Butler Brothers MX and Rocky Mountain ATV/MC have come to a multi-year agreement that will see Rocky Mountain ATV/MC takeover as the naming rights sponsor of the new-look Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM WPS team.

Previously known as WPS KTM, the team revealed that former Lucas Oil Pro Motocross 250MX champion Blake Baggett will join Davi Millsaps and Benny Bloss to complete their line-up for the 2017 season.

Baggett is a completely new addition to the team after formerly racing for the now defunct Yoshimura Factory Suzuki outfit, however Millsaps and Bloss have both been affiliated with the Butler Brothers MX squad throughout different stages of the 2016 season.

“We have always been blessed to have great sponsors, many of which have been long-time, loyal sponsors here at BBMX,” team owner Forrest Butler explained. “Rocky Mountain is the next chapter for us, and we are both pleased and very proud to announce our new race team, the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM WPS team.”

“We have a great rider line up this year with Davi Millsaps and Blake Baggett in the 450 class and rookie sensation Benny Bloss in the 250 class.”

The team is scheduled to make their debut at next weekend’s Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, USA.
