw Cooper [Webb] miss the rut toward the end, so I went to rail the turn and maybe set up a pass, but it didn't come together. I feel like I had good speed tonight, I was decent in the heat and felt like I rode pretty good in the Main Event with how the track was, so we will keep pushing from here into these final races."

    Unfortunately for Sexton's 450SX Class teammate Aaron Plessinger, a crash in this morning's Free Practice session resulted in him being ruled out of action for the remainder of the round, set to undergo further evaluation on his elbow.

    Foxborough saw the 250SX East series resume in its sixth round of the 2024 season, where Frenchman Tom Vialle raced his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to third place on the podium. Vialle was fifth fastest in qualifying and then improved to P3 in Heat 2 of the night, before racing to third position in the Main Event. He retains second in the standings, only four points outside of the lead with three races remaining.

    Tom Vialle: "I always try to do my best no matter what and I think that finishing third was the best I could do tonight, so we are happy to be on the podium again. Next weekend will be really important and the coming races, too. There are only three rounds to go – it is going to be a good fight to the end, for sure."

    The Supercross Futures category was also back on track in Foxborough, where KTM-supported amateur racer Luke Fauser raced to third position on the podium tonight.

    TOP-FIVE SCORES FOR AARON PLESSINGER AND CHASE SEXTON IN ST. LOUIS TRIPLE CROWN

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing pair Aaron Plessinger and Chase Sexton both completed tonight's final Triple Crown round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship season inside the top five on combined scores, with Plessinger fourth and Sexton fifth following an action-filled night of 450SX competition.

    The afternoon saw Plessinger 10th quickest on combined qualifying times, before he established himself at the front of the pack in Race 1 for a third-place score. He continued that form with eighth in the second race after a post-race penalty of two places for jumping on a red cross flag, and then rode his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to sixth in Race 3. That placed him fourth overall, currently sitting P6 in the championship standings.

    Aaron Plessinger: "It was pretty wild tonight! I was struggling throughout the day and then went out in the first one and rode pretty good in the first part actually, snuck by for third. In the second one, I got a pretty bad start, ended up sixth before I was docked, and then in the last one I worked my way forward to sixth. Overall, I felt good in the second two mains, fourth isn't horrible and now we get a weekend off, which I'm excited for."

    After qualifying in fifth position, defending 450SX Champion Chase Sexton's night came undone early when he was caught up in a multi-rider incident on the opening lap of Race 1. That saw him take the checkered flag in P10, before rebounding for fifth in race two following a two-position penalty post-race, also for jumping on the red cross flag. Race 3 saw him battle to third place, which sealed him fifth overall for the round, and he maintains P3 in the points race – now 20 points outside of the lead.

    Chase Sexton: "Overall it was a rough day. I qualified fifth, then crashed in the first Main Event and got 10th, then I went 5-3. I'm ready for a weekend off and we'll come back swinging."

    250SX West rookie Julien Beaumer starred at the beginning of Race 1 by taking over the lead on lap one, before eventually finishing in sixth place. The second race saw him put forward a solid effort for eighth after completing lap one as far back as P15, and then in the final outing he took P7, also earning that same result overall and marking his fourth seventh-place finish in a row. The 17-year-old now sits sixth in the points onboard his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    Julien Beaumer: "Tonight was good, especially because this afternoon wasn't my best in qualifying. I got two out of three good starts, was consistent all night, and didn't make too many mistakes. In the second main I had to fight from the back, but I'm happy with my improvements and look forward to going to the next one."

    RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S CHASE SEXTON P2 IN SEATTLE 450SX THRILLER

    Ver Perfil

    A hard-fought second-place result was earned by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Chase Sexton in Seattle's 11th round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, the defending champion taking the 450SX Main Event down to the wire as the checkered flag flew tonight.

    Sexton was fast from the outset in technical conditions on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION at Lumen Field, fourth fastest in qualifying and then claiming P3 in Heat 1 after leading his share of laps. From there he also led a large portion of the Main Event, fighting all the way to the finish and coming up short of victory by only 0.592s.

    Chase Sexton: "Overall, minus a few mistakes, I rode a really good race and came back towards the end – I had really good speed tonight in these gnarly conditions. This weekend definitely showed signs of improvement. These last two weekends I've built back some of that confidence I've needed, we made some bike changes before the Heat race and it was a direction I've been chasing for a while. I'm thankful for the team I have behind me and we'll keep grinding. We're climbing that ladder."

    Premier class teammate Aaron Plessinger was once again competitive in the soft, rutty conditions, qualifying in eighth position and then claiming second place in Heat 2 following a fast start. He carried that momentum into the Main Event, climbing from 10th position at the end of the opening lap to P4 in the end, only narrowly outside of a podium result.

    Aaron Plessinger: "Seattle was the best race I've had in a month and probably one of the better races I've had this year. In my mind, I should have gotten on the podium. My start was decent and I went backward in the first couple of laps, but started riding well around lap three or four. I got within a second of Jett [Lawrence] at the end, but couldn't quite seal the deal for third. It was good, I needed that result to get back into the flow, and everything's positive, so I'm looking forward to St. Louis and another Triple Crown!"

    Seattle saw the 250SX West region return to action following an extended break, where Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Julien Beaumer continued his rookie season onboard the KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. He was a convincing third in his Heat, and then factored at the front of the pack early in the Main Event, before eventually finishing in seventh position.

    Julien Beaumer: "It was a good day here in Seattle. The morning started out a little rough, just didn't feel like myself, and then I managed to turn it around for the night show. I felt better each time out and then really figured the track out for the Main. I'm not satisfied yet though, I definitely have more in the tank, so we'll get back to work this week and come out swinging in St. Louis."

    RAM Trucks Europe to power Red Bull KTM MXGP drive for a third year

    Ver Perfil

    Power, dependability, and a cool image certainly won’t be in short supply around the MXGP FIM Motocross World Championship Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team in 2024 thanks to a third year of association with RAM Trucks Europe. The title-winning squad and the most prolific crew in the Grand Prix series since 2010 are again partnering with the premium truck and commercial vehicle company.

    The 2024 MXGP series is underway with one of twenty dates already in the books and with the potent four rider roster of Jeffrey Herlings, Andrea Adamo, Liam Everts and Sacha Coenen tackling the MXGP and MX2 categories with KTM SX-F technology. For the third season in a row, RAM are helping with transportation and organization thanks to the provision of two RAM 1500 models, that will also carry special Red Bull KTM wrapping.

    Andrea and Liam have been selected as official brand ambassadors, meaning the trucks – famous for RAM’s brand tagline ‘built to serve’ – will also be available for their personal use and for loading practice bikes and other items essential for their training and non-race-based agendas.

    RAM Trucks was founded 14 years ago and counts on five global production plants, two in the USA, two in South America and another one in western Asia however the real roots of the company stretch back more than a century. RAM are already prevalent in MXGP as both the official car and the title sponsors of the Saturday RAM Qualification Heat race; the sprint carries world championship points for the second year in succession.

    Domenico Gostoli, Head of RAM & Dodge Brands Enlarged Europe: “The common values at the core of this relationship made it natural to continue this fantastic adventure side by side: after two years lived at the highest level and full of success, we are thrilled to renew the partnership with such a strong brand and team. Our communities are bound together by a strong passion and a deep emotional component, always striving for performance to overcome limits. We are ready for another great season together!”

    Robert Jonas, Vice President Offroad Racing: “The powerful RAM 1500s are the ideal vehicles to support our team and riders at events and tracks, and with the wide international base that our MXGP and racing schedule has for 2024. We have seen the reaction of the fans to having a global brand like RAM so closely associated with the team. There is a lot of curiosity and some ‘wow’ factor around the trucks, and this is only part of the reason why we are proud to keep working together for a third year.”

    Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “It almost goes without saying that we are really happy to have RAM onboard with us again. It is a brand and a product that now has a strong link with our MXGP program and also the sport itself. I think it says a lot for the profile of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing that we are the main partner for RAM in the paddock and we’ll try to put that logo on top of the podium as much as possible for the rest of the season.”

    CHASE SEXTON AND TOM VIALLE CLAIM TRIPLE CROWN PODIUMS IN INDIANAPOLIS

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Chase Sexton and Tom Vialle both earned podium results in tonight's 10th round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship at the Indianapolis Triple Crown, with Sexton racing to third overall in 450SX and Vialle finishing second in the 250SX East Main Event.

    Sexton continues to regain complete fitness following his recent hand injury, delivering a trio of consistent performances onboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION in technical track conditions. The defending champion was third in the opening two races and then finished strongly with P2 in the final encounter, landing him third on the podium, and he retains third in the point standings.

    Chase Sexton: "Indy was definitely an improvement again. Qualifying wasn't the hottest for me, but we showed up tonight and overall we're trying to build every weekend. I feel like we're getting better and I'm able to do motos during the week now, so kind of getting back to how I would normally train. We still have some room for improvement, for sure, but we're on the right path and we're going to try to keep inching closer over these coming rounds, give it my best every weekend."

