All work no play for KTM

Both Tony Cairoli and Pauls Jonass made reference to the amount of work during the winter with the new KTM and Mattighofen team chief Dirk Gruebel confirmed that the entire team had been working long hours to ensure a continuation of their run of success.

“It’s a new frame, a new engine, everything, the base for 2019 production,” he said. “The engine is new internally and the new frame meant that we had to find a new set-up. We started from the settings on last year’s bike and have already found good solutions. At least it looks that way.”
