KTM and Live Nation signed a three-year contract to continue the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge (KJSC), held during the AMA Supercross series for the past 10 years.
The KJSC has allowed more than 2,500 children to demonstrate their skills in front of thousands of Supercross fans.
"Over the past decade, the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge has become an integral part of each Supercross event,” said Todd Jendro, Sr. Director of Operations for Live Nation. “The program provides an exciting and entertaining element for our Supercross audience, but more importantly, the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge serves as a shining example of the positive role that motorcycling plays as a family activity. To see the joy on the faces of both the competitors and the fans is rewarding and our company is proud to be able to work with KTM to continue to promote this positive example of our sport."
"Celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the KJSC program this year was an incredible milestone," said Sel Narayana, KTM Vice President of Event Promotions said, "The effort that Live Nation and KTM have presented to the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge shows the true testament of what passion can accomplish for the sport of motorcycling.
"These young riders are the future of our sport and KTM is here to nurture their dreams."
