MURRIETA, CA – October 21, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – KTM Motorsports is pleased to welcome Canadian up-and-comer Trystan Hart to the FMF KTM Factory Racing Team roster to compete in the AMA EnduroCross Championship and the AMA Extreme Offroad Series, as well as select Extreme Enduro events through the 2023 race season.
Hart, who previously raced under the KTM-Supported FMF/Maxxis/RPM KTM Racing Team, continues to prove his merit against the top extreme offroad racers in the world having put in many stand-out performances across the global stage. Most recently crowned the AMA National Extreme Offroad Champion at the 2020 Tennessee Knockout and runner-up at the 2020 RevLimiter Extreme Enduro, Hart will officially begin his tenure with the FMF KTM Factory Racing Team later this week as he contests his first-ever AMA Super EnduroCross Championship aboard the KTM 350 EXC-F. Additionally, he will compete aboard the KTM 300 XC-W TPI in the AMA Extreme Offroad Series, as well as select Extreme Enduro events in the U.S.
Antti Kallonen: “I’m very pleased to be able to welcome Trystan to our team and to start working with him more closely to reach new goals for the next several years. Trystan has been a top contender for few years already representing our brand on the RPM KTM Support Team and the time has come for him to move under full factory support. I want to thank Mike Hurlbert and RPM KTM for providing Trystan the platform to develop into a winning rider.”
Trystan Hart: “It’s been a dream of mine for years to be a factory KTM rider and to now be living it is incredible. There are so many people that have helped me get to this point and I want to thank all of them, as well as my whole family and girlfriend. Also, a big thank you to KTM for believing in me.”
