Taddy Blazusiak: Recovery, the new Enduro range and Erzberg

Taddy Blazusiak is a man on a mission. The ultra-successful Enduro-ace has had a tough time in the last 12 months, but he’s finally back on track. Blazusiak joined the recent KTM Enduro Launch last week, where a new generation of bikes was unveiled, so we caught up with him on the good, the bad and the new bikes!

#inthisyear1976: International success for the Farioli Team

The KTM Factory Team for the Enduro World Championship 2016 was introduced in Arco Di Trento in Italy at the start of March – keen observers will certainly have noticed the Farioli logo on the riders’ jerseys. Farioli – the name is synonymous with fifty years of Enduro sport success. And exactly forty years ago, Farioli’s riders enjoyed a double success in what was at the time the Enduro European Championship.

Interview of the Month: Checking in with double AMA Supercross Champ Ryan Dungey

Friday night at Le Mans and the MotoGP paddock has finally quietened. Mechanics and staff are busy toiling in the claustrophobic pit garages and the odd bike engine revs in the distance. There might be an eight-hour time difference to the west coast of the USA but – in contrast our situation – the AMA Supercross series is on the edge of wrapping.

Herlings’ KTM 250 SX-F: 5 changes to ‘84’s Grand Prix bike

Six Grands Prix and twelve motos; Jeffrey Herlings not only dominated the start of the 2016 FIM MX2 Motocross World Championship, he utterly creamed the opposition with a perfect scorecard. The Dutchman’s Red Bull KTM factory bike is renowned for being remarkably similar to the production 250 SX-F with only engine internals and special suspension parts from WP Performance Systems as the principal alterations.

KTM trio at the 1000 km Hockenheim

Norbert Thaler, Hannes Maier and Thomas Gradinger didn’t have much time for egg hunting this Easter. The three KTM test riders were too busy tearing around the track at the 1000 km Hockenheim on a KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R.

Interview of the Month: When I’m 64 – Five minutes with Bo Bendsneyder

In Catalan the word ‘bo’ also means ‘good’ or ‘of quality’. Rookie Dutchman Bo Bendsneyder has been catching attention just four Grands Prix into his greenshoots career. As his name would indicate to some of his team and those in the Granollers town there is something special about the ‘64’.

Fabio Farioli: Deep roots in Enduro – The making of a winning team

The Farioli name is synonymous with Enduro. Since the 1970s the family has been involved with the KTM brand and has been a mainstay in its racing era since the very beginning.

Joan Olivé (ESP) & Karel Hanika (CZE) Australia 2014

From the knee to the need: Moving on in MotoGP

Joan Olivé is a familiar face in the Red Bull KTM set-up. The former Grand Prix athlete and owner of nine podium finishes now helps the current factory riders and has transitioned from one side of the pit wall to the other. We wanted to ask how the transformation felt for the (still trim) thirty-one year old Spaniard and how an ex-racer can still fit into the world where he was once one of the leading names …
