After weeks of speculation as to where the two-time MX1 Champ would end up, the questions can stop!
It is with tremendous excitement that KTM Canada announces the addition of Colton Facciotti to the 2012 & 2013 team roster.
KTM Canada is looking to put their riders on top of the podium next season and Colton Facciotti has proven time and again that he has what it takes to do it with consistency. “More than ever, KTM’s focus
is on the motocross market” mentions Florian Burguet, KTM Canada General Manager. “Our 2012 SX product line up and our business attitude are now perfectly aligned for successful results. At a time when
other motorcycle companies may question their involvement in racing, KTM means to do the opposite and reinforces its commitment to winning” adds Burguet.
Colton will make a unique addition to the team, aboard his 2012 KTM 450 SX-F. He has a wealth of experience in Canada as well as in the United States. KTM Racing Manager Andy White comments: “Just like in the US with De Coster, Dungey, Roczen and Musquin, our new Canadian team will respect a non-compromise racing approach. We will be extremely victory-driven and Colton is definitely the first step in building a complete championship team.”
After testing his new 450 ride, Colton is equally as excited as the rest of the team stating “I am ready for
my new challenges and can’t wait for the first moto gate to drop this summer. I will definitely be working
hard to bring home a first MX1 championship for the KTM team.”
The team training will be supervised by 5-time Canadian National Champion Jean-Sebastien Roy (JSR)
who will now operate as Athlete Manager.
The rest of the KTM team will be completed and communicated shortly. Don’t miss anything and stay
