Story moments, highlights, and other markers of KTM’s first FIM World Championship from 2022 and how Tom Vialle faced adversity for a memorable motocross success.
The most successful race team in the modern era of MXGP heads into a new phase for the soon-to-launch 2022 season. Technical Director Dirk Gruebel answers several key questions as the 66th FIM Grand Prix campaign looms.
2020 MX2 World Champion Tom Vialle is the best starter in MXGP. Period. The Frenchman accumulated 22 holeshots from the 28 ‘gatedrops’ he’s made in 2021, more than any other racer in any class. We tried to ask for some of his secrets.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing lost two of their five Grand Prix athletes to injury during the intense and condensed 2020 FIM MXGP World Championship. What happens when Pro racers are forced away from the track? We asked Jeffrey Herlings and Rene Hofer to check in from their sofas…
Tom Vialle almost came out of nowhere to announce himself as KTM’s new fizzing star at FIM Motocross World Championship level. How did an eighteen-year-old rookie shock Grand Prix? We asked …

#inthisyear2009: Marvin Musquin becomes the MX2 world champion – today he is one of KTM’s best prospects in the AMA Supercross World Championship
Back when Marvin Musquin won his first world championship race in early 2009, the Frenchman was still largely an unknown quantity. But that would change very quickly. Never before has anyone left their mark on a season in the way Musquin did back then at just 19-years old. Blessed with immense talent, he impressed the world of motocross, securing his first MX2 world championship title at the end of the season on the KTM 250 SX-F.
He just had to score four more points this weekend at the last Grand Prix of the year, but Jorge Prado can already call himself the new MX2 World Champion. An injury forced title-contender Pauls Jonass to undergo an operation and prevented his chances of defending the MX2 crown in Imola, Italy. Just before this unexpected turn, we sat down with the Spanish Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider to fire a few questions in his direction.
