New Look KTM Off-Road Team Come Together For The First Time This Weekend At Archerfield Enduro-X

Posted:

KTM Off-Road Racing Team Riders Toby Price, Tye Simmonds and Daniel Sanders will race together for the first time this year as the 2015 InsureMyRide Australian Enduro-X Nationals series kicks off at Brisbane's Archerfield speedway this Saturday.

The popular Enduro-X format pits off-road racers against each other and the clock around a specially constructed course of natural and man-made obstacles including monster logs and boulders, with the three-round series decided across events in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The new-look KTM Off-Road Racing Team will see Toby Price racing for the first time since this year's Dakar Rally, where he crossed the finish line in Buenos Aires with a sensational podium finish that firmly established him as one of the fastest and most versatile off-road riders on the planet.

‰ÛÏEverything is feeling pretty good, I've been slowly recouping from Dakar." Price explained. "I haven't had enough enduro-X practice so I'm not quite where I need to be yet, but it's going to be fun and exciting, and it's the first round with our new team which is pretty cool.

"I'm going for the 350 because it suited me just a little bit better. Being the first round, I'm sure they are going to challenge us, so the course is bound to be something pretty special just like it was last year. Everyone will be out there to challenge so you can't count anyone out really. I‰Ûªve just got to try to nail some starts and minimise mistakes and see what the result is.

"Enduro cross is fun, but you can be on fire one minute, and the next minute you're almost a lap down. One mistake can cost you big time. But that's what makes it a little bit intriguing and something different.‰Û

Team Manger Ben Grabham is looking forward to getting the first big race underway for the 2015 racing season.

‰ÛÏWe are in as good a shape as we can be." Grabham stated. "We did our enduro-X testing late last year and the boys were looking pretty good at that stage then. Since then they‰Ûªve been doing their thing, Toby‰Ûªs done Dakar and Tye has done the desert race so the boys have got plenty of seat time.

"Enduro-X is tricky, I have raced it myself and I know that you can be the fastest guy out there, but luck has a little bit to do with it. As always you make your own luck, and we've made as much as we can. We've got Toby and Tye on the 350 EXC-F, and Daniel Sanders on his favourite 300 2-stroke.

"From myself to Mick Carusi our main mechanic, and to everyone over at KTM in Perth it's a big effort just to make the start line in this first race, so it will be good to get the first big race underway and basically see where we are at.‰Û
