KTM Australia has announced it will partner with My Sport Live in broadcasting the final day of competition at next week’s KTM Australian Junior Motocross Championship in Horsham, Victoria.

Known as KTM TV, the coverage can be viewed through the KTM Australia Facebook page and will feature interviews and more.

A special live, hour-long Thursday afternoon panel show hosted by Kevin Williams will take place at 4:00pm and will feature some of the most respected members of the KTM fold, starting with general manager Jeff Leisk.

Leisk will be joined by one of the most respected team managers in the game, Rob Twyerould, riders Daniel McCoy and Kirk Gibbs, plus KTM Junior Racing Team champion-builder Glenn Macdonald as they discuss the week’s various events and emerging hotshots.

Through the week KTM will have a massive supporting presence on the ground, starting with KTM Technical Service which will be there for the duration of the event as a support centre for KTM owners requiring setup advice and support for any mechanical emergencies.

KTM Spare Parts Service in conjunction with Geelong’s Moto Tech KTM will also be there, carrying general consumables like brakes, sprockets and chains to breakables. It’s even possible to order certain major parts if required.

Tim Cole, the KTM race team physiologist will be doing the rounds offering all competitors advice on diet, training, recovery and all the tricks to keeping their bodies coping with a week of frenzied motocross action.

From Thursday, Motorex KTM team manager and KTM Technical Services manager for Australia and New Zealand Twyerould will also be there, and his impressive wealth of knowledge and experience will be accessible for help and advice to KTM owners free of charge.

“A level of involvement like this is quite unique,” said KTM’s marketing manager Greg Chambers. “We do it for our customers because we believe they deserve that support at nationals to ensure they give themselves the best chance for a strong finish.

“It adds value to being a KTM owner and KTM is proud to be the naming rights sponsor for the next three years. Junior racing is a huge part of our business, since we have models from 50cc and we can support kids all the way through their progression to seniors.

“KTM looks forward to some great results, not just from our Motorex team of Wayde Carter, Mitch Evans, World number two Hunter Lawrence and Callum Norton, but also a bunch of other top KTM kids including Caleb Grothues, Rhys Budd, Bailey Malkiewicz and Ritchie Evans.”
