Team Ohlins USA to Compete on KTM Motorcycles, through Langston Motorsports

Team Ohlins Press Release

Hendersonville, North Carolina: Ohlins USA is proud to announce that Team Ohlins USA is racing in the 2012 AMA Pro Racing SX and MX series on KTM 250 SX-F motorcycles, through its partnership with Langston Motorsports, and with three proven riders looking to score points. As a KTM dealer, Langston Motorsports hooked up with this deal, bringing it to the team.

Two of Team Ohlins USA's soon-to-be-announced riders tested the KTMs in Southern California and both were impressed with the speed and potential of the KTM 250 SX-F. These Team Ohlins USA riders, and a full list of team sponsors, will be announced soon.

The SX Lites East events in which Team Ohlins USA will be competing can be found on the Ohlins USA website. The team's first outing in competition will be the Supercross in Arlington, Texas, February 18, 2012.

Team Ohlins USA Manager, seasoned MX champion Grant Langston, said, "We were presented with a number of options but we unanimously, through testing, chose to go with KTM. After testing at a variety of tracks the team as a whole wanted KTM: all the riders agreed, the crew, everyone. That creates a shared confidence, which is a great boost for starting the season."

Ohlins USA Off Road Manager, Stacey Berger, said, "Working with KTM is a great opportunity for Team Ohlins USA. With their support through Langston Motorsports, and the team we have put together, our road to success should be a short one. The KTM has proven itself on many levels of racing, so to start with this platform was an easy choice for us."
