“While 2021 has been a resounding success on many levels, KTM have also had to endure some difficult and emotional moments and thoughts of the late Jason Dupasquier and Rene Hofer and their respective families will remain at the forefront long after another racing year begins,” adds the report.
All told, ‘the full range of emotions’ were met this season – and we can’t wait to see what the team gets up to for next year.
“To take this company to the track around the world means a big movement of so many pieces and the big key to the success comes from the people involved,” enthuses Pit Beirer, KTM’s Motorsports Director.
“From the brilliant riders – at the beginning, middle and end of their careers – to the guys at the factory, those in the pitlanes and the paddocks and the trucks, the whole operation needs a special focus to make it all work. When we can see the results of our job then this makes me very proud. We’ve celebrated this season but we’ve also had cause for tears and, at times, it has been very emotional.”
“I just want to take this moment to thank everyone who has played their part and, as ever, we will look forward and give our best to be right at the front again when another racing year starts.”