    450SX teammate Aaron Plessinger was solid all night on his way to sixth overall riding his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, going 6-4-9 across the three races. His best ride came in the second moto after running up front early on, and that fourth position was decisive in his final result. Despite going down in the final outing on his way to ninth, Plessinger is positioned seventh in points with seven rounds remaining.

    Aaron Plessinger: "Indianapolis was alright, I was happy with my riding, but the results didn't show. The first one, I got off to a mediocre start and rode around in 11th, but then I started clicking off laps and got up to sixth. Race 2, my start was really good and I went backward, then started riding good around halfway and came back to fourth. The third one was decent early on again, before I tried passing [Jason] Anderson in the whoops, we came together and I went down. I salvaged what I could from there. Overall, it was a decent night, and we'll go back to work to get better in the first few laps!"

    Another standout ride from two-time MX2 World Champion Vialle saw the Frenchman claim his fourth-consecutive podium in 250SX East wearing the red plates this weekend, piecing together 4-3-1 results and second place on the podium. A crash in the first race dented his chances overall, but he managed to rebound with the final race win of the night on his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. He is second in the series, just two points outside of the lead.

    Tom Vialle: "I actually felt really good in the first moto and I had the crash in the whoops, so I was really frustrated. In the second one, I didn't ride the best, and then in the third race I feel like I rode the best that I was able to all day. I'm pretty happy – the track was tough tonight, that's for sure. I really wanted to win the last one, which I did in the end, and we're still in the fight, so that's what matters."

    TOM VIALLE TAKES OVER 250SX EAST RED PLATE AFTER BACK-TO-BACK VICTORIES

    Ver Perfil

    A second-straight 250SX East victory for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Tom Vialle saw him take over the series points lead following Birmingham's ninth round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, as Chase Sexton raced to a top-five finish in the 450SX Class.

    Just one week after his breakout win in Daytona, 23-year-old Vialle rode his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the third-fastest lap-time in qualifying, before storming to P1 in both his Heat and the Main Event. It was a controlled performance from the two-time MX2 World Champion to win by 2.731 seconds, now holding the red plate by a single point following four rounds of the eastern regional series.

    Tom Vialle: "I felt great all day and had a good Heat race to win one of those for the first time. In the Main Event, I didn't have the best start, but I got into P1 and did some good laps early, trying to stay consistent the whole moto. The last four or five laps were great, I loved the track, and it turns out it was pretty good after the weather we had this week. Another win is amazing for me and I'm really happy to have the red plate – I haven't won two races in a row since back in the GPs, so it is a nice feeling. Now we will focus on the next race in Indy."

    450SX saw defending champion Sexton qualify second quickest and then sprint away to a commanding Heat race victory onboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. A late charge in the Main Event eventually resulted in a fourth-place result, keeping his title hopes alive, now 20 points outside of the lead in third position.

    Chase Sexton: "Today was better, even if the result obviously didn't really show it. I feel like my speed and also spark was back today – not where I want it to be, but it's getting better. Heat race win, it took me nine races to get one of those this season, which was good for us tonight, and then in the Main Event, I made a few mistakes and really just lost the race from there. We'll go back to work this week and try to come out swinging for the Triple Crown in Indy."

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammate Aaron Plessinger's day also started out in promising fashion, ninth in qualifying and then claiming fifth in the second 450SX Heat race of the night program. He ran as high as sixth in the Main Event on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, before going on to take the checkered flag in P8.

    Aaron Plessinger: "Alabama was going good, the qualifiers were decent, and then in the Heat race we pushed through for fifth. We made a little bit of a change and went out for the Main Event, but I just rode inconsistent. I was making little mistakes and just wasn't fully in the moment, so ended up eighth. Overall, it was a solid day, we're coming out unscathed and onto the next one! We'll do some homework this week and figure out how to get back up on the podium."

    TOM VIALLE AND RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING WIN DAYTONA 250SX MAIN EVENT

    Ver Perfil

    A spectacular first win in the AMA Supercross Championship was earned by Tom Vialle at Daytona International Speedway tonight, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 250SX East contender breaking through in challenging conditions at the world-famous venue. Round 8 also saw Chase Sexton finish on the podium, claiming second position in the 450SX Main Event.

    Two-time MX2 World Champion Vialle moved to the U.S. full-time last season and raced to a first Supercross podium just one week ago in Arlington, now becoming a race winner onboard his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    The 23-year-old Frenchman qualified third fastest this afternoon and then was second in his Heat Race to keep the momentum going into the night program. Vialle was third at the conclusion of the opening lap of the Main Event and then took charge on lap five, going on to win by 4.997 seconds. As a result, he's moved to within three points of the series lead.

    Tom Vialle: "It was nice to grab the win after having my first podium last week and now my first victory here in Daytona. The track was tough, but I actually feel good. I didn't have a great start, but I passed a lot of guys and it feels so good – it's amazing to win. I want to thank my team and everybody who works with me and supports me. It's amazing to race at Daytona and to get this result!"

    Daytona was also a positive outing for defending 450SX Champion Sexton, qualifying second in the single session held during the afternoon and then racing to second in his Heat despite a crash while challenging for the lead. He factored at the front once again in the Main Event, leading the opening four laps until eventually taking the checkered flag in third position aboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. Sexton has climbed to P3 in the standings, currently 13 points outside of the red plate.

    Chase Sexton: "This is definitely a step in the right direction. I've had a rough couple of weeks with my hand being hurt, but tonight was good. Overall, this is another building block and we'll go back to work this week. I finally got to ride between races this past week with my hand and we're not done yet, just gotta keep building and keep moving forward."

    This weekend marked the most difficult of the season for teammate Aaron Plessinger after he crashed heavily in the Main Event. His day started with promise, setting the eighth quickest lap in qualifying and then scoring P3 in his Heat, however, a crash while running sixth in the Main Event ended his hopes of a strong result, eventually salvaging four points for 18th position. 

    Aaron Plessinger: "Daytona was an interesting one. I was feeling good all day and then the rain came, got a little muddy, and the track was already soft, so that added to it. The Heat was good, caught a flow on my way to third, and then the Main Event was going well also, until it wasn't. I was running around fifth or sixth, hit a soft spot on the face of a jump, and had to bail over the bars. I got up, the bike was all twisted so I pulled in, went back out, and then rolled around to save some points. Overall, we're going into next weekend to race and we're going to push on. I'm looking forward to Birmingham, it's gonna be a good one."

    AARON PLESSINGER AND TOM VIALLE CHARGE TO ARLINGTON SUPERCROSS PODIUMS

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing claimed a pair of podium results in Arlington's Millitary Appreciation Round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, where Aaron Plessinger placed third in the 450SX Main Event and Tom Vialle landed a first-career 250SX East podium.

    Plessinger made his customary recovery from a lowly qualifying position to go on and lead the opening Heat of the night on his way to P2. A strong start in the Main Event placed him in contention and he was able to greet the checkered flag in third position, which also has him ranked third in the current championship standings on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    Aaron Plessinger: "It was another good night for me to be on the podium again here in Arlington. The bike's good and I've been having the most fun so far this year that I've had in a season. It's just been good, everything is coming to me. Like tonight, I was riding around thinking I was pretty much off the podium, before at the end of the race some things switched around and I got to be up here. It was a good race, I feel good and am still feeling fresh too."

    Defending premier class champion Chase Sexton was quick out of the gates on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, second fastest in qualifying and then fourth in his Heat. The Main Event proved more challenging though, coming from outside of the top 10 at the end of the opening lap to claim important points for sixth place. He's now positioned fourth in the series.

    Chase Sexton: "We finished sixth in Arlington, it isn't where we aim to be, but we will look ahead to next weekend and aim to keep fighting from here."

    As 250SX East resumed with Round 2 following two weekends off, Vialle's day began in more difficult fashion in crashing during the afternoon, but he managed to rebound for fifth in his Heat Race. That set him up for the Main Event, where the two-time MX2 World Champion charged to a first-career Supercross podium in third position following a convincing effort on his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION. 

    Tom Vialle: "We're happy to be on the podium and excited with the result. I had an okay day, aside from my crash in practice, and that affected me in the Heat race, so it wasn't great for the gate pick. I was able to ride well the whole Main Event, it's amazing to get my first podium in Supercross and I want to fight now for the win – that's really the goal from this point."

    Binder & Miller chase the night at Qatar test: Roll on 2024 MotoGP™!

    Ver Perfil

    MotoGP moved from Asia to the Middle East and from Malaysia to Qatar for the second pre-season test of the 2024 campaign. Brad Binder logged the 9th fastest effort through the two seven-hour sessions across two days and Jack Miller was 11th quickest as Red Bull KTM registered almost 220 laps in their chase of the best set-up to enter the new calendar.

    • Promising outing for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing with both Brad Binder and Jack Miller under the lap record set in 2023 and more than a second faster than the best race time from last year
    • Brad Binder produces 106 laps, a time nearly two tenths of a second under the lap record and six tenths from P1 at the Qatar test
    • Jack Miller is just over a tenth of a second behind his teammate after 112 times around the flat, curving Losail layout
    • Round one of 2024 MotoGP will take place at the same venue for the Grand Prix of Qatar and where the team have scored 2nd and 5th position finishes in the last two editions of the race

    KTM swapped heat, humidity and a sticky Sepang International Circuit for the evening lights, strong breeze and sandy, abrasive asphalt of the Lusail International Circuit as Qatar hosted the second and final pre-season test of 2024 MotoGP. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing joined their peers for a two-day run at the 5.4km course north of Doha, and the last chance to try parts and ideas and homologate configurations of the KTM RC16 for the campaign ahead.

