Watch "Behind the Machine" Episode 4

Thursday, November 1, 2012
The KTM webseries Behind the Machine continues with “Episode 4: Building a Champion.” Picking up after Marvin Musquin’s big crash early in the 2011 season, hopes turned to Mike Alessi and Andrew Short in the premier class to bring KTM its first title in America. Alessi was able to return to Round 3 following his wreck in the opener at Hangtown, but he just couldn’t keep pace with the likes of Ryan DungeyChad Reed or Ryan Villopoto. Short experienced one of his worst motocross seasons ever in 2011 and both riders were subsequently let go from the KTM effort. Looking ahead to the 2012 season, Roger de Coster was hoping to square things away to make a bid for Dungey to join Team Orange and give the Austrian marque a firm shot at an American title.
