Former Australian motocross champion Kirk Gibbs will headline this weekend’s KTM 2-Stroke Cup at Mount Kembla in New South Wales, which will feature solely junior and senior two-stroke categories.

Gibbs, who’s currently in his off-season after signing a motocross-only contract in 2017, says he’s excited to race aboard a the KTM 250 SX machine, which he hasn’t ridden since 2013 when he first joined the KTM Motocross Racing Team.

“It should be good, I haven’t ridden a two-stroke since 2013,” Gibbs told “I’m probably going to be a little rusty on one I’m sure, but it will be good to do a nice fun race and come down to support KTM, who are supporting it.

“It will be good to just have a race where it’s just cruisy and where it doesn’t matter where you come or what happens. I’m really looking forward to it, the bike looks awesome and it looks really close to what we race with our four-strokes. It’s cool, I love two-strokes, I love the sound of them and when I had one I loved racing and riding one. It’s going to be a fun weekend.”

Now retired multi-time Australian champion Ryan Marmont has also been named to race the unique event amongst the extensive rider list, which is set to boast a 500cc division along with two vintage two-stroke classes.
