KTM North America signs on as title sponsor for the 2009 AMA KTM
National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series



PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- From the EXC off-road race bike to the 990 Super Enduro, KTM builds some of the most versatile and extreme dual-sport motorcycles available today. Now, the company is putting its name on the country's premier schedule of dual-sport events, the AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series.

As part of the three-year relationship, at the end of each season KTM will award one lucky rider in the series with one of the most popular bikes in the company's lineup: a new KTM 530 EXC.

"KTM has been a pioneer in outfitting top-line off-road racing motorcycles with full street-legal equipment right from the factory," said AMA Director of Business Development Jim Moore. "Likewise, events in the AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series combine miles of hardcore trail with flowing backroads and gorgeous two-track. KTM is the perfect partner for this series, and we're looking forward to working with them to make these popular events even better."

KTM North America President Jon-Erik Burleson added, "While KTM is known for building motorcycles that are 'Ready to Race,' we are also fully dedicated to the recreational rider. While that commitment has long been apparent in our lineup, which includes one of the industry's broadest ranges of dual-sport motorcycles, we're excited about the opportunity to extend that commitment through this sponsorship of the AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series. I'm personally looking forward to this season and awarding one of the series' diehard participants the keys to a brand new KTM 530 EXC."

AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series events include miles of trail connected by some of the best dirt and gravel roads the nation's backcountry has to offer. Often multi-day events (with one-day participation optional), these rides include route sheets of well-marked courses of 100 miles or more each day. While the rides aren't competitive in nature, in many cases the terrain is just as challenging as what you'll find on a national-caliber off-road race.

The AMA has been promoting this national series since 1987, and the events have demonstrated strong growth in both participation and number. Currently, for 2009, the schedule for the AMA KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series includes 23 events.

The series kicks off April 25-26 in Renfro Valley, Ky., and there are events scheduled in Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oregon, New Hampshire, Illinois, Indiana, California, Virginia, Alabama, Arizona and New Jersey.