    Brad Binder and Jack Miller took profit of a track that gradually became cleaner throughout use on Monday to re-try technical directions with aerodynamics and other mods discovered in Malaysia two weeks previously. The second day provided a final bout of confirmation before work also addressed set-up for the forthcoming Grand Prix (with a view towards the 11-lap Sprint and 22-lap full distance event). A time attack ‘blast’ resulted with Binder in 9th and Miller a slither of a second behind in 11th.

    Only 17 days separate the last laps of the test in Lusail until the first circulations of the Grand Prix of Qatar and the opening round of 21 in the 2024 MotoGP season. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will get fast again when it counts on Friday March 8th to launch their eighth term on the premier class grid.

    RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING TEAM PUSHES THROUGH GLENDALE CHALLENGE

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing remains in the title hunt after enduring a challenging night of racing at Round 6 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, with 450SX riders Chase Sexton and Aaron Plessinger rounding out the top 10 in the Main Event, while 250SX West Class rookie Julien Beaumer rode to a seventh-place finish.

    Defending 450SX Class Champion Sexton entered the weekend with a hand injury sustained during the week, with the number 1 intent on salvaging points toward the championship. After qualifying eighth, he would enter the Main Event via a determined fourth-place ride in his Heat Race.

    A gritty performance in the Main Event saw Sexton in the fight for the entirety of the race on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, focused on capturing as many points as possible before the series enters a one-week break. In true championship form, Sexton would cross the line in ninth position, and will now take the time to recover further in the coming weeks.

    Chase Sexton: “I did what I could tonight to salvage points toward the championship after hurting my hand this week. The week was rough and I wasn't even sure that I'd be able to race this weekend, but we got through the day and I'm just grateful that we have a scheduled weekend off coming up next week, so that should really help the healing process a lot. The way the results went tonight, I didn't lose too many points, so I'm still right in the title fight."

    Plessinger powered his way to the seventh-fastest 450SX Class qualifying time within State Farm Stadium, before charging to a convincing Heat Race win after a strong start onboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    In launching to a top-three start in the Main Event, Plessinger again demonstrated his immense form as he sat in second position, putting pressure on the leader as the laps clicked by. A small mishap then unfortunately saw the number 7 on the ground, before he remounted deep in the pack. From there, 'The Cowboy' was determined to salvage points, which saw him climb to 10th place in the end.

    Aaron Plessinger: “I'm just really annoyed about dropping it in the Main Event! I was riding good all day, holeshotted the Heat Race and then went wire-to-wire for the win. Entered the Main feeling good, got a good start there too and was right behind Kenny [Roczen], putting the pressure on, and then had a bonehead move where I tucked the front. The field was still bunched up at that time, so I went back to P22 and came back to 10th. This one stings, but we’re still in the championship hunt heading into Arlington."

    250SX West Class newcomer Beaumer returned to action in Arizona, recording the fourth-fastest time in qualifying aboard his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, before collecting P4 in his Heat Race to enter the Main Event with a solid gate pick.

    A top 10 start for the teenager and a consistent ride saw him battle hard on the technical Glendale track layout, which yielded a seventh-place finish as the western region now gets ready to take a six-week break, which will be valuable for Beaumer to keep gaining valuable experience at the test track with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing.

    Julien Beaumer: “It was a good day for me here in Glendale, qualifying fourth and then fighting my way into fourth for the Heat Race also. The Main Event was good also, started in 10th and charged my way to fourth, before a couple of small mistakes with my timing on this big track put me back to seventh in the end. I'm happy with my day and am ready to get back to work during the break!”

    RED BULL KTM'S CHASE SEXTON RECLAIMS 450SX POINTS LEAD FOLLOWING DETROIT RUNNER-UP

    Ver Perfil

    A second-place result for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team rider Chase Sexton saw him reclaim the 450SX Class points lead at Round 5 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship inside Detroit’s Ford Field tonight, as teammate Aaron Plessinger pieced together a consistent ride in technical conditions to earn a P6 finish.

    Defending champion Sexton found comfort immediately in practice and qualifying, posting the third fastest laptime as he took his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into the night show. The momentum would continue for Sexton as he raced to P4 in his Heat Race.

    A top-three start in the Main Event for Sexton saw the number 1 in the fight from the beginning, and he would maintain pressure throughout the duration of the race on the deteriorating track to earn a convincing second position. He now takes the 450SX points lead back from teammate Plessinger heading into Glendale next weekend.

    Chase Sexton: “It’s nice to reclaim the red plate! Tonight was one of my better rides… we’ve had a lot of ups and downs this year with the mud races, then last week was a Triple Crown, which meant this weekend was one of our first real Main Events and I felt pretty solid in the conditions. I didn’t have a great Heat Race, then seeing the 250 start I was a little bit nervous starting so far outside. I was fortunate to get a good start, then had some good speed, although a few little mistakes cost me. All in all, it was a good Main Event, and now I’m looking forward to Arizona."

    Holding the 450SX series lead entering Detroit, Plessinger powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to P10 in qualifying as he adjusted to the softer, East Coast surface, before charging to a popular opening Heat Race victory of the night.

    A mid-field start in the Main Event saw The Cowboy's work cut out for him, as he steadily climbed through the pack throughout the race, before crossing the finish line in sixth place. He now sits third in the standings, only two points back from Sexton and the red plates.

    Aaron Plessinger: “Detroit, I had a good night overall. We got a Heat Race win and in the Main I just messed up the start – came from around 15th place and ended up sixth, so not too mad with that! We’ll go back, do some homework and stay in this championship fight. Onto Glendale, I like that stadium, so we’ll go get back to the warmth and look forward to it.”

    The Detroit round marked a shift in contenders for the 250SX division, with the Eastern Regional series commencing as dual MX2 World Champion Tom Vialle enters his second season of AMA Supercross competition.

    The day began well for the Frenchman, who recorded P4 in qualifying on his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, before notching a strong third-place score in his Heat Race. A first turn pile-up that claimed a sizable portion of the 250SX East field unfortunately saw Vialle caught up in the chaos, with the number 16 eventually remounting to be credited with P18 on the night.

    Tom Vialle: “I actually had a pretty good day going, top five in all of the qualifying sessions and then P3 in my Heat Race, so the riding was pretty good until the Main Event. I had a crash and couldn’t really do anything about it – I was hit from the back, which of course makes me pretty disappointed. I felt great on the track and I think it would’ve been a great race. A lot of top guys were on the floor in the first turn, which means that a few are a ways down in the championship, so let's regroup and come back for the next East Coast round in Dallas.”

    AARON PLESSINGER AND RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING RETAIN 450SX POINTS LEAD WITH ANAHEIM 2 PODIUM

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger captured third place at Round 4 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, with 450SX teammate Chase Sexton posting a strong haul of results including the opening Race win across the Triple Crown format for fifth overall.

    Entering with the premier class points lead following his breakout win in San Diego, Plessinger’s KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION sported the red plates as he took to the circuit for qualifying. P14 was the result, which 'The Cowboy' would build upon as he took sixth place in the first Race of the night.

    Strong starts and convincing race-pace saw Plessinger in the mix throughout the two following Races, as the number 7 charged to P4 and P3 results, respectively, and third overall on the night. With his Anaheim 2 podium, he opens his lead atop the standings to four over teammate Sexton, heading a Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 1-2 entering Detroit.

    Aaron Plessinger: “This race was really important for me, just to stay consistent and not let things get to my head. I feel like I did a good job of that – I got great starts all night, I tightened up a little in Race 1, before in Race 2 I rode really good, and then Race 3 I was right there behind Chase [Sexton]. Tonight was tough, a lot of the success had to do with being consistent, and I think I did a good job of that."

    Returning to the second Angel Stadium stop of the season, defending 450SX Champion Sexton charged to the second-fastest time in qualifying as he dialed in his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION on the hard-packed, dry track surface.

    Starts proved to be critical in the Triple Crown Main Event, and Sexton would launch to the front of the field in the first Race, going on to post a standout wire-to-wire race victory to begin the night. The tables would be turned for Race 2, however, with a difficult start seeing him only manage an 11th-place finish by race's end.

    The third and final Race saw all the contenders in the mix as they battled at the front of the field, with Sexton putting together a calculated performance that would see him bring home second position and fifth overall for the round.

    Chase Sexton: “Round 4, Triple Crown, I think I finished 1-11-2. First Race was good, second Race I came through the pack and then had a stupid crash, which put me back, then the third Race was okay also – I was just focused on closing it out consistently. Not my greatest night, but we’ll bounce back next week, and onto some east coast dirt, which I’m excited about.”

