In its seventeenth year in existence, the KTM JUNIOR RACING Program has showcased the talents of over 3000 boys and girls in stadium racing venues worldwide, racing on the very same tracks as their Supercross heroes. While Junior Racing highlights these talented young riders from around the country and around the world, it also promotes riding and racing motorcycles as a family activity – exciting and accessible – especially for kids!
From the first practice lap aboard the 2019 KTM 50 SX motorcycle to the final race, KTM JUNIOR RACING offers a safe, supportive and entertaining environment for all riders, parents and fans. KTM JUNIOR RACING is a fantastic opportunity for participants to immerse themselves in the excitement of Supercross from a very unique perspective, and to enjoy the sport as a fun and rewarding experience.
For 2019, the application process
is available online. Interested riders must meet the requirements stated in the official rules, which are found on the registration page.
If a rider is selected to race in KTM JUNIOR RACING, they will receive a Troy Lee Designs gear package which includes a Troy Lee Designs/KTM racing jersey, racing pants, gloves and a limited-edition KTM Racing hat. These items where specially designed and selected to help prepare KTM JUNIOR RACING stars for the biggest racing experience of their lives. And while only one rider may win the event, every racer and every racer's family will take home memories that will last a lifetime.
