Bau is excited to bring Teka onboard as a major sponsor of the Red Bull/KTM Racing Team for 2011.

Roczen, who along with KTM's Max Nagl, helped vault Team Germany onto the MXoN podium in Lakewood, Colorado, will be racing in the U.S. AMA Supercross Lites before returning to contest the MX2 World Championship. Roczen and his teammate, Jeffrey Herlings, are two of the youngest riders in the senior paddock and are expected to deliver the most exciting track action this coming season.
