We had 10 times World MX Champion and current KTM motocross race director Stefan Everts at KISKA this morning so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos. Stefan has so much knowledge about Motocross that it is always fascinating to talk to him and learn from his experience. Both the bikes and the KISKA designers get faster every time he visits.

14 out of 15 GP’s won in the 2006 season
