Sacramento, CA (May 19) – The BTO Sports-KTM group began off the Outdoor season this previous end of the week amid the opening round of the 2013 AMA Outdoor Motocross Championship on the famous Hangtown MX track in Sacramento, CA. With group rider Michael Byrne coming back to activity close by colleague Andrew Short, the riders put their nerves aside and concentrated on handling the unpleasant Hangtown track.

Occasion RECAP:

Andrew Short rode solid throughout the day. In Moto 1, Short would nail an awesome begin, on account of the energy of his KTM Factory Services Engines, and would wind up engaging inside the best ten. He would get a move on in the last 10 minutes of the moto to complete in sixth place. Moto 2 he rode well on the harsh, square edged track and hung on for predictable best ten ride once more, completing off in tenth. With a 6-10 score, Short would complete the day with seventh by and large.

Byrne would truly sparkle in the second moto on the unpleasant track, utilizing the footing from the Pirelli Scorpion MX tires to keep running in the best 7 for the main portion of the moto, demonstrating that he is a best ten risk as the season advances. Byrne would complete the day with nineteenth by and large.
