KTM and Tyla Rattray mutually agree to part in 2009
KTM and its factory rider Tyla Rattray have reached a mutual decision to terminate the South African’s existing contract for the 2009 racing season so that Tyla may pursue his long-term dream of competitive riding in the USA.
The company, while still convinced that the MX2 World Champion’s career would have been better served by remaining in the Motocross World Championship to contest the MX1 title in 2009, nevertheless respects his desire and wishes him well in the next phase of his racing career.
Rumor has it that Tyla is going to be riding for Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki. We’ll know tomorrow night.
