Team STR KTM are very pleased to announce that Matiss Karro will be staying with the team for another year.
Up until the end of June Matiss had been having an excellent season and was certainly surprising a lot of people with his impressive form. However he had a big crash at the Swedish GP and is still out of action with a back injury. He is making good progress with his recovery and should be back in light training soon.
Team Manager Steve Turner commented: “I’m really happy to have Matiss back on board again for next year. He is a fantastic rider and a fantastic person and he deserves to be successful. Both the team and KTM will be working hard to give him the support he needs in order that he can continue to improve and get the results we know he is capable of.”
Matiss Karro added: “I am so happy to be staying with Steve and the team. They have really helped me this year and everything was going good until my crash ruined my season. I just want to repay them by getting good results again next year. I can’t wait to get back on a bike but I know I have to wait until my doctor says it is safe to ride again.”
