Standing Construct KTM MXGP team switches to Dunlop tyres

Front running FIM MXGP World Championship team Standing Construct KTM has announced it is switching to Dunlop Geomax tyres for the 2019 season.

The team’s trio of KTM 450SX-F bikes will be supplied with the latest specifications from the extensive Dunlop Geomax range as part of the team’s ambitious drive to achieve regular success in the highest level of motocross sport.

The team has already announced an exciting rider line-up with Brit Max Anstie, Dutchman Glenn Coldenhoff and Italian Ivo Monticelli lining up on the Dunlop equipped bikes, which receive KTM Factory technical support.

Standing Construct KTM’s Tim Mathys said: “We are excited to announce a switch to Dunlop tyres for our MXGP World Championship programme. After extensive back to back testing our riders were absolutely convinced about the potential of the Dunlop Geomax range. This performance persuaded us to commit to a long term technical partnership.”

Wim Van Achter, Motorsport Manager at Dunlop Motorcycle Europe added: “Standing Construct KTM is the second team to choose to switch to Dunlop Geomax for 2019 after conducting back to back tests between different tyre manufacturers. Their decision proves the success of our intensive product development programme of recent years which has seen Dunlop completely refresh its MXGP range”.
