Accomplished off-road motorcycle engineer, Andreas Hölzl, has been appointed as the new head of all KTM AG Rally Teams, effective immediately.

Hölzl succeeds Norbert Stadlbauer, who led the team to Dakar victories in 2022 and 2023, along with FIM World Rally-Raid Championship titles in 2021 and 2022.

Andreas Hölzl, who previously managed the Husqvarna Factory Racing Enduro Team and has 20 years of experience with KTM AG. His extensive background includes overseeing Husqvarna’s EnduroGP and Hard Enduro World Championship programs, contributing to Enduro bike development, and supporting riders in securing multiple championship titles.

Before his enduro management role, Andreas had rally experience, including participation in the 2009 Dakar Rally in South America with KTM’s assistance trucks. His deep involvement in both disciplines positions him perfectly to lead the prestigious rally program.

Andreas will immediately take charge of the rally program, with Norbert Stadlbauer serving as a consultant in the coming months. During Norbert’s tenure, KTM AG achieved remarkable success, winning the Dakar Rally in 2022 and 2023 with the latest generation rally bike.

Andreas Hölzl expressed his excitement and commitment to maintaining the team’s momentum. “It goes without saying that I am super excited to be officially appointed as team manager of our prestigious rally program – it really is both an honor and an incredible opportunity for me. Over many decades KTM group’s rally program has enjoyed so much success, which is testament to the always ongoing work and commitment behind the scenes. Stepping into the role, I’m fully aware of the rich heritage and high standards that have been set by those before me. My aim is not just to continue this winning history but to build on it. Drawing from my past experience and the strength of our team.”

Robert Jonas, Vice President of Motorsports Offroad, acknowledged Norbert’s contributions and welcomed Andreas Hölzl as the new KTM AG Rally Team Manager. Jonas highlighted Hölzl’s extensive experience in team management and motorcycle testing and development, emphasizing his motivation for the new role.
