FMX: Schubring launches KTM team with SP Tools backing

Australian Freestyle Motocross star Matt Schubring has signed on the dotted line with a brand new team and naming sponsor for 2010.

Scheduled to ride the entire Crusty Demons Tour of Australia, as well as multiple FMX shows, demos and competitions throughout Australasia, Schubring will once again be a regular star on the FMX circuit and bring some of the biggest and most dangerous action sports stunts to the table.

Thanks to the opportunity to launch his own brand new team, Schubring couldn’t be happier, with his SP TOOLS KTM team striving toward further developing his already extremely strong fan base and build a greater profile amongst the mainstream community.

“I’m really excited to form our own team SP TOOLS KTM,” Schubring said. “SP TOOLS are fantastic products and I’ve always felt comfortable riding the KTM250SX so it has all worked out perfectly. Right now I feel like I’m the healthiest I’ve been in a couple of years and I have an extremely busy schedule booked in. I’m looking forward to a huge year!”

SP TOOLS are no stranger to partnering with some of Australia’s best motorsports athletes and for 2010 have continued their support of the Stone Brothers V8 Supercar team and young gun driver Shane Van Gisbergen.

“SP TOOLS is looking forward to having Matt as part of the growing stable of young motorsport superstars. Matt is one of the best freestyle riders in the country and he fits perfectly with the direction we want to take the SP brand.” Kevin Davis said, managing director of SP TOOLS.

“Our fresh approach to tools and tool kits appeals to guys of an age that follow young stars like Matt – we couldn’t think of a better guy to be involved with.”
