Fun with KTM, Part 7 – Fermo Italy MX GP – Herlings get head shaved by Everts and Roczen

Published September 11th, 2011

KTM has had quite a successful run in the World Motocross Championships. So many world titles since they revamped their entire racing program a few years ago.

But they also are a ‘family’. A great, big, happy family.

Today, after the last round of the GP series, round 15 in Fermo, Italy, they had a little presentation. You’ll see that coming soon as a feature on Supercross.com

But here’s just part – to show you what a nice, big, happy family they are : )

I’m not sure if someone lost a bet, or someone won a bet, or both. All I know is – Stefan Everts got to shave all the hair off of today’s MX2 GP winner Jeffrey Herlings. And then Ken Roczen got involved in the ‘shaving’.

It was quite a lot of fun, and it shows you what a big, happy, family team enviroment they have going on in Europe. Their goal is to reproduce the same in North America, with the same type of results.

Hopefully these photos will convey part of that story of today’s ‘celebratin’. And, as mentioned, there will be more later, including video.

It started with Stefan Everts shaving Jeffrey’s hair. Something about a bet won. Or lost.

Then Ken Roczen, the new 250 MX2 World Motocross Champion, got involved in the shaving. Jeffrey, who won today’s MX2 GP, was totally cool with it. Such a great team atmosphere …

Surprisingly, Steffi Laier, Womens’ World Motocross Champion for KTM, made an appearance in Italy right after Jeffrey got his head shaved! : )
