Just two days before the start of the MXGP world championship in Matterley Basin, the team KTM Sarholz announces the collaboration with the former world champion Jordi Tixier. The 27 year old Frenchman will compete the european rounds of the world championship for the german team.
Andre Sarholz: “After the decision was made that Jordi quits with his old team, we stayed in contact and try to make the deal happen. With the support of our sponsors and, especially, KTM we find a solution. We believe in his strength and are looking forward to a successfull season.”
Jordi Tixier: “I’m not the type of person who gives up, I’m blessed to have a supporting family and a solid team believing and trusting in me. We raised our heads again and we put in work all we have to be in position on the grid. I thank the team Sarholz who did the best to be able to take me on board in 2020. The work done these last 3 weeks was very good. None of this would be possible without the support of factory KTM Austria and the trust of all my loyal personal partners, and sports partner.”Author: KTM Sarholz
