KTM deserves a round of applause for what they’ve
managed to do in such a short time frame. They snatched
up Roger DeCoster at the end of 2010, brought Ryan
Dungey on board in 2012, and farmed Musquin and
Roczen from the Grand Prix circuit. In the past two years,
KTM garnered the 450 National Championship and 250
West Supercross title. Only Kawasaki and Honda have
been more successful in that span. KTM has climbed the
ladder of superiority in the rank-and-file world of