    250SX West rookie Julien Beaumer recorded the sixth-fastest time in qualifying, before an untimely fall in the first Race resulted in 12th place. The highly-rated teenager bounced back in Race 2, powering his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to a top 10 start and clawing his way up to a fifth-place score. P6 in Race 3 earned him seventh overall to conclude Anaheim 2.

    Julien Beaumer: “Anaheim 2, my first Triple Crown, was good. Race 1 was not the best, I forced it a little too much and crashed, but the last two were a little better. I still made it hard on myself with the starts, so I had to make my way back toward the front. We'll get back to work these next two weeks, work on some things, and come out swinging in Glendale.”

    RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING'S AARON PLESSINGER EARNS FIRST-CAREER 450 SUPERCROSS WIN IN SAN DIEGO

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Aaron Plessinger charged to his first career 450SX Main Event victory at Round 3 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, taking a convincing win in rain-soaked conditions and taking control of the series points lead in the process. Teammate Chase Sexton raced to P8 in class, now positioned second in the standings.

    In a tight 450SX Class qualifying session, Plessinger was P13 on the time-sheets, before storming to the second Heat Race win of the evening. That set him up for a breakout result inside Snapdragon Stadium amidst the steady rain falling in the region.

    Powering his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to a top-five start in the Main Event, Plessinger looked right at home as he battled at the front of the field, exercising patience as he closed in on the lead at the midway mark. An eventual pass for P1 and a well-managed race up front earned AP his first-career 450SX Main Event – a popular result after coming so close during his career previously.

    Aaron Plessinger: “Man, San Diego! It was a really good race, managed to get into the lead around the midway point, and just rode clean laps, stayed up, and got the win! On top of that, we take the red plate and points lead into the next round, which is huge for me. We had a great off-season... The team and I worked super-hard and to start the season with 4-5-1 results is my best start ever! The fans were crazy sticking it out here in the rain, so I’m stoked to be able to deliver a result to them, and ready to do it again next weekend."

    Defending 450SX champion Sexton looked sharp on his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION from the outset in San Diego, charging to the third-fastest lap time in a shortened qualifying program due to weather, and notching a time just two-tenths shy of pole position.

    After racing to seventh place in his Heat Race following a troubled start, Sexton would also experience adversity in the Main Event, with the number 1 caught up in the chaos of the mid-pack early on. He clawed his way from the rear of the field to capture a hard-fought eighth-place finish, now one point behind Plessinger in the series.

    Chase Sexton“Round three was another mud race and hopefully the last one of the year! For me, it just wasn’t a great night from the get-go, I struggled in the Heat Race, and then in the Main I actually felt like I was riding pretty good, although just was a long ways back. I did the best damage control that I could do and that got me eighth place. We’ll go back to work this week and come out swinging for A2.”

    Following 250SX West qualifying, Supercross rookie Beaumer recorded an impressive fourth-fastest lap-time, before racing to an eventful fifth place in his Heat Race. A more challenging Main Event saw Beaumer take the checked flag in 16th place, now sitting 10th in the championship.

    Julien Beaumer: “Finished up here in San Diego and I’m pretty bummed – just crashed too many times. I was riding really average at the start of the race and figured things out at the end, but I’d already lost too much time. We’ll regroup this week and come out swinging in Anaheim.”

    CHASE SEXTON CHARGES TO FIRST WIN WITH RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING IN SAN FRANCISCO

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Chase Sexton delivered his first win for the team at Round 2 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship, taking a dominant wire-to-wire victory in the muddy conditions and reclaiming the 450SX points lead. Teammate Aaron Plessinger took a P5 finish, while 250SX West rookie Julien Beaumer finished in 11th.

    On a challenging, wet track surface, both Plessinger and Sexton came to grips with San Francisco conditions immediately, powering their KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION machines to the first and second qualifying positions, led by mud specialist Plessinger.

    Defending champion Sexton charged to a top-three start in his Heat Race, continuing his level of comfort as he chased down the race leader, coming within bike lengths of getting the victory in second place.

    And after firing out of the gates for the holeshot, Sexton took control of the 450SX Main Event to lead from the outset and delivered the performance of a champion, showcasing skill, and consistency as he captured his eighth-career 450SX Main Event race win, and his first since joining Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2024.

    Chase Sexton: “I have to give a huge shoutout to the team, they’ve put in so much effort and hard work to get me to where I need to be. I was a bit disappointed that this round was a mudder as the progress we made from this week to last is pretty crazy, but I'm stoked to get a win for the team and it feels great to deliver this result!”

    The qualifying momentum would continue for Plessinger as he lined up for the Heat Race, with the Ohio native launching out of the gates for the all-important holeshot. A late race mishap saw him claim a third-place finish to comfortably transfer into the Main Event.

    A calculated outing then saw the number 7 post a measured ride to withstand the elements, making progress throughout the race and crossing the finish line for a well-earned fifth-place finish in San Francisco.

    Aaron Plessinger: "San Francisco, mud race… a proper mud race. Qualified first, which is a first! Then yeah, good start in the Heat Race, made a few mistakes, which cost me, and I got third. The start of the Main was horrible, I spun off the grate, but made it through with all the guys on the ground – don’t know how I did that. Lost goggles about mid-way, and just did what I could to fortunately get back to fifth. We got some good points, sitting P4 now in the points, and I’m ready to show them what I’ve got in San Diego.”

    Supercross rookie Beaumer struggled to piece together a clean lap in qualifying, before rebounding to secure a sixth-place finish in his Heat Race and a direct entry into the night’s 250SX West Main Event. On a deteriorating track, Beaumer made the most of track position in the tough conditions and would post a consistent P11 result by race's end.

    Julien Beaumer: “San Fran was muddy, that’s for sure! Good night, got some points and made it through the Main, so I’m happy to be leaving with some points. The focus was on staying upright, but I ended up getting tired from having to pick up my bike so many times. I’m looking forward to San Diego, with the goal being much the same as A1.”

    Chase Sexton podiums on debut with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing at Anaheim 1

    Ver Perfil

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Chase Sexton claimed a podium finish of third position in his first appearance with the team in tonight's opening round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship at Anaheim 1, directly ahead of teammate Aaron Plessinger in P4 at the conclusion of the 450SX Main Event. 250SX West rookie Julien Beaumer placed a solid sixth at the season-opener.

    Defending Supercross champion Sexton debuted the number 1 plate onboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, posting the second fastest lap-time following the afternoon's qualifying sessions.

    A costly fall in the first turn of his Heat Race had Sexton down the order, and meant he would have to charge from the rear of the field to get back into transfer position. True to champion form, he would do just that, surging his way into sixth place by the time the checkered flag flew.

    A top-five start in the Main Event put Sexton right in the fight as the gates dropped, moving forward as the race unfolded. With consistency a main contributor to winning titles, he posted a calculated ride on the technical Anaheim circuit to seal third place at Round 1.

    Chase Sexton: “I come out here to win and be up front, but I’m happy to be on the podium coming out of Anaheim. As we saw last year, it’s as much about consistency as speed, and we know what we need to work on – I feel much more solid this year and I think we’ll be in a really good spot. It was a positive start to my career at Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and I'm excited to keep progressing as the rounds continue in these early stages of the season.”

    For teammate Plessinger, P12 was the result following qualifying, as the Ohio native looked to begin his season on the front foot. A mid-field start in his Heat Race saw the number 7 claw his way into the top five, racing to a solid second-place finish to enter the Main Event.

    Plessinger benefited from a strong start in the final, only to be shuffled back to the tail-end of the top 10 as he rounded the first turn. Another charge through the field was in order, as he steadily made his way through the pack and into fourth place, which is where he would finish to start his 2024 campaign.

    Aaron Plessinger: “A1 was a good start to the season! I felt great all day, and then yeah, Heat Race went great, got second behind Kenny [Roczen], but came from a ways back, then got a good jump in the Main Event, but kind of forgot how to go around a first corner... Got shuffled back to about 10th, and then came back strong to fourth. I’m pumped on it, good start to the season, and we've got some homework to do, but I'm looking forward to San Francisco and hopefully getting it on the podium.”

    Qualifying marked an impressive 250SX debut for Beaumer on the Western Region, who powered his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the third-fastest time in convincing fashion. A holeshot in the second Heat Race of the night resulted in a promising ride toward the front of the pack on his way to second place.

    The 17-year-old launched out of the gates once again in the Main Event to the holeshot, leading the opening laps. The rookie held his own as he challenged for a podium position throughout the majority of the race, before eventually taking the checkered flag in sixth place.

    Julien Beaumer: “Obviously this is A1, so I was a bit nervous at first – the Heat Race was nerve-wracking, but felt good overall. I felt good in the Main Event and got the holeshot, which made things a little scary, but I feel like my pace was good in the beginning. I made a little mistake around halfway and got passed, but just settled in from there. I am happy with sixth and the goal for next weekend is to be in the top five.”

    Anaheim 1 also saw the opening stop of KTM Junior Supercross, presented by Wells Fargo, where 15 talented young racers took to the track onboard the KTM SX-E 5, as Ethan Fisher, Dillon Chapman, and Logan Moore featured on the podium.

