Can't believe there isn't a thread on this...unless I missed it?

Mentioned on Pulp this week that it's rumored Tom Vialle is headed to America next year.

Does he have any significant Supercross experience?

With KTM, or is another team making a run at him?

I guess things could change, but he signed a 4 year contract extension with KTM that goes through 2025 and he's moving up to MXGP next year.

Heard the same thing on french tv, talks have been made so let's see but that would be really awesome to see him move here

I was at the Spanish GP and have it from a very reliable source that he and his family are in discussions with people in the US about him racing here next year.

If Lewis Philips, JT, and Matthes are all saying they’ve heard it id say it’s a strong possibility

He has to win the championship again & this year or it’s not going happen wink

Maybe come here, fill the gap KTM has in their 250 program for a few years.. then go back to mxgp when he’s a little older.

Huh, didn't expect that. I thought Benistant was the one that will go next

Rumor was , he doesn't want to move up and wants to get another year or two on the 250's. He'll be aged out next year in MXGP. So a move to the states would be an option , which in my opinion , he'll do it. He is also known to be able to ride SX pretty well too. Another crafty Frenchman may be here next year. AND......it's not like KTM couldn't use another strong rider over here in the 250 class.

Don’t know if France still have their own SX championship, but in history they had one and the French riders have often been the best european riders to ride sx.

Shoot I didn't even notice it was Bondo!

Coincidentally I was just talking to someone the other day about ol' Bondo putting the wood to everyone at a WORCS race in Goldendale, WA on a KX250 years ago. Dude absolutely rode the wheels off the bike that day. Unreal. Musta been about '05?

Well, rumour in the MXGP paddock is that Benistant will race orange next season. So it's a possibility that he will fill Vialle's place (regardless if he goes MXGP or AMA).

|

6/15/2022 2:22 PM

I hope they get that new bike figured out for him. Works parts or previous gen engines will be out of the question here.

Vialle will not be 250gp next year so ktm need a rider.

KTM needs fresh riders for the AMA 250 and Tom Vialle could be that match. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised to see Maxime Renaux on a 250 KTM...

I can’t imagine leaving Wilvo. Seems like he’s fitting well over there. Especially to go back to the 250 class considering he pushed so hard to go 450 this year.

I'm cool with Vialle coming over, he'll bring some fire. The rest of the 250 boys best be on it, because Vialle going to start at the front all the time.

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

With ZachO retired, it's JA21 and AP for me...

Guess the star engine isn’t enough for him to stay blue lol

He’s aging out and there is no mx1 rides available, so we get to see him.
