No HMC KTM team in the 2009 AMA Supermoto season

 

 

Roadracerx had a little talk with HMC KTM team owner Mitch Hansen. During Mitch Hansen’s six-year tenure as the HMC Red Bull KTM Supermoto team owner, his riders have brought home two AMA Supermoto titles—the most recent coming with the 2008 Premier Title by Australian Troy Herfoss. But with economics dictating a KTM farewell to the American Supermoto racing next year, Mitch and HMC will likewise leave that series in favor of continuing to partner with KTM for the ’09 iteration of the Red Bull AMA U.S. Rookies Cup… while dreaming of a potential, eventual move to American Superbike racing in the meantime.