      A refreshed four-rider combination will lead Red Bull KTM Factory Racing into the 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX), beginning with the AMA Supercross Championship season-opener at Anaheim 1 on January 6, and with firm intentions of competing for title wins when the gates drop on the upcoming 31-round season.

      Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will field the all-star line-up of Chase Sexton and Aaron Plessinger on the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION in 2024, alongside Tom Vialle and Julien Beaumer, who will each be READY TO RACE with the KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION under the guidance of Team Manager Ian Harrison.

      All four riders were presented this afternoon and into the evening during a special 2024 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team media introduction under lights at RD Field, the organization's official testing and training facility based in Murrieta, California, as they enter the important final stages of the pre-season together.

      Bringing the red number one plate to defend his 450SX championship is Chase Sexton, the 24-year-old who clinched a first-career premier class crown last May. Also ranked fourth in the AMA Pro Motocross Championship after a share of misfortune, as well as the third-place finisher in the inaugural SMX post-season, Sexton has the credentials and form to enter season 2024 as a legitimate title contender across the board once again.

      Chase Sexton: "I'm excited and feeling refreshed for the start of the 2024 Supercross series. Testing is going well and I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone more and more on the team, and feel like I’m gelling well with the crew and my new teammates. There’s obviously a level of expectation that comes with heading into 2024 carrying the red plate and I welcome the challenge, especially with the full support of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing behind me."

      Fan favorite Aaron Plessinger is back for his third term at Red Bull KTM Factory Racing, determined to build upon his 2023 campaign that saw him claim seventh overall in 450SX despite missing multiple rounds, a convincing third in 450MX, and fifth in the combined SMX standings. Those results will form a strong foundation for the 27-year-old to work from in the upcoming season, motivated to establish himself at the front of the pack year-round.

      Aaron Plessinger: "I'm totally ready to get this show on the road and go racing! Preparation for the 2024 Supercross season is going to plan and I’m just eager to get back to the races to see all my friends and fans again. I’m hoping I can finally bag some of those elusive wins this season, that’s the goal for the team and I, and I think it’s achievable with the encouragement and support I receive from everyone in the Red Bull KTM family."

      Two-time MX2 World Champion Tom Vialle built immense experience this year in what was his first season of competition in the United States, with the 23-year-old Frenchman now looking to benefit from the lessons learned over the past 12 months. Vialle was eighth in the 250SX East points, sixth in 250MX with a single victory to his credit at Southwick, and P8 in SMX, which sets him up for a strong sophomore season ahead.

      Tom Vialle: "The idea of getting to race at venues and on tracks that I’ve been to before is exciting and something I am really looking forward to next year. I feel like I learned a lot in my rookie season in the U.S., but it’s definitely tougher racing a brand new track every week when almost everyone in your class has already raced on them before. It’s really going to help my confidence a lot knowing the tracks I’m going to – it makes a big difference. 2024 should be a good year for me and the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team!"

      As for 17-year-old newcomer Julien Beaumer, he will open his full-time professional career as the youngest member of the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team and is in line to make his mark while his knowledge climbs on a week-by-week basis. Already a SX Futures Main Event winner, Beaumer is debuting in 250SX and will carry that rookie tag into Pro Motocross, as well as the SMX Finals series when it commences in September.

      Julien Beaumer: "Making my debut in the 250 Supercross class next year is a dream come true and I’m super-grateful to everyone at Red Bull KTM Factory Racing for giving me this opportunity. My goal is to go out there and learn as much as I can this season, all the while giving it my all. The team and I have put in a lot of laps at the practice track to build a good base and gain as much experience as I can before the start of the 2024 season. I just want to do my best and make both the team and myself proud in my rookie season."

      Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: "Our 2024 team is excited to start the new race season. Two of our team members are new, so getting to know one another and developing their bikes specific to their needs and riding style can be a challenge, but so far it has gone very well. The team has spent many days at the test track working on fine-tuning the bikes and I am now looking forward to seeing how we stack up against our competition on January 6th. It is exciting for me as the Team Manager to see our four riders working together so cohesively while motivating and challenging each other to be better. Behind all this effort is always a group of people who are diligent at putting the hours in to get us ready for the start gate at Anaheim 1, and for them, I am very grateful. See you at the races."

      Roger De Coster – Director of Motorsports, North America: "I am very impressed with the dynamic amongst the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team and I’m looking forward to the start of the new season. With fresh blood in the team, it’s great to see the level of positivity amongst the group as a whole, working together and motivating one another. Watching them at the test track each day, there is good forward momentum amongst the group and I think we are in a strong position to challenge up front in all classes each weekend. Austria has been working extremely hard and has shown great support, which is really encouraging and I’m excited for 2024."

      Ver Perfil

      Introducing Chase Sexton, the reigning 450SX Champion and latest addition to Red Bull KTM Factory Racing ahead of the 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) season.

      The 24-year-old will begin to defend his 2023 AMA Supercross Championship onboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION when the gate drops in January at Anaheim 1, READY TO RACE into an exciting new era for both himself and the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing organization.

      Sexton has officially united with KTM to contest the AMA Supercross Championship, AMA Pro Motocross Championship, and high-profile SMX Finals Series in a multi-year commitment, also adopting a striking, new single-digit career number of four entering this next stage of his professional career.

      But first, the Illinois-raised Sexton will line up with the No. one plate in his 450SX title defense and is already getting down to business in a bid to commence his highly-anticipated partnership with KTM at the highest of levels together from the outset.

      Sexton clinched a first-career premier class Supercross Championship in May this year with six Main Event victories to his credit and went on to claim fourth position in the final 450MX standings, despite missing multiple rounds in the first half of the outdoors.

      He then placed P3 overall following the inaugural SMX post-season to complete the marathon 31-round schedule, winning the hybrid-type Charlotte event to open the playoffs, and once again established himself as a legitimate title challenger across each discipline in taking the championship down to the wire.

      Chase Sexton: “I’m extremely excited to join the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing organization. Not only is the equipment top-notch, but the team personnel and their drive to win is, too. From the first time I walked in those doors, Roger [De Coster], Ian [Harrison], the team, and the entire KTM company have been nothing but accommodating. I think we have a bright future together and I’m eager to get to work.”

      Ian Harrison – Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “Our goal with Chase from the onset is to make him feel welcomed and truly at home with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team. During these early days, we are working toward preparing a great race package for both Chase and the team to build from. I really think that we can deliver the full factory support system that he longs for and deserves, and I also feel strongly that Chase will continue to elevate the team and our riders to a stronger position. We look forward to being in the fight in 2024 and thank him for trusting in us.”

      Roger De Coster – Director of Motorsports, North America: “We are always watching and looking at riders progressing through their early years and Chase’s progress has been very impressive. I am impressed by his determination and tenacity on the track, as well as his professionalism in the way that he handles himself off the track, and our entire U.S. team is thrilled to have the opportunity to work and grow with Chase in the coming years. Our brand values align with those of Chase, so collectively we are really excited to see what the future has in store for both of us and what we can all achieve together.”

      The competitive debut of Sexton and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing is scheduled to take place at Round 1 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship – again doubling as the SMX season-opener – in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, January 6.

      Red Bull KTM's Aaron Plessinger fifth in points at conclusion of SMX Finals series in Los Angeles

      Ver Perfil

      Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger closed the curtains on his SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) Finals series with a well-earned fifth position in the 2023 standings, as 250SMX contenders Maximus Vohland and Tom Vialle claimed P7 and P8 overall for the season.

      Plessinger opened race day in Los Angeles by powering his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the 10th-fastest time in qualifying, as the Supercross-type track layout provided unique elements of the sport to complete the inaugural SMX series at the LA Memorial Coliseum – including a high-speed section up through the iconic peristyle and outside of the stadium surroundings.

      As the night program commenced, a difficult start to open the two-moto format saw Plessinger go down in the opening race after charging forward, and he would be credited with P20. A rebound in the second moto saw the number seven fight his way through the field, earning a solid P6 by race's end to turn around his night and finish the round in 12th place.

      With his Los Angeles result, Plessinger ends the SuperMotocross World Championship with fifth position overall in the premier 450SMX category, combining his results from the AMA Supercross Championship and Pro Motocross Championship, contested prior to the SMX Finals series.

      Aaron Plessinger: "The last round of the SMX series here in Los Angeles didn’t quite go as planned. I tucked the front-end after the restart there in moto one and ended up on the ground with a pretty hard hit. Second moto, I did what I could to salvage a finish, which was good enough for sixth place. A mediocre day here at this round – that one big mistake cost me bad. All in all, a few too many mistakes on my end during this series, so we’ll go back to the drawing board, and get testing underway to come out swinging for next season."

      Two-time MX2 World Champion Vialle recorded the seventh-fastest qualifying lap during the afternoon, before edging to a top-three start in the opening 250SMX moto, and then quickly moving his way to the front of the pack. Managing the pace out front for the majority of the moto, Vialle finished with a third-place result after an inspiring battle among the leaders.

      Circling the opening stages of moto two in P5, the French newcomer to U.S. competition was taken out of top-five contention by another rider, and went down in the process. A spirited ride from there saw him race to a P13 result, ending 10th overall for the round, and concluding his 250SMX campaign in eighth place overall.

