Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM 2021 rider line-up confirmed

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM has confirmed a two-rider line-up for the 2021 AMA Supercross season with Joey Savatgy joining a returning Justin Bogle.

At a KTM Factory presser in the U.S. the Austrian-based manufacturer unveiled their rider line-ups for the 2021 AMA Supercross season.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing announced a three-rider squad – former Supercross champion Copper Webb and French ace Marvin Musquin would return on their 450 SX-F FEs and Maximus Vohland would join the team as they brought in their 250cc effort in-house for the first time since 2015. The TLD/Red Bull team have switched to KTM’s sister brand GASGAS for 2021.

Until very recently, the media were expecting Blake Baggett to return for another term with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM but at the event in California it was Savatgy’s #17 that was unveiled. It’s reported that the team were unable to agree terms with Baggett. Where the #4 will end up is currently unknown.

Savatgy, who was with the now shuttered JGRMX Suzuki in 2020 had been seen testing with Smartop MotoConcepts Honda but was missing when they announced their full rider line-up recently.
