KTM North America is the title sponsor of the AMA National Adventure Riding Series. For the 2017 season, the KTM AMA National Adventure Riding Series offers 20 two-day events in locations across the country.
“KTM is very excited to be a part of the AMA National Adventure Riding Series,” KTM Ride Orange Manager Mark Hyde said. “We offer a robust line of adventure motorcycles designed to perform on a variety of terrain, all while being extremely comfortable. Sponsoring the series gives us a great opportunity to visit with our customers, talk about and demo our products with potential customers and be able to get out and enjoy the sport together.”
Hyde — a three-time national champion and a six-time member of the International Six Days Enduro, including the 1982 ISDE U.S. Trophy Team — said people should not be surprised if eight-time AMA National Enduro Champion Mike Lafferty happens to be helping at events throughout the year, along with other special KTM guests. Lafferty is now a KTM Ride Orange assistant manager.
This year, as part of the sponsorship agreement, a participant in the series will be selected for a free entry in the 15th Annual KTM Adventure Rider Rally to take place in 2018. The entry will include travel expenses, meals, use of a motorcycle, lodging and gear.
“The AMA appreciates KTM’s support of the series, and we look forward to KTM actively participating in events organized by our AMA clubs and promoters throughout the next two years,” said Assistant Recreational Riding and Volunteer Manager Heather Wilson. “KTM not only manufactures adventure motorcycles, the company offers regular opportunities for camaraderie with its customers. That mindset ties in perfectly with the AMA series.”
