• Grant will focus his attentions on forming a new professional Supermoto team under the Langston Racing umbrella and train for the upcoming ESPN X Games, and also for the 2004 AMA Supermoto series.
• KTM will provide Grant two factory Supermoto motorcycles and full parts support to compete in the AMA Supermoto series and the upcoming X games.
Grant stated, “I would like to thank KTM for the great support and equipment for the past five years and also for their understanding of my current medical condition. The doctors have assured me that with sometime away from the pounding that a rider’s wrist takes in Supercross and Motocross, I should be able to return at a 100% for the 2005 SX season opener at Anaheim. I’ve also been told because of the little amount of stress that Supermoto puts on a rider’s wrists, racing these events will not be a problem for me to compete in and will not impede my healing process. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am about the opportunity to compete this summer in my first X-Games and I hope to be able to be able to provide KTM with their first Gold Medal in the X-Games and defend my AMA Supermoto championship this fall. I also want to thank my other sponsors, Parts Unlimited, Thor, Alpinestars, M2R, Scott USA & Etnies for being supportive during my recovery from my injury.”KTM motocross manager, Larry Brooks commented, “Grant has been a true Champion during his entire racing career with KTM. His dedication, hard work, and tenacity exemplify the goals we have established for our team. We wish him continued success in all his future racing endeavors and are looking forward to help him win one more championship in the process.”KTM North America’s President, Rod Bush added, “Grant has accomplished so much with KTM over the past five years, we can’t thank him enough for all he’s done to help establish our marque as a serious contender in the World and U.S. motocross scene. We wish him and Langston racing all the best. I look forward to seeing him go out on top with KTM with one more championship under his belt.”