      Tom Vialle: "The night was pretty good until the second moto. I was leading the first moto and ended up third, so that was good and I felt great! I was also in good position in the second moto before another rider hit me pretty hard in the corner, so I was really unlucky there. I was pretty upset, because I could have fought for the podium and a good overall result, so it wasn't what I hoped for. We were a little bit unlucky there, but it's the way it is and now we look ahead to the Nations and focusing on 2024 to be back again and as strong as possible."

      Meanwhile, 250SMX teammate Vohland charged to the fifth-quickest time in qualifying onboard his 250 SX-F on the technical LA circuit. A poor start in the opening moto saw the young Californian race to a ninth-place score, while seventh position in moto two saw him place ninth overall for the final round of SMX. That resulted in seventh for the championship.

      Maximus Vohland: "It wasn't the worst result for me this weekend, being ninth overall and seventh in the final SMX points, but I didn't ride to my potential tonight across the two motos. Qualifying was positive earlier on though and I learned a lot this season that will help me keep building into the future."

      Top-five form delivered by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team in Chicago SMX Playoff

      Ver Perfil

      Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Aaron Plessinger charged to a fourth-place result at the second stop of the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) Finals series in the 450SMX Class at Chicagoland Speedway, with 250SMX challenger Maximus Vohland finishing fifth overall.

      Plessinger was P7 in qualifying on the high-speed, hybrid SMX circuit, with a blend of both outdoor and indoor-style obstacles presenting fresh challenges for riders and teams. Red Bull KTM had Plessinger comfortable from the outset, as the Ohio native made his way forward throughout the entire opening moto, finishing in a hard-fought fifth place.

      After launching his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to a mid-field start in Moto 2, Plessinger’s pace was once again on display as he made his way through the pack, before crossing the finish-line in fourth position and securing P4 overall for the round.

      Plessinger now sits fourth overall in the 450SMX standings and, with triple points on offer for the final round of the SMX Finals series at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum next weekend, the premier class title-race remains wide-open.

      Aaron Plessinger: "I felt super-comfortable today here in Chicago! The team and I made some great set-up decisions on the motorcycle and I think it really showed. The starts weren’t quite there – I ate a lot of roost tonight – but I was able to charge hard during both motos and was going forward right until the final lap of each race. Excited with where we are at and the feeling that we achieved today! P4 in the standings, and with triple points next weekend, we’ll be fighting hard for the top spot in LA."

      Vohland, meanwhile, recorded the 12th-fastest qualifying time at Chicagoland Speedway, before a poor start in Moto 1 saw the number 34 race his way up into eighth place by moto's end. Another mid-pack start in the second outing saw him work his way through the field with a strong ride all the way until the checkered flag. He ended up fifth in the race and overall for the weekend.

      Maximus Vohland: "I felt really comfortable on the bike right away in Chicago. Struggled off the start in Moto 1 and had to make a lot of passes to get into eighth, which was good. In Moto 2, I got a better start and went from 10th to fifth, so I had a really good ride. With triple points on offer next weekend, we’re still right in this thing and the plan for LA is to put the hammer down and finish the season strong."

      Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tom Vialle set the tone for his day at Chicago by posting the seventh-fastest 250SMX qualifying time, before powering his KTM 250 SX-F to an encouraging fourth-place score in the opening moto after a race-long battle among the leaders.

      Moto 2 began with a top-10 start for the dual MX2 World Champion, however, after racing all the way into third position, Vialle was unfortunately ruled out with a damaged gear-shifter as a result of making contact with a tuff-block, which marked the conclusion of his weekend. Vohland now sits seventh and Vialle eighth in the 250SMX standings with a single round remaining.

      Tom Vialle: "Today was good! I finished fourth place in the first moto and we were all super-close, so it was fun to be fighting for the win. And then second moto, I didn’t get a very good start, but I came back really strong and was in P3. Unfortunately, I clipped a tuff-block, which broke my shifter with three laps to go, and I had to pull in, which was disappointing. This is motorsport though and now we have one more to go in LA, where we will finish the season strong."

        Podium result for Red Bull KTM's Tom Vialle as SMX Finals series opens in Charlotte

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tom Vialle has opened the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) Finals series with second position in the 250SMX Class at Charlotte's zMAX Dragway, as 450SMX Class challenger Aaron Plessinger finished sixth overall.

        Finding comfort on the hybrid layout from the outset, dual MX2 World Champion Vialle posted the fifth-fastest qualifying time, setting him up for the pair of 20-minute plus one-lap motos. After a top 10 start in Moto 1, Vialle raced his way up through the field and would finish with a convincing P3 by race's end.

        Powering his 250 SX-F to the second moto holeshot, Vialle led the field for the majority of the encounter, before claiming a P2 result, and sealing the runner-up result for the round. With his combined moto scorecard and regular season seeding position, Vialle sits P4 in the 250SMX standings, four points outside of the lead.

        Tom Vialle: "I felt really good here in Charlotte, especially with this mixed track between supercross and motocross. There were sections where it was more supercross and others motocross, but overall, I was really happy with the circuit and my bike worked great in both conditions! I got a strong start in the second race and could really just focus on what I was doing – now I can’t wait for the next round in Chicago!"

        Plessinger powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to the eighth-fastest qualifying time in Charlotte, as riders were faced with damp conditions to open the day in North Carolina. A top-five start in the first moto saw Plessinger battle hard toward the front of the pack, charging across the finish line for a fifth-place score.

        A mid-field start in the second outing saw Plessinger have his work cut out for him, as the number seven made passes throughout the moto to finish in sixth place. That placed him sixth overall at SMX Playoff 1 and he retains third position in the championship with two rounds remaining in the finals.

        Aaron Plessinger: "Charlotte was a wild one! The track turned into a really good race track – the split lane was interesting and, overall, I had a really good time today. We're still in good position, so really, I’m just going to go back and do work. We’ll keep working and set our sights on another good outing in Chicago.”

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Maximus Vohland began his Charlotte race day by slotting in behind his teammate Vialle in qualifying, recording the sixth-fastest time. Hampered by two poor starts in each moto, the Sacramento native finished with a hard fought 10-12 moto scorecard for 12th overall.

        Maximus Vohland: "Really disappointed with my starts today. I put myself in bad situations out of the gate, which meant I had to come from behind in each race, which is never ideal. I'll go back to the drawing board this week and figure the starts out so we put ourselves in a better position for Chicago."

        Double podiums for Aaron Plessinger and Tom Vialle to close out 2023 AMA Pro Motocross season

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammates Aaron Plessinger and Tom Vialle both claimed third-place results to conclude the 2023 AMA Pro Motocross Championship on the podium at today's Ironman National, with fan favorite Plessinger also finishing P3 in the final 450MX standings.

        Plessinger qualified in sixth place at the 11th and final round of the season, before powering his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to two strong starts across the two-moto format, battling for the race lead early on in both motos. After spirited rides in each race, the Ohio native finished with 5-3 moto results, securing third place overall for the day.

        A strong season highlighted by three round podiums sees Plessinger finish the 450MX series in third position, with the number 7 having to overcome moments of adversity throughout the year to eventually earn a career-high result in the premier 450 Class.

        With his combined results across both the 2023 AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross championships, Plessinger enters the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) Finals series as the second seed in the 450 division, with the first of three events to take place at Charlotte Motor Speedway's zMAX Dragway on Saturday, September 9.

        Aaron Plessinger: "I’m pumped to finish this season’s outdoor championship on the box! We experienced a few ups and downs this year, which is all part of racing, although continued to fight and ended up with P3 overall in the championship. My first motos remained the difficult part of the day, which was the same deal today, although we rebounded well in moto two for third place. Onto the SMX playoffs now, I’m stoked and intrigued to see what the tracks will be like, and excited to take the sport to all-new venues also."

        In 250MX, dual MX2 World Champion Vialle capped off a successful debut season in AMA Pro Motocross, beginning the Ironman National by setting the seventh-fastest qualifying time onboard his KTM 250 SX-F. A solid start resulted in a third-place finish in the opening moto, before having to charge through the field for P4 in the second moto and taking third overall for the final round.

        Vialle showed immense speed throughout his maiden campaign on U.S. soil, which culminated in an overall win at Round 6 of the season in the sands of Southwick. Posting a string of consistent finishes, the Frenchman was ranked sixth place overall in the final season standings.

        Tom Vialle: "I really didn't know what to expect this year, to be honest, racing my first season of Pro Motocross. Learning how these guys race, learning the tracks at every round for the first time, and then how to set the bike up over here too. Racing Supercross in the winter and motocross through the summer, this was all new to me, so I am very happy to finish my season here at Ironman with a podium, also to get the win in Southwick, and to come out of my first full season in America healthy."

        250MX teammate Maximus Vohland shadowed Vialle in qualifying by posting the eighth-fastest time, before two calculated rides saw the Californian achieve an 8-8 moto scorecard, which earned him P8 overall for the round. In what marked a consistent season, Vohland ended the series in seventh place overall.

