FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Wey steps up in the mud and brings the KTM 450SX home to a season-best 7th in main

 

CARLSBAD, Calif., (Jan. 29, 2008) – Team MDK/KTM’s Nick Wey gave the factory KTM 450SX is best Supercross class finish to date,  placing 7th in the mud at San Francisco’s AT&T Park, Round Four of the  2008 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.

 

Besieged by torrential rains, Wey got out of the start mid pack and worked his way up to 10th place in a furious first lap. Wey then continued to pick off some of the top pros, as well as keeping other behind him, and moved up to 7th place in the rain-shortened main event – one spot behind reigning AMA Outdoor National MX champ Grant Langston.

 

“The key to doing well in a mudder is being patient and remaining upright and on the track,” said Wey. “I was pretty much able to do that tonight. My KTM 450SX performed flawlessly, providing the power when I needed it, but also showing how well balanced and connected the bike is to even the most adverse conditions.”

 

With the effort Wey moved into a tie for 10th place overall in the standings with Josh Hill, each with 40 points.

 

“The plan is to continue to improve and eventually get the KTM up on the podium,” said Wey. “I feel that’s a realistic goal and I certainly have the backing of my team and sponsors in order to achieve that goal.”

 

Next up for Wey and the MDK/KTM team is the third installment of the Anaheim Angel Stadium trilogy, Feb. 2nd.

 

Also stepping up to back Wey this year, along with MSR and KTM, are a number of high level sponsors including: Spy Optic, Oxtar, Vans and Bell.
