THOR MX is very proud to announce a partnership with the ever-dominant FMF KTM Factory Racing team. Drawing on over five decades of purpose-built racewear to support riders in every form of off-road racing, THOR knows full well what it means to provide the best-possible racewear and hard goods to endure the toughest disciplines in our sport. To define this team as “diverse” would be an understatement, as the varied series raced and subsequent championships won year after year are nothing short of purely phenomenal.

Returning to the factory team this season will be three-time and reigning WORCS Champion, Taylor Robert, looking to defend his WORCS title while also competing in the AMA National Extreme Off-Road Championship. Josh Toth returns for his fourth season with the team and Ben Kelley for his second season, both vying for the #1 plates of the GNCC and National Enduro Championships

Meanwhile, two former KTM support riders, Trystan Hart and Dante Oliveira will make their debut with the factory squad in 2021. Hart is set to defend his 2020 AMA Grand National Extreme Championship (TKO) title, while concurrently pursuing the 2021 AMA Endurocross Championship. Oliveira is also entering a title-defense season as the reigning AMA National Grand Prix Champion, while he is also eyeing the top spot in the WORCS 2021 series.

After a historic GNCC racing career, punctuated by eight National Championships and the all-time wins record, Kailub Russell previously announced that 2020 would be his final season leading the XC1 division. Heading into 2021, Russell will compete in select events while preparing to represent Team USA during this year’s International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Lombardy-Piedmont, Italy.

“I’m very excited to be back with THOR, a brand that our team has worked in the past with great success, so I’m looking forward working with them again,” said Antti Kallonen, Team Manager. “With the different races and conditions our team faces every weekend across the country, it was important to align us with a brand that supports the sport and the demands of off-road racing with great fitment, features and the look of the gear.”

“We are quite pleased to be working with the riders and crew at KTM again. Their program has always been above reproach, and they have an incredible history that’s packed with success in the demanding world of off-road racing,” said James Zomerdyke, THOR’s Rider Services Manager.