        Maximus Vohland: "It was a tough weekend here in Ironman. I had to fight back to eighth in moto one after going down in the opening lap carnage, then in the second moto I really charged hard, was in sixth, and then an off-track excursion cost me a couple of places. Seventh overall for the championship, I would've liked for more, although I was happy with the improvements I made this year and now we'll come back for the SMX playoffs next up."

        With their performances across both the AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross championships, Vialle and Vohland enter the SMX Finals P6 and P7, respectively in the 250 category.

        The Ironman National marked another invaluable learning experience for 250MX Class newcomer Julien Beaumer, who qualified in 12th position, before racing to 15th in the first moto after being caught up in an opening lap crash. A top-five start in moto two saw the teenager on-pace with the front-runners, before an untimely fall resulted in an early retirement from the race.

        Julien Beaumer: "The weekend here at Ironman was decent for me. I qualified in 12th place and felt pretty good, before I got caught up in the opening lap pile-up in moto one, so I had to come back through the field, which I did before I went down again. I recovered to 15th and then in moto two, I got a great start, ran fourth and then dropped to seventh, where I was comfortable. Then I ended up having a crash, which took me out, but all-in-all I learned a lot these last two nationals, especially around the intensity these guys carry, and I’ll take these lessons into next year’s Supercross season. I’ve got a great team behind me, who have my back at all times, so I’m excited for the future."

        Binder ties long-term MotoGP™ future to Red Bull KTM

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will again count on the skills and tenacity of Brad Binder for their MotoGP project until the end of 2026. An early contract extension was agreed and signed with the South African star at the team’s home Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

        Binder, who recently turned 28, will remain in Red Bull KTM colors and onboard the KTM RC16; continuing a prosperous alliance that began in 2020. Brad will stretch his relationship with the factory well beyond a decade after entering the Red Bull KTM structure in 2015: the first of a five-year stint with the Red Bull KTM Ajo crew. Binder won the 2016 Moto3™ crown and then took 8 wins and 15 podiums during a three-term development phase in Moto2.

        #33 made the jump to the MotoGP Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team in 2020 and became the first athlete to scale all the way through the KTM GP Academy scheme from his formative days as a teenager in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. He clinched KTM’s maiden premier class victory that same year in the Czech Republic and logged another seven podium appearances to-date with a best championship finish of 6th.

        His second MotoGP success, at the Red Bull Ring for the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix, was another KTM MotoGP milestone. Brad also grasped KTM’s first MotoGP ‘Sprint’ win with his performance in Argentina earlier this season.

        Binder already had a contract in place for the 2024 MotoGP campaign but will now enter his thirties as a key rider and figure for the firm’s Grand Prix effort.

        Brad Binder: “A massive thank you to KTM and the management for trusting in me and for letting me be involved in this incredible program for a few more years. We are coming very close to what we want to achieve on the track but I cannot say enough good things about the team and my crew. 2015 and those first KTM races feel like a long time ago! But also time passes quickly and we’ve made some special memories. I know there is a lot more to come and cannot wait to build those stories. Thanks again.”

        Francesco Guidotti, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “Brad is a rock of our team and it is great news that he will stay even longer with us. We’ve been building a relationship and a project for a long time now. He brings a winning spirit to our box but also stability and an important understanding of KTM. He is always an exciting rider to watch and a fantastic guy to work with. I want to thank him for his belief in us and for how we’ve pushed together to this point so far. There is still so much potential to come.”

        Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director: “Keeping Brad at the sharp point of our MotoGP program was a big priority for us. We love everything about this guy: he is an all-out racer and leaves everything on the track. Brad is a valued part of the family and his character and the way he is around the box, the fans and the company makes him the ideal ambassador for us. We’ve already achieved and experienced so much together, and it makes us very proud that he wants to continue on our RC16 and stay in orange. We couldn’t be happier to put that #33 bike in the box for a few more years to come.”

        Adamo back on top with perfect MX2 Grand Prix 1-1 in Finland

        Ver Perfil

        Andrea Adamo strengthened his hold on the 2023 FIM MX2 World Championship with a superb double moto win and the second Grand Prix victory of the season - and his career - today in Finland. The Italian took his KTM 250 SX-F to P1 in both motos through the damp Vantaa sand of the circuit next to Helsinki airport to stretch his margin at the peak of the standings to 60 points. Teammate Liam Everts was also on the podium in 3rd overall and Jeffrey Herlings made a return to MXGP action with a top five classification.

        • Adamo’s second win and eighth podium finish from fourteen rounds in 2023 is achieved thanks to his maiden career ‘1-1’ as MXGP returns to Vantaa.
        • For the fourth time in 2023 Red Bull KTM Factory Racing fill two spots on the same MX2 Grand Prix rostrum as Liam Everts secures P3 for his fifth trophy of the campaign. Everts is now 3rd in the championship.
        • Jeffrey Herlings rides his KTM 450 SX-F in MXGP action for the first time after recovering from a neck injury and after missing the last four rounds. The Dutchman finishes 5th.
        • Sacha Coenen is 7th in MX2 with a best moto result of 6th. After three back-to-back races, MXGP now pauses before the Grand Prix of Sweden at Uddevalla.

        MXGP cut through Finnish sand for the second year in a row but instead of circulating the curves of Hyvinkaa the series returned to another former Grand Prix site in Vantaa; on the periphery of Helsinki international airport. The venue had undergone modifications to welcome the world championship once more but was still a typically flat, soft and rough terrain. The fourteenth appointment on the MXGP schedule was temperate and damp but the racing was close and intense.

        Sacha Coenen was highest placed through the RAM Qualification Heats on a wet Saturday, earning 9 points for 2nd position and a ‘personal best’ for the rookie so far. His MX2 teammates were also in the top six. Jeffrey Herlings had set the fastest MXGP lap-time in Free Practice and Timed Practice but was understandably rusty with his stars and race speed.

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Tom Vialle captures first Pro Motocross victory at Southwick

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tom Vialle raced his way to the top step of the 250MX podium at Round 6 of the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship in the sands of Southwick today, with teammate Maximus Vohland finishing seventh overall. 450MX front-runner Aaron Plessinger claimed consistent fourth-place moto finishes for P4 overall.

        Two-time MX2 World Champion Vialle posted the sixth fastest time in the morning’s combined qualifying sessions, quickly coming to grips with the iconic sands of The Wick 338 circuit. A strong start in the first moto saw the Frenchman sit in P2, putting pressure on the leader and taking charge by the halfway mark. From there, Vialle would post a calculated ride to take a maiden Pro Motocross race win.

        Moto two saw Vialle power his KTM 250 SX-F to the all-important holeshot, putting himself in a great position from the outset. Engaged in a race-long battle, the 22-year-old newcomer to U.S. competition would fight hard for third, which is where he finished, and that was enough to land his first-career Pro Motocross round victory. He's currently seventh in the 250MX Championship as the series enters its second half.

        Tom Vialle: "It means a lot to get my first national win! I’ve had a few tough races, so to get on the podium with an overall win is nice, as it’s been challenging to get a good feeling at all of these new circuits. I feel like we are making great progress and we’re in a good position for the rest of the season. The track here was nice, way different to Lommel and places like that, but it felt good to be back in sandy conditions, and I’m looking forward now to next weekend in Millville."

        Meanwhile, Vohland shadowed Vialle in qualifying with the seventh quickest lap-time, before posting a consistent 8-6 moto scorecard for seventh overall. That continued his string of top 10 finishes and he has managed to maintain eighth place in the standings with five rounds to go.

        Maximus Vohland: "To finish inside the top 10 in qualifying and both motos showed we were consistent and the final moto result was an improvement. Myself and the team will keep putting in the work together in these middle stages of the season and I'm looking forward to getting to Millville now!"

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing 450MX entry Plessinger entered the Southwick National nursing a tweaked back, with the Ohio native showing heart as he worked his way to ninth position in qualifying. From there, he rode his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to a pair of fourth-place finishes, which landed him P4 overall and he's now third in the championship standings.

        Aaron Plessinger: "Yeah, man! 4-4 on the day for Southwick – it’s alright, can’t be mad at it. I felt solid all day, the first moto I struggled with comfort a little bit, and then for the second moto we made really good changes, but I just struggled a little bit with my body in that one. Super-rough track today – it was a hot one out here – but my back is slowly improving, so the aim is to land on the podium again at Spring Creek next weekend."

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing thanks Cooper Webb for five years of racing successes

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing would like to thank Cooper Webb for his achievements, commitment and determination following a highly-successful five seasons together. At this time, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and the 27-year-old Webb have mutually agreed to part ways with immediate effect.

        Ian Harrison, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Cooper for the years of successes we have had together. Over the past five years, we have been on the 450SX podium 52 times and of those, 21 were victories. We won the 450SX titles in 2019 and 2021, had a strong runner-up season in 2020 and finished third this year despite an unfortunate season-ending crash in Nashville.

        Cooper had the option in his contract as to whether he wanted to race outdoors and he decided at Daytona that he would not compete in AMA Pro Motocross in 2023. However, following his SX season-ending crash in Nashville, Cooper reached out about racing MX and KTM agreed to support him for the summer. Both sides came into the series somewhat underprepared and a practice crash before RedBud sidelined Cooper once again.

