McGrath chases down eighth Supercross Championship. KTM début to be tomorrow in Geneva at THQ World Supercross GP.

AURORA, Ill. (December 6, 2002) - Seven-time supercross champion Jeremy McGrath will make his debut on a KTM at Round 1 of THQ World Supercross GP presented by Thor and Parts Unlimited tomorrow at Palexpo in Geneva Switzerland on December 7, 2002.

McGrath, the all-time winningest rider in supercross history, signed a comprehensive four-year agreement with KTM Sportmotorcycles this year after a five-year relationship with Yamaha.

"Adding Jeremy (McGrath) to our supercross racing efforts is a 'win/win' situation for KTM," said Rod Bush, president of KTM Sportmotorcycle USA. "Jeremy is a great champion who can still win races and titles. His experience and expertise will be a tremendous benefit to the development of our product line as well as our younger riders coming up out of the 125cc ranks. By choosing KTM Jeremy reinforces the prominence and credibility of both the company and KTM racing as a force in motocross."

The winner of 72 250cc supercross main events, McGrath is ready to take on the world in pursuit of the THQ World Supercross GP title. His dominance in 1993 set the stage for McGrath to become the world's greatest supercross rider. As he enters his 11th season in the 250cc class, his quest to win a championship is as strong as it was in 1993.

"MC (McGrath) still has something to prove and with our new 250 SX Jeremy is gearing up for a THQ World Supercross GP title, " said Ron Heben, team manager, KTM Sportmotorcycles."
