At the Maxxis U.S. Open of Supercross the Motorcycle Safety Foundation DirtBike School displayed its continued support of youth in motorcycling by presenting each of the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge (KJSC) participants with a $100.00 Education Savings Bond.
“Safety is a priority with KTM’s KJSC Program as well as family fun sport and we are pleased at the dedication the MSF DirtBike School has shown to youth and motorcycling. The savings bonds presented to our KJSC riders send the message that as fun as motorcycling may be, receiving a proper education must be a priority as well.” Says Selvaraj Narayana, Vice President Racing & Event Promotions for KTM North America, Inc.
“The MSF is a proponent of education of all types. Obviously our focus is rider safety through education, our hope is that by presenting these Savings Bonds to the KJSC participants they’ll remember that obtaining an education is a cornerstone to success, including success on and off the racetrack. states Robert Gladden, OHV Program Manager for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. “We appreciate the support of KTM Sportmotorcycle and all of our member companies in our efforts to increase motorcycle safety. continues Gladden.
