KTM Australia will continue on as the title sponsor of the Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMXC) through to the year 2020 to mark an impressive eight-year partnership.

Serving as the title sponsor of the largest junior motorcycle event in the country since 2013, KTM Australia’s general manager Jeff Leisk recognises the importance of supporting the development of junior riders domestically.

“Junior development is crucial towards our industry, without it we simply do not have a sport,” Leisk said. “A key strategy of KTM is to give aspiring young riders the best riding experience possible from their very first ride on a motorcycle. KTM is the only brand in the market that can offer customers the ability to progress in a competitive sense all the way through their motorcycling journey.

“Many riders have famously progressed through their entire careers solely on KTM machinery and the brand has assisted numerous riders to achieve their dreams of winning titles. KTM is heavily involved at each AJMXC, including providing a team to assist with technical support and spare parts. It’s all part of KTM’s mission to provide exceptional service to its customers and racers.”

Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle also shares the same vision as Leisk and looks forward to a continued relationship with the innovative Austrian manufacturer.

“It’s great to hear the news that KTM Australia has chosen to once again renew itself as naming rights sponsor for the AJMXC,” Doyle commented. “KTM has been unyielding in its support for the AJMXC and we are looking forward to growing the championship, fostering new talent and encouraging young riders together. It is just so important to have a partner like KTM who’s focus is on the sports future.”

The 2017 Australian Junior Motocross Championship will take place at Horsham in Victoria from 30 September to 7 October.
