I have not given much credence to the JS and KTM rumors because quite frankly I though they were complete nonsense. I just could not see KTM coming up with that kind of money.
So I come across a comment by Ivan Cervantes who has just signed with GasGas for next year. Cervantes is a 3 time World Enduro Champion and has ridden for KTM most of his career. The interview was in spanish and I had to use a translator but one comment he made was that KTM was cutting back on some offroad to free up money to hire JS. I'm still not sold this is in the works but it was an interesting comment.

Best money they could spend.
If Stew won on one, big 4 sales would take a shit, badly.

JS has already said in a podcast that he has resigned with L&M Racing and they will be back on Yamaha's for 2011.

1 year deal? KTM Pretty smart and successful in Road bikes and cars too.

They save this year and buy a top guy.
IMO, the others arent doing well and KTM seems to be getting stronger.

My next new bike will be orange.

MXlarge: There were all those rumors about James Stewart racing for KTM. Was there any truth in those rumors, are you dealing with him?

Beirer: It isn’t really a realistic first step. We have learnt that lesson in Europe when you add the superstar before the bike or team is ready (in 2006 KTM signed Seb Tortelli and Mickeal Pichon and both failed miserably), it doesn’t bring you anywhere. Maybe that rumor came because of our close relationship with Red Bull, but James Stewart is not our main target today, we are focusing on many other things. We want a strong Supercross bike for next year and get a really good rider, nothing around the other story.

I think they are up to something and it involves MX in the US. Just not sure what it is yet. My best guess. If Cairoli shows he can compete with Dungey at the MXDN he will be brought to the US.

Cairoli is scared to race in the US.

Did he actually say he'll be on a Yamaha or just back with L&M? I forget?

Maybe he just doesn't like your red neck + bureaucracy filled country and is happy with his life in Italy? Not everyone craves a bit of the USA. Would be cool to see him race the Nats though! ha.

KTM doesn't need JS. Mistake IMO. JS is at the end of his career. Dungey could beat him no matter what he's on. If he was on a KTM they would just say it was the bike.

The older I get, the faster I was. Posting without a cast on is fun!

I wouldnt care if he won with two flat tires I wouldn't buy one. I have owned one KTM in my life and that was enough for me.

Possibly. I don't like red necks either, but I am from BFA, not the USA so this has nothing to do with my country.

It's not an Interview, the only words from the rider are to confirm he will be in GAS GAS next year. The rest of the article, I dont know who wrote it, or where did he get that info but it's not something Ivan said.

Thanks for clearing that up. The translation was really confusing. Like the most confusing spanglish you could imagine.