        Both Cooper and the team have decided to part ways, this will give him time to recover and then move on to the next chapter of his racing career. The team and myself wish him all the best. I will always be reminded of the success we have had together because Cooper’s championship bikes and trophies stand proudly in the KTM race shop lobby.”

        Webb joined Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2019 and went on to clinch a first-career 450SX Championship in that inaugural campaign, before again claiming the premier class crown in 2021 onboard the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

        Collectively, between 2019-2023, Webb and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing amassed a total of 21 Main Event wins together in the 450SX division of the AMA Supercross Championship, as well as a single AMA Pro Motocross Championship 450MX round victory in 2019. The entire team wishes Cooper well in his future endeavors.

        Red Bull KTM's Aaron Plessinger secures season-best second place in Salt Lake City Supercross finals

        Ver Perfil

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider Aaron Plessinger made a welcome return to racing and the podium at the 2023 AMA Supercross Championship finals in Salt Lake City, charging to a season-best second-place result to cap off what has been a convincing 450SX season for the fan-favorite.

        Plessinger put down the seventh-fastest qualifying time aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION this afternoon, before leading almost the entirety of the second 450cc Heat race of the night. A costly mistake through the whoops on a slick surface saw him fall, before quickly remounting and earning the final transfer position into the Main Event.

        A solid start in the Main Event saw Plessinger thrive in the conditions as he weaved his way through the field with precision, racing into second position by the midway point. From there, the Ohio native posted a calculated effort and finished off this year’s Supercross season with a runner-up finish. 

        Aaron Plessinger: "It feels good to cap the season off with a podium. I went down a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t sure if I was going to make it back, but made good progress through the week and decided I could race. I’m still a little sore, though today was a crazy day! The clouds were all over the place – it was hot and cold, and then the rain came down. This track is like concrete, so the rain made it tough, but it was fun. The whoops were tough, as I showed in the Heat, but we remounted well and came back with second in the Main, so I’m pumped to finish the Supercross season off like this."

        The 250SX regions were combined at the Salt Lake City finale, as the coveted 250SX East/West Showdown rounded out the series. As the times were compiled from the day's qualifying sessions, Red Bull KTM duo Maximus Vohland and Tom Vialle concluded the timesheets in sixth and eighth places, respectively.

        Beginning with the 250SX East Heat race, Vialle battled the tricky track conditions and would finish just shy of a transfer position in 11th. It was a similar story for Vohland in the 250SX West Heat, who finished one spot out of contention in 10th, and would join Vialle in the LCQ. 

        Conditions would worsen after the skies opened, with both Vialle and Vohland presented with an added challenge as the gates dropped. French rookie Vialle launched to the holeshot and would earn a third-place ride and a place in the Main Event, whilst Vohland’s sixth would mark the conclusion of his night.

        In the 250SX East/West Showdown Main Event, Vialle powered his KTM 250 SX-F to a top-five start, avoiding the opening lap carnage as he battled toward the front of the pack. A small mistake soon saw the number 128 on the ground momentarily, before salvaging a 14th-place finish by the race's end. 

        Tom Vialle: "The day didn’t begin so well here in Salt Lake City as I had to go through the LCQ. Happy to finish third there and transfer through to the Main Event, though had almost the last gate pick. Thankfully, I got a great start, I was third, but a couple of mistakes put me in P5 for two laps, then had a small crash. I was up the back, although happy to charge to where I did, and happy to finish the Supercross season healthy in eighth overall and learn a lot for next year."

        Maximus Vohland: "Tough night for me in Salt Lake. I got a bad start in the Heat and struggled to make up positions. Ended up missing qualifying for the Main by one spot and had to go to the LCQ, where I got a better start, but struggled with the mud and just didn’t find my groove, which meant I missed out on the Main Event. Not the way I wanted to end my 2023 SX season, but I’m healthy and looking forward to outdoors in a couple of weeks."

        The 2023 AMA Supercross Championship season marked an impressive return to form for two-time 450SX champion Cooper Webb before being injured, who had secured two race wins, nine podiums, and also third-place overall aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION in the final championship standings. 

        Premier class teammate Plessinger finished the 450SX season in seventh position, while Vohland was sixth overall in the 250SX West standings, and double MX2 World Champion Vialle took eighth position in the final 250SX East standings to complete his first Supercross campaign.

        Red Bull KTM Factory Racing will now shift its attention outdoors to the upcoming Pro Motocross Championship, which commences in Pala, California, on May 27, marking the second portion of the inaugural SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) season.

          Binder stars as second MotoGP™ Sprint winner in Argentina!

          MotoGP barreled onto the quick kinks and climes of the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit for the Gran Premio Michelin de la Republica Argentina. Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Brad Binder thrilled the fans with a remarkable launch from 15th to win the second ever MotoGP Tissot Sprint by fractions of a second. Teammate Jack Miller grabbed 10th place having moved up from 16th. Deniz Öncü shone in Moto3™ with 2nd spot.

          • Astonishing performance from Brad Binder to earn first MotoGP Sprint victory
          • Binder accumulates 12 world championship points to climb to 4th in the standings
          • Jack Miller again shows his fast acclimatization to the KTM RC16 with 10th spot and regains ground
          • Deniz Öncü stars with the Red Bull KTM Ajo RC4 to emerge from Moto3 Q1 and take 2nd on the grid

          From Portugal to the west, and fast. Argentina was the destination for MotoGP with barely a pause between an intense start to the 2023 season and the transcontinental trip to South America. The teams swapped trucks for freight and road for air miles as the fans and fever descended on Termas for the second year in a row.

          Brad Binder had made good progress from the discomfort of his neck problem that limited some of his potential in Portugal and the South African wheeled the KTM RC16 to 15th place in qualification after MotoGP suffered low grip conditions and unstable weather with bouts of rainfall on Saturday. In the 12-lap Sprint Binder scorched from the bottom of the fifth row of the grid, cut his way to 5th in the opening corners and seized control by the third lap. Brad put the #33 on top of the podium for the first time since his victory in 2021 in Austria.

          Jack Miller, bubbling after a fast and proactive debut for the team In Portugal, continued to improve. The Australian, a former Pole Position holder at Termas, qualified in 16th and also made a strong start in the Sprint. He crossed the line in 10th, just five seconds behind his teammate and built his pace up through the distance; clocking his best lap just two circulations from the finish.

          The 12-lap dash on Saturday was the ‘appetizer’ and means MotoGP will now look to run 25 laps at full distance for the Grand Prix on Sunday. The race program starts at 16.00 CET with Moto3. MotoGP blasts away from the lights at 19.00 CET.

          Brad Binder, 15th in qualification, 1st in the Sprint: “I surprised myself a little bit: what a start. I got super-tight in Turn 1, held the inside line and then just picked them off one at a time. I thought if I could go to the front and fight like hell then maybe I could stay there and the plan worked. I could hear the boys behind me at the end but brought it home. Thanks to my team; the step from yesterday was unreal, the bike was fantastic and I look forward to see how we can manage tomorrow.”

          Jack Miller, 16th in qualification, 10th in the Sprint: “I struggled a lot at the beginning of the race and it seemed to get better lap by lap and by lap six I was starting to get more comfortable. I was able to improve. I was trying really hard to catch back to Fabio [Quartararo] and [Jorge] Martin in front of me and I was making some headway there. I think it was the first time in my career that I have prayed for more laps than there was! Brad showed the bike has all the capabilities. He qualified one position in front of me on the grid and he made it work, that’s for certain, I could not believe it. He rode a mega race. The bike has great potential and I could make some decent overtakes and put it where I wanted. It’s all practice for tomorrow.”

          Francesco Guidotti, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager: “Super! An incredible race by Brad. He had an amazing start. Very clean and not too aggressive. He passed like a champion and defended the lead on the last lap like a lion. Unfortunately for Jack he was still missing grip at the start of the race and got stuck in the group but the pace was good. The race pace was really fast for everyone and it was difficult to overtake. We hoped to be better than we managed in qualification and this was the result.”

          BRISK continues to add the spark to KTM Factory Racing for 2023

          Ver Perfil

          Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teams in both the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship and FIM Enduro competition will be fired into the fray thanks to spark plug specialists BRISK for 2023.

          KTM began an official association with BRISK in 2022 and the Czech firm’s technology helped towards the desired level of performance across both motocross tracks and enduro stages. Among the wins and podium results, Tom Vialle’s exciting MX2 world championship victory, Manuel Lettenbichler’s Hard Enduro title and Josep Garcia’s Manufacturer and Teams crowns in Enduro2 showed how BRISK’s hardware could benefit the KTM SX-F, KTM EXC and KTM EXC-F motorcycles for the demands of the highest levels of racing.

          BRISK hails from Tábor, close to the city of Prague, and was established almost 90 years ago. This long history comes with a wealth of experience, particularly in offroad motorsports, but also means their R&D and technical support departments react quickly to the challenges and changes of world championship contests. Once the gate drops or the clock starts then success often goes hand-in-hand with testing, evaluation, dependability and consistency and this is why KTM is happy to align with BRISK for the season ahead.
