For 2019 the Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/WPS/KTM team returns to a two-rider, 450-only effort for the Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship (the team had two 250 positions in 2018, but has shelved the program). Blake Baggett and Benny Bloss both remain with the team and will race factory-backed KTM 450 SX-F motorcycles with support from WP, FMF Racing, ODI, Sunstar, Engine Ice, Motorex, Motion Pro, Dubya, Galfer, Hinson, ASV, Acerbis, D’Cor Visuals. Former racer Michael Byrne will return to his position as Team Manager.
The images above reveal a new sponsor in 51FIFTY Energy, which gets branding on the front fender and helmet. This, unfortunately, marks the demise of 51FIFTY Energy’s in-house team which supported racers in the 250 West Coast region of the Monster Energy Supercross Series through the past few years.
Because Western Power Sports, the parent company of the FLY Racing brand, is a title sponsor of the team both riders will wear FLY Racing apparel and helmets, along with SCOTT goggles and Alpinestars boots.
