Good little read - substantiates what Simon Cravar said after visiting the KTM factory and meeting Trieb. KTM are only 4 years in and look at them already.

If I had mentioned in 2019 that KTM would be winning races in 2020 I would have been laughed at , but they are becoming regular podium finishers . Yes , there is the luck factor , and as their bikes have improved so they have become luckier . Good for them  :thumleft:

FFS - KTM have only been at it for 4 years and already schooling the Japs to catch a wake up as they cannot continue to think they will dominate relying on old school approaches ... yes both in R&D and managing riders.

Before we get too ahead of ourselves lets wait for the first championship on a KTM. Currently 6th and 8th yes not bad for 4 years of trying.
