The KTM Racing Team is happy to welcome Kenneth Gundersen back.
KTM has signed the young Norwegian rider in the MX GP class for two years. At the moment Kenneth is 5th in the MX GP classification but he has a lot of chances to finish in the top four at the end of the Championship. KTM believes a lot in his talent and is looking forward to working with him and fulfilling his potential to reach great results.
Team Manager Toby Gustafson believes Kenneth has the right qualities to become a champion in the future: «Kenneth is only 21 but is already an experienced rider and one of the most professional of his age. His style suits our 450 four-stroke and Im sure we will do a great work together. Him and Steve are a good team that will give us a lot of satisfactions!»
Kenneth Gundersen said: «Im really excited and looking forward to going back to KTM. I had really good time with them; its a very professional team easy to work with.
In the MX GP class the top 3 riders are very strong and they have a lot of experience, Im still young and I have a lot to learn, but I will work very hard to reach their level! Im seeing Joel is doing very well in this class, that means the bike is good but of course I know its a combination bike and rider!
Im happy to have Steve as a teammate because we can grow together and hopefully learn a lot from an older and experienced rider if we will have any in the Team ! Im sure and Im ready to have two good years in KTM!
