They should give it to Marty after that ride in Geneva.

If I have the returning champ, I'm not looking for the fastest guy available. Finishing 8th instead of 10th doesn't do much for promotion and doesn't do much to help Webb up front. I'm also not looking for a situation where it's a potential tryout for a full time ride next year. I also don't need an injury prone rider who is trying to impress other teams.

I am looking for a guy who can move the needle marketing-wise, understands why he's filling that seat and how to provide value, and also won't feel like a security threat for Webb.

Reed makes sense.

Throw in the content creation potential, extra attention, and long term ROI due to the swan song and it's a no brainer for me.

4 of those guys are already on a factory KTM/Husky. Why.

Would Reed ditch Arma to sign with an energy drink?

Reed...for all the sentimental reasons.

Davalos...for all the right support rider reasons. He’s not going to challenge Cooper for wins, but he’ll be a great team player capable of keeping KTM in the top-10 consistently.

Poll is not counting votes correctly. I voted for Tickle and it’s showing zero

|

There’s only 2 options in my opinion who should fill that spot.
1.Reed because since this is his last season he will have huge media attention and the longest autograph lines.
2. Tickle because he never got to use his ride he earned before he got Wada’d. He did his time and deserves a second chance, he will be really hungry plus work extra hard to get solid results.

None of those names are Factory KTM worthy riders.

Edit - They wont touch Tickle again.

BS! Everyone knows Tickle got screwed over by WADA. He will be capable of top 10 results , or better and will be very popular with the fans...

Rulebook is the same for everybody.

I'll pick Reed or Davalos. Reed for the crowds he'd bring in and Davalos for possible results he could bring.

12/8/2019 4:01 PM

Tickle won’t race until February so it’s gotta go to Reed or Bloss. Everyone else got Factory Level bikes.
Tedder KTM will have factory support. I think Davalos will do better if he stays at Tedder, there should be a lot more pressure at RB KTM.

Everyone who keeps saying Davalos, read this. He will be on a factory KTM in 2020, signed and done.

I'm going with Marty too. Like you said, he is the perfect second rider for those exact reasons. If he can stay healthy for the next few years, I can't think of another rider who will just get results, and never rock the boat. If he can test, he's set for the rest of his career.

As touched on above, this is a fill in opportunity and not a permanent one. There is zero chance for a contract extension, and its not really a rehearsal, unless KTM has plans for a three rider effort in 2021.

Davalas just wants a shot on a good big bike, which he currently has with Tedder for what appears to be indoors and out. Would Tedder's team even allow him to jump over to Red Bull, then happily take him back for outdoors?

Plot twist: Do KTM even need to fill the seat?

Give some young up-and-comer a chance with the bike and support.
